Violet and Abram are home for spring break this week. We’ll be going on a few small adventures, but mostly our plan is to enjoy temperatures in the 40’s, and a chance to unwind before the hectic spring schedule swings into gear. I’m quite certain that May is just as busy as December around here – if not busier. Anyway…that’s us. Here’s my -ing’s for the week:
Reading: I just finished reading Educated by Tara Westover. I have arguments for both a two and a four star rating. I thought the writing was well done – I never wanted to stop reading it – but the book itself just wasn’t for me. Next is “You Think It, I’ll Say It”. Waiting
impatiently to see what my book club book is from April.
Watching: I’ve been watching Cheers on Netflix. One or two episodes at night before I go to bed. I was too young to watch it when it first came out, never watched it in syndication, and have found that besides the fashion – it holds up really, really well. At least up until season two – which is how far I’ve managed to get.
Knitting: Finished the hat and pom that match Violet’s scarf in the last week and am still working – slowly – on Jesse’s socks. I don’t know what I’ll cast on when the socks are finished. I’m toying with the idea of working on a blanket after this. I haven’t knit up a blanket it ages but I like the idea.
Listening: This is on repeat because Abram heard it on spotify one day and it’s now his favorite song. We looked up the lyrics yesterday because we could never get the order right…and…depressing. And speaking of depressing (I LOVE it.) And also this which is not depressing because my brother loves funk and usually shares his most recent find and nothing makes washing dishes more enjoyable than a funky beat.
Making: With the kids home, I’m going to be looking for inspiration from either here or here so we can get our craft on. I also recently acquired this cookbook. I have a friend who spends a lot of time in China for work and swears by the recipes so I’m excited to try them.
How about you? Are you making, listening to, watching, or reading anything of note? Hope your week is off to a great start!
