Pruning, reading, and writing
My, this sudden hot weather changed my To Do list! We have had to drop some items off our list and add lots of pruning, weeding, cutting back, etc. Not to mention dragging a small tree limb from our yard to the forest! These were all projects for late March and early April in normal years.
I'm trying to get some writing accomplished in the midst of the outside chores. Hopefully tomorrow (Saturday) I can get started on a new Saturday pantry series I've wanted to do for awhile. It will include simple "off the top of my head" stocking up and pantry suggestions each week.
There are two new writing assignments. One will be introduced next week and the other is for the Living Better at 50 website (of course, I am only 39...). I love their site but wasn't sure I could squeeze in any more writing when they asked if I wanted to be a contributor. However, when they said they could use some of my blog posts then the answer was an easy yes! They recently included a couple of my pantry posts. That website can be found... here.
I have a long (and belated) Recent Reading post to write. I did a lot of reading when I had a cold. I can share with you the lovely magazine I've been reading... here. I don't purchase many magazines these days but the Victoria Classics Tea Time Bliss magazine is gorgeous and has yummy looking recipes. It's an inexpensive "get away from it all" vacation. :)
I am feeling much better. While it may be unusually hot here for March (highs in the 80s when we are usually in the 50s), I am enjoying the sunshine and warmth. Miss Victoria, on the other hand, can't understand what has happened.
We really don't want to turn the air conditioning on (as it will eventually... maybe... return to normal temps) so the furry feline has been found stretched out completely waiting for the next breeze to come in through the window.
That is when she isn't sitting in a bedroom window looking at birds through the screen, wistfully desiring to become a famous feline bird hunter.
Picture... yes, they are fake. ;)
