one: Yesterday's high temp and today's forecasted one are in the forties. That feels like a heat wave after weeks where we have been lucky to hit twenty.
thermal long johns are a life saver. I may or may not have acquired them in four different colors.
three: I have been cooking more since we've been mostly housebound. We canned cherries last summer and they made the best filling for crepes.
five: I have been reading a lot more lately. Last year, my Goodreads goal was forty books and I think I surpassed that by four or five. If I keep up the pace, this year I should do even better than that. I bought myself a kindle last year and love it. Our library system has an electronic section and I have been reading things I might not have otherwise.
six: We cut the cable cord back in November. Our cable company is now requiring that we use an interface box for which they were eventually going to charge us. We only had basic, over the air cable which we now get via antennas. The same stations, but free. Got to love that.
seven: I have felt like I lost my mojo writing here. So, I decided to get a Jumpstart on writing more regularly by creating a linkup. I am so grateful for the ladies that joined in with me. Being accountable for getting the link out there each week has been helpful. And, reading what everyone has written has been enjoyable.
eight: I needed a calendar for my office at work and was trying to find one I really liked. On a business trip a week or so ago, a coworker gave me a belated Christmas gift - a calendar from the local animal rescue. And a week before that, I won one from the local quilt shop. An embarrassment of riches!
nine: I recently got hooked on the TV show Rizzoli and Isles. I was getting the DVDs from the library, but they didn't have all the seasons. When I searched online for the show, Hulu had it and they had a month trial for free. Once I finished that series, I started watching The Librarians. What a fun show! It's like Harry Potter for adults.
ten: And mostly, I am thankful for the hundreds of thousands of people that showed up for the March for Life this past Friday. My guess is that if you watched network news, you probably never knew it happened. But it did. Check out the time lapse video.
