This ‘n’ That
Posted by adamswife on January 21, 2008
It snowed again yesterday- another 3 inches on top of what we already had. Can you see the little white dots of snow falling?
I usually read a book in just a couple days. Before Christmas I was finishing a book nearly every day. Since the first of the year I have been doing a lot of knitting. Can’t knit and read at the same time. And the books I’ve been reading haven’t appealed to me very much. (See my 50 Book Challenge page to read more about this.) So I think I need to read a different type of book. Maybe forget the book clubs and pick my own for a while.
Graydon is so proud that I posted his pictures yesterday. I had to print out the post and the comments for him. Now he wants to take more pictures. He has a better imagination for subjects than I do. Maybe he’ll be the family photographer. He might even learn to take pictures that don’t wave back at him from the camera. ;D Anyone know of a good how-to photography book for kids?
I’m as bad about starting new projects before the old ones are finished as I am about reading several books at once. Currently I am knitting a baby afghan to donate and a pair of mittens for my granddaughter. And I just got the yarn and dp needles I ordered so I can knit some socks. I’m anxious to get started on that project, too. I haven’t done socks before and I love the challenge of learning a new skill. Does this indicate a short attention span? Do I need therapy? Am I splitting myself into too many parts?
What I really need to do is put down the books and the knitting needles and vacuum and then go for a walk in the snow. Except our high temperature today is supposed to be 11F. So, I think I’ll walk my “inside track” instead of braving the cold. Come with me
through the family room, out the dining room door, through the playroom and then into the garage. Then it’s down the garage stairs, through the long hall, one final door and we’re back where we started. I figured out I only need to complete this circuit 24 times to log approximately 1/2 mile. Let’s get started.
