March 1, 2017
Yesterday afternoon I went for a walk. The sun was high in the sky and I could actually feel its warmth on my face. When this happens, the day I wait for all winter has arrived. It was the last day of February and it was finally time for me to haul my camp chair out to the garden to read by the side of the warm house. I poked my head around the corner to see a perfect patch of grass waiting. Armed with a blanket, a cup of coffee, and the book I'm currently reading, I settled into my chair. 

The snow is still coming down. It will be months before I scratch around in the dirt. But, my days of reading outside have returned! I'll remember this winter as the one that taught me to truly enjoy the snow and even the cold. Whatever happens to make the sun's warmth reach us is happening and I'm ready to bask in it. 

Watching: Some things I hope to watch soon are the new season of Grantchester (Come on, England. We Americans want in on Sidney and Geordie tooo!), The Help, Spiderman with my youngest brother, and Hidden Figures with my Mom.

I have this horrible habit of forgetting about movies by the time they're on DVD. Every year, I tell myself I'm going to start a list...Some current ones on that list: The BFG, the new Bourne, Collateral Beauty, and Fences.

Eating: Lettuce/mayonnaise/cheese sandwiches on toast, poached eggs with toast, cheese and green onion omelets with toast, pancakes, and all of this. I suppose these things are better than the grilled cheese sandwiches with chips and ketchup that seemed to be my lunch more often than not in January.

Saying: "Please clean up after yourself." "When can I go to ___?" "I miss you." "Are you keeping this or can I throw it away?" "BASK, Victoria." Have anything to add to this list?

Wearing: My hair in a bun held up by 3 or 4 bobby pins (a new trick I learned recently). Shades of red and gray on my nails. My black skirt or a pair of jeans with sweaters and vests and long sleeved shirts and sweatshirts.

Posting: New recipes. Words for you soul. Blogging strategies. Book lists.

Linking up with Anne and Carrie.

What are you currently watching, eating, saying, wearing, and posting? 


  1. How are you wearing your hair in a bun with only bobby pins?? Teach me!

  2. Is there a new season of Grantchester coming?! YAY! And I always love a good book list - going to check that out now :)

  3. I doubt I'll ever have enough hair to wear mine in a bun, because I have no patience whatsoever. I did wear mine in a french twist yesterday, which is remarkable, considering that I usually do nothing at all to it. Haha!

  4. I've noticed how the sun is stronger now ~ time to start getting more Vitamin D and working on a tan! What are you reading?

  5. Yes to the buns with bobby pins! It's such a helpful trick!


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
