Words and Wool

Life is a little uncharacteristic of what it has been for me -- very little knitting, very little reading. We are off to a very good start with our homeschooling this year but its just taking all my time to keep the schooling running, the doctor appointments attended and our heads above water as far as housework and laundry go. Fortunately, I am enjoying these days despite missing my time for handwork and reading. I am thinking, "January is coming!" (That means more time for knitting and reading, right??!!)

I do have this lovely stack of books beside my bed and here and there I am getting a chapter or two read. I stopped by the library today and the clerks commented that they haven't seen enough books coming through for me (and I didn't have stacks to return to them today). I know! I haven't had time to sit down and order books!

Friday is our Christmas planning tea and I think I'll bring my ideas for knitting and crochet for the season. I'm going to try and be limited. I have three things I'd like to make. At this rate, I may have to go for just one or two!!! The important thing is to enjoy whatever it is I'm doing and not think too hard about what I'm not doing!

For more ideas on knitting and reading, check out Ginny's Yarn A Long.

saw a book in your photo that took my fancy and will order it from my library soon - its the circle of quiet book... I've never heard of itbefore but it sounds like a nice read. Thanks for sharing!

I think it will take awhile for you to spiritually return home from Scotland. ;)

I see some books in that stack that look really interesting, too. Love L'Engle!

Long e-mail or perhaps snail mail soon.

I read the four books by Madeleine L'Engle that include Circle of Quiet (all other titles have fled from my memory at the moment) and I did really enjoy them. She was a very distinctive voice and thinker.
