This week, I read Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver (review up tomorrow). I posted my finished Buttercup sweater and my usual Booking Through Thursday post.
Today, I plan on reading Stephen Colbert’s America Again. I went with my family to get some maple syrup and have a nice brunch. I have an alumni meeting this afternoon, but I hope to come home and do some reading.
I didn’t post last weekend as I was tired and recovering from my birthday drinks . Also, I haven’t been reading very much lately. I have been out and about everyday trying to be more social. It does not always work, but it’s been interesting as I am an introvert by nature. I am glad Easter weekend is coming up because I plan on reading Walden and other books in my large TBR pile.
This week, I made a filing system in my home office, and I am still not completely done spring cleaning. I’m rather pleased with my organisation and productivity this week.
Physical activity wise, I go to yoga at least once every other week and I am trying to run at least 1-2x a week now that the pavement is relatively snow free. I ran 6km yesterday, and I’m a bit knackered from it and my very active social week. Knitting and fiddle are on the back burner now that I am working out more. I am hoping to try rock climbing soon too.
Spring is not really here, but it’s not below -10 anymore and there is not so much snow so small victories.
Life is good, but busy as I am exploring new things. I just need to make sure I read at least one book a week until my schedule is more fixed and balanced.
How is everyone’s March?
I hope you enjoyed Flight Behavior. I thought it was terrific!
Love your Buttercup sweater. I have yet to finish a sweater–I’m more of a hat and scarf gal.
Hi Ali! I did enjoy Flight Behavior as I am a Kingsolver fan in general. I’ve knit over a dozen sweaters and it is really rewarding. I hope you get to make one someday soon. Have a good week!
Walden was one of those books I read as a freshman in college – and didn’t really like. Perhaps I’d feel differently about it now, but I’m not particularly tempted to try. 🙂 Good luck! Hopefully you enjoy it much more than 18-year-old-me. 🙂

Hi Rachel! It’s not the most engaging read in the world which is why I haven’t read much of it. I like it, but it requires more concentration rather than a read on the go. Have a good week!
My March is still cold and snow filled 🙁 But I suppose it is a great excuse to stay indoors and read more books 🙂
Poor Jessica! I’m use to long and cold winters, so it’s old hat for me. Bundle up and get ready for spring patiently. Have a good week!
