Yarn Along & 7x7

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link at Ginny's to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

It's getting late in the day, and I have to force myself to sit down at the computer (again) to put up today's post.  I've spent too much time on the computer already today, simply because I had nowhere to be except here.  And it's not laundry day.

#5 on yesterday's list should have been to cut way back on computer playtime because it makes for a much more peaceful day!  I've noticed lately that the days I just don't feeel like being at the computer, I'm more peaceful and chores get done in a more timely fashion.  It's also very likely that I'll branch out and do something different that I've been meaning to get to.  I love those days!

I have spent a lot of time knitting yesterday and today, but I just can't seem to finish this silly Drop in the Ocean.  That's it's new name.  I'm almost there, though!  I might be able to get it done tonight ---- aack, no.  Choir practice.

I worked on the Color Affection quite a bit Saturday while I watched a movie about J.K. Rowling. Despite my son complaining the whole time that it was a bad movie, I enjoyed it.  Now, every time I pick up the shawl to work on it, I have a strong desire to read all the Harry Potter books again!

I picked up a new book last night off my TBR shelf.  It's one of the few works of fiction on that shelf, and I'm feeling a real lack of fiction in my life these days!  My brain is a bit tired from trying to plow through G. K. Chesterton. 

Anyway, I picked up Mr. Blue, (not an affiliate link), who is a joyful chap despite his poverty.  He remained joyful when his rich uncle died and left him $2 million dollars which he happily spent in a couple of years.  I'm anxious to see how he gets on after that!


  1. 6:15am-stream of thought after reading your post

    more fiction -hmmm something funny about that Harry Potter stuff - a little addictive... I've also felt the urge to reread that series... again. Not the best use of my time.

    Wonder if she likes Michael O'Brien... yeah right, lots of people just love apocalyptic fiction just as much as you do... Go ahead - mention the old standby - Father Elijah. Who has time to read that again? Its like reading LOTR. You have to binge read or it takes you 6 months.

    then she'll never get that beautiful shawl done - and if she doesn't get that one done, how will she ever start on the one she's sure to make for me... hmmm.

    audio book - she can knit and O'Brien

    if Overdrive has zero Chesteron - they won't have any O'Brien.

    Audible - no dice.

    I wonder.....

    wow - they have lots of good audiobooks - even Chesterton.
    Now for the trust fund to kick in to buy them...

    hmmm... (pondering life with a trust fund)

    6:25am... voice from downstairs - "Honey, Judith's bus will be here in 10 minutes, have you got her up yet?"

    grrrr... no....
    Thanks a lot Sara...

    1. haha! Beverley, you are too funny. Go back and read #5. ;-)

  2. Oh beautiful! It came out perfect! There is a movie about JK?


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
