I’m up to Chapter 22 in the Joan Didion biography I’m reading. That’s over half-way through.
I’m reading at least one chapter each day, usually waking up at 5-ish, putting on some coffee and then reading in bed until 6 or so. (I am taking my time and looking up things, people and places mentioned, as I go!)
It’s a pretty great part of the day. The birds are still asleep, as are the people at my house, so it’s lovely and quiet to begin with. Then slowly the neighbourhood starts waking up and things begin to hum gently.
In the evenings, I’ve been working on my mini-granny square blanket, off and on. It’s slowly gaining momentum and I love the way the bright colours pop against the black border.
I am not sure how big I will make it… it’s sort of deciding its own fate, in a weird way. The more I do, the nicer it looks, the more it wants to grow..! And so it goes.
I’ve also been:
Watching Gossip Girl. I finally finished all six seasons and LOVED it.
Watching The Age of Adaline. I really liked it! Even though Blake Lively talks like The XX sing.
Watching the movie with Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette. SOB.
Watching A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix… So good! Neil Patrick Harris is amazing and horrid!
Working on my eCourse about nicer times, creativity and project/idea hatching (it starts later this week! there are still spots left!)
Op-shopping with Ari.
Market shopping with Ari.
Re-launching Blog With Pip after lots of email requests and a change of heart.
Making tuna salad – with lots of red onion, tomato, cucumber, fresh herbs, grinds of pepper, Kewpie mayo and Sriracha.
Eeep. I have to run, because I am starting work in five minutes! What have you been up to? I will be back with more soon!
