Mom sent me the prettiest blue yarn with brand new needles and a pattern all together in a new bag, ready to go to knit up a wrap just for me! My very first project that won’t be gifted away!
On the reading front, I just finished The Wives of Henry Oades by Johanna Moran which I picked up since it reminded me of that wonderful old movie about a shipwrecked wife who is stranded on an island with a guy while her husband, who believes she is dead, raises their two children in California. What is the name of that movie???
I like the movie better than Johanna Moran’s book as the movie is a carefree golden age of Hollywood romp while the book ended up being very pedantic and depressing toward the end. Now, the beginning was exciting! It is based on a true story of a lady and her children being abducted by the Maori and given up for dead by the husband who then immigrates to California.
I’ve just started A Woman of Independent Means strictly due to the pretty cover. It was a freebie at the library and I sure do hope it lives up to its cover!
This makes Day #5 of my Post A Day Challenge! Woo-hoo! Are you trying to blog more in 2011 too?
