Things I Love Thursday | Green Things

These random 40-degree days and heavy storms have gotten a rumbling going.

It’s almost I feel like the roots stirring underground, and the seeds quaking with waking seedling tendrils inside.

I can’t wait for spring. I’m going to run around the newly budding forests and take as many pictures as my wee camera will hold.

A Day Without Words | A Grey Bookish Day

Sunday was a dreary, rainy day, made even more soggy by the melting of the week’s blizzard. We picked up a little salt water taffy (thanks to Kaylah for reminding me how much I love it) with the groceries, took a trip to the bookstore, then stopped by our foxy Thor-looking neighbor’s apartment (who happens to be a special effects makeup artist – swoon) for a Holy Grail party. We left quickly to get over-tired bear to bed, but not before she stole some of his fruit. Papa Bear went back over for the movie portion of the festivities while I got a little much-needed me time. It was a good day.

How did you spend your weekend?

Favorite Things | New Books | March

This monthly new books tradition is one of the best ideas I have had in a long time. I’m an obsessive researcher, and although I also have this magical thing called the internet, I still love being able to sit down with a great book, fiction or non, and read and reference for real.

Favorite Things | New Books | March

March’s selections got quite mystical. Maybe it was the rain that day, maybe it was the fact that spring is right around the corner, I don’t know. But vegetables, ancient magical symbolism and faeries seem just right for this time of year.

365 Photo Challenge | Day 71 | Shamrock

Day 71 - Shamrock

Day 71 of the 365 photo challenge is “Shamrock.” Oh how I love when Papa Bear wears his tight T-shirts. Funny how everyone thinks this Norwegian/Czech/German boy is Irish around this time of year.

365 Photo Challenge | Day 68 | Me

Day 68 - Me

Day 68 of the 365 photo challenge is “Me.” In a rare moment of taking care of myself, I give myself a quick facial. While getting back to emails.
