Easter Weekend, Knitting, and Reading

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. It was so nice having a long weekend this weekend for Good Friday. It has felt like such a long time off work and it was much needed.  We were gifted these pretty white tulips from Liam's mom and they have been so cheerful and pretty to look at this weekend after they bloomed. I wasn't able to see my family this weekend because of the Covid-19 lockdown, so the flowers lifted my spirits.


I am also happy with how my African violet is blooming. There is now a flower, and as you can see there is a second one waiting to bloom. It is so nice to see it thriving with the light from the arrival of Spring.


 I knitted a lot of the baby blanket this weekend too.  I am now aiming to have it complete to gift to my sister next weekend. She is expecting her baby later in April, so it will be done just in time. The pattern that I used is Simple Lines Baby Blanket by Heather Tucker on Ravelry. 


The weather today was perfect for Easter Sunday and perfect to sit out on our terrace and enjoy the sunshine. I read more of The Midnight Library by Matt Haig while I was soaking up the sun.


I went out for a walk this afternoon and really enjoyed the warm weather. It was 13 degrees Celsius at the time and the sun made it feel even warmer.  I love this blue sky and seeing the buds on the trees and brings me hope for the Summer to come and make things better for us. There were a lot of other people walking today and they were all probably feeling the same way as me.



Thank you for stopping by and Happy Easter if you celebrate. I hope you had a long weekend if you also had Good Friday off. It is nice when these weekends come along for some much needed rest. I am back to work tomorrow and now I am feeling refreshed and ready to start the week.

Have a great day!
