April/May 2010

I finished Peony In Love not long after I wrote that post. It did get much better. You learn so much about the spiritual beliefs of the Chinese at that time in history. I wonder if they are similar today, if the old legends still continue.

I have fortunately gotten several books that I've had on my wishlist for several months, maybe years even. A couple of Michael Pollen books and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I also bought many more at the Highland Park Library book sale fundraiser. I hope to get a lot of reading done while I'm in Maine for the summer.

Currently I've started The Omnivore's Dilemma again, but it is slow going this time, probably because I'm not spending 3 hours a day on a train. I've got a lot going on right now and am still getting caught up with magazines. I think I will only renew one of them, though that magazine does take a while to read.

One quick book I read was Pioneer Girl, a YA non-fiction book about a woman who grew up on the prairie. I love this stuff!

As for crocheting, since mid april I've been working mostly on my PTO afghan, which I'll be donating for an auction. If the weather stays in the 90s though, I can't imagine anyone wanting it.
