I finished reading the novel, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng and it was good. She touched upon some difficult topics with elegance. I miss the characters and felt sad when the book was over. That's a sign of great story. Ah well, onto some new books. I've read all of the Agatha Christie books back when I was pregnant with my daughter and in a new to me town with nary a friend. It was just me and Agatha getting me through those lonely days. I'm never lonely when I'm with a book.
Anyways my daughter is 29 years old and I'm pretty sure I will not remember any of the stories.
I spent time painting each afternoon, squelching the negative thoughts as best as I could. Oh I swear I am thinking 'well this is a hot mess' each and every single time. But then I flip through my book and see the tiny progress and that makes me happy.
You know I wasn't an expert knitter on day one! There are many many many hours, days, weeks, years and yes, DECADES into honing my skills.
I am a firm believer that you can do anything you set your mind to doing.
My husband was away presenting a workshop and I had most of my Saturday to myself. I read, knitted, painted, puzzled, ate left overs and watching many episodes of Anne with an E. I'd say my day was fantastic.
Today my husband and I went out to lunch to celebrate Father's Day and then did a bit of shopping. I found two summer dresses that look okay - I'm excited to wear them to church or where ever.
How was your weekend?
