Four days. It’s been four days since the snow fell and we’ve been to a grocery store…or anywhere, really. It was only five or so inches of snow…but the resulting ice from subfreezing temperatures has rendered the city immobile. Last night, we were able to gingerly walk to a pub a block from our loft and our meal – overly dense Falafel and cheap red wine sitting at the bar – felt positively luxurious. Our cars haven’t moved. Our parking lot, which doesn’t get much in the way of sunshine, resembles a skating rink still. Groceries stores – even if they were open – haven’t received any deliveries. So, we’ve stayed inside. Watched movies. Played Yahtzee. I’ve been doing a lot of surfing online, as well. Obsessively refreshing my RSS reader. Heck, I even made my own Etsy treasury – there’s good stuff in there.
In an effort to mix things up a bit – and break up the monotony of my online circle of friends and links – I put the call out on Twitter for some inspiration. Some beauty. Some deliciousness. Boy did I ever get a response – I was introduced to new blogs, new photographers, new recipes and new friends on Twitter. It certainly lifted my spirits…and I thank you. Since some of you on the East Coast are experiencing what we here in Atlanta are (hopefully) coming out of, I thought I’d share some of the wonderfulness I found this week. Besides, a little inspiration and loveliness never hurt anyone, right? I’ll be posting food again on Saturday with this week’s Saturday Soup. In the meantime, here’s whats been helping the thaw:
Thanks again to Maigh for letting me use her image in this post. I saw it yesterday and fell in love with it. I hope you do, too. Check out more of her photos here on her Flickr stream.
