I think I may be in a bit of slump. I have plenty to blog about, but I just don’t sit down and write it. Or maybe it’s the stress of everyday life spilling over into this aspect of my life. Either way, I hope to break out soon.
• It’s Banned Books Week, as I’m sure you already know by now. I’m not very organized; I wish I was more on top of this. Still, maybe I’ll read a banned book. I don’t necessarily love all the books that have been banned or challenged (well, I haven’t read them all!), but banning books — this is not freedom.
• In the past few weeks I did some much needed bloggy housekeeping: My sidebar now has a few (the most recently updated) posts from blogs I follow, in a few different categories, Bookish Types, Authors, Publishing, and Fibery Goodness. I didn’t want to make the sidebar scroll too long, but I wanted to include a few of each, and I definitely needed to do something in the way of a blogroll, since I hadn’t actually updated my blogroll since I started my blog (more than 2 years ago). It took some finagling to make it work, but I did it! I also did some other cleanup on the sidebar, but it was mostly minor. How does it look?
• I’ve been reading very little the past week. September has been a great month for me reading wise, but now I’m hardly reading at all. I’m spending quite a bit of time knitting (a shawl, a sock, some tiny things) instead; I’m wondering if this is due to the season changing?
• My yarn storage is still in progress (like so many things), but here’s a couple current photos. Hopefully I’ll make significant progress on this front this week; my husband made shelves to fit inside many of the individual boxes, which will require some reorganization but will also allow for much better organization and — the best part? — allow more yarn to fit in the allotted space and still be findable.
Hope you have a restful Sunday!
