Happy Sunday. It is a nice three day weekend as we celebrate Memorial Day here in the US. That picture above is of my all time favorite paintings, by Vincent van Gogh, “The Starry Night“. I went into NYC yesterday to see it at the MOMA. I went in specifically to see Van Gogh and I definitely enjoyed my trip to the museum. It was my first time going to this one because whenever I go into the city for a museum trip, I always go to the Met, that is my absolute favorite. There was a little crowd gathered around The Starry Night but my son and I managed to take a selfie with it anyway…lol. I will be printing that one out and hanging it in my cubicle at work. 🙂

Happy Sunday. Today is my son’s birthday so it is one of my favorite days of the year. 🙂 I tend to get misty eyed when my kid’s birthday’s roll around. It feels like time is passing by so quickly.

Well, after a week of unseasonably hot weather, it has finally cooled off a little bit. I love the summer though so I can’t complain. I took the pic above at the gardens near us, I enjoy strolling through there, it is very peaceful and picturesque. There are benches here and there but people mostly throw a blanket down and just lay out.

The weather has been nice for walking my dogs also. They get so excited when I get home from work, I can barely put my things away because they are whining to go out. It seems like they have me well-trained lol.

Good morning everyone 🙂 I hope you’re all doing well. I’ve been trying to play catch up in blog land this weekend. I find that sitting at the computer all day at work, 40 hours a week, leaves me not wanting to get onto my computer at home. *note to self invest in a laptop*

On a bookish note, I have been reading and crocheting when I’m home, mostly crocheting. I am in the middle of two books at the moment, both non-fiction and both enjoyable.

Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison by Piper Kerman and Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach. I have to say Gulp is really very good, I hope to have the reviews up in a few weeks once I am finished reading. Who knew there was so much to discuss when it comes to digestion?

Oh my gosh, I cannot believe that December is flying by so quickly and that Christmas is right around the corner. This is always a busy time of year and I haven’t gotten in as much reading time as I would have liked to, but that’s ok. Once the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over hopefully I can get more time to read.

Lately, I feel like after a busy day I can’t sit and focus on reading. I tend to gravitate towards crocheting instead, I think it’s because my hands are moving. Does that make sense? With crochet, depending on the project, I usually don’t have to focus too much and I can just do it while watching tv.

Happy Sunday everyone. It is hard to believe that December is around the corner. I hope all of you who celebrate had a Happy Thanksgiving this past week. I had a lovely one here with my family and I count my blessings every day for them.
This weekend was spent mainly relaxing and watching the Gilmore Girls revival while crocheting. It was nice seeing the cast back together again and these new episodes were fun to watch. Nostalgic.
