Well dear cousin, I know what you're doing this summer so I thought I would share what I've been up to.
I seem to be in a reading slump. I've tried quite a few books in the past weeks and haven't been able to find anything that really grabbed me. I did take a peak at Rachel Ashwell's latest book - I just love her and her style but found that she's gotten a little too minimalist for me.
On the recommendation of a neighbor's sister-in-law, I'm trying the series by P.C. Cast and her daughter. The first chapter snagged me and now I'm hooked. I've read many of P.C.'s novels and really liked them. This one is from a young-adult perspective but very mesmerizing. Marked by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
When I'm not reading, I'm managing to work on Sophia's birthday sweater. Sadly, this project has taken me almost a year to get this far. I'm not sure why its taking me so long, I really like the pattern - perhaps its not challenging enough? This is the Silver Splash Jacket by Louisa Harding. Here's the ravelry link. More to come on this one.
Jacob has taken up lacrosse! And, he really likes it. Yesterday, in 90 degree heat, he happily suited up.
