Good morning! How are you doing?

Life has been quite nice around here.  First of all, thank you for the well wishes, they worked! I am gingerly knitting and have minimal wrist pain. Slow and steady wins the race, so they say. I am learning to have patience.

Yesterday, my husband and I went to the science museum early in the morning to see the titanic exhibit. The exhibit was nice and informative but the crowd was not nice. I am not a fan of crowds and I especially do not like being near people who are sneezing (and NOT covering their mouths....). Goodness!

We toured the exhibit and quickly left. The science museum is our least favorite because of this reason. I did not have the patience I clearly needed.

Once we were home, I snuggled with Frodo and did a few rows of knitting. I also enjoyed reading my book. I am on the 13th book (out of 15) of the Ruth Galloway mysteries by Elly Griffiths. I read number 14 first over a year ago and will probably read it again before the last book, just so I can refresh my memory. I'll be sad when I'm done with the series but then I will have room for new reading material!

Spring has been fickle here, with cold weather and s n o w. I am eager for light jacket-wearing weather which should be here by the weekend. I cannot believe we are almost done with Lent. 


  1. I’m sorry to hear that your outing to the science museum was not a good one. Sadly people today take the enjoyment out of doing things. We have the same thing here in Phoenix and totally get what you’re saying. Glad that you are on the mend and taking your knitting slowly is a good thing. Frodo looks quite happy … he’s such a sweet boy. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I was not a big fan of crowds before covid, but I'm definitely not now. Thankfully some time at home knitting, reading, and enjoying Frodo can cure the ills of being around too many people.

  3. It seems as if everyone is coughing/sneezing/sounding not fantastic! I am no fan of crowds either... I did not care for them pre-COVID, but now... absolutely they give me an anxious feeling. Enjoy dear Frodo, your knitting and reading! I saw that the forecast says more moderate (light jacket) days are coming!

  4. Good morning! I totally agree with you in regards to crowds. DON'T DO THEM! The rest of your day sounded totally awesome! :) Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  5. I'm another who is not fond of crowds. It's a shame that people act so irresponsibly. I hope your light jacket weather shows up and then heads East. It look like we are in for a rainy, chilly weekend here. Glad you are able to do some pain-free knitting!

  6. Sorry - anonymous above is me - Vera - forgot (again) to put in my name.

  7. The Titanic Exhibit sounds good, but I am with you on not enjoying being in crowds. Last summer when we were in Washington D.C., the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History was the same way, and I couldn't wait to get out of there, even though it was very interesting. Glad to hear that your wrist is doing better and that you could even get back to a little knitting. Your spring weather sounds like ours - we had a lovely spring-like week, but more rain and snow is in the forecast for this weekend. The pictures of your home always look so inviting! Have a good weekend. See you again soon!

  8. The Titanic exhibition sounds good. I know what you mean about the germs, I used to work in shops, some customers would cough and splutter all over the place, yuk! The Ruth Galloway series seems very popular, I've read a few. I'm taking part in 3 x read-a-longs at the moment, when I've finished those I may go back to that series, it'll be good to finish.

  9. I agree with you. I do not like crowds and don't understand people sneezing and coughing in public arenas. It seems to me, we should stay home if we aren't well.

  10. I'm not a fan of crowds anymore either. People have become so loud and so pushy (since Pandemic? since Trump???). They seem to have lost all sense of the fact that Covid is still here and you shouldn't be around sneezing and coughing without covering your nose and mouth. UGH!

    I'll tell you ... people have gone da*n FERAL I tell you.

  11. Your sock knitting all looks great. I hope going slow and not knitting too much at once helps your pain. I agree I'm not a fan of big crowds either. Have a good week.
