I loved February's Egyptian Pyramids Dishscape! It made me feel like Amelia Peabody all month.
I appreciated this Wall Street Journal article about the therapeutic value of reading books.
I do most of these. The only one I really don't do is audiobooks.
I'm a big believer in the power of routines and schedules.
The December 2020 issue of the The New Era (a magazine I read as a teenager and one that John reads) was the last one before it changed to the new For the Strength of Youth magazine in 2021.
A cute shop in the town next door
I loved Christopher Plummer as Captain Von Trapp. RIP.
Dinner out with Jen and Jill. Friends since junior high!
Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are traitors to New England, but congrats to them on winning the Super Bowl.
Speaking of Tom...(this is a picture in our house)
A cute cookie for Valentine's Day
My mom's front door got "heart attacked" by the young women in her ward. Cute!
A good quote from Dr. Seuss that gets used by the anti-abortion crowd (of which I am a part):
"A person is a person no matter how small."
I got a manicure. The pale pink shade turned out to match my electric toothbrush and Clarisonic skin brush exactly. I guess I'm really attracted to that shade!
The power of good sleep
My high-school history teacher passed away.
We had a Relief Society activity over Zoom led by a woman in the ward who's a professional organizer. I loved her presentation and her slides, and I love organization. It makes my life run so much better!
This woman's obit could be mine! (Knock on wood)
These are some of the reasons I like having a blog.
