Hello friends. I’m glad we have set aside one day a week for unraveling. I watched Anne Bogel’s Stay at Home Bookclub today … she was the guest author for her latest book Don’t Overthink It (which I thought was amazing) … and one of her coping strategies is to schedule your overthinking time. like in a 15-minute window. Wouldn’t it be lovely to think about all of our unraveling time as happening in just this one day a week? Of course that’s not really how it goes. Y’all have been kind in the comments to let me know how much you appreciate my positive voice right now and I am grateful for that reinforcement of my general world view 😉 thank you! things are definitely not all smooth sailing in my house, but in the big scheme of things, I think we are still healthy, anxious, tired, grateful and making-do.
These posts are typically about making and reading, and I have been doing a bit of both. On the knitting front, I finished Anker’s on Sunday (and wore it today)
and promptly started another short sleeved crew neck pullover … with a much smaller gauge and a much darker yarn.
This is Notice … Monday
and last nightDaily photo FTW otherwise I wouldn’t have any progress to share.
On the reading front, my current reads shelf is remarkably slim.
It’s not that I’m so into these three books I can’t read anything else … it’s that I’m listening to a lot of podcasts, knitting, doing other stuff and basically NOT reading. The good news is that I’m pretty sure I’ll end up loving these books. (post for another day, but if you’ve noticed that my Goodreads reviews are trending up it’s because I’m only reading AND finishing books I’m pretty sure I’ll love.)
Finally, I am really looking forward to another Zoom meet-up this weekend. Please mark your calendars for Sunday, March 29 at 2pm ET:
