It's been a chilly April so far - we had snow over the weekend, and yesterday the powers-that-be cancelled the Cleveland Indians
(baseball) Opening Day.Windchill of 18 degrees and snow/rain. Not that I was planning on going to the game. Baseball isn't my favorite sport to view (same with basketball), though if I have to watch any baseball, I prefer minor league, or folks at a pick-up game.Television:
Over the weekend, there are so many soccer and hockey games on television, esp. now that we have access to NBC Sports Network. By Saturday evening, after watching a ton of soccer, we started watching a hockey game, and I was fed up with myself. See, usually I knit while watching TV but I'm in between knitting ideas, and I had to do something, so I started making some very simple watercolor greeting cards, using masking tape, round stickers, and micron pen. I felt better about myself.
I enjoy sending and receiving cards in the mail, so I'll continue to play around with this idea.
Oh, and regarding television shows - I'm still not happy with the season finale of The Walking Dead
- I am this
close to being done with it, but I have to say I'm a bit interested in The Kingdom. Hinterland
season 2 is on Netflix, so we'll be watching that at some point. Happy about Grantchester
(season 2) and another season of Call the Midwife
. And I'm still enjoying some sitcoms.Pottery:
I'm teaching some at-risk high school students on Tuesday afternoons for six weeks, and starting Wednesday night I have a new four week hand-building class.
I splurged on a new book - 500 Cups
! I was able to find it for $10.00. I really want 500 Bowls
, but cannot find that one cheap (yet).
|My favorite mug at the moment.|
Just finished a Mrs. Pollifax - enjoying these cozy mysteries these days. Still reading The Art of Eating
- I started it in August of last year. I'm on page 687 and I'm only now warming up to the author.Garden:
I'm using the weather and other (stressful) things as excuses, but truly, I should have started seeds weeks ago. Maybe this weekend.Politics:
Don't even get me started.
