Putting the Lazy in Lazy Sunday

Dear Ann: In the aftermath of holiday and post-holiday feasting, I’m dragging a bit. After more than a year on and nearly-on the Whole30 (google it, I’m not testifying here–OK, I’m testifying: hallelujah, it’s fantastic), my weekend in the kingdom of carbohydrates has left me feeling downright hung over.  Today I’m spending my Sunday going to barre class, sipping green tea, and knitting. To Knit I’m...

Not Necessarily Lazy Sunday: Thanksgiving Prep Edition

image

Dear Ann, Whenever Canadian Thanksgiving pops up on my social media feeds in October, a wave of schadenfreude washes over me: those poor knitters to the north, stuck in the kitchen prepping while I get to knit.

Before I throw the sack of Trader Joe’s snacks in the trunk and head west on I-80, a few...

Lazy Sunday: The Theme is M

IMG_0014

Dear Ann, I could use a truly lazy Sunday, but Lisa Downstairs has raised the prospect of venturing up to the New York Botanical Garden for the last day of the Frida Kahlo exhibit.  Driving or otherwise getting around town on Marathon Sunday is not a recipe for a day of indolence, though, so maybe I’ll cry off. Frida Kahlo, though–a powerful pull. Aside from Frida, here’s what’s on for Sunday: To Knit I’m making...
