Well, it's Wednesday again and time to report to Julia, Head Desker Extraordinaire, at the Stamping Ground. Not that there's been too much going on here this week. It wasn't the nasty bug bite on my arm, see this post here, that's prevented me from crafting. No. It was the meds the doc prescribed ... one induced sleep, the other induced - no, I won't go into the gruesome details but, suffice to say, I feel grim!
However, it's not been all bad news - there's a new addition to my desk.
couple of cards with the misted offcuts seen on last week's desk shot. Here's a pic of the storage as it looks when empty.
And that brings us to books I've listened to over the last week. Not many, actually.
This one, written by Kate Jacobs, appealed to me because I go to a craft club - it's not exclusively a knitting club but some of the ladies do knit - so was intrigued to know whether they have anything in common with the ladies of the Friday Night Knitting Club. I won't give any spoilers but it was an entertaining read. All that chat about the merits of luxury yarns got me reaching for my needles.
This was altogether a different read - non-fiction this time. The author Will Schwalbe's mother has cancer and is dying. She's an avid reader, as is he, so they start their own 'book club' with a membership of just the two of them. It's about the joy of reading and how good it is to share that joy with others. I found it an inspiring read.
This is the book I'm listening to as I write this post. It's typical John Grisham - a legal thriller. this one features a two partner law firm who take on a major pharmaceutical drug company. I'm finding it good listening - there's humour in the characters and the legal machinations they are involved in.
Okay, that's me done for this week. Hopefully my desk will have seen more action by next week.
In the meantime, take care and have a great week.
