DSC_0259Knitting: I finished my May socks. Colorway: Desert Vista Dyeworks Cranberry Sauce

I haven’t decided yet what color I’m going to use for June. I’m thinking either the Monopoly Money or Strawberry Shortcake colorway. But I have a couple of hush, hush projects to finish before I start them, so it’s going to be a rush in June.

(Re)Reading – Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.  I needed something fun and light for the cabin weekend so I grabbed this.

Watching: Bloodline. I’m only a couple of episodes in so I can’t decide if it’s as good as last season.

We have the season’s last baseball game tonight and two final soccer games this weekend. The kids’ last day of school is Thursday and after two crazy months of activities and end of the year madness, I’m ready for a few lazy days at the pool.

What are you looking forward to this week.

  • I need to start Bloodline so we can compare notes! I live-hated seasin 1. They were always so sweaty, especially creepy Danny.

    • Please do! I really want to hear your thoughts. After watching a little more, I’m a little ambivalent about this season.

  • Your sock-knitting pace is amazing, Kate 🙂 ! My 6th of the year is off the needles, and I’m already about 3 inches in on my 7th, so maybe I can get a whole pair done in June …

    Just started watching the 6th season of Drop Dead Diva on Netflix. I confess that some of the characters are (now more than ever) grating on my nerves … but we’ll watch the whole season regardless.

    I finished the Home book … It was (for the most part) a very good read. I really enjoyed learning about the evolution of “home” and comfort; a lot of the ideas he discussed resonated strongly with me and reflected thoughts I have had (independently) about what home is. There were parts where he lost me a bit though – I don’t have a background in interior design and am rather clueless as to the names and appearance of the various styles. I felt that when he discussed things of this nature he did so in a slightly inaccessible manner, as though he was perhaps assuming his readers would have prior knowledge and immediately be able to envision what he was talking about. But that’s my only criticism of the book.

    One chapter into Rebecca … 🙂

    My youngest just started his soccer season a few weeks ago (it runs until the third week in August), and we still have school all of June (last day is the 29th). I’m looking forward to a productive week at home — I’ve got a lot of baking to do, and I’m still sewing and want to finish at least two more tops this week. (And my goodness, get a post up about it!) Our daughter will be coming home next Thursday, in time to see her brother’s convocation on Friday; I’m looking forward to having her home, even though it will be a very, very short visit . (And it’s a great incentive for me to wash the floor 😉 . It desperately needs it, because I’ve been too busy sewing to clean!)

    • I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Drop Dead Diva but I’m going to have to look it up. It sounds like such FUN.

      And yes, I do hope you get a chance to get your sewing post up. I’m very excited to see what you’ve been doing. I think part of the reason my knitting pace is so high is because it’s something I do pretty exclusively. Especially in the evenings after the kids are in bed. If I was doing more baking and sewing and cleaning…I know I’d be doing a lot less of it. And now that it’s summer, I’m quite sure I’ll slow down a bit.

      I can’t believe how late your kids go!! V & A were in school until mid-June last year and I felt like summer was way too short!!! 🙂
