“It was one of those days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
Leave it to Charles Dickens to nail a description.
What is March good for, really? St Patrick’s Day? Sorry, doesn’t cut it. Sometimes Easter but not always. Lots of rain. Slogging through the remnants of cold weather. Slogging through the school year. It’s like one long hump day. It’s probably why so many schools take a break, because everyone needs a little boost of spirits and energy. A little refocus. Time to look at the house and make a spring cleaning list. Time to look at the calendar and make some yearly plans. Time to look at those resolutions and see how you’re doing.
Time to look at the light… and see summer!
Here are some links we’ve put together for you. Happy Saturday, Happy March, Happy Spring!
I don’t want to know how many hours of photoshop were spent on this project but it is cool and a little weird but mostly cool.
Can’t resist a gallery of dresses from this years Oscars. How does Helen Mirren always look so elegant and beautiful??
Hahahahah The Helicopter Bunny
The detail in these illustrations is incredible!
I actually can’t believe how many of these Trader Joe’s items I haven’t even tried. But the Everything but the Bagel seasoning is my fave.
Just call it breakfast and skip the cake vs bread question altogether.
I’ve always felt slightly embarrassed by not liking shrimp when everyone else seems so wild about it. Food aversions are mysterious. Should you try to like foods you hate?
Husband has been telling me this for years now. Maybe I never will open that bakery…
Unforgettable last lines in literature. I love Gilead.
I heard this woman’s TED talk on the radio regarding civility in the workplace. Just another example of good standards of behavior bearing good fruit, which seems obvious and natural. It also got me to thinking about civility in the home. It’s easy to be your most un-civil, so to speak, at home, to those closest to you. But I imagine civility in the home would have similar good effects - increased positivity, increased work ethic, etc.
I surprised myself by scoring 8 out of 10 on this color perception test
You can’t really tire of looking at beautiful photos of the natural world, can you?
