March Reflections 2021

Rooftop Geraniums-San Miguel de Allende, by Patricia Clayton

March has been a frustrating month for me because I am sooo ready to have warmer temperatures and gardening weather arrive. Impatient is the word. But please forgive my complaining about the weather. It’s just winter and quarantine fatigue combined.

My March reading was interesting, informative, and enjoyable. It was a complete hodgepodge of genres…I’m all over the place right now. Two of the books finished were on Korea — both South and North. I read a cozy mystery, a gardening book, an award-winning children’s book, and a romance. I’m continuing to read The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, by Siddhartha Mukherjee, a little bit at a time. I am also in the middle of reading Hamnet, by Maggie O’Farrell, which is incredibly good! It was highly recommended by my sister-in-law, and it’s living up to the recommendation!

So, yes, another enjoyable reading month while I wait for the gardening weather to arrive more consistently.

    the combination of winter and quarantine was not a good one, luckily spring has sprung in the Uk and restrictions are being lifted gradually – time to skip and jump!!

    I can certainly understand your desire for warmer temps. Come here! It has been between 85-90 all week but the bugs have already gotten to me. I hope this isn’t a sign that this summer will be one of those unbearable California summers that are 120 degrees.

      Ti, we actually hit the high 60s this week and it was perfect. I’m afraid I’ll start complaining again when we get close to 90! Oh dear…I appear to be weather finicky!

    We were in Salem on Thursday and it hit 72! I wish it were that warm on the coast. It’s only 43 and it’s almost noon. Sigh. Glad to hear you enjoyed Hamnet. We are reading it in my book group later this year!

    Take care, Robin!

      Les, 72 degrees is perfect! I hope the coast will warm up soon. Our nights here are still in the 30s mostly. I’m just waiting for that low to move up into the 40s. Then I’ll know that Spring is getting serious.

    That is a beautiful painting! What a great variety of books you’ve read. I’m very curious about Hamnet and would love to read it. Hope the weather warms up so you can enjoy gardening!

      Iliana, I fell in love with that painting, too! I’m halfway through Hamnet now and completely caught in the story. The writing is wonderful.
