I hope you are doing well. This weekend I went for a walk with Liam and I really enjoyed the warm sunny day walking through a local park that is now open. It had been closed due to the Covid-19 virus. There were so many couples walking their dogs, families sitting on the grass, neighbors catching up from a distance. It was nice to feel the weight of this virus lifting a bit, but we were still being cautious not to get too close to others. The playground at this park was still blocked off with caution tape so children wouldn't go and play on the jungle gym or swings. It really felt so great being outside walking with Liam like we always do in the Spring and Summer months and felt like normal.
Today I knitted more of the sock using the pattern Sunshine on My Feet by the Kitchen Sink Shop found on Ravelry. I like how the striping yarn is turning out on the sock Patons Kroy Sock yarn in the colorway Tourmaline stripes.
I worked on the cat puzzle I shared last weekend. I got all the edge pieces set up and I will probably be done this one in a week. I am really enjoying doing puzzles again and got back into puzzles since the quarantine started.
I am continuing to read The Testaments by Margaret Atwood and really love the story line. I picked up Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert again and it is so inspirational so far. Her main point is that ideas will come to us and if we don't take hold of them and bring them to life, the ideas will move on to a more willing person who will do that. It is a very interesting concept. She says many of her fiction and non-fiction ideas that she had once abandoned were written by other people, so she believes that the idea had moved on to someone else. I think I may have encountered this with ideas in the past and sometimes not gone ahead with an idea, and then someone brought it up later because I had not acted on it.
How was your weekend?
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope that you are all safe and healthy. I feel like this virus is winding down now and I really hope that we can have a "normal" Summer and that this ends soon.
