I finished my index and turned it in midweek. I have a week before the next one arrives, which I would like to spend on creative pursuits as much as possible. I did some spinning on Thursday and Friday, and I’ve been knitting in spare moments since Monday. I also got out for a walk on Friday, while it was sunny and relatively warm (around 52 F.) On Saturday, I cut Mr. Bookwyrm’s hair—my third time cutting it, but the first time in 4 months. It came out pretty well.
We are expecting some wet snow today, anything between a light coating and 5 inches. Sounds like a good day to stay in, read, spin, knit, and pretend to watch the Super Bowl.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I devoured The Lady Has a Past (Amanda Quick; ARC) in one night; I couldn’t resist starting it almost as soon I was approved for it. I read The Tea Dragon Society by Kay (Katie) O’Neill; it’s a short and charming graphic novel I have wanted to read for over a year, and finally bought because the library didn’t have a copy. I reread The Collector (Nora Roberts) just because I was in the mood, and started Tribute for the same reason.
This week, I may start Beach Read by Emily Henry. It’s one of the COYER Book Club books for February, and it also fits the current romance-themed COYER readathon. I also need to finish Wild Rain by Beverly Jenkins. My buddy reader, Sophia Rose of the Delighted Reader blog, already finished it and really liked it.
Listening to: I started listening to The Library at the End of the World by Felicity Hayes-McCoy. So far, I’m on the fence about whether to keep listening, switch to the ebook, or let it go.
Watching: We watched The Sound of Music in tribute to Christopher Plummer, whose death was announced on Friday. Then we watched a documentary about the making of the movie, or rather, Julie Andrews’s favorite memories of it (although plenty of other people were interviewed, too.)
Playing: Carcassonne, Merge Magic, DragonVale, Pokemon Go, the NYT daily crossword and some of their other games.
