September 2010

Reading: I'm still reading 2 of the books I mentioned in the last post. I'm about 1/3-1/2 way through A Walk in the Woods, and it's about the best book ever. I am in love with it. It's half humor and half non-fiction, full of facts about the trail and the flora and fauna of the Appalachians, and it's about hiking!

I've only got maybe 20 pages of The Omnivore's Dilemma left, and am finding the last bit tedious. I guess I just don't care about mushrooms. So I generally choose reading the other book instead.

I have another non-fiction book that I took out of my library cause it's too high level for my now K-5 school. It will be going to the middle school but not before I read it! It's called When Plague Stikes. It's in 3 sections - one about the bubonic plague, one about smallpox and one about AIDS.

Making: I finished all of Amanda's washcloths, even have another one going that I may keep for me. Need to weave in the ends. I need to get started on my Christmas ornaments for the exchange. I am debating on doing the same ornies or making new ones. I do love the ones I always make. Also need to make something for my secret pal.
