Apparently, March turned into April ten days ago. You’d never know it by how cold it’s been lately. It’s still below zero most days. Sigh.
Anyway, here’s what I was up to in March:
Kitchen is completely painted red! // Carrot cake pancakes were so good! recipe via smitten kitchen // More snow! It never ends. 😦 // First Seasonsbox – post here // My tweet was mentioned in Style at Home magazine! // Could not stop drinking this tea even though I’ve had it for months // Marvelled the retro checkout at the nearby Safeway // Became a bit obsessed with my mom’s issue of Redbook. I actually wanted to pick up my own copy. Great rebrand! // Sprinkles is sleeping and is adorable x // Green ombre-ish NOTD – post here// Discovered my favourite PBS Euro travel show host Rick Steves has a podcast // Shamrock plant! // What can I say? I love the snow? // Bunny! // Loved this memoir by Grace Coddington. Two thumbs up! // More Sprinkles x 2 //

I’m so happy that March is finally here. Although we’re expected some snow today, it still feels like the end of winter is near. This weekend, I’m trying to get my receipts in order to do my taxes (ugh) and I’m going to watch some curling tonight.
Anyway, here’s what I was up to in February:
Started painting my kitchen Gumball Red! // Winterfell scarf complete! post here // Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cookies for brother’s birthday // Dogs sitting in the front seat makes me happy // Double chocolate cheesecake for my dad’s birthday – recipe here // Lovely sunset // Picked up entertainment unit from IKEA. Took 2 hours to put together! // Watched the 1914 film, Cinderella and became a bit obsessed with intertitles – post here. // Painting other side of the kitchen // Spaghetti squash bake kinda based on this recipe // These snow banks are ridiculous // Rereading Bridget Jones’s Diary // Glossybox cupcake cups – post here // Another lovely sunset

I’ve started to paint my kitchen red. I’m loving how it’s looking so far. Such a relief considering how dark the colour is. It’s a bit scary to paint the first stripe. I can’t wait to show you!
Anyway, here’s what I was up to in January:
Coffee on New Year’s Day! // Mittens in progress. Now frogged because I don’t like how they turned out. The yarn is so pretty though. // Enjoying the gorgeous big blue Manitoba sky // Working on Missoni blanket again. It’s been over a year already! // First day back to class // Winter is coming scarf // Wild by Cheryl Strayed. Obsessed with this book. // Isn’t it cute that I thought -34C was cold when -44C was just around the corner? // I love my Travel & Leisure subscription but sometimes they’re rubbing it in. // Sprinkles! // Making scones // Treated parents to Creme Brulee French Toast. Recipe here. // Tea Cozy! Post here // Born to be Brad – Love this book! // Chevron NOTD // Sundogs!

I hope you’ve all had a great week. My highlight was definitely seeing Les Mis in the theatre even though it left me feeling mopey for the rest of the night. No word of a lie, I was one step away from this:
Anyway, I’ve decided to retire Music Mondays mostly because the songs I loved at the moment didn’t always have videos and it just was becoming a bit of a chore. Instead, I’m going to arrange some of my favourites by monthly. I don’t about you but in January I’m always feeling very mellow and melancholy. I think it might have something with the cold. Seriously, it’s been -30C with the wind all week.
Hope you enjoy it!
Week two and I’m still going strong! Here are the photos from this week:
January 8 // Ready to dive right into The Fire & Ice Series!
January 9 // First thing I used my drill for! My earring holder.
January 10 // My bowl of fruit
January 11 // Guacamole & sour cream from book club. Looked a bit dodgy to be honest.
January 12 // Photo of the Red River. Usually, the river is frozen over by Christmas so it’s something to see that the water is still visable. Check out the fog on top of it. There’s just something so beautiful about the blue sky of Manitoba.
January 13 // Reading The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides
January 14 // Spying on this little bird hidden in the hedge.
Loving Project 365 so far! Instagram definitely makes life easier. 🙂
