Yarn Along

Oh dear, not nearly enough knitting has been going on. Not nearly enough. I have got to work on that. Because this is getting embarrassing.

As you can see, my reading pile is a bit out of control. I finished Belgravia – a good read for sure. Now back to some Amish fiction and Andrew Greeley. And trying to finish The Spirit of the Liturgy before I have to dive into the reading for my program. And everything else that has crossed my path. Because I’m never distracted by new books. No, not me.😉

This Moment

A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Back to green. I need to pick up the pace a little here but this week the knitting time has been knit or miss. And a lot more miss than knit. Hopefully this week will be more productive. (My goal is to be onto another colorway before next Yarn Along. Ya’ll are gonna be so sick of my hidden knitting but that’s just what it will be for a while. Perhaps I can motivate myself to do some other posts so at least it wont be weeks and weeks of the same picture – my book, my bag, and my tea on the kitchen table.)

My reading has slowed a little too. (Which is too bad only because I have another 2 library books waiting patiently that I would rather not have to renew.) It’s Belgravia by Julian Fellowes. Mom had it out of the library and finished in time for me to have a turn before it’s due. I’m enjoying it. It might be a tad predictable but I’m reading because I love Downton, right?

Ahh, those weeks when lofty goals are thwarted by reality. Or laziness. Or books. I had hoped to finish what I’m working on but, alas, not so much. Close but not finished. Luckily I’m really enjoying this project and luckily I would be able to finish a section in under a week if it weren’t for… squirrel! (Or book… facebook… work… book … kids… movie… book…)

I’m still devouring fluffy books and I’ll keep it up until I start some course work for work. That will most likely slow me down. A little. I should really push myself to finish The Spirit of the Liturgy before that too but I’m not sure I can pull that off. It requires actual thinking which most days it is difficult to find time for. Time to start making time I suppose.

Well, I would have made more progress if I hadn’t spent that hour last night unknitting and reknitting the same 10 rows. But sometimes so it goes. Now I need to set some (realistic) goals to finish in a (reasonable) amount of time. And then actually make it happen but that’s just a tiny detail.

I finished All the Light We Cannot See – what a good book! Now I’m into Irish Lace by Andrew Greeley. If I can finish it today I will have read 10 books in August. Because apparently I’m a little crazy in the reading department right now. (Helped by the fact that 8 out of 10 have been super light and fluffy, as in read in a day or 2 light and fluffy. But who’s counting?)
