… until Marc and I get our second shots. I haven’t knitted a stitch today (so far), nor have I even thought about getting a hand knit near a dryer. Instead, I’ve been reading and planning more reading, and browsing Instagram for half-square-triangle quilt ideas. Depending on how long it takes me to post this, I also might try for a nap. …so yeah, today does feel a little weird 😉 and hopefully a solid TGIF post will right things!
Thinking about … a potential new volunteer opportunity. With my four-year term leading our church’s Women’s Ministry coming to an end, I have some space. A friend texted me just a week after I shared about that upcoming end to ask if I might be willing to join The Encouragement Project. I said yes. Last week I talked with the Executive Director, and yesterday I met her and two of the board members (my friend is one) at the park. We talked, we shared ideas, we think I might be a fit … the next step is in my court.
Grateful for … this Spring. My first spring in Atlanta was 1980 – so this is what, #42? and it seems like the best ever. The weather, the colors, the blooms!, it’s all amazing. and I’m not the only one … my small group all agreed this morning that this one is special!
Inspired by … summer bookclub and read-along selections! Most of the little covers pictured above are for Modern Mrs. Darcy. Shuggie Bain is, of course, for Read with Us (I snagged the Audible Daily Deal last week), and The Duchess Deal is one a few Instagram friends have said I must read! You can be SURE that my Summer Bingo card will include squares for all of these titles!
Fun! A Real Red polish (Olive & June CV … I LOVE reds, and I’m honestly not sure why I just now decided to get this one – it’s the only “real red” in their collection) arrived in the mail this week. and now I have three more books bumping up to the top of my TBR pile. I already have two easier reads in progress/on tap for the weekend (both library books), so these three are a little ways out. Soon, though, soon.
How has your Spring compared to previous years?
Wishing you the best weekend available!
