Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs.  I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

I took this photo and uploaded it on Sunday evening and created a Yarn Along post, scheduling it for Wednesday because part of hurricane preparation is creating a Yarn Along post!  Of course, we never lost power and my efforts didn’t end up being necessary. This week (and in the coming weeks I suspect) I am working on a knitting project for a friend, and Beatrix’s Bulle. I have made a little more progress since taking the photo, and have divided for the sleeves on the Bulle.

I finished reading Washington Square.  I am looking forward to discussing the characters with my book club!  I am not sure what I am going to read next.  I have still been reading The Beekeeper’s Handbook when I have the chance. I snapped my photo next to a stack of the boys’ library books.  Seth is re-reading The Great Brain books, and The Mad Scientists’ Club series.  These are some of his favorite books.

All is well with us

How are all of you?  I hope that those of you who were in the path of Sandy are safe and warm.  We escaped unscathed.  In fact, my children are terribly disappointed that we never even lost power.  Silly kids.

We did so much clean up in anticipation of damage from this storm, that we have actually come out ahead.  The only branches on the ground, are those still lying around from this summer’s crazy storm.  I am very grateful.

It is cold and wet and windy here.  So, naturally, I have been helping Intruder to sneak inside.  Jonny exclaimed that, “Cats in the house will be the death of me!”  No, he’s not allergic.

My boys are all lying on the bed still occupying the living room floor, listening to The Fellowship of the Ring.  There was a group groan when I mentioned school.  Maybe I’ll give them the day off.

p.s.  Rachel shared the link to this wind map and it’s really cool!
