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.

Yarn Along

Knitting right along, making progress. Not as much as I’d like (is it ever?) But going right along. As long as I pay attention and don’t make foolish mistakes while watching taekwondo classes and have to unknit rows to fix it. Not that that has happened this week or anything…

I started All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and Hands Free Life by Rachel Macy Stafford. Both are making me slow down and think a little.

It feels so good to be knitting again🙂

Not that I accomplished much in that department this week but I have high hopes now that I’m actually at it again that. It helps that I’m loving what I’m working on (sorry I can’t share it yet but eventually I will, I promise.)

Meanwhile, the reading has been fast and furious. I might have finished 4 books in the last week. In my defense, 3 of the 4 were super fluffy and the 4th was already in progress. But they were just the distraction needed for those super hot August days when even thoughts of picking up my needles made my hands sweat. And my pace will slow quite a bit now – my work is picking up (but there will be some reading for that which I’ll share) and we’ve started our school year (I’ve never stated it outright here but you might have picked up that we homeschool and start our year early so we can take a leisurely Christmas break and finish the year early.) Those both hinder my personal reading a smidge.😉 A very good smidge but all the same… A new rhythm will develop, I just have to give it some time.

No knitting to show but I have been working on it a little. I only had to cast on twice! Now to carve out the time I need to get knitting!

I finished The Cursed Child and it was ok. Definitely not “the eighth story” but a good story. I’m hoping to reread the whole series again soon and add that to the end. I’m sure I’ll find more in it in another reading. Then I finished North by Northanger by Carrie Bebris which was fun. My current nonfiction is The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman. It has been on the shelf forever and I am finally getting to it. I’m trying to keep at least one fiction and one nonfiction going and rotating through different topics in my nonfictions. The fiction is allowed to all be light and fluffy.
