Yarn Along: Wendell Berry and Pie...
I made the first apple pie of the season on Monday night and it has been the perfect pick-me-up in the afternoons. I always choose to make Alicia's Sour Cream Apple Pie and this time I spent some time talking to my sister, Juliana, while I mixed everything up. I wish that she were here to enjoy a slice with me!
As you can see, my knitting hasn't grown much this week. I really love the uncomplicated pattern though... it's nice when a pattern is pretty and easy, isn't it? I really like that I can pick it up whenever the mood strikes and get right back into it.
The children and I started reading The Cricket in Times Square this week... I know that I have read it before but I don't remember much of it at all, so the story is fresh and interesting to all of us. Circle of Friends is just perfect before-bed reading... It is one of my favorite stories! Monday is our library day (it is easy to get there after our son's speech class) and for once I was prepared to dash through the stacks to get a book for myself. I've been hearing a lot about Wendell Berry for a few months and selected Hannah Coulter for my first foray into his work. I'm hoping that The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry will find it's way to me in the next few days... I requested it from another library!
