Booking Through Thursday

Pick one of your favorite authors. Donna Tarte

  1. What are some of your favorite books by this author The Secret History

  2. Why do you like this author? She has an amazing vocabulary, and a very classical style. Reading her is almost like reading Austen, another favorite.

  3. Have you read everything by this author? Why or why not? So far she only has two novels, so yes. But I read them backwards, not that they are sequential.

Loose Ends

Well, with the hubby away I've been tying up loose ends, almost literally. His vest is completely finished, the munchkin's pinafore is done, and two afghan square are going out in Monday's mail. I'm back where I re-started on Eris, and much happier with this second attempt, and I just may get around to toe up sock #2. I feel very productive, and very tired. The munchkin woke up last night at 1:00 and screamed bloody murder until about 2:30. It felt much later than that though. She hasn't needed a mid-night bottle in months. I don't know what got into her. She'd better not do it tonight.
I've come away from my sister's wedding with a little wisdom. Yes I hate sewing items with a lining, and yes satin is not on my favorites list, but I do like to sew. I'm thinking the munchkin may need some cute summer clothes. I love the tanks that button in the back over little bloomer type shorts, or maybe some cute sun dresses. Hmmmmm, I may just have to go to JoAnn's.

An Austen Devote

You scored as Marianne Dashwood. Most girls can relate with Marianne on a more personal level than some of Austen's other characters. She represents the emotional longings and struggles that seem to attack and bless us at the same time. Loyal to a fault, passionate for experience and life, and a bit over-emotional, Marianne matures and grows (making her so beloved).

Elizabeth Bennet

It's been so long

I have been entirely to busy with my lil sis's wedding. But now it's over, and after much wailing and nashing of teeth it turned out okay. And so now I have my life back, sort of. I was off for Spring Break last week, and now I'm back to the grind. And DH's traveling season is gearing up. So lots of baby time for me. But at least I'm getting back into my groove. I hope to have FO pics by the end of the week. How ambitious! In the mean time, how about some cute.
