Brrrr

When I got up Sunday it was 0 degrees F (-17.7 C) with a wind chill of -18 F (-27.7 C). Now I know my Canadian readers won’t be too impressed, but that’s cold!

So, the perfect day to come home from church and watch the Bruins come within 45 seconds of a shutout. And knit, of course.

Final score: Boston 3, NY 1.

Other fiber fun from the past couple of weeks:

Setting the twist on some spun and plied BFL.

Felt-o-rama!

Sock in progress.

Winter is the time for books. Curl up on the couch with a good one. (Of course, I think summer’s great for reading too, and spring and fall . . .)

Current reading: picked it up in Nova Scotia.
Recent reads:
  • A Christmas Beginning by Anne Perry — one of her characters from the Pitt mysteries appears here on the Welsh Isle of Anglesey.
  • The Birth of Britain by Winston Churchill — Churchill was definitely a “great men make great history” type of guy, and way into the accomplishments of England. I listened to it on audio and enjoyed it a lot — one of my favorite time periods and places for history.
  • Bodies of Water by J.S. Borthwick — I liked this author’s books The Student Body and The Down East Murders, but this one not so much. The main character was almost willfully ignorant of the bad guy, which readers could see a mile away.
  • I’m currently listening to Barbara Tuchman’s The Proud Tower: A Portrait of the World Before the War, 1890-1914. Guess I’m just in the mood for history lately.

    You should read William Manchester’s biography of Winston Churchhill, The Last Lion. Manchester completed two of the projected three volumes before he died. Great read. If you’d like to borrow it, let me know.
