I didn’t intend to let almost a whole week go by without visiting this space, but I did. It certainly wasn’t because I was super-busy, or distracted by other things or (sadly) someplace else having fun in the sun. I guess I just needed a break. and I’m so glad I’m at the point in my life where I’m good with that. I thought about y’all a lot this week and drafted a good half dozen posts in my head. But sitting down on Friday afternoon to actually write one turns out to be hard. So I’m going with a tried and true format.
Around here the weather went from Spring! to … chilly wet grey … to thunderstorms … and back to chilly wet grey … all in less than 24 hours.
Around here I enjoyed a completely delightful day with Charlie on Wednesday. It was a #legolove day with chick-fil-a and popcorn. We colored Legos, assembled Legos
and then went to see Lego Movie 2. It was Charlie’s first movie experience and I was honored to be part of it. also – the movie was fun!
Around here I am back into knitting, finishing!
and wearing handknit socks (in “chunky” gauges only).
Around here the amaryllis is blooming (and fading) brilliantly.
Around here I’ve started a new sweater.
Around here the secret knitting is nearly done … it’s Shibui Reed and Cima held together on a size 6 needle. I’m looking forward to meeting the March 1 deadline, but I’m gonna miss the pleasure of these fibers.
Around here I’m listening to podcasts (The Daily, The Argument, Pantsuit Politics, Good Ancestor, Call Your Girlfriend, On Being). again. after a very long break.
Around here I’m reading slowly. (well, except for finishing up the last Maisie Dobbs on Tuesday afternoon while the rain beat down on the roof. Holly and I snuggled on the bed. It was lovely).
Around here I am 54 days into a daily breakfast habit. and a new calendar habit. which I still need to share with y’all. soon.
Around here … I’m grateful for this space. for each of you. and for the weekend!
