I know that part of the reason is that I'm just in a reading funk. I am desperate to find a really good book that I don't want to put down. So if you have any suggestions, I'd love some! In addition, I'm finding that I'm easily distracted with other on-line material. I think I read every story out there about the Penn State scandal and I've also discovered Pinterest which is a huge time drain. Add to that, I've been a single parent for the past four out of five weeks, I've been doing lots of Christmas shopping, and I'm trying to remodel my kitchen. I'm not trying to make excuses, but I'm just trying to explain why my blog is looking a little different this month.
And then there's these other little hobbies which can be just as time consuming for me as reading. As the weather gets colder and the holidays approach, I love to work on craft projects. (I can also blame Pinterest for making me want to try to many new ones.) Just within the past few weeks, I've made the following projects:
|A gorgeous cowl. (This obviously isn't me!)|
|A cupcake hat for Booking Daughter's friend. She doesn't want to part with it!|
|Three yoga mat bags in variegated yarn.|
|Two dozen of these glitter ornaments for gifts.|
|And my favorite.. a sock monkey cup cozy!|
