I haven’t been getting much reading done lately, with all the birthday and Christmas and family celebrations. I’m still working through Parables and The Things of Earth. I’m itching for a good fiction, though. I have a list waiting, just need to force myself to finish up what I’m reading before I move onto something else. James Herriot’s Treasury for Children was one of the kids’ Christmas gifts and we started on it today. They seemed to really love it, as I figured they would. They love anything having to do with animals + farm life, and so do I, really.
Noah’s first sock is done and I’m part way through the gusset of sock 2. I hope to have it done by tomorrow. He seems more excited about these than Phoebe did, so I’m hoping he likes them! She told me after I gave her hers for Christmas that she wanted red, not pink, and that they were too hot and poke-y. Ahh! But when I told her I’d just hand them down to her sister, she seemed suddenly quite attached to them.
Either way, I enjoyed making them. 🙂
