Hello, Friday! I am so glad you are here! It’s been a crazy week and I am more than ready for the weekend to be here! I have no major plans this weekend other than doing some catch up reading because I have a book due on Monday and there is a wait list for it, so I need to finish it!
Thinking About – The ongoing conversation in the Fiber Community about being more welcoming and inclusive of all, especially of those of the BIPOC community. These are painful, but necessary discussions – change is not easy and seeing things from the viewpoint of someone else is even harder. I am learning to be a better ally and learning much about myself in the process.
Grateful For – The incredibly warm week we have had! There were even more than a few moments of sunshine scattered between the rain showers! Temps in the 60’s are unusual for us in February, but it was much appreciated even if it is short-lived! Yes, winter returns today! But that taste of spring might just be enough to get me through the month!!
Inspired By – All you sketchers out there! Did you see The Sketchbook Project? What a fascinating idea! And, shame on me for not knowing about the Brooklyn Art Library! It “is home to over 41,000 sketchbooks from over 130 different countries.” Yes, this has made it to the “need to visit” list! No, I am not going to get a sketchbook, but if you participate – let me know! I will cheer you on!
Focused On – Getting my first shingles vaccine today with some trepidation. Great way to potentially sideline part of a weekend but I have been on the wait list for the vaccine for almost 8 months and it is something I really need to get done! I have had a couple of friends suffer from shingles outbreaks and I have no desire to be that miserable…ever!
That is all I have for today! Have an amazing weekend and I will see you back here next week!
