Just discovered soulpancake – perfect for this Pancake Tuesday!!   I like their tag: “Our brain batter of art, culture, science, philosophy, spirituality and humoris designed to open your mind, challenge your friends, and feel damn good.”  Here’s a video that will give you a little lift for the day…enjoy!

It’s funny that a week ago the groundhog predicted an early spring…and now we are digging out from the biggest snowfall we’ve seen in years! It was a bit crazy out there, but today we have a beautiful winter scene, just in time for the Beasley Winterfest. Looking forward to a little skating!  I like the beauty of the icicles that form on my house, but don’t love how then melt into my dining room.  I snapped a few pics before smashing them up and trying to thaw the  downspout. So far, so good.

I love books.  Whether I’m delving in and reading new ideas, or re-discovering old, well worn paths, there is nothing quite as calming as curling up with a tumbler of whiskey, a warm blanket and a good book.  I just started reading Jean Vanier’s Drawn into the Mystery of Jesus, through the Gospel of John.  It is brilliant.  It’s a well written, poetry-filled trek through John, full of Vanier’s thoughts and admonitions.

I’m looking to add some titles to my must read! list.  Any recommendations?   What is saving you?  What is inspiring you?  What are you reading right now?
