I thought for sure that I would have my cowl done this week, but alas, I do not. I blame it on a fun (and much warmer!) weekend with my husband and kiddos. I guess I can’t really blame them then…Now we are back to the wonderful polar vortex, so I will be sitting down and finishing this as fast as possible as I need to wear it…like now!
I am trying to look through other projects that I might want to do. I do not have a lot of time to dedicate to knitting, unfortunately, so I typically go for the smaller kids knits. I was thinking that I might make Jack and Emma both spring sweaters. I made one for Emma last year. I seem to say that I will knit both of my children sweaters, but Emma ends up being the only one that gets a finished sweater. I think that this year I will have to start on Jack’s first.
Reading…well sometimes I question myself on doing this whole literature based approach to homeschooling. But, I realize then that I love reading, and I love reading to my kids. I think what I love most about reading to my kids is that they will sit and listen. I know that won’t always be the case, so I should enjoy it now. And I do. However, when I looked at my dining room table tonight with all the books we were using this week, I kind of laughed at it all.
As far as personal reading goes, I finished the Frontier House book, which was really interesting. I really liked the letters from actual homesteaders, and the personal stories. I am currently reading Eat, Pray, Love. I have seen the movie, but never read the book – not something I do often. I have heard mixed reviews on the book, but I really enjoyed the movie, so I figured I might as well try it out. So far so good. I am only about 50 pages in, so it could go downhill fast, I’m not sure.
I don’t know what my next book will be. I have heard a lot of people talk about A Thomas Jefferson Education lately, and it sounds really interesting. I really like to read any and all books about homeschooling and the different philosophies people have. I like a little bit of everything.
What are you reading this week? Do you have any projects you are working on?
Linking up with Tami, Ginny, and Nicole
