Weekend Reading – February 6

Gerry brought home daffodils this week. Can spring be far behind?

In some ways it’s hard to believe it’s already February. Groundhog Day has come and gone and the groundhogs have not agreed on whether we’re in for an early spring or six more weeks of winter. Canada’s “official’ weather prognosticator, Wiarton Willie, did not see his shadow and therefore predicted that the warm weather is right around the corner.

Looking outside at the snow that fell this week casts significant doubt on his ability to see into see into the future though. Talking with my daughter in Northern British Columbia further taints Willie’s abilities as she described road closures as result of the massive snowfall overnight–and more on the way. I’m still choosing to believe that winter is on its way out I’ll be getting pedicures and going barefoot very soon; denial can be a beautiful thing.

Meanwhile here are few interesting tidbits from around the web I came across this week. I hope you enjoy them.

I’ve been trying out a few essential oils recently and found this article about how Essential Oils Might Be the New Antibiotics very interesting.

Happy Friday and 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 and the thin places where faith intersects.
