It has been so flip-floppy, weather wise, lately. In an odd way, I've been enjoying it; I get to have both Spring and Winter at the same time. Well, day to day, at least. One day I'll be drinking warm Glögg at Simon's Tavern with Elide and the next day I'll be enjoying the sunshine and a bloody Mary with Carolee.
These extreme changes in the weather have been oddly gratifying. I can be active one day, but then stay in and be lazy the next day with little guilt. On my lazy days, I've been doing a lot of knitting and reading. I'll be writing a post soon on some of my recent knitting projects, but I haven't read anything very blog-worthy as of late.
One of my most-epic indoor activities is that last weekend, eight of us did an extended version Lord of the Rings marathon. Twelve hours, and it was so much fun. Each couple was in charge of a meal, which kept us well fed. I ended-up making Baked Macaroni and Cheese and Lembas Bread (this recipe was problematic and I made many ratio changes). Everyone in the group had different knowledge bases of Tolkien's work and LOTR, so it was really interesting to hear different facts and histories presented during points in the movies. It was surprisingly not tiring, but perhaps it was due to the group I was watching the movies with. The two bunnies that live in the host's house probably helped too.
