(Late night Edition)
Yesterday, I took a whole bunch of cold medicine (I’ve had this nasty summer cold), packed a bag, and went on an overnight adventure with some friends to see Beyonce. It was an exciting night. The tickets were in a great location but 10 minutes before she was supposed to take the stage they started evacuating the stadium because of a lightning. Thankfully, the weather decided to cooperate and the concert only had a late start. The show was amazing. It was definitely a good way to kick off being 38 (even if I was a bit of a lump and headed straight back to the hotel room for cough syrup and sleep).
It’s been awhile since I’ve written one of these so I have a lot to catch up on.
Reading: The last few weeks I’ve been devouring books. I really should just do a separate post because I think I’ve read about 4 or 5 different things worth recommending but I recently just finished Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I picked it up because of Jules’ recommendation and while I wouldn’t necessarily rate it as highly (I felt it was a little too predictable), I thought it was some pretty great reading.
Knitting: Socks. Always. And I’m also picking up some minis because I’m going to make a sock yarn blanket with my left over yarn but I need some solids and tonals to break up my plethora of self striping.
Watching: The Office (American version) because I never did and everyone in my family loves it and peer pressure. Bloodline’s second season comes out on Friday and I know I’ll be busy with Memorial Day plans, but I’m planning on watching it starting Monday night. And this season of Game of Thrones. Last season was awful. This season is definitely an improvement, but still not as good as some of the earlier ones.
Thinking: I just can’t believe the presidential election this cycle. I’m completely dumbfounded. And I can’t decide if I’m angrier with the Democrats or the Republicans for making me vote for Hillary Clinton. (Though I keep hoping for some amazing new development because it can’t be any more shocking than Trump being a party’s presumptive nominee.)
What’s going on in your corner of the world? Doing, watching, reading anything cool?
