Happy Friday, friends. I hope you’re finding some Good Things to celebrate this week … here are five of mine.
Thing One. The Polar Coat. It’s finished. It fits. It’s warm. I’ve worn it lots. and I LOVE it. Lydia took some photos when we met up for coffee last Friday.This might be my favorite indoor FO backdrop ever – the lobby of a nearby hotel and yes, that is a horse, coming through a wall of grass. The pockets are one of my favorite things about this sweater (well, aside from all those things I said already). I am so glad I included them!I wasn’t sure about the longer length (I’m 5’6″ tall) … again, good call to just go with the pattern.knits on knits 🙂 it’s great for layering!
Thing Two. The sun is shining. “Abudant sunshine” is our weekend forecast. Marc spent two hours at the driving range this afternoon.
Thing Three. Homeland’s final season premiered on Sunday and I finally watched the episode. Thankfully, I’d already listened to Sara’s podcast so I knew it was just “setting the table”. tense, but nothing terrible. I texted her after I watched that this might be the best way for me to experience the show!
Thing Four. My amaryllis are blooming.Is it weird that the green leaves are so much taller than the flowers?
two more buds still to open!
Thing Five. We had our neighborhood bookclub last night to discuss Educated – and a bunch of other things, including the recent publication of Layla Saad’s Me and White Supremacy (I pre-ordered the book and it’s beautiful; based on what I’m seeing on social media – which is still a closely curated feed! – the book is getting all the good attention it deserves). I mentioned (or maybe went on and on?!) about how impactful it had been for me last February when I worked through the free download materials. Our hostess ordered the book on the spot and said she’d read it with me. She also baked cookies.
Wishing y’all a wonderful weekend … full of good things!
