Keepin' Busy  
It seems like I've been really busy lately, but I'm not sure doin' what...
  • I've been knitting lots - I'm working on a pair of socks right now, and I've the yarn for another pair coming in the next week or so. Those, I'm looking forward to - I'm going to be doing Viper Pilots in a dark blue yarn shot with silver, IndigoDragonfly's Shiny, in Tardis - I think they'll be gorgeous, but I'm not sure they'll be exactly high-wear. Kim (indigodragonfly) appears to have graduated from the OPI school of colour names, and half the attraction of the yarn is the names. Plus, it's very schooshy!

  • I've been reading lots, too. According to my Goodreads library, I've read 26 books so far this year, so I'm averaging two a week. My Kobo really seems to be upping that book count. I'm currently actually reading a hard copy book, now, though - I'm re-reading Jean Auel's Shelters of Stone before reading her new book, The Land of Painted Caves.

  • I've also, this week, been watching Ken Burns' The Civil War - PBS is re-broadcasting it right now, and I've never seen it. It's fascinating to watch, and a little horrifying. I don't think I ever realized how bloody that war really was; the fact is that it seems like the North spent the first two years snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, making the war last a lot longer than it needed to.

  • I've also started watching Castle - I've watched the first season, and I loved it! For a show about a murder cop, I end up with a smile on my face an awful lot. *g* Beckett's competent and smart! Castle's a wise-ass and smart! Plus, Castle's actually a good parent - how weird is that? He's, like, Keith-Mars-level good!

  • The return of sunshine makes everything better - I feel a little less like hibernating, and I'm watching my garden for changes daily. The lilacs are almost ready to start showing leaves, and the hyacinths and tulips are coming up nicely.


Heh. So that's a list of a bunch of the stuff I've been meaning to post, but haven't quite gotten around to...
