An Anne Kind of Day

It has been a long week (last week). My daughter is sick, I'm not feeling so hot, and I woke up to a beautiful, rainy day. I love rainy days. There is something so 'homey' and cozy about them. It also makes me feel that spring is coming up close...

But, with this sickness, the rain, the restlessness in my own brain does not feel like stringing together words for a blog. Perhaps cabin fever has run it's course and now settles among my bones with a life-sucking force, refusing to let me have an ounce of energy?

I don't know.

But, what I do that today is an "Anne with an 'E'" kinda of day. is an Anne day.



  1. "Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?"
    - Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

  2. Isn't Anne the best? When you're having one of those days, it's wonderful to know that Anne is always there to be your Bosom Friend. It's also nice to know that tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it (yet).

  3. Brooke, you are so right. I often find myself getting Anne out of the wardrobe ('cause that's where I stow the DVDs) and watching them all on rainy days. Sadly, my daughter is not old enough to enjoy them yet. But she will.

    Roger, did you know that Lucy Laud Montgomery married a minister who was prone to bouts of serious depression? She spent the last of his years taking care of him, suffering her own depression, and writing. It made me sad to know that about her...

  4. I wanted to post a comment on this post a week ago. Finally got around to finding free time for blogging. I love Anne of Green Gables! This video made me relive all those great memories. :)
