I never thought I'd call a trip to the dentist a 'good thing' but I took their recommendation to do no hard physical activity for a couple of days to heart. I sat, re-binge watched True Blood and knit bead after bead onto my Jeweled Cowl until I ran low on yarn.
I only knit 46 rows of beads instead of the 51 stated in the pattern. I'm happy with the depth of the cowl though so .... But I'm not exactly happy with the circumference of it. It needed to be an inch or two longer. In order to twist it around my neck twice, I have to remove my eye glasses and it's like wearing a uncomfortably tight turtle neck. At this point, I'm not sure if I'll keep it and wear it long or find some skinny, small headed person to give it to.
Another good thing - we had some very warm, dry days last week and I was finally able to take a walk around the neighborhood. I walked down to the pond and am happy to report that all the ice had melted and there were even mosquitoes buzzing around the water's edge. Okay, I'm not so happy about the mosquitoes but they are a sign of spring. I'm also happy I got the walk in when I did. It felt 'tornado-y' and the weather quickly tanked not long after returning home.
Another sign of spring - our lone daffodil has sprouted leaves.
As for my book progress.... Well, I obviously spent more time binge watching True Blood than reading. I'm still reading Disturb Not the Dream and I started reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Yeah, I'm a little slow on that one. I'm probably the last person on the planet to read it.
