February’s Joyful Simplicities

Paraphrased from Simple Abundance by SBB (I’ve bolded those I will absolutely be doing)

Feb 2 – Light candles all over your home for Candlemas Day.

Invite a few friends over the Sunday before Valentine’s Day to make hand-crafted paper confections for those you love at a Cupid’s tea.

Write a long love letter to yourself.  Compliment yourself for everything you are doing right now and encourage yourself as you would a child.  Mail the letter and save it for when you are discouraged.

Start forcing hyacinth bulbs.

Add a bit of lace to a suit or a pantry shelf.

Find a wonderful picture of yourself when you were young, find the perfect frame for it and put it on your dressing table.

Wear perfume every day

Try a red lipstick

Treat yourself to one longstemmed rose for your desk.

Listen to the music of Cole Porter.

Rent Out of Africa .  Read Isak Dinesen and Beryl Markham.

Create a sacred space.

  1. Love all of these ideas…perhaps we should hang on Valentines weekend since there is a scout activity and we may be widows

  2. Superb blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!
