March came in like a lion . . . but it's (pretty much) going out like a lamb.
I know spring -- and especially early spring (like . . . March) is fickle. But I'm sure ready for the Real Deal to begin!
Here's what's happing for me . . . Right Now.
Watching Well. Nothing on television. Because I've decided to move into a cave until the ugliness of the presidential campaign is behind us. (I do come out to vote.) (And watch movies.)
Reading In my ears: The Story of the Lost Child by Elena Ferrante (the 4th in this excellent quartet; I'm going to miss this series after I read this one); in print: The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks (good; compelling; but . . . well. Confusing Bible names throw me off.)
Knitting An adorable little toddler pullover for a great-niece-in-law (Tom's brother's son's daughter). I missed making her a baby sweater (because timing) -- so need to hurry and get this toddler sweater off the needles before she grows some more!
Listening to Bruce Hornsby. (We'll be seeing him in concert as part of the Gilmore Piano Festival next month.)
Dreading Taxes. This weekend. They WILL be done. (And that is all I'm gonna say about that.)
Drinking Chocolate milk. Red wine. Whisky. (But not together.)
Planning I'm creating my "Plant Watch List" of things I want for my garden this year. I do this each year -- and it's a great way for me to stay loyal to my garden plan. (Because it's so tempting to just start buying every pretty bloom I see. And especially in the spring, when I'm starved for blooms.)
Looking Forward to Riding my new birthday bike. Something new . . . a bit of a risk . . . but certainly - adventures ahead!
Humming Bennie and the Jets. (Yeah. Still.) (I tried to embed a video, but they're all restricted. You'll have to sing it on your own.) (I'm sure you already are. . . )
Itching to Do some sewing. A copy of Merchant & Mills new Workbook (long ago pre-ordered) arrived in my mailbox yesterday.
Delighted by Tea Drops. My sister sent me a box for my birthday. Tasty. Cool. And they work just the way they say they will!
Organizing I continue chipping away at organizing my digital photos. It's a giant task -- and may never be truly complete. But I'm working at it. (It's made me just put my "real" camera aside for the time being. Because, really. I don't want more photos to organize right now.)
Enjoying Thunderstorms! When they aren't violent, I just love a good thunderstorm.
Celebrating The end of an era and the beginning of something new. ;-)
How about YOU? What's happening for you . . . right now?
