Sunday Lately | February 19th

Here is what I've been enjoying, hoping, forgiving, delving, and relying on this week!

Enjoying | A full week of the kids being in school without sickness! *knock on wood*

Hoping | I am really hoping that this rather gnarly bruise on my arm will begin looking way less gnarly soon. On Monday, I decided I was going to shoot my daughter's bow. Obviously, I should have waited and done it while she was at home because I did not hold my arm correctly. The bowstring snapped the side of my arm a couple of times. Ok, ok... several times. I noticed because it hurt, but didn't really see it until about 30 minutes afterward when I took off my long sleeve shirt. It was HORRIBLE. I have been wearing long sleeves all week because I was afraid for people to see it.

Forgiving | Forgiving my son for growing up on me. I had to approve his class choices for his senior year of high school. I told myself I wouldn't cry, but then I cried anyway.

Delving | Into working again. I actually filled out and turned in an application for the first time in about 17 years. It felt strange. The local grocery store is hiring a part-time day shift cashier so I thought I'd give it a chance.

Relying | On the IRS to get my refund to me in a timely fashion. I may be waiting a while.

Watching | My first hyperlapse video.

Works in Progress | I haven't made much progress this week on anything. Every time the weekend rolls around, I realize I didn't do half as much knitting as I said I would do.

One Skillet Meal

I am all about a meal that is simple and uses the least amount of dishes. I am also a big fan of finding new recipes on Pinterest. Of all the things the internet is good for, sharing food and experiences with those recipes is high on my list!

Whoa. This week FLEW right past me! I'm pretty sure I lost it somewhere between a tissue and a nap.


Imbolc is a celebration of the coming Spring. We are halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Almost there! For the Northern hemisphere, this is celebrated on February 1st/2nd.
