Weekend Knitting and Visiting

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. Today it was a lovely day outside. It was so sunny and warm. I drove to my visit my parents and get my tires changed for the Spring. I had dinner with them and we kept our distance and my sister joined us too. It was really nice to spend some time with them and be careful at the same time due to the virus.

I knitted more of the sock this weekend and did a lot last night while watching YouTube. I get a lot of my knitting done while watching videos. I am knitting the Sunshine on My Feet pattern by The Kitchen Shop. It has been a fun and quick knitting project and I think I will be done the first sock this week.

I finished reading The Testaments by Margaret Atwood and really enjoyed reading the end of the book. I feel like it picked up for me at the end. I saw that this book got some bad reviews on goodreads, but I think the response is mixed and I am among the people who enjoyed it. I think maybe because I haven't read The Handmaid's Tale yet, but I have seen the show, I didn't have as high of expectations as others who have read the book. I am continuing to read Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and started on a light read called Average is the New Awesome by Samantha Matt. It is an interesting read so far. I think we all don't want to think we are "Average", but the reality is that most people are average and that is okay. I think I am average and try to better myself and to learn new things and be the best version of who I am, but in general I am average in many aspects of life. I think reading this book so far has already made me feel like being good, but not the best at work and other aspects of life can be a good thing and we should not get too stressed or hard on ourselves if we are average.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! It was such a nice weekend getting things done around the apartment and also visiting my family after months of not going to their house. I also enjoyed seeing their cats and also kept my distance because I didn't want to pet them too much. How was your weekend?

Have a great day!
