That's Entertainment (what we're watching, reading, eating and playing while we knit)

  • Made Cappuccino Caramels. The process of making caramel was fun, but she won't make this recipe again since it tasted too much like butter. 
  • Watching Kim's Convenience on Netflix.
  • Started a Gratitude Practice. She grabbed a small notebook out of the drawer and started to simply write down 3 things she is grateful for each day to quietly take back some joy this winter.
