Like the sky opens after a rainy day we
must open to ourselves.... Learn to love
yourself for who you are and open so the
world can see you shine. 

~James Poland

This was a weekend of waking
early on a cold Saturday morning,
driving for hours to have lunch with
my daughter, son -in- love, and
Emerson, my favorite five year old.
Seeing her little smiling face, listening
to her read me a book, holding her .
tight before I left made my whole day.
I stopped at Whole Foods before going
home to restock my favorite cereal
{I buy in bulk} and finding the price has
gone up...a lot. Now I am on a mission
to come up with my own recipe.

Sunday has been a day of knitting and
reading. Taking a long walk and having
to take my jacket off because it was so
warm. Tomorrow it is suppose to be in
the 80's! This has been the strangest

Thank you for all the well wishes on
Thursday's post.  I am now well
rested and that sense of peace that
I usually carry with me has returned
making me feel more like myself. I
am looking forward to a beautiful week
and I hope the same for you. Can
you believe it's already February?!

Joining with Amanda.


  1. Love your pretty blue and grey contrasting skies and your fleurs...very clever Tracey. Your son - in- love what a very nice way to describe him. Seems like you had a wonderful weekend- good to fill up on love.
    Ps. trying that cereal- y.u.m.

  2. How lovely that you got to visit with your fav five year old. Happy to hear peace has returned Tracey. Enjoy your week.

  3. what is it with this winter???? 60 yesterday----tonight we have about 5" of snow!!! (yes, we got our snow!!!!!!!!!!!)

  4. Glad you're better and well-rested and had a beautiful time with your loved ones. Hearing children read is priceless.

  5. I know you will find the recipe! Glad that you feel more like yourself, I'm sure having water helps. Love the contrasting photos, the weather has been nutty here!

  6. Good that you were able to catch up. I hope you share the recipe once made. We've had a weirdly warm then cold winter with thunderstorms and showers too. But eighty degrees, that's like summer over here. I actually managed to do some reading and knitting too. It was so good. Glad you are getting back to normal. Take care.

  7. I still can't believe that it's February. Of course it was a wonderful weekend if you got some snuggles from Emerson :-)
    It's amazing how the price of things is going up. Hope you find a recipe real quick!

  8. What a fun way to start a new month (with your granddaughter!) Wishing you a happy week and success on the recipe. We try to make our own scratch versions of the grocery items we use most -- so much cheaper and healthier that way. Blessings, ~Lisa :)

  9. sounds like a very good weekend. and YES what is up with this crazy winter weather? here in AZ we had temps in the high 70's low 80's for a good part of Jan. NOW it is in the low 60's. LOL

  10. I'm so glad you are feeling more yourself, Tracey! Love and light to you for a great week!
