These past few days I’ve had this almost FIFTEEN year old post in my head (when I had to take a prescribed break from running) and somehow forgot I even wrote this one seven-plus years ago (the last time I … Continue reading Celebrating the Other Things.
Happy Friday, friends! I’ve been tempted these last few days to get full-on into May-mode, and I was grateful for the reminder this afternoon that May doesn’t start until Sunday. So let me put my Present Hat back on and … Continue reading TGIF | Late April.
Thank you all for your well wishes on our second shots. I am beyond grateful they’re behind us (with a lingering rash – me – and a slight headache – Marc, which might also be allergies) and now I can look forward without any anxiety to mid-May when our whole family will be past that 14-day post-vaccine window. But it was a weird weekend. The power went out JUST as we were leaving for our vaccine appointments.

Apart from my weekly FaceTime with Diane tomorrow morning and church on Sunday (our annual cannot-miss Youth Service, which concludes with a slide show that always makes me cry … “kids” I taught in Sunday School a few years back are now graduating college.

Delighted to be joining in with Kat and friends today with an update on my knitting and reading. Today’s story is a bit unusual – for the past three days I’ve been monogamous to my knitting and my reading. It does make for progress! I’m almost halfway through the body on the crew-neck side of Sayer. I’ve been switching between the knitting (with a steady stream of podcasts playing on my phone) and the reading. This is A Necessary Evil (the second in the Sam Wyndham series) and it’s just as good as the first. I’ve also really been enjoying … Continue reading Unraveled Wednesday | Monogamy.
