...i've been hit with the cold
that's kept paul (and me)
awake with a cough for the past few nights.
it's left me with an achingly sore throat,
a sleepy mind,
and a lack of inspiration.
...i celebrated my brother mart's
milestone (25th!) birthday
(happy birthday little brother!)
...i've enjoyed the snow
and longed for spring
in almost equal parts.
...i attended an event called
"reading local food"
at our main library branch.
it focused on books about eating locally
(i promptly checked out the locavore's handbook)
and featured a few local farmers, bakers,
who inspired me to think & act locally
now more than ever.
after much reflection,
to continue using the name
for my blog
(in part because of all your lovely,
...i took a walk in the knee-deep snow
in the woods around my house
(before this cold hit in full force, of course)
...i finished watching all ten oscar-nominated
"best pictures" of the year
(have you seen them all yet? they are amazing.)
...i daydreamed about
~buying a house~
~starting a family~
~tending to a lush vegetable garden~
~retiring to a little cabin on a lake~
~living again a modern, urban lifestyle~
and also daydreamed about how to reconcile
all the things i want to do
into my one short life
(i guess i had better get started!)
how has the week been for you,
