A new month starts today, and since it is a Wednesday, it means we get to link up for Yarn Along on the first day of the month! Admittedly, I haven't been doing nearly as much knitting recently as I had been. Still, I did do a little, and I love seeing what everyone else is working on.
I almost started this post with "I can't believe it's already June, and halfway through at that!" But more than that, I can't believe that I am becoming one of those people who "can't believe!" that it is whatever time of year it is! That said, this half way check-in did sort of sneak up...

Also, I have made large strides in reading books that I own but had not yet read, especially those on my 2020 Read or Donate shelf (which you can read an introduction to here). So, where do I turn from here?
April 2020 has been a mess, but we made it! Today's the day for seeing how we did with this month's goals, and outlining next month's. Here is my April wrap-up; May's TBR list and goals will be posted soon, probably on Monday (May 4)!
This is just a short post because I have something exciting to share! My dear echinacea plant (mentioned in my first Garden Chronicles post because it had recently grown a startling amount), has finally opened one of its buds! This is the second spring I have had this plant, and last year it never put... Continue Reading →
