Yarn Along 2013: Week 50

We’ve had company over the past several days and I’ve only vaguely been keeping track of the days.  So, while I knew she was leaving yesterday and that she was leaving on Tuesday, the fact that today was Wednesday hit me at about 9pm tonight.  Thankfully, I made it to appointments and practices that were scheduled for today.  Maybe on autopilot.  Mostly I forgot that it was yarn along day.

I don’t have a book picture, but I’m reading Divergent by Veronica Roth and listening to Star Island by Carl Hiassen.   I’m still working on the pink socks.  I did almost no knitting while my mom was here.  I did play many games of Bananagrams, though.

Today, Thing 1 and I headed to a homeschool day at a local historical site.

It’s a plantation site.  We saw sheep (aka “yarn, the beginning”), pigs, a cow, horse, and donkey (no picture).  I forced my giant boy to take a picture with me.  I bought Cartridge Candy for Christmas stockings.    We weren’t there for very long, but it was a nice block of time with him and being out of the house.  We need to do it more often.

    Divergent! Have you read Legend? I like the characters of the Hunger Games best and the plot of Legend the best (though the writing itself is terrible), but I think Divergent is the best actual series.

    I haven’t read Legend. You’ll need to give me an author, because there are probably a bazillion books with that title.
    I have very mixed feelings about THG. I liked the first book, the second I treated like a “bridge” because I knew it was part of a trilogy and it was okay if it wasn’t a fantastic book in isolation, and the third I disliked. I found a review on goodreads that summed up my thoughts once I read it. I’m sure I’ve posted about it.
    As a Stephen King reader, THG seemed like a cross between “The Long Walk” and “The Running Man” mixed with a good spoonful of Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery.”
    So far, I like Divergent. I started it MONTHS ago, then set it aside for other things. I’ve been reading it pretty consistently over the past week.

    Aine was looking over my shoulder and asked if that was your new house…
