I found this amazing yarn that I am getting all crazy about at Michaels. It was on sale, I think it was $1.99 or something insane like that and I just can't stop tying it on stuff. I don't really troll the yarn there, but my middle child needed some neon orange yarn (does this exist? we couldn't find any) and I found this in the hunt. It's called "flaunt" by Loops & Threads.
Unrelated, I finished The Snow Child and liked it so much. It was odd reading it on Maui because it takes place in Alaska. I also did that thing where I read a bit too much about the author right after I finished it. Like seconds after I finished it, dang internet, and so I wasn't able to just sit with the story for a while, which I should have done. It's a quiet and still story and tearing the curtain back to learn all about the author ripped me out of it all too abruptly.
I'm now reading The Great Gatsby, because—well, you know why. I want to at least have a recent framework for when I see the film. I haven't read it since highschool. I remember the story, but not the writing. This was also true for me reading Lolita again a few years ago for a bookgroup. I remember reading it in highschool (not for a class, of course, but on my own) but it may as well been a different book. It makes me want to reread so much.
Happy Mother's Day! I'm having strawberry shortcake right now.
