Last week, Jesse had to travel for work and both kids had places to be every night and the weekend was full of show choir and basketball. It was so busy and so good. I’m not feeling the best, but the sun is shining and I have nowhere I need to be and though my list of things to do is long, it’s been too long since I’ve sat down and written a Tuesday post.
Knitting: I finished a pair of socks. Put another on the needles and got down to the heel when I decided I needed a break. I grabbed the yarn for a lap blanket project, wound it up, and got to work. It’s a very simple garter stitch blanket and it’s been quick work. I have two more colors left to knit through and then I’ll block it out and set it aside for a Christmas present.
Reading: I finished Station Eleven. I really enjoyed it. I also read a book by Tarryn Fisher called The Wives which I didn’t enjoy because I hated the ending. I find myself reaching for quick, light, mindless reads. My brain has been so heavy lately I think fluff is nice.
Watching: I laughed my way through Sex Education on Netflix. It’s sad and cute and funny and light hearted but serious too. I’m currently without a show so I think I might just take one of Rita’s audio book recommendations for a spin.
Making: I’m playing in my sketchbook every now and again because it’s soothing. I also volunteered to help organize this year’s Battle of the Books at Abram’s school, so I’ve been making spreadsheets and posters and I love it. Last week I made Rice Krispie treats for a class thing and it felt so good to be in the kitchen – even making something simple. I fell out of the habit in the busy of here there and everywhere and dinner many nights has consisted of sandwiches or take out.
I hope you are well. What are you making, watching, reading, listening to? Any other -ing you want to share?
