I just finished knitting the Rubble for Layla in pink . An easy quick knit once I found time to sit and actually knit it. I have to block it and sew the seams and with my tendency to procrastinate on this kind of tasks it might take a while. In the meantime I cast on the Gap-tastic cowl. I had seen a similar cowl in a store but I didn’t like the visible seam so I made one for myself. My very first knitted item made by me for me selfish no ;o)
I picked up The Tiger’s Wife twice at the bookstore, I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not. I should have left it! I kept reading chapter after chapter thinking I would get why she got such raving reviews. I finished the book but I still don’t get it. The quality of the writing was evident but the story was hashed and I couldn’t understand where it was going. Obreht has skills, her descriptions, her world… It’s just that I couldn’t stitch the chapters together, the story lacked a thread.
I now started Getting things done by David Allen.Taking care of the children and managing a house was already a full time job but now with work added on top of that I felt the need to improve my organizational skills. For the past months or so I have been fighting the tyranny of the urgent. I lay at night in bed making endless lists and forgetting even more things. From reading 3 chapters so far I feel this book will give me tools to organize my work/life better.
How about you?
