I know I promised a home improvement update, but life has been busy with home improvements, hockey, school, napping, etc. Be patient, dear readers. I haven’t forgotten.
I’m linking up with Ginny’s Yarn Along again (and on Wednesday even!). Currently there’s a man in my kitchen/dining room working very hard to tear up the laminate flooring. The builders glued the boards directly to the concrete rather than doing the slightly more expensive option of installing a floating floor. This means that when the boards separated because of a crack in the cement, they have to be torn up and new boards installed. I’m holed up in my bedroom with my computer, knitting, Nook, and snacks since the kitchen is a dust factory.
Maybe I should’ve cropped that. I’m working on a Minecraft blanket square (I know – you’re completely surprised). I’ve been working on some other things here and there, but this is what I have out right now.
My turn for The Absent One by Jussi Adler-Olsen came up at the library, so I can finally read the thrilling conclusion (I had about 50 pages left when my loan expired, and it was an ebook, so I immediately lost access to it). I’m listening to A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore still (I think I was last week?). That’s nearly finished, so I’ll need to find another audiobook that meets my requirements (decent narrator, light storyline). Suggestions?
I’ve completely neglected to take monthly pictures of the back yard. I need to start doing that again soon. The leaves are starting to change color because autumn is here!
Hey – if you have a favorite autumnal soup/dinner/whatever thing – hook me up? I need some kitchen based inspiration.
