For Your Weekend

Happy February! Has the year flown by so far for you, too? After a gloomy January, spring has officially sprung here. We’ve been treated to warm, sunny afternoons and the first flowers of spring have bloomed. It’s such an exciting time of year, although, sadly, the nice weather means that we’re looking at another drought year.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been happily focusing on work stuff. I’m teaching a new program that I love, and blog-wise, doing important backend work and developing my new site about language (Ling & Lang, coming soon!).

This weekend we have plans with friends, and next weekend we’ll be exploring Sonoma County for three days. We’ll be staying on a farm in the beautiful countryside between Petaluma and the coast — I’ll be sharing stories and photos on Instagram. I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to lately and what you have planned for February.

Now for those links…
