Forward Focus. I purchased theatre tickets and concert tickets. I pre-ordered a book. I ordered paint samples. I placed some library holds. My mother emailed me with the date of our first family reunion in years and I smiled as I flipped my datebook to June. It’s nice to have things to look forward to.

To Don’t. At the same time, I’m trying not to get too far ahead of myself.

“Now say to yourself five times, and believe it … This is March. The main thing to do in March is to don’t. I don’t dare do much in my garden … because I know this old fellow March, he fools me everytime.”

– Alfred Carl Hottes, garden editor 1933

Pajama day. Today I had nowhere to go and so I stayed in my cozy velour pajama bottoms, throwing a thick cream-colored cowl neck sweater on, as well as a pair of wool socks. I was warm and comfortable all day. A weekend fashion preview?
