books and other random-ness

January 26, 2010

So I’ve been in a reading mood lately and haven’t been doing much crafting…it’s almost too cold in my house sometimes to get myself motivated to craft! Though on Sunday I went to my aunt’s house to watch a football game and did some knitting – I’m making these mary jane slippers that I found on ravelry. However, the one that I made is a little too small *sigh* so I need to take out the last 2 rows and add another row or two…

Anyways…books! yes! I went to the library today (twice actually – school and public) and got 2 books
we have to do a paper for English so one is for that, possibly, One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (I’ve been reading 2 books of Isabel Allende, too, for this paper…and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, but that one is way different from the 2 by Allende that I read/am reading – I need to finish Daughter of Fortune, so I’m going to read this one, too, and possibly The Bonesetter’s Daughter by Amy Tan)
I also got The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde out of the library, it looks like it’ll be a good read ^_^ – I was looking for his book called The Shades of Grey but it’s new so all of the copies were checked out… :/
I also need to finish The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston.
There’s so much that I want to read!!!

Unfortunately I have to go to the dentist tomorrow. dun dun DUNNN!!! (acckkk! I HATE the dentist!!! 😦 )

Anyways, here are some fun pictures:

 Cute Embroidered Hearts: (there’s so much out there about Valentine’s Day that it’s kind of ridiculous, it’s not for another 3 weeks!! lol I don’t mind, tho, cause it means that lots of people are making lots of cute crafty things, like these hearts!)

You’ve probably seen it, but Tim Gunn’s awesome

ok, that’s all I’ve got for the moment!

However I forgot to mention that it’s a new semester for me at school so instead of having advanced photography as an elective, I now have web page design, and I’m really excited!! 🙂 hopefully I’ll be able to make some cool stuff to prettify my blog with 😀
(unfortunately the change in semesters also means that I switch free period and gym for government blechhh 😛 – and yes I would take gym 2 days a week over gov everyday)
