Some Things: An Update

1. When we finally ventured out after TS Irene blew through, we discovered a tree down on our street:

Thankfully, it was considerate enough to fall away from the wires. We would have certainly lost power if it had fallen the other way.

2. Today, I made one of these:

What is it, you ask?

A Kindle cover for my new Kindle (which arrived just this week)! I used this pattern from Etsy and I am so happy with it. I am also happy with my Kindle. Now I can take all my books wherever I go, and in a stylish cover too. I love living in the future!

3. I have a bunch of stuff on the Kindle, but right now I am reading Boneshaker by Cherie Priest. Steampunk/Zombies=awesome!

4. I have made serious progress on my sister’s shawl! I have only half repeat of the tiny triangles left to go! And then it’s on to the edge! I’m so thrilled and excited I can’t tell you. No pictures, right now though. It still looks like a blue blob.

5. It’s Labor Day weekend! Thank a union.

  1. Looks like a great project! And I love the screen you have up on the Kindle… it seems appropriate having such an old-looking book page on a new device. :)

  2. We had a bunch of trees fall from TS Lee. No power for 3 1/2 days and no school for the kiddos, either. Fun times in the Bubblesknits household. lol Not to mention the lovely generator fire. I’ll be glad to see the end of hurricane season.
