I took photos one morning of everything that is flowering at the moment, and it surprised me how many different blooms I had.
I started to dust the large bookshelf in the living room last Friday night, and ended up "konmari-ing" it, which means I pulled every single book off of every single bookcase. I took a photo, mid process:
I have three bookcases in the living room, one in the sunroom, and one in my bedroom, plus the cookbook shelf in the kitchen, and the bookcase for yarn and craft books in the yarn room. I finally finished on Sunday morning.
I finally made it to the beach a couple of times; it is so relaxing to sit under my umbrella and chat with a friend or two, especially if there's a nice breeze. Beach time means I've been able to knit a couple of washcloths for my gift closet.
I'm almost finished with the Playground Shawl; I've enjoyed this pattern, as it's an easy one to remember, but being able to switch from garter to lace whenever I want keeps it interesting as well.
When I'm not in the yard, I've been reading quite a bit; despite all the books I own, there's not much I love more than going to the library and checking out a big stack of books. I just finished The Summer Before the War, which I loved. It's a satisfyingly long read, set in pre-WWI England. I've tried to watch a couple of series so I can knit, but nothing is keeping my interest lately. I really need to try out some of the many podcasts I've heard about and see if I like them.
Gracie thinks I should sit on the couch with her a little more often. She's looking a little judgy here, don't you think?
