Keeping it short this week. But making some progress for a change 🙂 I spent some time on my yarn nest not that I’ve worked it out yet. In fact I might have made it worse. But I am resisting the urge (for now at least) to just cut it. And I’ve gotten some rows knit on the wee babe BSJ. I’ll have some good knitting time in the car this weekend since I haven’t gotten the quilt done to bind on the road which had been my plan.
As for reading – still working on Life of Pi. I’m having a hard time getting into it but I enjoy when I do pick it up. Maybe I’m having trouble picking it up because I’m also half way through Order of the Phoenix. There are also of course an insane number of books and stories I read with the boys. I have to say, a new one which is one of the best I’ve read in a while we got from the library this week – We’re All in the Same Boat by Zachary Shapiro. It’s a telling of Noah’s ark, what it was like on the ark for Noah and the animals and how they had to learn to work together. And it’s an alphabet book too. I love all the verbs and adjectives: “The penguins were pacing. The quails were quick-tempered. The rabbits were rowdy.” I love words. 🙂
I’m linking up with Ginny today. Maybe next week I’ll have some stash busted so I can link to the stash bash I am trying to participate in too. Gotta have hope.
