St. Joseph the Worker by Ade Bethune

St. Joseph the Worker by Ade Bethune

My husband is the last one to catch this horrible cold/flu and we are in the various stages of recovery.

Today is May 1, the Optional Memorial of St. Joseph the Worker. Lately I’m not getting much work done other than meals on the table and keeping up with laundry. It’s only BARELY, though, so don’t think I’m bragging here.

I need to invoke St. Joseph here for a bit more energy so I can get things done. I’m embarrassed to have the A/C repairman come in the state the house looks.

My reading is scattered all over the house. Nothing is very meaty. Homemade with Love: Simple Scratch Cooking from In Jennie’s Kitchen is lovely eye-candy with beautiful photographs and lovely recipes. I’m not sure I can use too many for the whole family since we try to be wheat, eggs, and dairy free for our family meals because of one son’s allergies, but some will work.

Made from Scratch: Discovering the Pleasures of a Handmade Life is light reading, with personal stories of how she started her Handmade Life, but then after her story, she gives some quick guides on setting up. So far I’ve read through gardening, chickens and bees. Delightful! Easy to read especially with pounding headaches.

The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life is one that has been recommended by other friends on their blogs, and so I thought I’d give it a try. I haven’t cracked it yet.

I’m still knitting the First Communion Capelet for my niece. I hit a snag last week and had to frog a bit and correct the mistakes. It was a stupid mistake, but it would have bothered me forever. I think I need 6-10 more inches to knit. My other projects have been shelved until I finish this one. My poor mother won’t get her Mother’s Day shawl in time, but I think she’ll understand.

What are you knitting or crocheting right now? Join Ginny to share and read other Yarn Along posts.
