unraveled wednesday | 12.19.18 …



I woke up this morning filled with energy:

  • zip zap –  strip the bed linens …
  • gather and sort laundry …
  • prep chicken tenders  for baking …
  • fix tea for MSQT

Whew! That was a lot and all before 7:00 am. Despite frost on the rooftops, the sky is bright blue and sunshine pretty much all day. Later today, Norman has a medical appointment; perhaps that’s why I was so gung-ho earlier.

My Christmas knitting project proceeds; I think I’m about/near the halfway point. I am learning intarsia (which is probably why I stopped knitting this many, many moons ago). I don’t expect to finish this by Christmas – why rush? Perhaps the first week or so in 2019? When is just a word; the goal is to finish. Stay tuned.

I mentioned yesterday that I’m still reading (via ears) Becoming. Next in my queue: The Library Book.  On New year’s Day, I’m hosting our bi-monthly (give or take a day/week) Recent Reads gathering; it also happens to be friend MT’s birthday. She requested that we all read the same book – we normally don’t – and we agreed. The book has received rave reviews! Have you read?

I’m 99% sure I will be listening to the book since I have Audible credits. There’s not a copy to be borrowed from either of the two library systems I use.. The hold queue is long! I’m debating about reading the Kindle version and syncing it with the Audible version… Any thoughts? Whatever, I guess I’d best get a move on if I intend to join in the discussion.

Both the washer and dryer have signaled cycles have ended; probably a cue for me to end this post and move on with the next item on my agenda. Joining Kat and friends here.

  1. It’s great to wake up with so much motivation! I haven’t read The Library Book, but I always think that a long line of holds bodes well for the book. It does sound interesting. I would probably listen to it; when I look at my goodreads statistics I listen to audiobooks for almost 70% of my reading. Otherwise I wouldn’t get any knitting done. I hope you enjoy the book however you read it, and have plenty of energy tomorrow!


    1. I hope I have enough energy tomorrow, too…going to spend some time with friends and who needs a tired soul?I am a “wannabe someday knitter;” maybe if I listened to more books, I’d improve my knitting skills…


  2. I’m in the long queue on Overdrive for that book! It does look good.

    Mornings – funny how some you wake up with all that energy and other days it seems like it’s all I can do to get the coffee started – lol.


  3. I am also in the long wait line for The Library Book. Your Christmas stocking looks like it is coming along nicely. I like your statement – when is only a word. Amen. Enjoy the knitting.


  4. I can’t believe that’s your first intarsia project – it looks great! Look forward to your review of The Library Book. I’m on the list … and should be getting it sometime next year 🙂


  5. I started listening to Becoming yesterday and I absolutely love it! Listened for over 2 hours while I cooked and organized. I haven’t read The Library Book yet, but it’s on my radar. I’m a fan of Audible plus Kindle when I need/want to get a book finished more quickly. I wish I’d had your energy; you did all that before I ever got out of bed. Twice this week, I’ve slept in until nearly 7:00. Unheard of, but I was tired, and am now feeling much more energetic. Good thing as I have a lot of baking and several appointments in the next few days.
