It's a new month and that means it's time to take a look back at…
Here’s what’s happening in my world. Right now.
Making: More watercolors with the waterlogue app. The one above was suggested by Bonny.
Wondering: How I’m going to get good book recommendations now that the Books on the Nightstand podcast is ending. I’ll certainly be relying on you all to keep me informed.
Reading: Dark Tide: The Great Molasses Flood of 1919. It’s for a square on my summer book bingo card that reads set in the place where you live. Boston is close enough for me and this book is actually quite interesting.
Listening: LaRose by Louise Erdrich. It’s sad, oh so very sad, but in a really soulful and satisfying way. Erdrich describes grief in one passage as knocking someone to his knees and that’s just what I mean – beautiful and lovely but heartbreaking.
Knitting: Socks. And the endless Zick Zack Scarf. And Algiers. I am not making much progress but that’s okay.
Enjoying: A new knitting group that just started at my local library. It’s great to get out for a little while with like minded individuals, especially when two of those individuals are Blogless Sharon and Jo-Ann. My only complaint (and it’s not really a complaint) is that our meetings are only scheduled for an hour. I’m just getting started and BAM! it’s time to go.
Anticipating: A vacation to somewhere new. We’re creatures of habit who love to go to the same places over and over but not this time. I’ll fill you in soon, I promise.
Celebrating: That I fixed that spreadsheet problem I mentioned on Tuesday. Hooray!
Despising: Passive aggressive people. Be gone with you!
Loving: My perennial garden. I’ve weeded (which I seldom due) and pulled invasive stuff and planted new stuff and it looks fresh and pretty.
Watching: Our vegetables grow. We have tiny tomato blossoms and itty bitty cucumbers!
