Sunday Scratches is where I share the little stuff that has happened throughout the week. In hockey, “scratches” are people who are on the roster but do not play in the game. On the blog, “scratches” are the things that have happened to me throughout the week that aren’t necessarily big enough to be an entire post.

Happy Sunday and happy Pi Day! Here are the scratches for the week.
It was a big week this week. We had a lot of deadlines and projects coming to a head, and I’m so glad it’s behind me. Namely, today is the last day of the Cookie Program, which always feels like a sign of spring to me!
I’ve been working on setting better boundaries at work (this week is the closest I’ve gotten to working only 40 hours since I was moved to salary last summer!), which means I’ve made time for personal hobbies. Sean and I got Mario Odyssey on Monday and spent a bunch of time this week playing it, which was really fun! It’s a great two-player game.
Speaking of video games, I’m taking advantage of the spring weather on my island in Animal Crossing to do a bunch of reconfiguring! I’ve realized that without fun, relatively lengthy projects, the game becomes a chore. I was getting a bit bored of it, but I’m definitely re-energized now! Oh, and I caught two new-to-me fish this week, so I’m only one away from hitting my March goal!
I also did a bunch of reading this week! I’ve gotten behind on my Book of the Month picks, so I finished both Outlawed and The Last Apothecary this week. Both were awesome! Now I’m working on Infinite Country.
The weather has been warming up (thank GOD) so I’ve been making a point to take Stanley on lots of walks and spend time on the porch. Even when it’s a little chilly outside, it’s been sunny, so the porch warms right up as long as we keep the windows closed. 🥰
And in more good news, Sean and I will be eligible for the vaccine in a few short weeks! That + the warmer weather feels like a light at the end of the tunnel.
