A sleeve

Not too exciting, eh? But, I must get the sleeves finished so I can finish the sweater so I can move on to other sweaters.  So one must suck it up and make sleeves, even if they are dull dull dull.

Today is Sunday--yesterday went by quickly although not much was going on. I've been reading "In This House of Brede" by Rumer Godden--recently re-released (apparently). It is about nuns in England, mostly in the middle of the 20th century. I guess Godden wrote a book called "Black Narcissus" about nuns in the Himalayas and she got a bit of push back about not knowing a lot about nuns. So this book was her response.

That story may be apocryphal, but that's what I've read.

I just looked at Wikipedia and there's a TV film of "In this House of Brede" starring Mrs. Peel (aka Diana Rigg). That might be worth watching.

We went to a new restaurant for dinner last night (new for us) with our friends Steve and Jen--Tacovore. They have lots of different types of tacos--I had one with chicken and mole and one al carbon. And chips and guac. And a nice big margarita.

I have tomorrow off (MLK day) and will have half a writing day and half a reading day. We have so many people coming out for job visits I have to make sure I give myself time for writing as this is my official 'writing term' and if I don't keep up I'll big in kind of big trouble with my book project.

Not to put any stress on myself or anything.

The house of Brede sounds fascinating.! Must check into it Kim. At least you have easy peasy sleeves while you get your writing done!
