Knitting Hearts and Reading On

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I can't believe how soon Valentine's Day is now. It is right around the corner.  I decided to knit up a small heart for Valentines Day this year just for fun. I used a pattern from Julie & the knits blog. It is a quick knit and I was thinking it would make really nice garland if you string some of these hearts together onto a long piece of yarn.



I am still reading Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty and things are getting interesting. I know I always say that in every post lately about this book, but there will be something happening soon, I can feel it and it makes me want to just read and finish the book in one sitting. I might just do that this weekend.
I am still also reading How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie during my morning routine each day and I am almost finished reading it. I have been applying the tips he suggests and already feel like I am more patient with others and empathetic than before. I look forward to revisiting the lessons by going over the points I underlined every now and then to refresh myself on the strategies on how to best get along with others and do business with them.


I got to decorating a bit for Valentine's Day today by putting out the two stuffed animals above. I received the monkey from Liam last Valentine's Day and I bought the dog with the heart when I was single. I don't usually decorate for Valentine's Day because it comes around so fast and is a quick holiday, but I saw them sitting on my chair in the office along with many others and decided to put them out on the living room chair. Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?

  3. I don't usually decorate my house for valentines either but I did make a little heart garland and lots of little hearts for a sweet little girl I know, I enjoyed it so much I made another for myself and have it pinned in my lobby. I'll be interested to see what your final review is like of this book, I've never read anything from this author before. Have a great weekend. :) xx

    1. The heart garland sounds like it would be fun to hang each year. I might made some more hearts to be able to have a garland ready for next year. I loved the book and definitely recommend. I really liked her other book Truly Madly Guilty as well. Hope you enjoyed the weekend too!
