This is my late night, last minute yarn along picture. The grey ball in front is another blanket square I ripped out (too small). You can see an index card with a stitch pattern I know works up to the correct size. You can also see a massive list of books. I forget where I found this, but it’s 339 books long. I think I had plans to work my way thru it and I might need to get back on that plan. Maybe if I give myself permission to not finish things.
I’m currently listening to Company by Max Berry. I just finished These High, Green Hills by Jan Karon (another Mitford book). I’m not really loving the audiobook. Maybe it’s the narrator, but it’s kind of boring me and it really shouldn’t. Maybe I should read it as a print book? The Mitford book was what I needed it to be: relaxing. I’m ignoring Spinning Forward because I’m kind of tired of the characters talking about how unlikely their situation is (and how it seems like a movie rather than real life). I may not finish it. My reading choices this year have been kind of lousy. I need a good book to turn things around for me. Bleh.
While on the east coast, we’re down south, so we haven’t had any of the snow that the New England/Mid-Atlantic regions have been dealing with this week. If you got snow, how much did you get? I’d kind of like to get snow again – Friday early afternoon would be a great time. We’ve been getting rain and my front lawn is starting to flood – there’s standing water out there currently. I have no idea how to improve the drainage, or if it’s even possible.
Thing 2 is off on his first overnight field trip tomorrow morning. He’s quite excited and I can’t wait to hear about his trip. His teacher is going to send text updates during the trip, which is pretty cool. Do you have a favorite field trip memory?
