April Wrap-Up

Life is interesting in these parts. Means I don’t always have time to get to things I would like to, but at least I’m never bored. The kids were on break last week, and we took a couple of days in New York to see friends and get a break from routine. We visited the aquarium and Central Park, and did a little shopping. The botanical garden is amazing! The photos are in no particular order.

Writing – Got a half-hearted start on Camp NaNo and immediately stalled out again. I think I have figured out why this plot isn’t working, so now I get to start over again. Writing is like that.

Knitting – I am close to done with the current project (which is going to be a gift, so no pictures yet). Not quite sure what will be next in the queue, but there will definitely be something.

Reading – I basically abandoned my goals for the month in favor of continuing to read about Welsh monks. I am up through #7 in the Cadfael series. On one of our spring break outings we went to a lovely bookstore in Newburyport, so now my TBR pile has new additions.

My creative project for the month was photography. While I would love to learn more about it and should continue doing so, I confirmed that I default to using my phone even when I have my other camera with me, so it would be silly to buy anything better at this point.

The garden is prepped, but it’s raining today, so plant shopping will have to wait another week. In the driveway the peas and Swiss chard are popping up.

We’re going to be moving this summer, so things might get even more sporadic for a little while as we figure out a plan for that. At least the weather should be nice. Onward into May!
