I don't have any finished knitting for you right now. I'm knitting but it's very slow and methodical. A pair or 2 of handwarmers in a chunky-ish weight yarn.
I have not been knitting as much as I'd like mainly because by the time I have time, I'm exhausted.
But you know, I'm busy. It's not crazy. I might be crazy, but things aren't. I'm just busy. But here are a few highlights of the past week. (I know you were just dying for the info.)
My son has not been very active since Fall soccer finished. We didn't push it. We thought we'd give him some time to continue focusing on his first semester in High School. We thought, you know, he can use this time to maybe see if there are other interests or sports he'd like to explore besides soccer. (We can feel the interest waning)
Well what the heck to parents know? Squat. The Kid does better with some structure. He does not self explore without a nudge out the door.
So I signed him up for a 5k. He was not excited to be there.
I was even less enthused. I've been really good about being consistently active but the running thing? Yeah not feeling it. The things we do out of love ...
I haven't been baking much either. Just biscuits. I'm kind of obsessed with a new to me buttermilk biscuit recipe. It's so easy and so rewarding. But that will change. Next month both soccer for him and softball for me start up. Cookies for spring sports.
The Teen took a turn in the kitchen after his Dad brought home a bunch of lemons. A lemon posset so simple and so delicious. Give it a try. Bonus points if you can get someone else to make it for you.
This Tuesday I went to a Silent Reading Party hosted by some local do gooders. People come together in a public space to read silently for about 2 hours. Drink purchases and donations go towards a local underfunded public school library. I used to tease a good friend of mine who served as hostess this month about this concept, but I really enjoyed it. I think that I haven't been able to read for more than 30 mins at a time before that. I was home in time to spend most of the evening with my family ... and hopefully I left a small donation that will put a book in some students' hands.
Wishing you all a good weekend. Be happy, healthy and crafty.
