|yesterday evening, on the porch, with my sister, Holly, a bottle of wine and knitting|
Loving: Porch time.
Hoping: My tennis elbow really does get better with rest, care and therapy (my first PT appointment is Monday). The rest and care is taking a toll on my knitting, for sure!
Reading: The Cuckoo’s Calling on Audible (so good…and I’m delighted there’s more Cormoran Strike already published) and A Sport and Pastime on my Kindle (also good). I’m finding it hard to balance the eyes and ears, but grateful I have time for both right now.
Watching: Not much. All the reading is consuming me. But I do want to watch the last season of Mad Men (I heard it was well-done) and of course I need to catch up with Outlander. Maybe once I can knit more…
Splurging: On new glasses. That eye exam I’d been putting off told me my prescription had changed a lot since I got my first progressive sunglasses back in 2008. I’m amazed how well I can see – on the highway! – with the new ones. I also got prescription readers for knitting and wow! and finally, I updated my over-the-counter readers (because really don’t we need readers in every room?!) to better match the new prescription. (I can also say I’m slightly appalled at how many pairs of readers I had collected … and will now donate).
Craving: Some sort of routine for exercise, work and play. These past few weeks have been fun, but my body and my mind are ready for some discipline.
Wearing: Sonnet James dresses. They’re so easy to wear and care for…thank you to Katie for introducing them to me.
Knitting: Not much. and it’s so weird.
Drinking: Dry white Italian wines. I’ve been a Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc girl forever; this is new territory for me!
Eating: Berries with greek yogurt and walnuts and (still) avocado sandwiches.
Wondering: How I can keep up with the Prayer Shawl Ministry. Our meetings are Tuesday afternoons and that’s really not a great time to be out and about with an almost toddler who needs an afternoon nap. I’m also wondering how I got so darned busy that I can’t really think of another time I could suggest we meet?!
Remembering: Last summer and my first trip to Madison (and then the second when Sara lived there…and I flew back to Atlanta by myself).
Anticipating: Pool time with Charlie. Katie says he loves the water and that might be what gets me in…I think the last time I wore a swimsuit was November 2013 when Marc and I were in the Dominican Republic (and I’m not even sure I can remember when before that!)
How about you – what’s current in your world?
