Reading While Knitting

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

You're going to have to take my word for it

Because I can't find the jump cord to post the pictures of me dancing in a still-damp post-blocking Cobblestone sweater. I'll just have to take it and the camera on the camping trip and get action shots of its intended recipient modeling it.

If it's cold enough, that is. During my lovely solo run this morning I realized that at the back of each lick of cool morning air, there was the hint, the promise, of another hot day today. It felt like the aftertaste of dark chocolate with chili, just a lazy touch of slight menace.

Only a few thousand student-written words to grade, some packing and loading, animal chores, finding batteries and driving between us and our annual fall homeschool camping trip. I have loved these since I slept on the ground, eight months pregnant with Thing 2. Back to the beach we go.

It is getting so cool in the Northeast now. It warms up to 70 in the afternoons, but it's been as low as the 40s when I first get up. I've been enjoying early evening runs, when it's down the lows 60s and just starting to get dark. If I had the eyes of a cat I'd go when it got really dark!

Oh, everything sounds fantastic: chocolate-chili runs...beach camping.

I was at the library today and lo, a bunch of Home Education Magazines jumped into my bag.

Camping at the beach sounds really fun!

Oh, sounds like lots of good stuff! You don't have video of the dancing in the sweater, do you? I think it'd be pretty funny to see "The Dance of the FO."

Mmmm...chili and chocolate...must make truffles soon.
