Monday Musings, Part VI

It’s been nearly a month since I mused on a Monday so I figured now was as good a time as any to check back in!

Cherry blossom season is here and D.C. is baking on theme. How beautiful is this donut from Astros?

I mentioned last week that I would be moving soon. If you want a sneak peek of where I’m going, make sure to follow my Instagram story in the first week of April. We’re heading up there to explore our new hood and make some friends so I’ll be sure to check out some sweet spots. Also, if you know how to make friends please send me tips. I’m only half kidding.

I’ve got my bi-weekly craft lunch on Thursday and I’m realizing I’ve made no progress since our last lunch. I’m not sure where the time has gone but it definitely hasn’t gone towards stitching. Do you craft at work with your coworkers? Maybe your coworkers aren’t as awesome as mine.

Chicken pot pie for the win. Best Sunday night ever.

One of the reasons I haven’t found the time to make progress on my needlepoint projects is likely because I’ve been crushing my reading list. I’m on the last few chapters of The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit and I’m absolutely loving it! It takes place in Maine and I have huge respect for someone who lived outdoors through two decades worth of Maine winters. The main character (keep in mind this is a true story) survives solely on eating food he steals from cabins near his campsite, which I find to be the saddest part. He never gets to choose what he eats and is at the mercy of what the locals stock their fridges with. He also never gets to cook in a well stocked kitchen or enjoy the process of experimenting with flavors, something I could never imagine living without.

Warm weather means more mid-day frozen treats.

April’s only a few days away and while today seems to have cooled down again (just in time for my first round of golf of the season), the weather forecast promises that it’s finally going to start feeling like spring in D.C. this week. This of course means that I’ve got frozen treats on my mind all the time. Time to start cranking them out I suppose!
