Happy Monday, everyone! I wish I had more to write about over the weekend, but there was not much happening that was very exciting. Saturday I worked on cleaning and reorganizing my craft area and then we went to Mass. Even though it is long, I always enjoy the Palm Sunday service.
Yesterday I drove up to meet my folks in the Berkshires — Laura is spending a few days with them, as it is spring break week here and Drew and I both have work. She may as well get spoiled by grandparents, right? After dropping her off I got home, made lunch, and Drew and I watched a few episodes of History of the World Part II on Hulu. Then I went and grabbed a few groceries, brought home dinner, and that was about it!
And here we are… Monday again
! Today I decided to link up with Sandra

As I look outside my window:::
I see some folks walking their dogs in the field
Right now I am:::
Counting down until the end of the day, listening to a patron talk about an author she enjoys
Thinking and pondering:::
Holding good thoughts for our friend and town supervisor who underwent surgery today for a benign (thankfully!) brain tumor. Praying for a full recovery. I know it will be a long road ahead.
On my bedside table:::
Water cup, thyroid pills, basket of random odds & ends
On my tv this week:::
History of the World, Part II
The windchimes outside the door.

What I am creating:::
Still working on Laura’s bag. I need to take an inventory of all my crochet WIPs and finish them before starting new projects.
My simple pleasure:::
Inhaling the smell of spring! It’s like a combination of dirt and grass and rain… I can’t really explain it, but if you know you know.
Looking around the house:::
Laundry needs to be put away, floors could use a good mopping, and I need to finish putting away some odds and ends from the grocery store.
From the camera:::
Last Wednesday night Drew and I used a gift certificate to a favorite local restaurant so we could take advantage of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. I got the most delicious beef short rib with mashed potatoes and spinach; he got salmon with roast potatoes, squash & kale. It was a delight to enjoy a mid-week date night!
Hoping it’s feeling like Spring where you are!
