How’s your spring going? I’m loving the lighter nights and longer days, but I do wish the sun would come back here in the south of England. Whatever your weather, this week there are lots of fun spring ideas for you at The Hearth and Soul Link Party. Welcome!
Spring is the perfect time to inject a little fun in our lives. And while as Gretchen Rubins says, “What’s fun for everyone might not be fun for you”, I hope you will be inspired to think about what is fun for you by some of the features. I also hope you will make a concerted effort, as I am, to fit lots of the things you do find fun into your life!
What’s Happening on The Blog
There’s lots going on behind the scenes at AprilJHarris.com as I start work on a free mini ebook to give away to subscribers. I’ve polled current subscribers for the topic, and I’ll be announcing what they chose in my upcoming newsletter. I’ve never written an ebook before so there’s a learning curve for me, plus I also have to work on the content and photographs. Once I’ve done this, I’m having my lovely web designer give the site a little refresh. If you haven’t already, please do consider signing up to my newsletters. I rarely email more than once or twice a month, and I share things from on the blog and beyond. I’d really appreciate your support!
One of my lovely readers recently contacted me asking for more easy, everyday recipes and I’ve started with my Roast Vegetable Pasta Bake.
Perfect for cooks of all levels, this wholesome vegetarian dish should please the whole family. There are lots of variations – including a vegan option and a gluten free one.
Some time ago, I shared my tips on How to Avoid Jet Lag. Most of the time, following this advice ensures I feel great before, during and after a trip. However our recent visit to the US was a month long, and there were three time changes.
I felt quite rough for a day or so after we got home, but it was a great opportunity to work on a post about what to do if, despite all your best efforts, you do get jet lag. In How to Deal with Jet Lag I’ve got easy tips to help you feel better, faster, and get your body, mind and soul back into the correct time zone!
