Earlier this week we were badly in need of a field trip. It had snowed a little bit again. And we just really needed to change things up for the day. So we bundled up for a hike at Raven Run. It was only 27 degrees, but the sun was out and the hike was just what we needed. We didn’t see another living soul on the path. But we did see a few plants with buds about to burst into bloom. We smelled the earthy scent of mud, which was thawed despite the cold temperature. And we spent a little while at the overlook, pondering the pale green color of the Kentucky River.
Last night we stayed up to watch the UK game against Louisville. What a game! Definitely worth staying up for, especially if you’re a UK fan. I may need to make Blue Velvet Cupcakes again!
Recently, I watched From Time to Time on Netflix. If you like movies and shows about old, English castles then you will like this one. There are two story lines, one that takes place during WWII and another that tells the history of the old house. The story reminded me of the book, The Sherwood Ring, one of our favorite homeschool reads. From Time to Time is streaming for free on Netflix.
Disney FastPass+ News
Starting March 31, off-site guests will be able to make FastPass+ reservations up to 30 days in advance of their vacations. I was able to link all of our tickets to the My Disney Experience website a few weeks ago. So I’m all set to make our FP+ selections when we’re 30 days out. Now I just have to get a plan touring the parks together!
I managed to snag The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for just 99 cents a few months ago. I’d read it once and loved it. The other day, I started reading it for the second time. It’s just as good this time through as the first. Do you ever read books more than once? I’d love to know which books you find worth a second read.
I hope you have a great weekend, full of rest and renewal.
