Tomorrow is International Women's Day. With roots dating back to 1909, IWD became a national holiday in Soviet Russia in 1917, after women gained suffrage. The United Nations recognized the day in 1977. Today's IWD theme is “Choose to Challenge.”
Nearly every March since we moved to Southern Oregon over 11 years ago, my husband and I have attended two events that celebrate two of my favorite foods: chocolate and cheese. Add in the fact that vendors at these festivals also offer just about everything under the sun that could be served with these two life-affirming edibles (think wine and beer, among others), and what's not to like? Well, the fact that thousands of other people apparently think like I do and the venues can get uncomfortably crowded is a tad inconvenient, but . . . CHOCOLATE and CHEESE!!!
As the snow starts to melt and the sun peeks through more days than not, I can’t help but look forward to spring and planning for warm weather. Spring cleaning aside, I am looking forward to getting back outside to participate in socially distanced activities and gatherings, weekend and road trips, and making the most of the outdoors while staying safe and healthy.
With March being Women's History Month, there is no better time to visit the Breaking Barriers: Women in the Military exhibit at Dunn Museum. On exhibit through June 13, Breaking Barriers: Women in the Military shares interesting Lake County stories and highlights women’s roles as nurses, auxiliary personnel, enlistees and officers in the U.S. military.
With all the snow Pennsylvania received over the past couple of weeks, I think it’s safe to say I am over winter and ready for the warmer months ahead. I have daydreamed about spring and all the activities that come along with it.

Even as much of the country dealt with waves of subfreezing temperatures and heavy snow and ice storms over the past few weeks, I've been keeping an eye out for early signs of spring. Friends and relatives in northwest Oregon endured snow, layers of ice and subsequent power outages, but here in the southwest corner of the state (at the lower elevations) we stayed above freezing and avoided all the downed lines and broken limbs.
I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
