An online “yarnie” community I love being a part of is created by Ginny of the Small Things blog. Each Wednesday she invites everyone to share what they are working on and what they are reading on her Yarn Along link up post. She’s recently expanded to include those on Instagram using the #yarnalong .
I love being able to post my little button there and then visit all the wonderful people out there who have also linked up. I get so many new ideas for projects to start. I even make notes about what books people are reading and what they say about them when I’m ready to pick up a book again.
Until recently, I haven’t really been reading many books. I spent my time reading blogs, listening to podcasts, and the occasional audiobook (Game of Thrones is sooooo long). I was talking with my husband the other day and expressing some frustration over not knowing more about “things.” These “things” were money/investing & Catholicism. The money “thing” is something I feel I should know about because I am an adult. The Catholicism “thing” is something I feel I should know about because my husband is Catholic and it’s something I want to understand and one day, find my way towards.
Jordan suggested I read up on these things in my free time. So that meant cutting back a bit on reading blogs but I think it will be for the good of my brain and my relationship and my adulthood in the long run.
I am still working on my Cerise Curl. I realized the deadline for the little KAL running in Hunter Hammersen’s Ravelry group (Violently Domestic) ends April 15 for this one, not to mention another was started on March 15, totally missed that. I’m finally feeling the rhythm with the pattern, but I have to watch what I’m doing most of the time. I also started reading A Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanauken. It’s about a couple’s journey to finding God. It’s been beautiful and thought provoking so far. I think I read about this book on Ginny’s blog? I also read Mark Shea’s This is My Body: An Evangelical Discovers the Real Presence. This got the ball rolling around in my mind.
Anyway, here’s to a lovely Wednesday and hoping you are all finding yourselves well.
