Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

This one goes to eleven!

I don't like to post more than once per day, but this one is too good to pass up, even without photographic corroboration.

Thing 4 had just wandered out into the kitchen and I was listening and wondering what those noises were. Dishwasher was shut, so she wasn't heaving knives out of the silverware basket. . . what was it?

When it became too much to bear, I investigated.

Oh.

She was standing on the tall, three-stepped stepstool, hanging onto the open shelves, and carefully, very carefully, taking whole wheat fettucini noodles, one at a time, from their open package and dropping them to the floor.

Oh my.

But I have to say it does sound like a fun and challenging activity to me, even in my dotage.

Get that camera fixed!

I wonder where she got that idea? "Hmmm...I'm bored. Let's drop noodles on the floor!" That's too funny.

LOL!! My daughter, who is three, discovered that she could climb the shelves in the pantry to get the cookies.

OMG! What a crackup! I understand I carefully dropped pebbles down the exhaust pipe of my granpa's tractor at an early age, so it must be something in little human genes! LOL
