I love Wednesdays!
My current yarn crafting project is a shrug for Jenna for the warmer months. I'm using Rico Kids Essentials Aran, and I just can't believe it's acrylic, it's so lovely and soft and non-squeaky. And it's very washable, and also cheap! Two balls will make this, in eyelet lace. I think I've got the hang of it now.
I just finished reading Lavinia by Ursula Le Guin, a gentle beautiful tribute to Vergil's Aenid, what a fabulous evocative book. I am in love with every thing Le Guin has ever written though, so not surprising I can rave about this book all day.
I started something by Raymond Feist simply because there are a LOT of his books in our library. But I'm struggling to get into it at all, I can't say I'm taken with it... A bit Tom Clancy meets Terry Brooks. ;) I might be able to enthusiastically retract that statement by next week, of course!
Today we went swimming, as we usually do on Wednesday. I knitted all the way there and all the way back, one whole 7 row lace repeat! We met Emma, Chris, and Connor today, and had lunch together afterwards.
My babies always fall asleep on Chris, they seem to find him very restful to be around. :)
(I made those purple tartan trousers for Morgan when she was that size!)
Connor was fearless. Poor Em didn't know whether to laugh or cry when he got all the way to the top of the 10ft climbing frame and *bounced* on the ropes! Ack, it's not fun for mamas when these toddling people push the boundaries of what we feel is safe for them!
The only stress for me in today was when the manager at the pool didn't want to let us in with so many children (!) because their rules only changed this year to allow more than one child in the pool with a parent. *sigh* Jenna cried, and I was on the verge of making a scene at the reception desk, but they couldn't have been more apologetic when we were proved right about the adult/child ratio! I could rant a bit about health and safety rules, but I won't, after all, we had a simply beautiful day in the end...
