I can’t believe we’re halfway through March already. Our 52.5″ of February snow is melting and rumor has it that next week will even be in the FIFTIES. It’s still March and I never count out an April (or even May!) snowstorm, but I’m loving this warm up and keeping my fingers crossed that spring sticks around.
Reading: Finished Any Man. Great concept, really unimpressed with the execution. Another book I’d love as a book club book. I’m about half way through A Secret Sisterhood. It’s not a quick read for me. I keep picking it up and putting it down.
Knitting: I’m still working on Jesse’s socks, but Violet found some yarn during one of our adventures that she said the colors reminded her of the universe and asked if I’d make her a cowl. A super quick no real pattern knit – I just cast on 101 stitches and knit a seed stitch in the round until I thought it looked wide enough. After I finished, there was enough yarn left over that I’m knitting up a hat using a pattern I had on file but without the stripes. I bought the yarn at a local yarn store, but it can also be found on Etsy.
Listening: I *finally* finished the Dirty John podcast. Getting over the upspeak in the first few episodes was really hard for me, but the story was compelling/frustrating. Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History was recently recommended so I think I’m going to have to give that a try.
Watching: I’ve been periodically watching Cheers on Netflix. The fourth and final season of Catastrophe has been released on Amazon and I definitely want to watch it but it’s a dark/tragic/funny show and I’m waiting until I’m 100% out of winter blues territory. (If you haven’t watched it, I *highly* recommend it. It’s made me laugh so hard I cry, but it’s also just straight up made me cry.)
Making: Abram and Violet traced their heads/arms and colored them in this week to send “hugs” to a sick family member. I bought the ingredients to make this salad and that is on the agenda tomorrow as well as this crockpot meal but with chicken thighs (because that’s what I have). I need to sit down and do some work on my embroidery (it’s been languishing for months) so hopefully I pick that up this week.
What are you -ing this week?
