March has arrived. With a vengeance.
Here in New England, it came in with a wild wind storm driven nor’easter. I have to admit, it was pretty mesmerizing, And reminded me of something my grandmother used to say about this month….”In like a lion, out like a lamb”. Now that the roar of the wind is over, we are expecting the white noise later in the week. Not sure yet how much. I know so many of you have spring fever already, but I am relishing these last few official weeks of winter. Call me crazy 🙂
Did you catch the Oscars last night??? They did a nice tribute to the military with a montage of many of the war movies Hollywood created in the last nine decades. I found it hilarious and fitting they brought back Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway to present Best Picture after last year’s mix-up. And I was sooooo happy Frances McDormand won. I loved how her unity speech rallied the women in the audience, too!!! I am really enjoying this movement of women supporting women. It’s time we take it back from the mean girls and the others who strive to divide, break or silence us.
And it was so great to see some old school Hollywood at the show, especially since it was the 90th Academy Awards. How beautiful did Eva Marie Saint look?
And how handsome was Christopher Plummer?
How about Rita Moreno wearing the same dress last night…..
…..that she wore to the Oscars in 1962?
I always love watching the red carpet for all the fashion, too. What about you? Here are some of my favorites:
Mary J. Blige:
Best Supporting Actor winner Sam Rockwell:
Jennifer Garner (my favorite of the night!!!):
Matthew McConaughey (sa-wooooon!!!):
Taraji P. Henson:
Woody Harrelson & his wife:
I really wanted Laurie Metcalf to win for Best Supporting Actress for her role in “Lady Bird” (great movie, btw). I have been a big fan of hers since she played Jackie Harris on “Roseanne“. And that reminds me-are you as psyched as I am for the re-boot of that series starting later this month? I was such a fan so I cannot wait. If it is half as good as the “Will & Grace” revival, I am IN!!!
For this week’s song, I chose Mary J. Blige’s Oscar nominated “Mighty River” from “Mudbound“. Her voice is beautiful and incredibly powerful, just like the lyrics she co-wrote:
“Life is a teacher, time is a healer,
And I’m a believer like a river wild.
Ego’s a killer, greed is a monster
But love is stronger, stronger than them all.”
So how are you enjoying March so far???

Until next time, happy digging!!!
