Once again joining my friend Ginny in her Yarn Along... (though I totally break the rules, sorry Ginny, too many photos, lots of books...) And the only thing I made from yarn this past week was a pink crocheted dish scrubber. A granny square dish scrubber actually. Yes, I love granny squares that much. And you see I am about to make a cheery orange one too.
Lots of excitement at the library yesterday when Jason discovered a wonderful stack of hardcover National Geographic books on the free shelf! We did our best to think of others and left more than half of them behind, still bringing home enough for us to have quite a collection.
Such neat old books with all kinds of wonderfulness to them.
The cover on the right here totally reminds me of our farm friends!
Beautiful hardcovers underneath their pretty paper jackets.
Jason had just chosen a John Muir book in the library and now we have this great book too.
Simpler times. How we long for them!
So really it was a crazy library adventure, cause we brought home 15 of these new/old hardcovers, 28 books checked out of the library, and then realized that our home is literally piled up with books at the moment! Jason is finishing up some house painting and so most of our books have been relocated to various stacks around the house.
Random books piled on and around shelves.
Old paperbacks, all collected used when I was about 20 years old. I am noticing a great lack of fiction in my life these days.
Books even stacked on the nature table, which is actually kinda sad. The table has been empty the past couple weeks, waiting for some kind of seasonal inspiration. I look forward to getting things back in order and making this space special again.
I have also been thinking about doing some posts on children's books. Books, books, books, we love all kinds. But our children's storybooks are especially dear to us. Sometimes I'm surprised at how infrequently I share book love here, since it's such a part of our lives.. So yes, perhaps a little series on that.
I have some sewing creations to share next time, I have been much busier with fabric than with yarn these days.
Happy well wishes to all!
