Happy Ash Wednesday! I guess it seems sort of odd to wish someone a “happy” Ash Wednesday, since Lent on a whole isn’t a very cheerful season of anticipation, the way Advent is. And it seems like we JUST finished Christmas a few weeks ago. I am really hoping, after the disaster which was Easter 2011 (D acted like a jerk all weekend) and Easter 2012 (D told me he wanted to separate), that Easter 2013 is a resounding success and a reminder of just why I used to love the holiday so much.
I am working on a Honey Cowl on US 8’s with a skein of Noro Chirimen that my friend Drea bought for me last year at a closeout sale for $5 a skein (I know, Noro for $5! It’s unheard of!). It’s a very soft blend of cotton, silk, and wool — not very stretchy but still nice and soft.
As for what I am reading? Well, of course, The Behemoth, but at over 1,000 pages (including notes and bibliography) it’s not exactly something I take with me to work, so I leave it at home. On my Kindle, I am reading Why You Think The Way You Do: The Story of Western Worldviews from Rome to Home by Dr. Glenn Sunshine, who just happens to be one of my professors. Dr. S. is big into the whys and wherefores of worldview, and the book is (thus far) very good. I’m only into like…chapter five, I think? But I am enjoying it.
