For Today - The March Edition

Outside my window…the sun is shining and melting the snow left from Wednesday’s storm. Hopefully, that was the last blast of winter.

I am thankful ….the days are getting longer. We “spring forward” to Daylight Savings Time this weekend, and while folks will be extra tired and grumpy for a week, the extra daylight at the end of the day is nice.

From the kitchen… Last night, I made my friend’s Taco Soup recipe and it was a big hit. A huge pot of it – all gone. I’m going to heat up something easy tonight. I’ve cooked every night this past week and need a break.

I am wearing… Skinny jeans with knee high brown boots and a lime green polo under an aqua sweater. I was going for spring like colors.

I am creating … nothing right now, but I need to get started on the first two months of our 2013 Blurb Photo book.

I am going… to pick up the girl from soccer practice and then take her to the Prairie Land Feed Store so she can pick out new reins to replace the ones she broke last night. I hope I can get out of that store without spending over $50, but when it comes to horse gear, that’s a challenge.

I am readingWild by Cheryl Strayed – her account of hiking the Pacific Coast Trail alone. I admire her guts, perseverance and will to make such a journey, but I am finding her character to be a tiny bit annoying.

I am hoping… my IT Band will stop bothering my knee. Yes, I probably overwork it and need to stretch and roll it more…

I am listening to …. Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris, featuring Florence Welch.

Around the house… chaos reigns, as usual! I still haven’t removed the Christmas Wreath from the front door. OK, I think I can change that out this weekend!

One of my favorite thingsMerrell Captiva High boots I bought a couple weeks back, that I am wearing today. I got compliments on them while out at lunch today.

A few plans for the rest of the week… tonight is book club night and we will be discussing Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl (it’s a great read). Tomorrow morning is the official kick off to the soccer season with a parents’ meeting and girls’ fitness test. Add in some running and normal errands and the weekend will be gone in a flash.

A picture to share:

At lunch today - the old time candy shoppe in town - wearing those boots I mentioned above.

Have a great weekend!

I also read Wild - wasn't one of my favorite books about walking the long trails. There were times I wished she had recorded more about her surroundings - had less extra-curricular activites, but I guess that is her as a person. At times it seemed like a miracle that she survived with her lack of planning.
I have also read Bill Bryson's A Walk In the Woods -- Appalachian Trail -- it is very funny - and one that I will reread.

We had a full day of sunshine here too, and with temps in the 40s, it actually felt warm compared to what it's been. Surely was nice to spend a lot of time outside.

I love those boots!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Book club sounds like fun, maybe I´ll find one to join one day! :-)
