New (Hopefully Temporary) Normal

Well, it is Day # ? of the new normal, our socially-distanced lifestyle.  This is something I never thought I would ever experience---having the governor/federal government tell us that we should not leave our homes (unless for an emergency or supplies).  It is something that I am definitely not getting used to.  I long for the day when I can go back to work and see my coworkers again in-person (and not over Zoom). 

Working from home, for me at least, is something that I thought I would enjoy more than I actually do.  I can't wait for things to get back to normal or mostly normal.  I feel for everyone who has been affected by this horrible virus and pray that it ends soon.

How I've been filling my non-working hours and weekends: 

  • Reading ALL THE BOOKS--even some that I have already read and loved many times.
  • Putting puzzles together
  • Watching some TV (re-watching the early seasons of Grey's Anatomy currently)
  • Taking walks and exploring some out-of-the-way parks on the weekends
Projects I'm currently working on include:

  • Zigzagular Socks (Madelinetosh Twist Light in ESK exclusive Wonka Wash)
  • Continuing to work on my Cremoso Shawl (Dream in Color Smooshy in ESK exclusive Japan)
  • Cable Sampler Scarf (Cascade 220 Superwash in Doeskin Heather)
  • Gracie Blanket (I Love This Yarn--magenta)
  • Cadence Socks (Cornbread & Honey Light Sock in Gloomy Sky Gradient)
Right before the social distancing began, I took a learn-to-crochet class at Around the Table Yarns in Shaker Heights, Ohio.  I came away with knowing how to single crochet and am now working on a facecloth.  I have the ultimate goal of making an afghan and am so excited to learn more stitches.
