Happy Monday my friends,
I hope you are starting the new week after an enjoyable weekend. My menfolk were out of town over the weekend, which was an invitation for me to just snuggle down into my home and chill.
But before I did that, I had a whirlwind Friday which included lunch ‘with' Giada de Laurentiis (and 300 of my closest friends) to raise funds for GLOW (Girl's Leadership Academy of Wilmington). What a fantastic lunch and a fantastic organization. I also had the opportunity to meet some other North Carolina media/blogger types at local restaurant Friday night (The Bistro at Topsail) which was a treat for the palate and the mind.
So, with my broken foot, I was thrilled to just spend the rest of the weekend knitting, relaxing and planning! And lucky for me, this weekend Amazon Prime's new series “Z, The Beginning of Everything” debuted. It's the story of Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald and it was the perfect show to sit in front of on a cold winter day and work on a knit blanket. I don't claim to be movie/tv critic, I just know what I like and I really did like this. Yes…past tense; I went through all 10 episodes (but they were only 1/2 hour each).
Tsh has a way of making me think and her post on making friends was no exception. She bares her heart and says what many of us feel.
I chuckled at the cheeky-ness of this post, until he came to the ‘drawbridge techinique', which is actually a quite useful thing to know.
It's not too early to start thinking! I'm already pondering my container gardens for this spring and so this is timely encouragement.
How about a feel good? When I come across one of these videos, I'm reminded of the goodness of us all. We don't see these little nuggets on the nightly news, wish we would. I, for one, need these reminders.
I have always loved Hot and Sour soup, but haven't really attempted to make it. This is on my meal plan for the week.
There you have it my friends…a smattering from around the world wide web.
Wishing you a week full of good things.
