Today is Ash Wednesday. I only know this because I keep stumbling across blogs about it. Lent wasn't a part of my faith tradition growing up, but I've learned some interesting things about it in recent years.
So, it's another snow day! And we've pretty much said all there is to say on that subject this winter, so we thought you might like to watch an inspiring video instead!.
Here's what we talked about on the show today! Mr. Rogers - America's Favorite Neighbor: Today marks 11 years since America's favorite neighbor, Mr. Rogers, passed away. Ansen and I both remember watching him on TV as kids. You may think of puppets, cardigans, and singing when you think of this simple man.
Yeah, I know the Olympics are over. But I haven't quite accepted it yet. Last night I got home after doing the Drive-Home show and instinctively grabbed the remote, only to have it dawn on me that the Closing Ceremony had already wrapped up the Sochi Games the night before. I'm an Olympic junkie, I confess.
Did you know watching the Olympics can be dangerous? I mean really, one minute I'm enjoying a perfectly innocent Bobsled race and the next minute? I'm crying. Not like, "my eyes are watering" kind of crying. More like the ugly cry. Wham! Didn't see that coming.
It's another beautiful day in Northwest Arkansas! We're still sticking to our conclusion that spring has come. (At least until it snows again.
What a gorgeous Tuesday! Kara even turned on the AC in her car today for the first time this year. I'm all for just moving on from winter and declaring today to be the first day of spring, even though that technically isn't until March 20th (but shhh, I won't tell anyone if you won't).
I grabbed a handful of chocolate chips and curled up in my favorite chair with a blanket. The Olympics are good company on a Friday night at the end of a long week, when you feel a bit like a zombie.
As a part of our recent website redesign, we've got a brand new home for the Drive-Home show!.
