I'm joining in with Yarn Along today.
(Sorry about the poor quality photo, I had to take this after dark)
This week I have been trying to get a few rows done on the stripey blanket so I can update the crochet along. I'm slowly getting there, I like to have a bit of a chunk done to post on the crochet along, so am madly hooking away most evenings. Except that this is a time of year when there are lots of things happening in the evenings, eating into my crochet time! Tonight we had an information night at the high school for Max who is starting there next year, it's the end of primary school for him, and for me the end of 11 years of being involved at that school, quite a milestone.
There is also night tennis finals to play in, award nights, a graduation dinner and various other commitments, all good things to be involved with, but I am missing my down time!
As my boys would say, first world problems mum. Laugh.
Anyway, back to the yarn along, I have started 'Hidden Empire' by Kevin J Anderson, the first book in a big sci fi series. I think this will be a good one for the summer holidays, it has nearly sucked me in, I need to read a bit more to really get involved.
I enjoy a good sci fi, so if anyone has any recommendations I'd love to hear them.
One of my favourite sci fi authors is Sheri Tepper, has anyone read her books?
If you like sci fi and haven't read anything of hers, give her a go, I love her stories!
She used to publish a new book each year around my birthday, and Gary would give me a lovely hardcover edition as a present, but I think she might be getting very old now as I haven't seen anything new from her for a few years, I hope she is still alive!
And for something completely unrelated, we had a glorious sunset tonight after a beautiful day, I think tomorrow is going to be very hot, so a bit of slothing in the shade keeping cool might be in order, and very likely a swim in the evening. Looking forward to it already!
Stay cool if you are in Melbourne.
Have a great day!
