A lot of look

The weekend at the coast was much needed. There's a lot of 'life' coming up soon so it is great to have quiet and calm and ocean around us.


This is at the point where there are so, so many stitches on the needle.

And honestly I'm not even halfway done with it. 

IT is hard to see all the individual patterns but they're there.

I read "You think it, I'll say it" by Curtis Sittenfeld in one rainy afternoon. I think I mentioned I"m not really into short stories but these are all absolutely charming and wonderful.

I am now reading "Yes Please" by Amy Poehler and I just kind of want to be Amy Poehler's friend.

We watched the Pilot of "Shakespeare and Hathaway" and are unsure whether we will continue watching this. Do you watch it? Is it good?

We also watched three episodes of 'Forever' which is an Amazon original and it was slow and not funny. Which is a surprise given that it has Fred Armisen in it. And Maya Rudolph. Did you know Fred Armisen was married to Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss)? And Maya Rudolph is Minnie Riperton's daughter (I knew she was someone famous' daughter). At the end of "Loving You is Easy 'Cause You're Beautiful" she sings "Maya" a lot.


More Zen

Did someone ask for bird pictures?

Two birds!

That moth is really cool. Im glad you know that work ahead may get crazy, and you can try to pace yourself. I hope you will be at your lovely seaside place again soon. I saw a Junco at the water bath today surrounded by our 7 fresh inches of snow. I told him he could leave now, with the snow. Thankfully, the snow has almost completely melted today!
