{Yarn Along}

Joining in with Ginny today for her weekly Yarn Along {where reading and yarn are at one with the universe.  As it should be!}  

Really it's about all I've been doing for the last few days, since these pesky germs have decided to invade my body with a vengeance. 

It probably wouldn't have gotten this bad had I listened to my body last week when it was telling me to slow down.  I was in denial.  There were meals to cook, laundry to wash, rocks to be identified, woods to be hiked through, orders to be sent.  You know normal life stuff with a family and small business. 

It really isn't all that bad though, slowing down a bit; knitting and reading.  Knitting always makes everything better, especially with hand dyed merino.  I took it out of the shop and decided to use it myself!  I'm working on a bib design that I'm going to give to our favorite coffee shop waitress.  She's the most adorable looking pregnant woman I've ever met and is about to give birth at any moment!! 

As for the reading, the boys and I have been reading from my mom's childhood book, Let's Read A Story.  It's an anthology of children's stories, including a short story, "Willie's Pockets" by Margaret Wise Brown.

What are you knitting and reading this week?
