I have to admit, this whole self-care thing has been a bit of a struggle this month, but one thing that I seem to be doing better at is knitting!
I have been in such a knitting funk for so long, there was never any time, it seemed, where I could knit more than two rows at once. But, the stars have been aligning at least a couple times a week, and I have had some dedicated time to do my knitting. It has been really nice to have the needles going again, especially since I am knitting something for myself, also something that doesn’t happen often!
Even with more time to knit, the speed of my actual knitting has not increased, so it doesn’t appear that I have made much progress in the past week on this runner, but I am still enjoying the pattern, and I think it is turning out really nicely.
As far as reading goes, last week I got my second official POPSUGAR Must Have subscription box. The POPSUGAR box is a monthly subscription that contains 5-7 lifestyle geared items, and it is a real treat for me. This month, Mindy Kaling’s new book Why Not Me? It is a collection of short stories, so perfect for when I don’t have a huge amount of time to sit and read a novel. I have heard several people say that her audio books are really great to listen to, and so I think I might see if I can get it on audio.

What are you working on this week?
