I am starting a new kind of series here. Every month I plan to share a “What I’m Into” post.
It can be books, TV series, food, or whatever I’m “into” that particular month.
I enjoy these on other people’s blogs, so hey, why not give it a try here? I may also include things that my family overall is into as well.
For March of 2015, this is what I’m into:
Grantchester. This is a new British series recently put on PBS. It always includes a mystery solved by a detective with an unlikely partner–a country vicar. Good script, good story line, and good characters. James Norton (pictured above) is the lead character and quite the handsome fellow. Need I say more? Nope, didn’t think so;)
Cornelia Funke books. I read Inkheart a couple years ago, but now I am reading Inkspell. Yes, they are chapter books for probably later elementary to middle schoolers, but I enjoy them.
Soups and stews. I could eat soup pretty much every day no matter what the season, but have been making lots of them these last months. My go-to dinner option is to make a soup or stew with either bread, biscuits, or some of my skillet cornbread.
As a family, we are currently obsessed with the series “How the States Got Their Shapes.” We discovered it on Netflix last month and love it! This is a great show for learning all kinds of US history and geography, but it is also just plain interesting.
Yarn. This winter I have done a lot of knitting and crochet projects. Currently I am finishing up a crochet tank top that I *think* (fingers crossed) will be cute for summer. I’ll have to let you know how it turns out.
Breathe by Priscilla Shirer. I have just begun leading this new Bible study series with my ladies from church. It addresses the issue of creating margin in one’s life, the Sabbath, and not being a slave to busyness. A blog post just addressing this may be impending, but I’ll see what all I learn from the study first. I believe this is quite a timely issue for today’s culture, don’t you think?
Lastly, our family has been poring over the latest Burpee catalog for the last couple of months. It is extremely dog-eared from being looked at and pages marked with possible things to plant this year.
We are SO ready for spring!!!
