Weekend Reading – February 19

It has been a busy week but I found a bit if time to play around with some darker images with my photography.

Tea Break-1-3

It seems that the warm spring-like weather that we’ve been enjoying was a temporary respite. The skies may be cloudy, the valley foggy, the temperature cooler, but I’ve still got garden fever.

I spent some time laying out the plan for this year’s garden using the Mother Earth News garden planner this week and took a trip to the local nursery to pick up a few packets of seeds for things I needed to add to my stash. Oh what a sense of promise the simple act of browsing through seed packets brings! In the next week or so I’ll get my tomato and pepper seeds started and before you know it I’ll be planting peas in the ground.

We’re looking forward to a grand weekend. I hope yours is equally as wonderful whatever your plans may be. Here are a few things I came across in cyberspace this week. I hope you find them as interesting as I did.

  • webcam where you can watch baby hummingbirds grow.
  • list of some professions that, while impacted by changing technology, likely won’t be going away any time soon.
  • Seven simple things you can do to help ease your mind when you get caught up in a cycle of worry.

Happy weekend!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
  1. I take delight in observing your artistic growth since retirement: cooking, now photography, what next? I’m sure you will find new worlds to explore as time goes on.

    After being in the teaching game (which I enjoyed) for 40+ years, I love writing. First, writing my blog, and now my memoir. Thanks for the inspiration, Linda!

  2. Thank you for the garden planning link, Linda. I’m anxious to get my hands in the dirt! Last weekend, I was outside digging up space for a new rose garden. This weekend we are buried in snow.

  3. Love the photos , a simple slice into your life , and 7 things to do to stop us worrying .
    Working this morning but planning on sleep , read , write and radio 4 listening this afternoon .Hope yours is good .
