Welcome March

March is here, still cold and snow on the ground, but the expectation of spring brings joy. It’s like counting down to see the first sprouts breaking through the soil and smiling at us.

The rivers are still frozen, the earth is waiting to explode in color, but for now, the best is to be indoors. I’ve being writing, not as much as I would like, but bits and pieces here and there.

And reading, I’ve joined the GoodReads challenge, and I’m up to read 25 books this year. I’m already in my 3rd one, and I have this pile to read in March.

All of them from women authors about women trying to find her space in this world. Women with different backgrounds (from a math teacher to one that never attended a school), and different decades, but so similar in so many ways. I’ve started the ‘Where the crawdads sing’ and I’m loving it.

Wishing a great new month to you!

Nurt Thurs – A pop of colour

“Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours;

let me swallow the sunset

and drink the rainbow.”

Khalil Gibran

For many days the sun hasn’t shown up, it’s grey in the mornings when I leave for work and dark when I come back. The days are getting longer, but the grey is sticking around here. I bought yellow flowers in the weekend, they are so pretty and make my kitchen warm and colourful.

I haven’t joining Nurturing Thursday for so long. I miss it, and I think it’s time to start to post more, to have and to give more inspiration.

Coziness

Nothing better than leaving the office a little bit early without saying/explaining anything to anyone, just grabbing my bag and my coat and coming back home.

A stolen moment. It’s precious because it isn’t an ordinary moment, it’s something that I was craving for, I listening to my soul and said I deserve it, I need it, so I gave up everything else to be with myself. To be at home, warm, alone, with a cup of tea and a book.

The photo above is from the weekend when we were snowed in. Now I’m writing this blog post and wishing lots of stolen moments to you and of course to myself as well.
