Friday Fun! (March: Ostara and Concert)

A swan swimming on the edge of a river.

A swan on the Charles. It let me get this close to it!

Hello my lovely readers!

It’s my pleasure to be able to wish you all a happy spring!  I am so excited for the lighter days and warmer weather, although we definitely are still having a few cold ones here and there.  My partner and I celebrated Ostara (spring equinox) with an after-work walk on the Charles River, a special dinner, and presents of course.  We were surprised to spot three swans on the Charles during our walk.  It’s not common to see swans on the Charles, so it was a nice surprise.  Plus, they let us get very close to them!  For Ostara dinner, we made deviled eggs, salad with pickled turnips and homemade honey mustard dressing, and homemade handcut fries.  I had a pina colada with it, and my partner had hard cider.  Delicious!

Even though we’ve been together for over a year and a half, my partner and I had never been to a concert together.  We finally changed that this month when we went to see The Dum Dum Girls live.  They’re a band my bf is a fan of, so I hadn’t listened to them prior to the night.  They put on a great show, though.  Kind of surfer/rocker chick style music.  Plus their outfits were really fun.  I left the concert wanting one of their albums, which I think marks it a success on their part.  We had a blast going to a concert together, and I’m pumped to go to more!

In shop news, this month I released a new line (Miffy / Nijntje an adorable little bunny from children’s lit), and I made my first sale (my Sriracha pattern)!

I posted six book reviews this month and read five books.  I unfortunately got a bit bogged down in a stroke of bad luck of three mediocre reads in a row, so I didn’t end up with time to read a Mental Illness Advocacy Reading Challenge book or an accepted review copy 2014 book this month.  I plan to make up for it next month so I can stay on track!

I’ve been dialing back in my fitness along with the gradually lengthening days.  I’m doing more yoga and calisthenics, and aiming to lift heavy once a week.  Hopefully next month I can ramp it all up a bit more.

I hope you all are enjoying your springs! Happy reading!
