On a less sad note, it was spring ahead day today, which meant an hour less of sleep but also meant that sunset wasn't until 6:51! It will be nice to have some more light in the evenings.
It has been a good week, full of lots of sleeping. I was exhausted all week, and as a result I slept 9+ hours every night. I think maybe I was on the verge of getting sick, but sleeping kept it away. It also prepared me well for spring ahead :)
The Josh Ritter concert last Sunday was great. He played a mix of new and old music, and it was a very different concert than when I saw him 4+ years ago - much quieter, and more intimate. He is a really fun performer, because he is almost constantly smiling and high energy. It was a long way to drive for just the weekend, but worth it!
This is one of the cutest and happiest things I've seen in awhile. I love Lennon and Maisy on Nashville, and they have the best YouTube videos. Here's their newest one, a cover of That's What's Up by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes.
Here are a couple of pictures from my weekend. I made this delicious lentil-vegetable stew for the second time. The recipe seems to have disappeared from where I found it online, but basically it's lentils, sweet potatoes, onion, spinach, and a delicious mix of spices - curry powder, cinnamon, garlic, and ginger. If you want the recipe let me know and I can send it to you. Highly recommended! I also spent some time this weekend searching for a bathing suit for our upcoming spring break crew trip to DeLand, Florida. Unfortunately, March is a very poor time to shop for swimming apparel in Vermont. Apparently it is still too wintery for most people to be considering swimming. I did end up ordering one online from Boden, so I'm hoping it fits/I like it. We shall see! So the picture is of these pretty hideous spandex I found at JC Penney...covered in french fries, pizza, onion rings, hot dogs, etc. I was almost tempted to buy them but they're just a little too weird. For your viewing pleasure.
And a thought to leave you with, from the song Pumpin Blood that I posted last time: "You're a catalyst to your happiness you know." A good mantra to live by - you're only going to be happy if you decide to be. Have a good week!
