It’s Monday and the kids are back in school!

Hooray! Spring Break is over!

(Not what my kids are saying, just me)

For the past four weeks I’ve been working on this afghan stitch-along with The Crochet Crowd and I’ve learnt quite a few new things like crocheting cables and popcorn stitches. And this week I’m working on putting the final border on.

We didn’t do all that much over spring break – the husband was busy working so we didn’t get to travel anywhere. But we did some fun stuff around our city,  plenty of play time and playground stuff, and when a pineapple express decided to head our way, the boys got building their Lego Ninjago sets!



The Dog of the Marriage – Amy Hempel


Together with the kids, we’ve been watching The Kids Baking Championship via Sling TV. It’s quite amazing what some of these kids (aged about 11-12) can do, not just in terms of decorating but also their choice of flavors.


The Last Black Unicorn – Tiffany Haddish


Homemade walnut bread with Brie


Yorkshire Gold with milk


Not quite sure yet this week. Pork chops perhaps.

Some fried beehoon or rice vermicelli with carrots, green beans and tofu.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


  1. Look at you with your crafting! I’m so impressed! This Monday I’m finishing up Brittney Cooper’s book Eloquent Rage and hopefully Ursula Vernon’s Clockwork Boys as well! And if there’s any time left over I’m going to launch into Martha Wells’s second Murderbot novella, which I’m v. excited for.
