Today I am linking up with Anne In Residence’s Currently!
Fixing: I am so ready for spring! I am so over all my favorite soups and stews so we are playing with different recipes and meals. Lately we are loving a Mediterranean Tuna Salad I found on Pinterest, and also some nights, we are just enjoying a charcuterie board of sorts, with meats and cheese and fruits and veggies – and of course delicious bread too!
Hearing: The birds singing in the morning!! This has been a wonderful spirit lifter – I love hearing their chatter and calls and chirps. All their lovely conversation telling me that spring is on the way.
Borrowing: This month we are borrowing a lot of books from the library about ponds, birds, snails (my favorite!), and worms for our Exploring Nature with Children curriculum we do for some enrichment, and also as part of the Kid’s Moon Club. This month is the Worm moon, one of my favorites last year! It is named for the worm because this is the month usually that the little worms start wiggling their way to the earth’s surface, digging out of winter- kind of like how I feel this time of year too!
Feeling: All sorts of things! Spring fever for sure. A bit reminiscent as my son turned 5 on the second. A bit of anxiety about some of the news (coronavirus is sort of freaking me out). Excited for all the fun things this month holds. By the time this is posted we will have celebrated Wyatt’s birthday, just our little family, on a small family vacation, and will be getting ready for his big party. Frustration at not having the time to finish some of our home projects. But mostly I am feeling hopeful, content, and happy.
Recommending: British Cozy Mystery television shows. Nature walks. Reading The Hands-On Home: A Seasonal Guide to Cooking, Preserving, and Natural Homekeeping. I am so in love with this book! I am also now a huge fan of ordering from Azure Standard as well. I love that they will deliver for a fraction of a cost to a drop location near you! I have my cart already started for April’s drop. And if you don’t want to wait for the drop, you can always choose to have your order shipped.
What about you all? How are you feeling these days? What is going on in your world?
