Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along this week. I have been dreaming about Veera's Color Affection for some time, now. Just trying to figure out if I can use yarn I have - or do I need to get something to go along with what I have. This lovely alpaca came from Charlottesville and a trip to Stony Mountain Fibers with my sister last spring. I loved the color and bought two big skeins not even knowing what size needle to use or what to knit with it. It is LUSH-ous.
The novel Pope Joan is a fast read - I love historical fiction and this fits the bill. Huh? There was a woman pope, ever? Interesting, indeed.
Last week I finished 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker. Month by month Jen gives up something - almost like fasting in different areas of her life. For the first month - food - she eats only 7 items all month long. This book really gets to how we spend and do without thinking and how taking a break from some or all of it - in even small bursts - can rejuvinate and restore us in our thinking about how and why we were created. Loved it and would read it again.
