Hello, everyone! I’m assuming most of you are hunkered down at home as much as possible. I have friends who are still going to an office each day but more and more starting to work from home. I’m extremely grateful I made the decision to give up the classroom and work from home several months ago. Having a rhythm to my days has kept me from overreacting (too much).
Last week I had said that it was taking me forever to get through Jefferson’s Daughters until I was suddenly done. Turns out, a big chunk of the book is notations. So I was finished earlier than I’d thought (you can read my review here).
I’ve been reading some widely differing opinions on my current read, The Ten Thousand Doors of January. I had first thought I’d made a mistake choosing this from the library. It had a weird not-quite-Madeline-L’Engle feel to it. But the library is now closed and I’m trying not to add expenses by purchasing anything for my Kindle so I stuck with it. (Full disclosure: I bought a $1.99 collection of Sarah Orne Jewett but that’s been all.)
I’m now about 1/2 way through and my opinion has changed. This one is really stories within stories so it shifts just when you need to change. And having some escapism is a welcome thing right now.
I’m sticking with my March knitting goals although I don’t think I’ll finish the projects I’d hoped to finish. In theory, I have more “downtime” but in reality I’m doing just as much. Less chauffering children, naturally, but the regular day to day running of a household is still happening.
The socks are on the toe. I didn’t think I’d be able to focus on them while knitting online with a group so I spent more time working on the ADVENT KAL 😉 from A Homespun House. The sock will be done today and the second well underway sometime this evening.
Time to get back to work for today. I hope everyone is doing well. I’ll leave you with two posts I saw on Instagram and Facebook this week.
