After spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME the past few days working on it, I now have a "real" banner for my blog! I've been blog hopping, looking for ideas and inspiration for what to do with mine for a while. I'm very much limited by my ability and knowledge of how things actually "work" here in blog land. Of course, there ARE people out there you can pay to design these things for you, but I'm a real DIY kind of woman. I will say, trying to figure it all out has been a great teacher and I've learned a lot. But, it's been a very slow and "trial and error" process. For now, this is what I have. It's better than the text title only I had before, but I'll probably be tweaking more from time to time!
I've just completed Elizabeth Berg's new book, THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU. It's a light read and somewhat predictable. The story follows several "sixty-something" year olds as they approach their fortieth high school reunion. Each coming with different expectations and life situations, the events of the actual reunion are not what was anticipated by any of the classmates. It's a story of second opportunities, and of how people are changed after forty years of life's lessons. Take it with you for a vacation read, but it probably won't stay with you much beyond your return home.
I've just started a scarf with these yarns. I know, I know...crazy to be knitting a wool scarf in August. It's a compulsion. I ALWAYS need something on my knitting needles. This is going to be finished quickly, so hopefully I'll show it to you in a couple of days.
Enjoy your week.
