i’ve been working on catching up on school work – particularly reading for my excellent young adult literature class – and i’m happy to say, prematurely of course!, that i’m almost there, phew. i’ve been reading (and writing) like a madwoman, but at least the books (for the most part) have been really good YA, a genre i like very much, and books that i had heard a lot about but had never read.
my niece kiyra will be baptised later this month and i’d been trying to decide what to make as a gift. i kept waffling and finally yesterday it just clicked and i decided on erika knight’s beautiful lacy bonnet from her ‘knitting for two’ book that i got our from the library (can i mention again how much i love the l.a. library system – you can get anything!)
it’s a cranky post today so feel free to skip skip away.. [update: but it gets real positive at then end, promise]
hello there! well, as you might have noticed, my secret pal revealed her name to me this weekend and she is none other but the fabulous glamorous sweet-as-can-be (but we already knew that, didn’t we? ) kimberli of www.kimberlinewyork.blogspot.com! i still have two (ahhhh! TWO!! how exciting!) packages winging their way to me—one from new york, one from hong kong (she’s a busy traveling girl so no wonder i got packages from new york, california, and new york!) you all have seen the great goodies i’ve gotten from my secret pal as well as all the comments, but you haven’t seen the many sweet e-mails and just-at-the-right-moment e-cards that just made my day, so once again: THANK YOU KIMBERLI! as you would say ‘weeeeeeeeeeee!’
