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.
I had Monday off of work thanks to MLK Day, so I did a bunch of work on my blog and around the house. I got four posts written (!!), went to the library, finished up a project for a friend, and read a bunch. It was the best way to spend the day off, in my opinion!
That evening, I headed to open studio with my ceramics classmate Autumn to continue working on our pots! I totally changed direction on my piece because it was getting way bigger than I anticipated. 😂This one will be great for a plant on our porch when we finish the remodel!
On Tuesday in class, we continued working on our pots, but also learned how to glaze our pots for a raku firing. We’re going to be firing our pots this week, which will be super fun! One of mine definitely ended up looking like Baby Groot, so I glazed him white with lime green tips (there wasn’t a brown available). Fingers crossed he turns out!
On Wednesday, Sean picked up some thai food for us and we watched Marriage Story on Netflix. It was a good movie, but I still hated it… if that makes sense. It was too sad for my liking.
We continued our unintentional-Adam-Driver binge on Thursday when we went to see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in theatres. I realized in the movie that I had no idea what has been going on in the recent Star Wars movies, because of all of the ones I’ve seen (everything but episodes 2 and 3), I’ve only seen them once. Sean and I are now working to fix that thanks to Disney+.
After the movie, we went to one of our favorite spots in town, the Stamped Robin, for a quick drink. Always a good time!
Yesterday we headed to Grand Rapids to pick up some tools from my dad, and then had lunch with our friends Josh and Ashley at Brewery Vivant. It had been a long time since I’d been there, and Sean had never been, so it was a fun break from the norm—normally we’d go to Founders, because…. Founders.
Today I’m hoping to do some tidying up around the house and continuing my tradition of reading all the time. I’ve already finished 5 of my 52-book goal this year, which is really exciting!
