Happy Sunday, friends! I hope you all are doing well!
I had a good week. It was a very quiet week at work, the quietest since…I can’t even remember. I am grateful for it. Yesterday we decided to go for a little hike in a nearby park, since I desperately needed a change of pace from our little neighborhood trail. It was so pretty! It was fairly isolated too, so we didn’t have to stress too much about social distancing.
I don’t know what’s going to happen in the near future…our stay at home order ends on May 1, though I suspect it will be extended a bit. There’s a lot of uncertainty right now, but it felt so good to walk in the woods, talk about our future plans, and have a bit of normalcy. It was just what I needed for my mental health.
Yesterday was Apollo’s birthday! He’s now eight years old. I can’t believe my baby puppy is already eight. He loved his birthday hike, and crashed as soon as we got home. In honor of Apollo’s birthday, I wanted to share some of my favorite puppy pictures. I’m happy to report that he has retained his mischievous streak, even after all these years.
And this weekend, I finally finished my Earl Grey wrap! Ta daaaa!
I finished the crochet work last weekend, but didn’t want to expend the energy on the tassels until yesterday. They were actually pretty quick and easy to make!
I am really, really happy with how this wrap turned out! I love Two of Wands – her pieces are so stylish, and I am glad I was finally able to make one of her patterns.
WARNING – QUARANTINE HAIR AHEAD.
As I was taking these photos, a farmer was irrigating the fields behind me and I felt very self-conscious. Also, there was a big ass bumblebee zooming about that made me nervous.

Time to serve up some quarantine lewks:
Ok, I have posted enough embarrassing pictures of myself. ANYWAY. If you like to crochet, I highly recommend this pattern! Super, super easy, and you can use any self-striping yarn in your stash for this make.
I hope you all have a great week!
