Snow is once again a blanket of white on this town and forest, so I especially appreciate the kitchen windowsil covered with potted herbs and bright lemons and tomatoes.
I was feeling a little sick the past few days and was glad to discover the Alan Titchmarsh gardening show, which kept me thoroughly entertained and dreaming of springtime and my own small garden. He makes everything look so easy. Watching the plants thrive and grow on that show made the snow outside seem quite out of place. But I know that it won't be too long now.
I also watched a few episodes of the fabulous, adorable Jamie Oliver's 'At Home,' and find his passion and enthusiasm for everything he does so incredibly infectious.
I feel more and more that what we read and watch effects us, and I am feeling drawn to positive, funny, inspiring books, movies, and television shows. My mother in law loves reading children's books, and I think she might be onto something. I think it might keep your brain and your spirit young and optimistic.
So I am welcoming positive forces and people into my life now, and looking for creative ways to fill the remaining winter days.
