Day 336

In typical Kimberly Davis fashion, I'm picking up quite a few hobbies during this shift in routine. Ever since he shaved his beard, Richard has been sad about it and complained that his chin is cold. Yesterday, I took matters into my own hands (quite literally) and knitted him a new beard and mustache! I finished it this morning, and Richard tolerated a brief photo shoot on our back patio. I recently upgraded my cell phone, and this was the perfect opportunity to test out the portrait mode. (Speaking of hobbies, I was a SUPER amateur photographer back in high school but haven't done anything beyond snapshots of events in my life and post-run selfies in at least a decade.)

Richard shared the photo with some of his coworkers who also had to shave their beards, and now I will be knitting beards while I watch Netflix for the next few days. I'm switching to some less bulky yarn, which will keep future mustaches from being so...pronounced....but I'm thrilled with my first one! His coworkers referred to it as a Viking Walrus mustache, and I'm okay with that. Still, I'm looking forward to mixing and matching the styles. (The patterns for beards and mustaches are here!) Also, this was my first time knitting an I-cord, and it turned out just fine. 

Other than knitting, today involved a combination of work, exercising, logging 45 minutes toward a writing challenge I'm doing, and watching The Pharmacist on Netflix. Richard and I will finish the series tomorrow, and I am excited but also sad it will be over. I was late to the game on starting the series, but anyone else who hasn't watched it yet should totally start now.

Something that made today great: I had a good run, even in the heat! 
Time I woke up: 8:45 am
