Hello Friday! I cannot tell you how glad I am going to be to see February (and winter) in my rear view mirror. I know I still have lots of gray weather in the days ahead but the evenings are stretching out longer.
It just feels better. Like moving forward. Into the light.
For February I have been telling stories about Walking in the Dark, so it should come as no surprise that in March my story theme will be Walking in the Light.
Speaking of walking, in order to catch up on blogging for #48walks, the above four pictures represent walks 5, 6, 7, & 8. I’m recording them here and calling them blogged.
Is that cheating? I hear you asking.
I love seeing the walks that other bloggers are sharing. Here are a few from the last couple of weeks.
And here are a few more of my favorite internet finds for weekend reading.
Advice about completing a novel from a great (new to me) website on writing.
A Story about Winter Adventure in Scotland (There’s a reason I’m waiting for spring!)
This Story about How Religion Ruined My Childhood made me sad + curious to read her book.
Scotland is voting this year on becoming independent from the United Kingdom, which is super fascinating to me. I actually learned a lot about the relationship between England and Scotland by reading this funny apology from one country to another.
I loved this piece on how travel can help you through a breakup. I think these principles apply to almost any setback or hardship in life. Travel is a break not just from my current circumstances, but from who I am in my current circumstances. I am always surprising myself when I travel by what I can accomplish by myself.
I’m learning my way around my new kitchen and we are now a five minute walk from the grocery store, so I am hoping to try this curry and this lasagna this weekend. I might even go crazy and try these muffins in Tiny Oven 2.0.
I’ve had a few requests for pictures of the new house and since I’m all about the nature feed on Instagram, I have started a Vine account to do videos of just whatever is happening around here. No filters + No editing = No Pressure! It is a little bit boring to me, but at least you can see what our world looks like. If you want.
I hope you have a lovely weekend and that March brings you sunshine instead of wind + rain!
