Since my last update:
I finished reading Guilt by Degrees by Marcia Clark. I enjoyed it every bit as much as her first novel. Now I just have to wait a long time for the next book in the Rachel Knight series.
I started The Yard by Alex Grecian. This is a wonderful historical mystery set in 1890’s London. It features several characters associated with Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad. I’m very impressed with this debut. If my mythical plan for today works out I’ll finish this one today. I’ll definitely be passing this one along for The Hubster to read. I think he’ll enjoy it too.
Next up for me is another Graphic Novel. I enjoyed my first foray into this realm with The Drops of Gog, vol. 1. My next one comes highly recommended by several of my bookish twitter friends. It’s called The Unwritten and it’s written by Mike Carey with artwork by Peter Gross. The story sounds interesting. After that I’m not sure what I’ll read but I’ve got several in the want/need to read soon section of the TBR piles.
As for audio, I’m listening to One Dog Night by David Rosenfelt. I should finish this one up this week. It’s another enjoyable Andy Carpenter story wonderfully narrated by Grover Gardner. This will actually put me up to date with this series which was one of my targeted series for 2012.
Other than books and reading:
It was nice to have an extra day of weekend last week. We pretty much just relaxed and enjoyed it. Short work weeks always leave me confused about what day it is and always seem to have a full week’s worth of work to be accomplished.
I really haven’t been doing much other than work, reading and knitting this week so it’s probably a good time for a projects update.
I haven’t done much knitting on my sweater the past couple of weeks.
I started a new class at my local yarn shop this week. It’s just a two session class for a lace sampler scarf. I haven’t actually started the scarf yet. This is my first attempt at knitting lace patterns so for the first class we just did some practice with a couple of the patterns in the scarf. This approach is good for me. I like getting a chance to get familiar with the patterns with some practice yarn before I actually start the scarf with the good stuff.

And for this week’s gratuitous Abby photo is one I took last weekend. I had the iced tea maker going and she was very intrigued. It was making noises she hadn’t heard before and every few minutes the ice would shift around on it’s own.
Hope you’re having a great weekend.
