  1. Oh, I like this! I bet I would find myself MUCH more interesting if I could think of 26 things that happened last month! :)

    1. Audrey - I wasn't even going to post a wrap-up for February because I didn't DO anything. You'd be surprised how much comes to mind in just a few minutes.

  2. Ah, yes, March Madness--who can resist the Tournament of Books??? ;-) I'm on book #9 and hope to start #10 this weekend.

  3. Good recap of the month. 29 days of extraordinary events... Linsanity, Passing of Whitney Houston, and on the last day, of Davy Jones! You're right, we'll all coping with Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've finished re-watching the whole Season 1 twice! Waiting in line for Season 2 Blu-ray at library. -- Arti

    1. Amy - I think Pinterest would be a huge time suck for me... kind of afraid to even give it a try. Hurray for Downton abbey!

  6. I love your wrap-up! Whether you are running or walking fast, I am jealous as I am on a forced hiatus from exercising. I've got the sinus thing going on too.

  7. Haha, great post :) I was also wondering whether this might be the last snow ever, especially since we had so much of it during a single week. Hopefully not :)

    Pinterest is great, but you're right, it's really time consuming...

    The Artist could easily become my favorite movie ever, and large part of it is because of Uggie. I'm in love with that dog <3

    Hope March will be a good month for you :)

    1. Ivana - The dog was my favorite, too! I hear he won a 'Golden Collar' award for his performance.

  9. Nice. Downton Abbey and Venice.

    I only use Pininterest for recipes I want to try. They look so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Raidergirl3 - Yup, Downton and Venice made February great. I want to use Pinterest for recipes, but am afraid I won't be able to stop there... can see hours disappearing before I'm even aware of it!

  11. JoAnn - my husband and I were talking about March Madness this morning. The first game is March 13th. My alma mater is Kansas University so I always follow them. The whole tournament is always fun to watch.

    1. Margot - Not too much loner to wait for official March Madness then - good luck to both Kansas and Syracuse. The Big East Tournament will keep us busy for a long weekend, too.

  12. Oh but think about all the cooking ideas you could get from Pinterest!! ;) I'm to the point where I take it or leave it--usually only pinning directly from a website or browsing on my phone. never browsing on the actual website (way too overwhelming).

    And how was The Artist??

    1. Trish - I know, I know.... but it all seems so overwhelming.

  13. This was fun to read. I like March Madness because my husband is hooked to the tube and I have lots more time to read:) Happy March JoAnn.

    1. Diane - LOL! I'll take extra reading time any way I can get it, too.

  14. Well we kind of got winter here now and it's supposed to snow tonight but it's close enough to spring now that it doesn't bother me as much.

    I like how you do this- it's cute. Hope you're feeling better from that sinus infection. Those are awful!

    1. Darlene - We had quite a bit of snow on Thursday, but it's gone again. Now there are cracks in the ice on the lake... spring can't be too far away.

  15. oh, I love your alphabet posts. :)
    Pinterest... I think it has more value than tumblr but that could be just me.
    Happy March!

    1. Care - Thanks! I rarely check in at tumblr any more, but Pinterest intrigues me.

  16. I was excited for the tournament until Ohio State started stinking it up the last few weeks!

  17. I hear you on Pinterest.

    And as for Ian McEwan, I just finished Saturday. Meh.

  18. Such a clever fun post! I decided to give Pinterest a try and registered for an invitation 4 or 5 days ago and still haven't heard. I imagine there's quite a waiting list. I read that in the beginning of this year the membership almost doubled in a month!

    I hope you're feeling better!

    I just adore Downton Abbey and wish the series was longer!

    Have a great Sunday (I'm a bit behind on posts!)

    1. Amy - I'll be curious to see what you think of Pinterest. Hope you had a great weekend!

  19. I like Pinterest, but haven't looked at in over a week (or two!), so I can definitely leave it.

    1. Les - I'm going to try and avoid Pinterest for a little bit longer.
