[Edited before posting: Because of Typepad's continuing frustrating . . . issue. . . I have spent far too long this morning trying to get a great photo of my Alabama Chanin project. It will not load. I give up. Maybe tomorrow.]
April . . . just flew by!
Although the weather is not reliable quite yet, it is definitely more spring-like. And I'll take that. (Even though the early part of spring is always one of the most unattractive times of the year.)
(But at least the snow is finally gone.)
What's happening in my world . . . RIGHT NOW?
Watching . . . A storm rolling in. Leaves popping out. Robins making a nest in my pergola. (It'll be a few weeks before I'll dare get my swing out!)
Reading . . . Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez . . . a re-read of one of my favorites, in memory of one of my favorite authors. I'm also reading Bach: Music in Castle of Heaven by John Eliot Gardiner. (This one will take awhile. I like having a big ol' biography by my bed to read before I sleep. Sometimes it takes months to finish, but that's fine with me.)
Knitting . . . Not much, actually. Not much at all, in fact! Instead, I've become totally immersed in hand stitching -- and obsessed with my Alabama Chanin project. (Addicting, I tell you. Totally addicting.) I do have one knintting project on the needles: Another folded poncho! This one for summer, in Hempathy. (My goal is to bring this to Italy when I leave at the end of August. Any bets?)
Listening to . . . Bach's Brandenburg Concertos. (Inspired by my reading, of course. Plus one of my favorite pieces of classical music.)
Dreading . . . Yet another dinner of baked spaghetti! It's very good and all, but one pan lasts for days (and days!) when Tom is not around to share.
Humming . . . ALL of the songs from Grease. I blame an old friend who posted something on Facebook yesterday that seems to have triggered the onslaught. (I'll spare you.)
Wondering . . . Where all these ants coming from? Right here! In my kitchen!
Drinking . . . A lot of water! (Trying to up my daily intake.)
Itching to . . . Plant my herb garden. But it's still too early.
Needing to . . . Finish cleaning up my garden beds.
Organizing . . . Inspired by my newly-organized closet, I'm ready to tackle my jewelry box next.
Delighted by . . . The whole Alabama Chanin thing. I'm completely charmed. (Can you tell?)
[REALLY GREAT PHOTO SUPPOSED TO GO HERE!!!]
Inspired by . . . My closet re-fresh. Enough so, that I'm ready to tackle every corner of my life in an effort to further pare down and minimize.
Celebrating . . . So. Many. Things. Tom's imminent return (from weeks in Mumbai). Brian's graduation. My dad's birthday. And a special visit -- from someone all of you know!!!
Pleased with . . . Myself! For sticking with my running -- something I NEVER dreamed I would do. (I'm now up to a regular 4+ mile course -- hills and all!)
How about YOU? What's going on for you . . . Right Now?
