Tuesday Things

Hi all!! I’m headed to the big Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN today to try and get some answers on a weird angioedema issue that I’ve had for years but has recently become pretty bothersome. Prayers, good juju, happy thoughts are all appreciated!

Knitting: I’m still working on my pretty yellow gift socks. School days, sports practices and games, and a decent bedtime have all conspired to keep me about 45 rows away from the finish. Hopefully this week as I already have yarn waiting on the swift for the next pair.

Reading: I’ve been reading Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird over this last week. I picked it up *ages* ago for a writing class that I never finished and I’m finding so much life inspiration in it. And a few chuckles. I’m definitely going to have to find more of her writing because I’m enjoying it immensely. Also read: Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center and The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger. I wasn’t overly impressed with either of them enough to recommend them.

Watching: I watched Chapelle’s Sticks and Stones special. I had a lot of thoughts and then I found this great review that said everything I would have said but more eloquently but I managed to save the link wrong so…It’s not always funny. It’s often uncomfortable. I definitely think it’s worth watching.

Making: Lists. Plans. Dreams. Goals. And then bed. It just feels so good when I make the bed every morning I don’t know WHY I get out of the habit. (Do you have one of those habits that really doesn’t take any time at all, feels so good when you do it and still always find yourself slipping out of the habit of it?!?)

So that’s me! What are you reading, making, watching lately? Anything good to share?
