I hope you are doing well. I am still working through the unpacking and deciding where things go. Yesterday, Liam and I put most of the kitchen stuff away and washed gifts we received from family and friends. We secured the tarp over our outdoor furniture for the Winter. It is a new world for us because before we didn't have any outdoor space at all and now we have a terrace. We look forward to enjoying sitting out there in the warmer months. I was relieved today that we covered the terrace furniture yesterday, because today it was snowing all day! It was a Winter wonderland outside. I went for a walk around the neighborhood and went to a nearby store. It was nice to walk around and see everything coated in a blanket of white snow. It is still snowing as I type this. It is cozy seeing the snow falling against the light outside our window.
I picked up the needles again today because I finally found my knitting bag that I had packed up. I knitted a few rows of the scarf for Liam for Christmas. I am knitting him the Men's rib ridge scarf pattern found on Ravelry by Purl Avenue. It felt good to knit again and make a bit of progress. Christmas is fast approaching!
I have been reading Atomic Habits by James Clear. It is good so far and I am looking forward to reading more of his tips on keeping habits. I believe habits are so important to live life to the fullest. As James explains, if we even have some small habits we do each day to improve our lives, then by the end of the year we will see some improvement rather than doing nothing and seeing zero improvement. I also got my hold for Beach Read by Emily Henry back from the library using Overdrive, so I will start reading it again soon.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I will get back to my regular posting schedule starting this week on Wednesdays and find my routine again. Last week was busy at work and also trying to get settled in. It was good to have the weekend to get more done. I hope that you are all doing well too. It is a difficult holiday season with Covid-19 still going on. In Toronto we are officially in lockdown tomorrow on Monday because cases kept rising so Ford made the announcement on Friday. So only essential shopping is available and more restrictions like only seeing household members which is what I have been doing lately. I am continuing to work from home. This whole year has been so different, working from home fulltime, and not seeing loved ones and friends as often. I look forward to normal life again once this is over and we can go back to visiting family and friends and going to a movie. Hopefully we can get the vaccine early next year and in 2021 will be moving in the right direction.
Take care and stay safe!
