Knitting Socks and Reading Updates

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I have been having a good week so far. I feel like the weeks go by so fast and it is already Wednesday night. I think being in quarantine and working from home make the days fly by because each day feels similar and before you know it, its Friday again and it doesn't feel like a regular Friday. Fridays still feel special because we pick up dinner and Liam goes to LCBO and gets us wine and beer for the weekend. I am looking forward to the weekend already! Tonight Liam and I went for a walk and last night we did as well. I like this new nightly routine after dinner, we catch up and spend time chatting after working from home all day, getting fresh air, and feeling like things are somewhat normal. Tonight we walked a different route closer to the main street and it was nice to venture off the beaten path a bit.

I have knitted more of the sock, I am using the pattern Sunshine on My Feet by the Kitchen Sink Shop on Ravelry. I like how the pattern is not too complicated and easy to follow along as I watch videos or listen to an audiobook.

I finished reading the book Help Me! One Woman’s Quest to Find Out if Self-Help Really Can Change Her Life by Marianne Power yesterday. I have been reading this one on and off for months and able to borrow it back from the library online when I lose my loan. It was a great book and there were a lot of interesting experiences she had because of reading some of the books and she learned from her self help journey. I like when I can take some tips on bettering myself from a self help book and apply it to my life. I am still reading The Testaments by Margaret Atwood and Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert.

My parents just celebrated their 35 year Anniversary! They inspire me and have always been there for each other in good times and bad. I really love this picture of them and this photo shows the love and warmth they have and emit to us and to each other. I love them so much and I can't wait to see them and give them hugs again.


After our walk I worked on the quote board below and looked up some quarantine quotes to leave an inspirational message on our shelf. I like this simple quote below "Keep calm and stay home".

Thank you for visiting my blog today and hope that you are doing well during this time. It is a weird time and we are all trying to make the best of it. I have quite a few hobbies I did at home before this quarantine time and doing them a lot more now like knitting, reading, and blogging so I pass my time a lot between those things. Some new things I have been doing more often are doing puzzles,developing new cleaning routines, and starting to try new stitches each week. What have you been up to lately while in quarantine?

Have a great day!

  1. Happy anniversary to your parents! WE are approaching 33 years :) I agree the days blur together and the days go quickly by. But it feels like forever being in a shutdown.
