knitting and reading. What a perfect

plan to put on a bookshelf in my bedroom.
I started this runner several weeks ago, knit about 10 rows, and then
put it down. Not because I didn’t enjoy
knitting it, but because homeschooling was taking over my life! I realized that with me talking so much about
making time for your passions, I really needed to take my own advice. So, I am back at it. I would like to finish this soon because I am
attempting to make a little reading/knitting nook in my bedroom as a place I

well. I had my goal of reading 100
books, and was getting through 10-15 books per month during the first three
months of the year; then I lost my reading mojo. I think part of it is because I didn’t know
what to read next, and no books I found were really holding my interest. Then last week I posted an Instagram picture
of an old mindless favorite of mine – Twilight. Now, you may love or hate the series, I happen
to love them even though the writing isn’t stellar. So, I was incredibly pleased to find out the
next day that there was a tenth anniversary edition released which included an
all new writing of the first Twilight book.
I of course immediately bought it for kindle, and started reading. It is kind of strange to read the same story
from a different perspective, but I am enjoying it!
