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! Here are the scratches for the week.
The weather was beautiful this week, so I spent as much time outside / on our porch as I could. Last weekend, I went to my parents’ house for Easter and my mom and I walked two miles along the river. I loved getting outside and catching up with my mom!
We also worked on our signature tablecloths together—my grandma had a white tablecloth that she had guests sign in pencil and then she embroidered the signatures. My mom started her own, and now I’m working on mine! I had the tablecloth and had a few signatures, but I didn’t know how to do the embroidery, so my mom taught me last weekend. Once I got my first signature done, I crossed it off my 101 in 1001 list (#78)!
To take advantage of the nice weather, I’ve been working on the tablecloth and my cross-stitch project on the porch! Slowly but surely, I’ve been making progress on both.
Interestingly, I haven’t felt like reading lately—I have the feeling I’m experiencing some book burnout. I’ve already read 24 books this year, and I think I went to hard, too fast. 😂 But that doesn’t stop me from piling up books in my TBR pile next to my bed!
The work week was thankfully pretty chill—I didn’t have crazy deadlines for the first week in what feels like forever. I used the opportunity to get organized, get ahead, and delegate some projects. Here’s hoping next week is just as successful!
Oh, and my big news in the blogging world—I’ve officially canceled my CoSchedule subscription. 😱 I’ve realized that I’m not blogging enough to justify the $15-30 per month, and I could recreate the tools I needed with the free version of Asana. I’ve had the subscription since 2014, which is crazy!
