The calendar is filled with track practices and choir concerts and pick ups and drop offs and on the nights when someone says, “Should we watch an episode of TNG?”, I savor it. I want to slow down time.
Here are some things:
Knitting: I finished the socks from socks, blocked them and mailed them out to their recipient as a belated birthday gift and added a few more squares to my blanket. My to do list says that I’m going to start knitting my sheep pillow this week, but I’ve cast on another pair of socks.
Reading: I finished The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow. It took me forever to read and I don’t know why. I just couldn’t stay engaged in it despite loving the story and the writing. Has that ever happened to you? I’ve just started Matrix by Lauren Groff (Rita‘s recommendation, I think) and I think I’m going to like it. I need recommendations. I’ve fallen behind in my goal and need to catch up.
Watching: I’ve been watching a lot. Euphoria (HBO) is dark and heartbreaking but also sweet and good. I could talk about it for hours. I’m loving The Gilded Age (HBO) and found Inventing Anna (Netflix) absolutely fascinating. I feel like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Prime) has seemed darker this season. Still funny. Just heavier. Anyone else watching – do you feel that way too? I’m looking forward to the newest season of Bridgerton (Netflix).
Making: Vacation plans. After years of being home bound we all are excited to stretch our wings a bit. We took a family ski trip to Lutsen, MN in the end of February and I don’t know that there is a much better view than snow, Lake Superior, sky. I got back on skis and enjoyed it enough to go again last Saturday at a local hill. V will heading to NYC for a school choir trip over spring break while Abram and I are going to Florida for a few days to get some sunshine. A spring bucket list. I managed to finish 6/10 of my winter list. My workbook is a bit of a mess and full of “kindergartener art” but I like having a place to play and jot things down. (Random aside: I definitely feel like I’m getting younger as I get older.) Headway in my spring cleaning. I crank a playlist and get to work deep cleaning. It’s so satisfying. I’m going to have an epic yard sale this spring.
That’s most of my news. I hope you are all doing well. Would love to hear what you are -ing if you have the time.
