This past couple years I have had to deal with pain in my right hand when knitting. So I have been doing very little. The slippers I just made was taxing and so disappointing cause knitting is something I love to do and here it is more pain than pleasure. Knitting is the first thing I learned and has been my go to handwork.
even with that said, I will not give it totally up.
I had started this when in California for my daughter and I'm back at it.
Mine is not in pretty colors like this.
Mines are in earth tone colors.
The cats will love it.
Now for the books.
I gave myself a goal this year of reading 25 books.
Well I'm a little short of this goal.
Right now on number 23 and do not believe I can have 2 more books read in a couple weeks. But that's OK. there is next year
This is the second book in "The Mitford Years" series.
and so loving it. Its a sweet read that makes me wished I was there knowing those people in the book.
(of the first book)
It's easy to feel at home in Mitford. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are generally lovable.
Yet Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won't go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that's 60 years old.
Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich, provincial comedy in which mysteries and miracles abound.
Don't miss out on the rest of Father Tim's adventures in Mitford.
