I hope your February is going well and that you had a really lovely Valentine’s Day.

For this week’s prompts I don’t think there’s anything you need to do to plan ahead. We are still focusing on kindness and giving to others in small ways, but there’s a couple prompts on other topics as well.

I’ve been feeling a little like, “where are you, Christmas?” lately. I think it is the weather around here. It is very blah. Not cold enough to feel wintry and absolutely too wet to feel like it’s anything but muddy outside. Which it isn’t. So I was happy to take a break and watch Christmas Inheritance, which is still available to stream on Netflix. My husband and both like to watch this one frequently, because it’s not too ridiculous and the acting is believable, which you can’t always say about all Christmas movies. But I especially enjoy Christmas Inheritance because almost every single scene, indoor and outdoor, includes beautiful Christmas decorations. The plot of the movie is also in line with the spirit of caring for and giving to others. Also: Andie MacDowell sings a very lovely Silent Night at the very end. I’m starting to notice that this is a common way to end a Christmas film, and I love it.

Someday soon we all will be together

Yesterday I made pizzas and an apple pie for Pi Day. I also stood at my kitchen calendar with some white-out tape and erased at least a dozen events from our calendar. Cancelled due to quarantine or social distancing mandates. We are cheerfully doing our part because...

Johnny Appleseed Day

March 11 (tomorrow) is National Johnny Appleseed day. That is not his birthday (which is September 26), but rather it coincides with apple-planting season. I absolutely LOVE the Disney version of the Johnny Appleseed story, originally presented in the 1948 film Melody...
