I saw this quote on pinterest the other day and had to share it. I can’t remember which very smart person once told me that if your always the hero in your own story, you aren’t reading it right, but this quote made me think of that. We all have a little distortion in our lenses.
On & Off the Needles: Absolutely nothing new. I just haven’t much felt like picking it up. I did ultimately decide against the stitch-a-long. It’s an adorable sampler but it isn’t a need and I have so many other projects I really should be focusing on so…
Watching: Chef (a movie on Netflix). There’s definitely language but it’s a cute movie. Game of Thrones – my interest started waning at this point in the books and the last two episodes have seemed rather slow for me. I’m not sure how I’m going to feel moving forward. Scandal. OH MY WORD. Nashville – just tie it up and be done already.
Reading: This is Where We Live by Janelle Brown (I didn’t dislike this book, but I didn’t like it either), Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Larson (I laughed audibly in a couple of places but I think there is some repeats from her blog.)
I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am to be done with Sunday’s celebratory lunch. It’s ridiculous but I always get a bit nervy when I’m having people over – even when those people are family and friends I’ve known forever.
In other news, soccer is starting. And it snowed today. I love April in the Midwest. We’ve had 80° temps and below freezing temps and I just cross my fingers and hope I’m sending our kids in the right clothing for the day. There have been plenty of days playing basketball in the driveway and riding bikes and puttering in the yard. We’ve also had a few days snuggled up under blankets watching movies or playing board games. Kids are magic when they are 7 and 5 and life has been simply good – like fresh baked bread warm from the oven and salted butter.
Now I’m going to go warm up my tea and read a bit before it’s time to pick up the kids. What are you looking forward to this week?
Edited to add: I just found this Rebel Wilson quotes as motivational posters. The one with body lotion/weighing herself. SO TRUE!!
