Happy, Happy Monday friends!
We were treated to a lovely weekend here in Southeast North Carolina. After an unusually harsh (for this area) bit of winter weather in January that included snow, ice and freezing temperatures, our temperatures lately have been delightful. So much so that many plants in our garden are getting an early start on their growth.
One of my favorite garden chores is cutting back the old growth on our holly ferns to reveal the new fronds searching for the light. I spent a couple hours on Saturday completing this chore…now I just need to watch the forecast carefully for the next couple of weeks in case of a late frost. I do see that our weather is going to much more seasonable in the near future.
While we knew the outcome already, we watched the Women's Hockey game between the US and Canada for the gold medal. What a great game…and hard to see either team not win. But, of course I was cheering on the women from the US. I mean, it'd been 20 years after all!
And while we're talking about winning women, check out the story of Jade Hameister!
What do you think are the hardest winter olympic sports?
And, it's curious, but every 4 years, just about this time of the year, my hubby becomes the world's greatest curling fan!
These questions were formulated for team building at work, but would be equally good for family gatherings or other social gatherings.
Herbs that grow well without a lot of light! Think windowsill…
How lovely would this be on your Easter or Spring table!?
For those late winter dinners that call for comfort food.
Enjoy the week my friends. Stay warm or enjoy the warm weather…whichever fits your forecast!
