Random Wednesday

The past couple of days have been very productive. Finished one project, got one sock done and knit about 30 inches on the prayer shawl. Unfortunately no pictures because I was gone all day and just got home about an hour ago. It's amazing how much you can get done when you don't have men anyone to clean up after. I've spent 18 years terrorizing impressing the younger adult male about the importance of cleaning up as you go. Aside from his hellhole bedroom, he's pretty good about it.

Older adult male got home today for a couple of days of work before he heads back up north to kill more fishes and do the male bonding thing. Surprise, surprise, he didn't unload his vehicle into the living room as usual.

Probably because he didn't unload the vehicle at all since he's going back up there. I guess we'll look forward to that Sunday when he's home for the long haul. Still, it was good to see him however briefly. He gets so little time off that I'm happy he gets this extra vacation time and can spend it doing things he enjoys.

Had the newspaper interview today. I have to confess that I had a great deal of trepidation about it. The topic of homeschooling can be so controversial. I was pleasantly surprised by the tenor if the interview though. One of keen interest and nothing controversial at all. I don't know if they will print the article, but it was a good experience for Zach. I will keep everyone apprised though. If they print it I will be sending everyone to their website. Me, I'll have a dozen hard copies though.

Finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix today. Audiobook version. I had a lot of time in the car this afternoon (during which time I knitted on the prayer shawl.) I do enjoy that time spent in the car. Although I may not enjoy it as much when it's frosty, for now it's nice to sit in the parking lot listening to an audiobook and watch the stars through the moon roof while knitting. It's even nice in the afternoon although the honking Canada geese made me nervous enough flying overhead that I closed the sun roof. Goose droppings iz huge.

Off to preparing for bed. Tomorrow will be much laundry on the line and hopefully some spinning.
