Good Morning Friends!
We managed to get a few sprinkles around dinner time last night. It cooled the temps down to the mid-80's. Today is forecast to be sunny (again), but I think there is another good possibility of rain over night. I sure hope so.
Safe travels to Colin who flies up from Austin this morning. We won't see him till Sunday, but it will be nice to know he is in our time zone again. And, Happy Birthday to my friend Leslie!!
Now onto business! It's Wednesday which means it's time to link up with Kat and her Merry Band of Unravelers to talk making and reading. First of all I confess that I have not cast on with any of the 3 skeins I wound the other week! What? Sad but true. Hardly any knitting has taken place. I did manage to start another Nai-Nai's Favorite dishcloth,
Pretty colors in this yarn. It is Dragon Tale Yarn which is 100% cotton. The colorway is "Autumn Spice." This is a skein I picked up on sale ($4.50!!) years ago somewhere...not sure where I was. Anyway, nice to finally be using it.
Maybe today I will find the time to cast on something with one or more of those skeins I recently wound.
On the reading side of things, I finished 3 books in the last week! Yes, me!! First up, I finished "Provence, 1970" by Luke Barr. This is the story of the time in late 1970 when M. F. K. Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard, Richard Olney and others were all in Provence at the same time. They cooked and ate together and discussed food. Luke Barr is the great nephew of Fisher and had access to her journals from the time. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but I do love memoirs and especially memoirs about food (think Ruth Reichl, Molly Wizenberg, Susan Herrmann Loomis, etc.).
Next I read "The Locked Room" by Elly Griffiths. This was a good addition to the Ruth Galloway series she writes.
And, finally, I finisihed "The Last Bookshop in London" by Madeline Martin. This was my first audio book! The story takes place during the war (WWII) in London and was ok. I'm guessing that if I had gotten a hard copy of the book I might not have finished it - lots and lots of bombing descriptions. But it was ok to listen to.
I've started "Sorrow and Bliss" and am enjoying that so far (only 40 pages in or so) and I've also started "Fellowship Point." I'm only 25 pages into this book and it is easy to put down, so I'm not sure how it will go. Not started yet, but I have "Small Things Like These" by Claire Keegan queued up for listening.
Now it's time to pour another cup of coffee and do a little work. Hoping that everyone has a good Wednesday!
