I was chugging along on the BSJ, maybe not going to make it to my latest goal of finishing by today but still making good progress when tragedy struck. It developed a hole. You can see it here, I delicately hid it in my picture for this post. I'm really bummed that I have these grand designs for finishing things and always get held up. Maybe it's a sign I should just slow down and plug away. Maybe it's a sign I should take a break and work on something else for a bit (like I don't know, finishing the quilt that is sitting in strips on top of my sewing machine.) Hopefully I will get some time this week without the interruption of fights breaking out left, right, and center and get some work done.
As for reading, I finished Holding On to the Air this week. I really enjoyed it. And I got Treasures from the Attic by Mirjam Pressler from the library for my nook. I can't remember whose blog I saw it on but it sounded interesting. It's described as a "non-fiction novel" pulling from letters, poems, and other documents to tell the story of Anne Frank's family before and after war. I'm not very far into it yet but it's so interesting to see how people lived in other times and places.
And now off to add more books to the list to find from everyone who checks in at small things.
