Reading: I read a lot more than usual in 2016. Keeping up with reviews over at my book blog has been a challenge. Not that I review all of the books I read, but I make every effort to review books from publishers so I will keep getting free books! Most are reviewed over at A Garden Carried in the Pocket, but some of my favorites are scheduled for later in the year. When I receive AR copies from publishers, I schedule books closer to publication dates and there are 17 reviews still scheduled to post in 2017.
Studio Shirt: I continue making new in-roads on the shirt. Especially, when I need peaceful meditation, I add more embroidery and more blocks. It doesn't matter that these additions aren't planned or careful or neat, they are more like ad libs--just stitching to keep my hands busy. It is a work in progress since 2014, adding a little at a time. New additions since September:
At 8:00 this morning, the temperature was 19 degrees. Almost unheard of in Louisiana and last week was like Spring! Weather app shows us back in the 70's next week.
Hope all of you in colder states are surviving the arctic freeze and snow!
