Linking up with Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday.

Knitting.

The second BSJ is slowly coming along. Just like the first one, if I didn’t have to keep unraveling, it would be done by now. This one is DK yarn on US#6 needles, so it will be more like an 18-24 month size. The first one, of fingering weight yarn and knit on US#3s, was a 0-6 month size.

While I was taking the photo above, the hummingbirds were busy on our feeders. Even the loons got into the act. Turn up the sound and enjoy!

Reading.

Wild Game: My Mother, Her Lover, and Me  by Adrienne Brodeur. I started this, then had to put it down to read the book for my book group so I can pass it on. Stay tuned...

book dog medicinex

Dog Medicine: How My Dog Saved Me from Myself  by Julie Barton. The author suffered from depression since childhood, but it was not diagnosed until she had a breakdown in the year after college. Getting a puppy, therapy, and antidepressants saved her. I could identify with her, having had a depressive personality myself that eventually responded well to antidepressants. Modern psychopharmacology is literally a life-saver. 4✭

A Beautiful Poison by Lydia Kang. This is the book club book. Two people have said it was really good; I am withholding judgement. The writing is not top-drawer, but perhaps the plot will save it. Once again, stay tuned...

Still listening to this. Maybe when I finish all the financial reports due by next Wednesday, I will take my knitting and this audiobook out onto the deck to enjoy the summer.

 

 

 

Watching.

Ima gonna add a category here because we are binge-watching stuff.

We watched the first three seasons of Outlander on Netflix, got season four from the library, and bought season five on eBay. The series kept us entertained in the evenings since sometime in early May, which I find to be an amazing blessing during these times. Highly recommend, just know that there are some rather graphic sex scenes. 5✭

book daredevil

Daredevil series on Netflix. I had added this sometime in the past to my want-to-watch list. In the days after we finished Outlander I cued it up and started watching. Aside from the spectacularly unrealistic and brutal fight scenes, it is another enjoyable, many-nights entertainment. Smokey watches it sometimes with me, but he is not hooked. 3✭

And now some more outdoor enjoyment.

    Your home on the lake is lovely. That is the kind of place that people rent for vacations and you get to live there all the time? How lucky you are! Is your lake a fishing lake or a sandy beach lake (or both?) I will have to check out “Outlander” as I just finished “Madam Secretary”…
    Thanks!

  2. One of my favorite things about visiting my Canadian penpal when I was younger was the different wildlife. That’s where I first got introduced to loons. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

    Loons never pass up a chance to sing!

    Beautiful outdoor videos. I love to hear the loons. Those BSJ’s can be challenging. I finally had to quit thinking about the pattern and just knit.
