Up much too early today, my head swirling with the details of the day ahead. Classroom parties, parent group celebration, tidying up my desk so I can leave work at work for the next two weeks. Spent some time listening to Magpie Murders, knitting a few rounds, and writing in this beautiful Tumeric notebook. Time to make a cuppa and get myself ready for the day. Fortunately the Friday night wine and cheese have been acquired so the evening ahead will be a lovely way to begin Christmas break.
p.s. if you have some time, please visit this fun blog. Erin is a friend of my daughter and she’s is a very creative spirit. She also has the most lovely smile.
I am happy to report that there is a finished object in my house. And I have made good progress on my sweater, although there was a bit of unravelling. I needed it to be a bit longer before splitting for the sleeves.
I noticed that Karen has a shelf on Goodreads marked – own, need to read. What a great idea. So up next maybe this book or this one? I was also gifted another book so you can see that I have plenty of options.
I have a bunch of little things to do today and then plan to have a bit of reading time after lunch. Did you know that tomorrow is Thanksgiving?
Just curious. Anyone planning to join in with the Project Peace 2017 KAL? I very much want to start planning for this but I also want to be realistic.
I finished All Over Creation and I very much liked it. There were so many themes that touched my own life and characters that I liked. I am not sure what comes next. I have two audio books ready to go but I have neglected my podcasts so maybe I will play catch up before I start another book.
Happy Saturday. Mine is a rare one with not one single thing on my calendar – just what I need.
I love reading blogs. This has been such a fun month with bloggers posting daily. Here are three things about blogging that are on my mind:
- Why do I have to keep clicking the I’m not a robot box on so many blogs lately?
- I like to read blogs with a variety of topics because honestly, isn’t that what life is all about?
- I love link lists on blogs! That is how I end up traveling down so many rabbit holes!
Thanks to everyone publishing a daily post this month. I know it takes time to write and post. I try to comment on as many blogs as I am able and I have really enjoyed getting to know a few of you from blog connections. And best of all, just a wee bit longer and we will be on to Friday!
This afternoon I am going to Vogue Knitting Live with my daughters. We attended the marketplace the last time VKL was in our area and we were looking for something fun to do – just the three of us – before my younger daughter’s wedding this weekend. We are just going to the Marketplace and then out to dinner but I know it will be so fun. I think we all know so much more about knitting and all things wool than we did a few years ago.
I am casting on for a tiny person vest. I am hoping it might go quickly enough to be a first birthday gift (just a short month away!).
Hope your Friday is fiber-filled!
My weekend was filled with some lovely #tinytinymoments
- A wonderful day with our tiny person (including an nap for him and some organizing time for me!)
- The baptism of that same tiny person
- Casting off and weaving in ends which means a finished object
- A fairly successful shopping trip for something to wear to an upcoming wedding
- Two new recipes that will become regulars
- An interval run on a crisp afternoon
And now, a Monday off from work so the loveliness can continue.
While I am not a fan of the extreme heat, I am looking forward to this month. Yes, I am returning to work but the schedule is pretty flexible so there is time for a morning run or sitting on the deck with a book before work. And I am recommitting to healthy eating this month high is so much easier when the produce market is filled with cress fruits and veggies.
I am trying to free some of my needles with Andi's KAL but I have also cast on for Helen's next shawl pattern. And after winding my sock blank, I am ready to begin my first socks. So many pretty patterns have been recommended, not sure how I will choose. And of course I am hoping for a few bingos on my summer reading card.
Thanks Carole and Kat for Think Write Thursday.
