This is my spring working spot, on our porch. Geronimo is "helping", and you can see Mirando watching (well, listening and smelling) the world going by. In a couple of months, it will be too humid and mosquitoe-y to work out here except first thing in the morning, so I'm very much enjoying it right now.
Knitting: More on Heavenly Stole, which is starting to actually look stole-length. It's going to be lovely, but I can't wait to be done with it. The SKC knitalong end date was clarified as the end of May, which gives me tons of time to finish Orangina. My very first sweater took a month of knitting in every spare moment; it's hard to believe I've gotten to the point where two sweaters in two months is no big thing (of course, they are both short- or no-sleeved). One of the best things about knitting is the feeling that I'm constantly improving and mastering new skills.
Writing: Okay, still at 21K. But I've reworked the first scene in chapter five...again. I'm not great at this writing romance stuff (and I'm not even talking sexy stuff, which I don't think I could write without dying of laughter, just two people sitting in a restaurant with mild flirting). I think it's getting better.
Reading: Still on my fluffy novel.
Cooking: String Bean, I usually love making bread! I have no idea what happened this time. I've never tried making Challah before, but sounds like a good project for me :)
