Ten on Tuesday: Foot f*tish
Happy Birthday Mom

Right now...

Watching: We've begun rewatching Seasons 1 & 2 of House Of Cards in preparation for the release of Season 3 on Feb. 27th.

Reading: Tropic of Cancer... and I cannot. I need a little more organization.

I also need a good beach read.

Suggestions welcome!!

An early start to vacation knitting -- Sophie's Rose by Michelle Bernstein (of NBC Nightly News fame!). A KAL starts Monday but I want to have a start before leaving. #knittersofinstagram #sophiesroseshawl @pdxknitterati

Knitting: Sophie's Rose Shawlette by Michele Bernstein. (You must read/watch her story about new shoes, Harry Smith, PDX, and the NBC Nightly News!) Anyway, this is part of the Hugs & Kisses KAL in the PDXKnitterati Ravelry Group; the official KAL start date is Feb. 1st. I'm getting a head start, as it's vacation knitting and I don't want to have to think too hard. My MC yarn may be too busy...



Drinking: Cerveza! Testing, 1-2-3. Just getting myself acclimated...

Wearing: Nothing that will be packed in my suitcase.

Organizing KonMari-ing: Has taken a back seat at the moment, but I'll be refreshed and ready upon our return from Mexico. It's the annual-ish purge but so different this time -- with much more oomph and, I believe, results that will last. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo is changing my life. Yep.

Celebrating: My last workday for a little while.

Listening to: Dr. Blair's Spanish in No Time. I'm learning listening to Spanish in my car!

Itching to: GO!!!

Looking forward to: Sunday morning and everything vacation.

Needing to: Finish packing.

Delighted by: The weather forecast. Also full moon!

Laurie R. King....The Beekeeper's Apprentice....lovely,fun book...well written.


Beach read: Station Eleven. Have a great, Great, GREAT time, Vicki! XO


Outlander was my last beach read. I hesitate to recommend something! except to have a BALL!! look forward to reading and hearing about it when you're back!


Have fun! We are on our last night of a vacation to FL...trying to make it last by a night out with beer and mojitos and guitar music. Nothing like sitting outside in January.


Beach read: One Plus One by Jojo Moyes. Light but entertaining. Also, This is Where I Leave You. Very funny. Have a blast!


You are going to have such a fabulous time. And a full moon, too!!! I can't help but recommend something for you to read, although there are several excellent suggestions already. The Cuckoo's Calling is an entertaining mystery written under the pseudonym, Robert Galbraith. Eat, drink, laugh, dance walk in that moonlight and have a marvelous time!


I second Margene's recommendation for The Cuckoo's Calling, along with the second book in the series, The Silkworm. Wishing you a really wonderful time!


Have a wonderful time Vicki! I'm going to sip one for ya tonight!
