I’m here! I’m here! I’m actually posting. January has been an absolute whirlwind. Besides the political craziness (which is all I’m going to say about that today), we’ve had our own little go around with crazy and I’m not going to say anything about that either. I’m simply going to say that today I realized I hadn’t posted a Tuesday Things for all of January, and decided that I needed to get on this blog and share some random, daily life tidbits. So here I am.
Last weekend, Jesse and I went away to celebrate having met 17 years ago (any excuse for a date). We ate so many oysters. And I ate a giant lobster that I didn’t share at all and drank a glass of champagne that came in it’s own adorable little bottle so it wouldn’t lose it’s bubbles. (That mini champagne bottle…made my whole month. I’m ridiculous) Other things in our little world:
Knitting: Worsted weight yarn knits up so much faster than sock yarn. I mean…so.much.faster. I’ve almost finished Violet’s Bulle sweater. I have to get the sleeves finished, block it, and add some buttons but I’m almost done. I thought it’d take me at least a couple months. I love the color which I can’t remember (and, of course, I didn’t bother saving a ball band) but I can tell you it’s a tealish Cascade 220 Heather. I’ve also been knitting a color bias block wrap. I knit one up for my sister a few years back for Christmas and loved it, so I thought I’d knit another one up. Next up is a sweater for Abram (I have the yarn and pattern picked already) and a 3 color cashmere cowl (I’ve had the yarn sitting around for months, I need to get it finished!!)
Reading: Just finished Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty which was on loan from a friend. It was a pretty standard, predictable, quick read but was quick and light which I needed. I finished Hamilton which I enjoyed immensely. I used to read so much more nonfiction before children. Maybe this was just the umph I needed to get me reading that again. I’m also going to participating in Rita’s Year of Reading Dangerously.
Watching: Not a whole lot. I have quite a few things on my Netflix and Hulu list, but haven’t been really checking anything off. I did watch the Netflix documentary 13 and have been watching an episode of The West Wing here and there. Oh and the BBC’s Sherlock!!! I watched the first three seasons on Netflix and LOVED IT. Dark but also very funny. I finally see what people are saying about Benedict Cumberbatch. I did not understand the appeal until seeing him as Sherlock but now? Total crush. (Okay, so I HAVE watched a lot, but it’s been a month!!)
Cooking: All kinds of comfort foods. Casseroles, chili, chicken and noodles, and so many scrambled eggs. With running from thing to thing and needing a quick dinner, it’s the one thing everyone in the family will eat without any complaint ever.
What are you cooking, watching, reading, making?
