My husband gave me a hammock for our anniversary and it is a lovely place to read. I started The Night Watchman after hearing Louise Erdrich talk with Ann Patchett a few weeks ago. It was my motivation to visit a bookstore for curbside pick up. And while I was there, I had them order The Pull of the Stars which arrived this week. I was devouring The Night Watchman and wanted to slow down a bit and savor it. So this week I have been working on finishing up a few books that were lingering. Anxious to Talk About It has some very good practices and questions that have me thinking about what next steps in my anti racist education. I’m Still Here was so engaging. Hard stuff but honest and well told. Now I need to sit down with my highlights from these two books and make some notes in my book journal.
I’m very happy to be making progress on my color work sweater – Yokey Dokey. I have finished the yoke and separated for the sleeves so lots of round and round knitting now. And do you see who came to play? Yup. Our littlest person is now available for play dates. He is a very sweet baby who is just getting is voice and finding his fingers. We had a lovely time. He even napped a bit so I could knit!
I don’t know who mentioned it but I have been watching Home Fires. What a good show. I’m already on season two which is sad because I don’t think there is a season 3. Any suggestions for similar shows are welcome. And since it Wednesday I will head over to visit Kat and friends.
