Beautiful Day

Small Things-1284

Today was, quite nearly, a perfect day.  I’ve been feeling pretty good this week, so I took our kids on an all day excursion:  fishing, fossil hunting, castle building.  Job cast out his little plastic fish dozens of times, then reeled it in shouting, “Fishy! Fishy!” like it was the first time, every time.  The older boys helped out a good bit, but were able to spend a few hours doing their own thing while the littles and I hung out on the beach.  Everyone got wet, some cried, but mostly everyone had a great time.  They all thanked me on the way home.  I stopped and bought them ice cream.  I had gelato.  Once we got home, I took an epsom salt bath, and now maybe a bit of knitting, then bed.

p.s. Thank you for all your encouraging words and your prayers.  I feel them and appreciate your kindness very much!

Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us!~

Yarn Along-1206

This week I did more reading than knitting.  Ever since reading Kristin Lavransdatter, years ago, I have wanted to read Sigrid Undset’s The Master of Hestviken series as well.  I read the first in the series, The Axe, last week, and while it’s not Kristin, it was still very good.  While waiting for my copy of the next in the series to arrive, I read Jean Fritz’s Homesick.  It is considered juvenile literature, and I have wanted to read it since reading another of her books, about China’s Long March, for a class I teach at our homeschooling co-op.  Homesick is autobiographical, and details Fritz’s time living in China as a child in the mid-twenties.  I enjoyed reading her story.

I’m just about ready to divide for the legs on that pink jumper!
