My answers in RED! we go!

1. Old me would need a bottle of wine to get drunk, new me would need half a glass. (that's what having a baby did to me!)

2. My previous answers do NOT look like I'm taking responsibility.

3. a way I may not be all that responsible.

4. But who cares, right?

5. The big difference is I am responsible (but I was before too, I just didn't have a baby to this became way more serious than I expected).

6. Having our family makes me happy.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to seeing Bronwen and David and Marcia and Jesse, tomorrow my plans include Marcia and Jesse's wedding!!!! and Sunday, I want to start exploring Nova Scotia!

Booking Through Thursday: Vacation

btt button
Booking Through Thursday question for October 20,2011: I’m on vacation this week. I didn’t go anywhere exciting or exotic, I’m just not at work. Spending time puttering around the house, playing with the dog and … oh yeah. Reading. A lot.
Do your reading habits change when you’re on vacation? Do you read more? Do you indulge in lighter, fluffier books than you usually read? Do you save up special books so you’ll be able to spend real vacation time with them? Or do you just read the same old stuff, vacation or not?

My answer: Guess what-I'm going on vacation too!!! To Nova Scotia for Marcia and Jesse's wedding (HURRAY) and to see Dave's brother Richard (hurray)! Do my reading habits change while on vacation-yes-sometimes I get to read more, sometimes (like now) less. In the summer I do tend to read "fluffier" books, or books that are "easy reads". Sometimes I will save a book for vacation but I will usually start reading it a day or two before so that I'm already well into it before getting to the airport or my destination. I get distracted quite easily-especially if I'm just starting a book, or not really loving it.  With that being said here is what my vacation reading will look like: I am only bringing my kindle- I have been reading the book The Forever Queen for what feel slike forever-it's really quite good, but it's a long one (which I love) but it's a bit slow so I've "put it to the side" for now and I'm reading a novel called Barefoot-it was actually one of the Kindle Daily Deals that I bought for $1.99. It's a bit on the fluffier side and I'm really enjoying it. I'm not sure how much reading I'll get done-maybe none, or maybe 5hours worth on the plane on the way there if FĂ©lix doesn't sleep-but either way I'll still have a book to fall back on (that I'm already into) should I happen to finish Barefoot.

Knitting: COMPLETED: Spring mobius cowl!!

So remember back in February when I started knitting that awesome scarf? No you don't remember? Well check here if you are interested! Anyways.I finished-last week actually!! I have it worn wrapped twice, it can be worn in just the one loop, but it's too long for my liking.
