What I’ll be doing during Super Bowl

I’m really not into the Super Bowl, every news, and talk show program this past week has made a reference or dedicated an entire show to this event. The only thing about the Super Bowl that entertains me, are the commercials, and to see which player is more handsome than the other, for me that’s the full extent of the Super Bowl.  So this evening is going to be a night of pampering, book reading, journal writing, watching Downton Abby and catching up on all those shows that have been sitting in my DVR since last year.

Susie Larson Blessings For The Evening #maylanaschronicles Maylana's Chronicles

I was given a gift at Christmas, of this beautiful little book, which I’m reading right now; it’s Susie Larson’s “Blessing’s for the Evening.  This is such an elegant little book, which is quite heavy for its size, with a beautiful padded cover, complete with gorgeous photography and inspirational quotes to help you wind down your evening on a positive note.  The premise is to read a devotional each night, but it’s so beautifully written,  and feels so lovely in your hands, you can’t help but read a few pages at a time.  You can see Susie’s beautiful quotes on Pinterest.

 

Blessings for the evening quote

 

For those of you who are football fans… Enjoy! May your team win! I’ll be sipping a glass of red.

Happy Birthday Zora…

Zora Neale Hurston, #zoranealehurston, Harlem Renaissance #HarlemRenaissance

Today is the birthday of a literary legend, and one of my favourite authors, Zora Neale Hurston.  Born January 7, 1891, Ms. Hurston became one of the leading voices of the Harlem Renaissance, after arriving in New York in 1925, when the Renaissance was at its peak, becoming one of the most widely acclaimed Black authors in America, from the mid twenties to the mid forties. 

I have a small collection of Ms. Hurston’s books in my own library, my favourites being, Their Eyes Were Watching God {one of her most popular books}, Dust Tracks On The Road and Wrapped in Rainbows.

In her honor, Google created a Google Doodle to commemorate what would have been her 123rd birthday.
