How is everyone enjoying this never ending winter? I don't find it all that lovely. When I look out the window in the morning and see a new sheet of fresh white snow splayed across my yard I can feel my body tensing. After a few cups of coffee and reminding myself that I'm being obnoxious I am able to move forward with my day, despite my initial reaction to the weather. I love all seasons so I don't particularly hate snow, I just believe by the time March rolls around we should have more sunshine! There is no better feeling than the sun warming your face on a beautiful day after a relentless winter. I was walking into the grocery store last week and had to stop in the parking lot and lift my head a little higher because I could actually feel my face soaking in the sunshine. We are finally having more of those sunny brisk days where you can almost believe that the spring peaking through. The spring is a surge of new life, and I am endlessly astonished by the transition. The past few weeks I have been busy with the spring semester hustle, and I have also been taking more time to journal and read books that I love. This blog is more of an update for my readers+family+friends+random people who accidentally stumbled across this blog. As a life update it's important for me to report I've been watching Game of Thrones and it's a game changer. This past year I've transitioned into an elderly woman who can't stay up past 10pm and no longer possesses the capacity to drink on week nights, but I have been become the kind of person who splurges every so often to stay up and watch an episode of GOT with my roommate/best friend/breakfast enthusiast - Sidney. This show has been out for 8 years- and is based off a popular book series, so this recommendation doesn't hold a lot of weight. Per usual I've spent too much time writing about television, my apologies. In other news I have been working on a museum exhibit text for one of my public history classes. It has been super interesting diving into research that has allowed me to look through archives. I have also been able to spend time at our local museum for Nez Perce County. I love history, so museums are naturally fascinating to me. I highly recommend visiting any local museums in your area because it supports local public history. I will try to give an update on the project once it is finished.
"It was one of those March days
when the sun shines hot and the wind
blows cold; when it is summer in the light,
and winter in the shade"
