Happy Yarn Along! Visit Ginny at Small Things to participate. Leave your link in the comments below as I love to see what you're up too.
I'm late posting today because my mother came over to help me clean and organize. I think she may have saved me from a mental break down. Oliver is extra busy this month between a couple art shows he is preparing for and his brother in the hospital. (By the way, Christopher has had some issues with his speech, but is slowly recovering. Thank you for your kind thoughts.) I am on my own running the show and often have to chose between cooking and cleaning, getting neither done in the end because Miles won't let me put him down. My house was a total disaster! I am feeling so relieved now as I look around my tidy kitchen. Thank you Mom!
Needless to say I haven't had any time to knit. Instead. I'm slowly picking away at the mess Alice has made of my yarn. Kittens! I often find it trailing from one end of the living room to the other. Do you think I need a more secure storage system?
I did finish reading The Omnivore's Dilemma as I only had the last section left. All I can say is that everybody should read this. It is life changing. I asked Oliver to read it. I said, in fact, that I need him to read it. Its a 'marriage' request. I've never called in one of these before, but it will help him to understand the transformation I (and the kitchen) have been going through lately.
Now I'm on to Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat. So far, its full of short, interesting anecdotes about the human-animal relationship and its moral conundrums. It is written from a psychological perspective. I happen to like books written by psychologists. I feel comfortable with the writing style and terms used because I took a lot of psych in my undergrad. However, it is straight forward and clear enough for anybody. Oh, and apparently we really do look like our pets.
I have to share a photo of our delicious dinner. It was inspired by one of the 30 Day Vegan recipes. Remember this basil? We did pesto and slow roasted tomatoes on kumut pasta. Oh my! I was very generous with the garlic, so its a good thing we all ate it.
