Hiatus

I've taken a bit of a blogging and knitting hiatus. A week and a half ago I knit an entire row wrong. 203 stitches to undo. I finally undid them, but then half of them are twisted so, now I have to untwist them. It really isn't that big of a deal, but I've been reading a lot instead. I've read Equal Rites, Wyrd Sisters, Witches Abroad and Hogfather. They are all Terry Pratchett novels, quick reads and very silly. I'm still listening to Vanity Fair when I do knit. Librivox.org is such a wonderful thing. Yesterday I started reading Monstrous Regiment, another Terry Pratchett and The Prestige by Christopher Priest.

The most exciting thing is that I have started spring cleaning/reorganizing. It is always daunting because we are not very good housekeepers and there are two cats, a dog, a 3 year old and two untidy adults.

I'm supposed to meet some friends at the zoo in twenty minutes, so I guess I had better go. Sometimes I find it easier to write the blog as if it were a letter or email to someone.

Oh, spring cleaning, what's that?

I don't even do winter cleaning.

Reading sometimes swoops me away with it as well. There are those books that you just can't put down, or at least you can't imagine doing anything else than reading them on your spare time.

I really like Monstrous regiment with it's feminist perspective on war. But I know that this book has really divided opinions at least with my friends.

Good Luck with your spring cleaning! It's always a pain, but worth it in the end. :)
