January has offered amazingly stunning sunshine this past week. And such warmth during the cold winter months quickly excited me for the spring about to come. I know, I know, that’s still two months away, but oh, how close it is. However, January is still here and I still have planning to complete, so for that I am quite thankful. As for this upcoming weekend, it will involve a respite and a brief getaway, time to read, cook and forget to look at the clock. After all, isn’t that what weekends are for?

This week, reader’s made Why Not . . . Invest in Good Shoes? their top post with insightful comments and questions, so do be sure toe top by and speak your mind.

And, perhaps like me some of you were up early on Thursday (5:35 am on the west coast) to discover who was nominated for the 86th annual Academy Awards. This year, the Best Actress category is bursting with talent that will be very hard to choose from. And while I adore all of the actresses chosen, if you haven’t seen Blue Jasmine, I highly recommend it. Cate Blanchett is absolutely wonderful. And the nominated songs are a list to enjoy as well. I could go on and on, but I’ll let you enjoy the video below to rev up your arts and entertainment predilection (save the date – Sunday March 2nd is when the winners will be announced).

With some time during the past week, I came across two items – an article and one video – I wanted to share as I thought you might enjoy. As January is a month that many tend to focus on good health and helping our bodies and mind perform at their best, I was drawn to the information that was shared:

~Goodnight. Sleep Clean. . . . the power of a good night’s sleep can have life long effects in more ways than you might realize.

“Why Sugar Makes Us Feel So Good” . . . knowledge is power, and yes added sugar (as suggested in this post) should be kept in check. Find out why is the video below.

Over the weekend, the latest Petit Plaisir will be shared, so do be sure to stop by. Have a lovely weekend! Bonjour.
