A big shout out to Ginny, who hosts Yarn Along every week on her blog, Small Things.
I am still working steadily on my Fiona for soon to arrive, grandbebe #3, Rosie. I have finished the back and am now ready to start working on the front! I am pretty pleased with how it turning out and I have been browsing some different bootie (mary jane type) patterns to make a matching pair.
I have two books going --even though you only really see one in this photo. One book is on my Kindle which you see peaking out from under Fiona. The first is The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice--and yes, I have been reading this book since January. It isn't that I don't like it--I think I have reading ADHD and keep getting distracted by other newer books. So, I will keep reading away on this one when the fancy takes me--the plot is pretty slow so it is an easy one to put down and pick up again later.
The book which has really captured me this week is a Galley I received from the publisher, Harliquen MIRA. (my Kindle version does not include this pretty little cover because it is just a galley)
It is set to be released on May 28th and is written by two authors, Suzanne Hayes and Loretta Nyhan. It is an epistolary novel, and consists of letters written by two women, who are alone waiting for loved ones who are fighting far away during WWII. One of them is a young wealthy woman, and the other an older (my age!) woman who has a son and a husband away off fighting. One lives in Massachusetts and one lives in Iowa. This book will be getting a very favorable review from me--well unless it all falls apart here in the last 1/3 of the story. Be sure to put it on your reading list for May!
Now I must run and put this soup together in my crockpot--yes, I feel the need to feed my family even when I am sick...:) I suppose if you wanted some meat in this soup, you could easily throw in some chicken too.
