Things I am thinking about today...
- My husband gave me this colorful African Violet for Valentine's Day and I am loving the prettiness of it sitting on my kitchen window sill. Flowers make me happy, especially ones that last. Does anyone have any tricks for keeping African Violets healthy? I have a green thumb outside, but inside with any house plant - not so much : -)
- This picture of the happy, little Crawley family from Downton Abbey makes me sad. I had read the spoilers and knew what was coming, but it was still a shock. My fear for season four, is that the softer side of Lady Mary will be lost with Matthew and she will become bitter and mean. I have read that the story will pick up six months after Matthew's death, so it will be interesting to see how the family is coping. Too bad we have to wait until January 2014 to find out!
- My book club meets tonight and I am reading fast and furious to finish The Language of Flowers. I like it, though it is a little depressing how damaged the main character is, from growing up in the foster care system. The use of foreshadowing makes it an interesting read, as the chapters switch from past to present. As always, our discussion should be a good one.
- The 40 Bags in 40 Days challenge is moving right along. So far I have emptied the dressers in my guest room of old Halloween costumes and school uniforms. Megan helped organize a linen closet too. Our count is 4 bags to donate and 2 bags of trash.
