Or Hello from Pittsburgh in January!
In less than 24 hours we went from temps in the 70’s. Seriously, it was 72 here on Friday and we got over two inches of rain which then changed over to snow with temps in the teens on Saturday. My back yard is now a snow-covered ice rink! All that standing water from all that rain froze solid overnight.
Weekend bonus? All that cold weather meant that Treysta got lots of wear time! And, while I did not make my “goal” and start on sleeves on my Stopover, the body is almost done. And with this cold weather hanging around here for much of the week I have plenty of incentive to keep knitting and get those sleeves done pronto!
I spent some time this weekend playing with the Ravelry Project Challenge, which I think pairs well with my #MakeNine2018 goals. I have set a goal of 18 projects which is very wishful thinking! But, as in all things: if you don’t set goals – you achieve nothing! Like my Goodreads challenges, I never imagined I could do it until I did!
I also did some reading this weekend in a Net Galley book, but I keep having to go back to re-read parts because I feel like I am missing something. I am not too far in, so I hope this will sort itself out shortly!
On tap for today? Line up a bunch of Instant Pot recipes to make meal planning easier this week. (and to perhaps avoid that dreaded question of “what’s for dinner”)
I hope your Monday is warm and easy!
It was definitely a good weekend for staying inside. I hardly left the house (I went grocery shopping yesterday and that was about it), and frankly I don’t care! It’s toasty inside and I’ve gotten a lot of crafting done.
We had that same kind of weather-plunge, so . . . fun! And while yesterday I got to break out the sunglasses (for like the first time all winter), today it’s snowing again. Ah, winter! Gotta love it! XO
The weather has been… something else. I love my IP, but really need to get more into the habit! Do you have some recipes that you love? This is one that a friend shared on FB that we LOVED: https://www.kitchentreaty.com/instant-pot-vegan-golden-lentil-spinach-soup/
I think the deep freeze here will call for me digging out my Stopover! I’ve had enough of the ice haven’t you?!?
We had the same giant temp. drop here, but I’m glad there was some rain and not all snow and ice. What’s for dinner tonight? Leftovers, and I’m glad I don’t have to make anything!
I am very jealous that you saw 70s WOW. We hit 50s before our cold weather hit and it is snowy and really. honestly, so lovely. So glad you pointed out the Ravelry project challenge. I missed it. Thanks
It’s been 50 here all week, sunny skies. We’re having a no winter winter. I hear we might have a storm this weekend, but we’ll see. Love the colors of your stopover!
While I’m definitely not doing a #makenine thing the idea of a knitting challenge (similar to a GoodReads challenge) appeals to me. Hmmmmm.
oh I LOVE the colors you’re using for Stopover – and glad you’re joining in the Ravelry challenge! We’ll cheer each other on 🙂
Rain followed by a freeze is the WORST! It doesn’t happen here very often, but when it does it sucks.
