Small Things

 In no particular order, here are six small things that inspired, uplifted or motivated me this week.

1. Find your word 2021.  I've been asking the Holy Spirit to speak a word over my life for the upcoming year for serveral years now. If you are interested in choosing a word for 2021, Susannah Conway has a free email course to guide you.  Sign up here.

2. I've added this book to my list to read in 2021, The Way of the Happy Woman: Living The Best Year Of Your Life by Sara Avant Stover. Have you chosen any books to read in the new year?

3. I've had this album almost on repeat this week, playing in the background. I discovered it last year and I just love listening to it in the days leading up to Christmas.

4. I came across this recipe this week, which sounds interesting, Pine Needle Shortbread Cookies. I've never made anything that included pine needles, but I gathered quite a few last week and I might give it a try. You can also make tea, which is a good source of Vitamin C.

5. Becky O. Cole of Nature and Nourish is one of my favorite discoveries in recent months.  I came across this post on her blog earlier this week, and I love the idea of choosing a theme for each month to focus on in your journaling. I hope she'll write additional posts for the upcoming seasons.

6. When I was compiling A Winter Idyll and pulling together favorite recipes and resources, I came across this point, Cranberry Self Care, which includes a recipe for cranberry orange muffins which I am considering making for our winter solstice breakfast, there's also diy instructions for a a cranberry sugar scrub and a recipe for cranberry maple bourbon smash, which sounds wonderful!
