Words and Wool

I have been working on secret Easter knitting so I can't post pictures yet! When not working on that I was completing my most current batch of wool flowers for the Village Yarn Shop.
I got a little time this week to finish up organizing my wool felt and make room so I could actually hang a few dresses in my closet too! James joined me to finish his math work. :)

As for reading, you can see from the above picture that my bedside reading is out of control once again.  I will have to take some time to get things organized. In the mean time I just enjoy it. :)

This past week I finished:

A History of England from the Tudors to the Stuarts; Parts 1-4, Includes 8 DVD's and 4 Course Guidebooks (The Great Courses: Modern History) by The Teaching Company. This was 48 lectures on one of my favorite portions of history and I certainly enjoyed it! It took me months and months to get through this as I only could watch when I was ironing and no one was around, or at other very random times. I think I have a course on Medieval History to begin next.

One of the things studying history reminds us is that there is nothing new under the sun! Crazy situations and problems in society have taken place before! And various governments throughout time have never really gotten it together! Should I expect any better in our day? :)

And now I must go and tackle a few of those books sitting on my nightstand!

Your bedside table looks like my living room coffeetable did before I decided I'd better clear it.

Of course, anyone I know who would come to visit would look at the stack of books and know they were at my house, hehehe.

Sitting here looking at my deck, hoping the snow melts all the way soon. It should do so by the weekend.

Your bedside table looks a lot like mine! (In terms of stacks of books - )
