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.
It felt like the first normal week of 2020, now that Sean is back from Florida. And if this was any indication of the pace of the year, 2020 is going to be busy!
I’ve been trying to put up artwork recently, because we have a bunch of framed things that we never put up when we moved in. It’s been so fun! I love the photo of Bondi Beach that I put up in the bathroom.
It does a great job tying in with the Bulbasaur planter, don’t you think? 😉 Plus we’re getting a green bathmat in February that will work really well with it.
We started His Dark Materials on HBO last week Friday, and already finished it. It was only 8 episodes, but they were good. I especially love it because I just finished reading the trilogy back in December. Highly recommend!
My ceramics class continued this week! I’m really enjoying it. I’ve found that I feel super anxious leading up to the class (really up until I walk in the door, if we’re being honest), but as soon as I get there, I really enjoy it. Does anyone relate?
We learned coil pots this week, and the one above is actually my second attempt… the first time I tried to go out too far too quickly, because I was having a hard time visualizing how I needed to make it. It ended up collapsing, so… we’ll see if I’m able to salvage it this next week.
I finished my third book of the year this week, Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid. Highly recommend.
On Thursday, Sean and I went to our favorite restaurant in Kalamazoo, Maru. We always get chef sushi rolls (which the chefs design completely) and they’re so good. They also had a crab rangoon dip on special, which was amazing. Going to Maru is always a good idea.
Yesterday we were supposed to head to Fennville for an annual chili cook-off, but my car hasn’t been in the best shape lately (I just need to make the time to take it in), and we got some crazy weather Friday night, so we decided to skip. In the end I’m glad, because even though the weather calmed down for a hot second, it picked back up and was all-around unpleasant.
Instead, we stayed home and I made cookies and cinnamon rolls! Not a bad trade-off in my book.
In addition, this week I’ve done quite a bit of changes on the blog! I’ve decided to stop blogging about blogging and design. While I loved it in the past, my heart isn’t in it any more, so I’m going to fully transition over to lifestyle content! I’m really excited about it, and I hope you’ll join me for the ride.
