I Moved! Knitting and Reading Updates

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. I have now moved to the condo-townhouse! It has been such a busy week packing up at our previous apartment and then moving everything over here. We got movers on Monday this week, and then had some more work to do afterwards. We were back and forth for the week. Today I had time to read and unpack at our new home and yesterday we did as well. I did not get much knitting and reading done during this time unfortunately, but I did finish a book one morning that I had started reading in the Summer.

Below is a photo of some bins from our previous apartment all stacked up and ready to go. We had so many of these bins all packed up and they were so helpful to store all of our things to move. We got these ones from Home Depot and got a lot from my parents as well.



The weekend before the movers came to move our furniture and things, we painted out living room and dining room. It took a couple of days and my dad came by to help Liam and I paint. We wanted to go from yellow to gray. We love the change. We chose the color "chic gray" from Behr we bought at Home Depot.

After

Before the move, I was working on knitting the Amelia Slouch beanie pattern found on Ravelry by Elisa McLaughlin. I took the photo below about a week ago before this hectic week of moving. I had made a bit more progress on it. I will be starting to decrease it this week so I can finish it.  I also got The Five Minute Journal by Intelligent Change and have been using it daily ever since. It is so good for jotting down every morning what I am grateful for and what I hope to accomplish each day then reflecting on the day in the evening before bed. This practice has been so helpful during the move because each day I can focus on what I really wanted to get done.



I finished reading Normal People by Sally Rooney a couple of days ago when I got the hold back on Overdrive. I started reading the book Wow, No Thank You by Samantha Irby. I can already tell it will be so funny to read and something different for me to enjoy. It is nice to read something funny and light that is relatable and a different style than I normally read. Today I started reading the book Atomic Habits by James Clear. I have heard it is such a good book, so I am excited to read more.
