🧶 Made some progress on the blanket I am knitting to donate (update post here), although at this point I do not think I am going to finish in time for the official blanket drive.

🎹 I got a (digital) piano!

⛸ My favorite American figure skater performed to one of my favorite piano pieces and won the national title (and a spot on the Olympic team).

My other favorite programs from this year’s national championships include Ilia Malinin’s free skate, Gracie Gold’s short program, and Karen Chen’s free skate.

📑 Started another semester of grad school. I discussed the classes I am taking in this post.

Although there is not as much to report this time, I’m thankful for this in-between month. It’s been a mostly decent time of orienting for the new year. COVID has unfortunately had more of an impact on my job this month than in recent months, but we’re keeping on as best we can.

What were the highlights of January for you?

Until the next chapter,

  1. The skating was just so fun! 🙂 I read the most joyful book on FaceTime with my grands yesterday and we laughed and had so much fun. It might be my best read all month! (Lost Words by Robert MacFarlane)
