What I'm Up To

You might have noticed that I don't post about my own life very much. Well, here's a bit of what I've been doing.....
What I'm reading:
Susan Wise Bauer writes so well, it's engaging as well as thorough. The timelines are also very helpful.

I've barely started this one. It came with my logic curriculum and I think it will be a great (albeit slightly dry) read.

What I'm knitting:
This is a pattern from one of my vintage books. Since I'm not very good on the needles, I chose something rather simplistic. One thing I like about knitting in the round is that I never have to turn my work. It's been so much fun, I'll probably make another pair out of angora or mohair once I finish these ones.
What I'm sipping:

Yama Moto Yama has been making fine Japanese teas for upwards of 300 years, and they sure know what they're doing. I drank a lot of festive, flavorful teas over the holidays, but lately I've been craving a milder, more understated taste. Made with green tea and brown rice, this is just the right one. Not sweet, strong, or spicy, just soothing. And perfect accompniment for my reading and knitting.

Love the gloves, love history, and love the smell of the rice tea (although I can't say I'm fond of the taste).

It was a spam comment. Nothing important.
