Happy Monday: Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well today. We are in the aftermath of our first winter storm and it’s not the volume of snow that is threatening but the temperature drop (currently 4 degrees Fahrenheit. So everything is frozen and we have high wind gusts which I am hopeful that our power will remain on. Something about winter storms are stressful at times but something else is so cozy and comforting. To be tucked in your home with all the things and people you love makes me happy.  So I am hoping to get some reading and a little crafting in before the day is complete.

Enough about the weather. Happy MLK day!  I hope you all are finding ways to honor his message and maybe sneak in time to reflect on his life. I am embarrassed to say that I have yet to read an adult book on him. I keep waiting for the “right” book. But I really would like to read one this year. A couple that I have in mind as contenders are:

Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? (King Legacy) by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (Author), Vincent Harding

The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr. by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Hopefully this will me the year.

I hope you all are well and I will check in this week with some crafty posts.

Have a great day!


Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day!

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We have a long weekend here with the celebration of Martin Luther King day here. So it has been nice having more time to play, relax and regroup.  I spent some time reading and yesterday, a grocery run to three different grocery stores (yes, I have issues) to get the week’s food. I used to plan whole weeks ahead for our meals and then shop one day with no stress for the rest of the week. But somewhere during the holidays, it fell apart.  So I am feeling positive about this week. More time for family.

Today I am planning on sprinkling in some fun education and activities to celebrate Martin Luther King’s birthday. First thing I will do is remind them is that his actual birthday is January 15th. Then we might read a book on The March on Washington that I think I saw Apollo take out from the library on Friday. A little craft would be great and I have recorded a show from PBS on The March on Washington so we could watch that. Then we can talk about it and also the similarities and differences between the book presentation and the television. I want to know what they know from school and then take them further.

So let’s see how far I can get through the activities I plan for them today.

Hope you all have a blessed day and have time to reflect on a very special man named Martin Luther King Jr. today.
