Smile – Lily Allen(I always smile when I hear it. I may also sometimes giggle to myself when listening closely to the lyrics.)
My daughter’s school library threw up and there are books everywhere. I know what you’re thinking… “It’s a library, aren’t there supposed to be books everywhere?” The last two years I’ve helped out with the book swap. It’s a very cool project, all the kids bring in the books they don’t want anymore and for every book they bring in they get a book dollar and with those dollars they get to “buy” new to them books. This year I was asked to head up this project, and because I love books I said “YES!” It’s a huge project and so far we’ve gotten over 1,000 books, every single one of them has to be counted and sorted through and separated into different categories. Did I mention that yesterday was the first day that we started collecting books. *Whoa* I need a nap.
On the knitting front… I am oh so close to finishing my mom’s stole! I am half way through my last diamond repeat, and then I have the final diamond and then the edge! Approximately 50 more rows to go and it will be comeplete, then I have to block which is always a thankless task but the results make it oh so worth it. I predict come Monday there will be a finished arctic diamonds stole. YAY!
