I'm looking forward to the new season of The Crown in December, so I was thrilled to spot this little video on my Facebook feed this morning:
On My Bedside Table
I am slowly but surly reading through the Emily of NEw Moon books. They are a pure joy to read... dare I say that I like them even better than the Anne books?
LearningI'm putting the finishing touches on our lesson plans for the new
homeschool year. This piece in the New York Times was timely, as I am hoping to add poetry memorization to our learning time this year: Memorize That Poem.
In My Knitting Basket
It will be no surprise that I have neglected my knitting for over a week now. Whenever things get hectic, my knitting is the first thing to drop off. I'm still working on a third pair of Amelie socks in some charcoal sock yarn that my sister gave me.
I recently came across Lainier Ivester's blog after having lost touch with it for a few years. It was been a joy to read her words again. Though she recently suffered through the tragedy of loosing her home, she has retained her faith and has been able to continue to see the beauty in the world.
