Boy, do I need to get a life. No wonder I have no problems with insomnia, with that as my bedtime reading. One paragraph, I’m out. I need a good trashy novel.
I actually cheated a bit on this one. My closest “book” is “No Ordinary Time”, by Doris Kearns Goodwin. However it’s an audio book, and I could not figure out what page 23 and sentence five would be. I received an Ipod for Christmas this past year, and have discovered the joys of “reading” and knitting at the same time.
I’ve done more knitting on the same things. I also think I might have found the perfect yarn for a bucket hat, but I’m just not posting any more pictures till I swatch it up to see. It’s more of a DK weight than a worsted, so I’ll have to do a little fiddling with the pattern.
There were a couple of comments to my previous post about the “front porch” culture, and why we have so much trouble making connections in our own neighborhoods. I think many of us turn to blogging for this reason. Since we became civilized and moved our family activities to the back yard instead of the front porch, it is not unusual to live in a community for years and not know one’s neighbors. Heck, there might be knitters right next door. Maybe I’ll drag the hammock out to the front driveway for the summer. At the very least it would entertain the locals.
