Much of this month was spent in getting ready for vacation, and then a further chunk was spent actually on vacation for the first time in a very long while. All in all, it felt a little weird.
Knitting: I finished the cowl, and made progress on the shawl, although there’s still quite a ways to go.
Books: Only three finished this month, but since one of them was Middlemarch, I am not going to castigate myself. I really enjoyed it. I also read Solnit’s Encyclopedia of Trouble and Spaciousness, an interesting collection although something of a downer–more trouble than space–and Smiley’s Perestroika in Paris for book club, which was delightful confection and generally agreed to be a balm in a world determined to grind us.
Writing: We have a cover for The Prometheus Skein, and unless something goes dreadfully wrong, it should be available in early June. The Hasty Visitor’s Guide will follow later in the summer. Getting closer!
Activity: We went to Washington, DC, for spring break, and had a great time. Saw some museums, the zoo, and a few monuments, and did a ton of walking.
Time to focus once more on getting things finished, and spend more time outside!
