Good morning, friends! This isn’t the post I was planning to write today because I’m ran out of time for that one (seems to be a theme on Mondays), but I wanted to write something very quickly this morning, no matter how superficial it might be! So this is just an update on some of the things I did this weekend in the time I managed to eke out for myself.
It was a muggy and hot weekend, so it makes sense that I spent much of it with a pile of wool in my lap:
I finished the first sleeve on my DRK Everyday Sweater! When writing in my Five Year Journal last night, I looked back a bit and remembered that 2020 was the summer when I was finishing a sweater every month. What happened to that person? Oh well – here I am now and am hoping to start the second sleeve today and perhaps a FO post is in store for me as well? Who knows. Maybe it will take me a year to finish that second sleeve.
We’re expecting thunderstorms today and I am so excited. Yesterday was a 58% chance and now it has increased to 97% — I like those odds. Matthew returned to work last night and Colton will be returning to treatment today. We’re also scheduled to resume homeschooling today. I am hoping for a smooth re-entry to the world.
Last night I started watching Grantchester while knitting on that second sleeve. I am embarrassed to say that I’ve never seen any of this series and PBS is already airing the seventh season! It’s quite good but that’s not surprising because I really enjoy their summer Mystery series, although (clearly) I haven’t been as dedicated to it as I thought. Still working to finish Atlantic Crossing and the Thor movies (I’m about 2/3 through the second one. I still don’t understand how that bridge thingy was rebuilt by the beginning of the movie and I am highly agitated by that. Perhaps the answer is in another Marvel movie? But I’m not ready to take a wider plunge.). And I have less than 4 hours left in the audio of The Books of Jacob – hallelujah. I’m ready for this thing to end, but it has gotten slightly more enjoyable for me as it’s gone on.
And now my time is up this morning! I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week – take good care.
