Imagining March:: A Month Map
Hooray for March! I think this month perhaps receives more adulation than it is due just because we are released from the grip of January and February. Even with bad weather this month we know we can at least say, "It won't be long now!" Spring is just arou...

February Reads
Here are the books I finished this month and a few of my thoughts on them. I suppose, first though, I should preface this by mentioning that my definition of "finished" does not mean that I necessarily read it all the way through. In this instance it means,...

Planner/Journal Play for the Weekend
It's 4:56 pm on Friday as I begin my post, which means the weekend is upon us. Lovely weekend. Hopefully it will mean some r&r for you. That's not always the case, of course. Lots of errands get run on the weekends and I may have one or two tomorrow as well...

Time for Some Paper and Journal Love
So after all that talk about all the e-products I've been using lately, I thought it was time to share the paper love. This is a perfect month to do that because not only does Valentine's Day fall in this month, but it is also International Correspondence W...

My Own Social Experiments
Back in 2011 I wrote here, "But I love projects. I really do!  For me, they make the ordinary extraordinary." I found that quote by searching under one of my tags, " projects ," because I've written about them more than once. And my sentiment about them has...

February Favorites!
Ahh... I can hardly believe that the shortest, longest month is about to come to an end once again. :) Do you feel that way about February? I have had a number of friends tell me this month is one of their least liked of the year. For those of us in the nor...

Happy Monday, Everyone! I've got a busy day in store, so I am going to be tossing some chili into my slow cooker this morning to save me from having to prepare it later. I went back through my recipe tags and was really surprised to find out that I have nev...

Thinking Yellow and Joyful, & Chic!

Vegetarian Mardi Gras Menu!
We don't generally celebrate Mardi Gras in a big way around here, but I thought this year we could at least observe the day with some good, Southern food. Pancakes are a traditional food of Fat Tuesday. They contain fat, milk, and eggs: all the things that ...

Introduction
I am a happily married, homeschooling mother of two high school girls. Moved back to Minnesota after an 8-year "explore" in Florida. I am currently a student,studying Library Information Technology, because I think libraries are one of humankind's greatest inventions! An ISFJ, I love to think, plan and make lists, savor the seasons and enjoy the flavors of a plant-based diet. My relationship with Jesus keeps me grounded and lifts me high all at the same time. I write about all of that, plus some knitting and art too at my blog, my home online since 2006: Golightly Place!
