Yarning is getting to be pretty much impossible when holding a baby these days. But I'll take those chubby little hands over mine on any day of the week.
I haven't been doing much with yarn- the gardens and upcoming book sale (Tomorrow! So much to do!!) are winning out on my 'free time' these days- but I have started on two more pinafores. Because I love them. Two at the same time because I wasn't sure which color I would prefer. (And still am not.)
I finished Deconstructing Penguins and really, really enjoyed it. A book about how to 'deconstruct' the hidden stories within stories (and particularly within the juvie fiction genre as they created a parent/child book club to do it), it has me a little bit excited about implementing this sort of 'story sleuthing' with the children. Now I am reading Good Advice on Writing during little snippets of time I find- it is a collection of quotations so it isn't difficult to pick up and put back down a few minutes later. Just right for this crazy busy week. Also, I have been listening to The Real Crash by Peter Schiff on audiobook. (I am kindof an economics junkie.) This has been perfect for me because I can listen while sorting our too many books on our too many bookcases. I am really happy with the efforts though. Last year I made about $120.00 selling books at this particular book sale and I hope to make this years' efforts worthwhile too. If not, at least I have made some space on the shelves.
(for new books).
