Another week and still not much to say about my knitting. I have gotten some knitting in this week which is good. I’m really doubting I’ll finish it before Christmas though which is not. And it’s really starting to tick me off. Not the knitting – I do still like the pattern and project and I think it will be really pretty, if-I-do-say-so-myself. But I have been working on it for FOUR MONTHS. The eternal feel of this project is driving me a bit batty.
I’ve made a little more progress in my reading. I finished 7 by Jen Hatmaker. Really interesting read. I didn’t care for her tone in places but she had a lot of interesting things to say. The weeks leading up to Christmas have been a great time to consider all the excesses in our life. Food, stuff, spending, waste, media, stress – all things we have too much of now and will only accumulate more of in the next couple weeks. Lots of good things to think about this Advent.
I’m still reading Mother Teresa, Bright Evening Star, and A Coming Christ in Advent. Not making as much progress in those as I would like but good reading all the same. And I had to return You Are Your Child’s First Teacher to the library 😦 I had renewed it 3 times already and still only been able to finish 7 chapters. I’ll try again in the new year because, again, it was a good read with lots of good thinks to think. But I did pick up This Year It Will Be Different by Maeve Binchy. I needed another “Christmasy” read and there it was. So far I’m loving it.
And now off to further distract myself from the dishes and laundry by linking up with Ginny. Oh, I love Wednesdays. (I’m not sure the rest of the household is quite so enthused though.)
