There are so many ways to stay current and up on all the happening topics. With the myriad of mobile devices now at our disposal, as well as around the clock news stations–it can at times be a tad overwhelming. While I certainly catch bits & pieces of news that way, being the tactile sort, I still really love sitting in my favorite chair reading the newspaper or just out magazine while enjoying my iced coffee. It makes reading some of those intense stories much more palatable. The sound the newspaper makes when you turn the page, or the feel of the weight of the magazine as you hold it, the comfort and familiarity of my environment, all turn reading into a bit of a ritual that becomes a positive experience. If you have to face the news, doing so in comfort makes so much of it easier to swallow.
If you celebrate Easter, then a “Happy Easter!” to you. If not, may you have a lovely Sunday ahead of you.
From potentially sunny Seattle,
Snow at our place on the island is a rarity, so when it does happen, we are as happy as a clam all bundled up by the fire watching the snow flakes accumulate.
It is just magical to see the trees across the water dusted in white. It was a day of reading, napping and cooking. I made our traditional Sunday eve roasted chicken, followed by freshly made rugelach by TPS, and more reading by the fire.
I caught up on my Vanity Fair issues, which I always love. A fun little side note which tickled me. My First Avenue Watson Kennedy shop was abuzz with Vanity Fair staff over the New Year’s week-end. One of the contributing editors was getting married on New Year’s Eve (how incredibly romantic & sweet) in Seattle. Many VF folk bought wedding gifts, as well as oodles of jewelry to wear to the events. We even sold a monkey handled pitcher–I wonder if that will find its way to a certain Monkey Bar…
A restful snow day to all if that is what is happening in your part of the world!
