Living and Learning: The Week Ahead...

I found this documentary on Russia's Most Famous Classical Art Institute to be completely fascinating:

In My Knitting Basket
I am beginning to finish up the hat that I have on my needles and am looking ahead to my next knitting project.  I crave the color green in March and am hoping the yarn that I ordered over the weekend is what I've been hoping for.  I'm looking forward to casting on to a Golden Wood Cowl when it arrives.

I wandered into the library the other day to pick up a few books for the children and was confronted with a large display of paperback copies of The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson.  The libraries in our area will be participating in The Big Read for the month of March, which means that I can borrow a copy of the book and attend several programs at the library that relate to Dickinson.  I always get the urge to read Emily at this time of year, so I am going to dive in to this opportunity!

Out in the Garden
In addition to the snowdrops that we'll be planting this week, I also have a few lily of the valley roots to pop into the ground.  I am hopeful that the daffodils we planted in the autumn will be up in the next few weeks.  I love old-fashioned flowers and am hoping to add one or two news ones to the rectory grounds each year.

Church in the Home
This is our final week of eating meat before Pascha.  My menu plan for the next seven days reflects that fact and is chock full of delicacies.  Everyone's favorite meals are represented including my choice on Saturday:  I'm hoping for lunch at my favorite burger joint for my 36th birthday!
