The very short version is that I'm having a great spring break and that as of today, I'm the sole owner of my house!

So, I slept late this morning, and then spent a few hours in bed reading, now I'm in my favorite coffee shop, browsing blogs, Twitter, and Instagram, and drinking coffee, before I wander over to the Slover library for more books. I've really been on a reading binge lately and while I love that I'm reading more, it means I haven't been doing much else. My house is pretty messy, my Apple Cider Donut sweater is still unfinished, although I am ready to start the sleeves, and there are numerous other projects I want to do that are still undone. Still, the cold weather is a good time for reading, so I'm going to embrace it while I can. I seem to remember lamenting the fact that I wasn't reading enough not that long ago. Apparently,questioning whether or not I'm using my time wisely is a constant comcern of mine. At least Gracie is happy when I stay home and read. She climbed right up on my lap, as usual.
I did manage to walk a bit yesterday, despite the cold and gloom. I was visiting a friend who is recovering from knee replacement surgery and we decided to drive to the beach; we went to Back Bay National Wildlife Reserve, which is not too far from his house.

Although it's only February, it looks like spring has arrived. The daffodils and crocus are blooming in my front yard, although by this time next weekend, there may be snow on these flowers.

I had a lovely relaxing weekend with old friends watching football this past weekend and knitting up a storm. I'm working on the Apple Cider Donut Cardigan from the Rhinebeck Sweaters book, using the Green Mountain Spinnery Weekend Wool yarn I thought I was going to use for the Mary Rebecca pattern, before I read the pattern more carefully and realized I needed DK for that one. Rookie mistake, especially since I had knit it up to the armholes already last year. The only reason I had ripped it out was that I needed to change the size. So that was kind of lucky, right? This is the pattern photo from Ravelry; my color is raspberry.
