Surely I have mentioned before how quiet the house in on Sunday evening? After a day of various errands, pushing to get the kitchen cleaned up, stopping at the library, I dropped the three off at the train station shortly before 1900.
There is almost a train an hour that runs between Heidelberg and Stuttgart. Last year, usually in the winter, they elected to catch the 17xx train in order to arrive before it was too dark and freezing cold. Since the light is still holding out in the evenings, usually it is the 18xx that is the most appealing.
Tonight they did not want to hurry and took the 1914. Why am I mentioning all of this? Well, it wasn’t the packing that delayed them, more like the fact that we actually sat down for dinner together, followed by a test run of the green nothing foam desert. The vote was decent from two of us, ok but I won’t do it again from a third, and the fourth was sure she had been tricked because she ate it before finding out that it contained something that was on her “I never eat that” list.
George is stateside, starting and ending in New York City with a detour to Rochester in the middle.
The kids and I were able to empty out, clean and reset up one set of shelves in the studio today.
Audio Books & Books
Finished up Hit Parade by Lawrence Block, which certainly is a different sort of story and started one of the Stone Barrington series by Stuart Woods on the car CD.
In hardback, I picked up the Saturday Wife by Naomi Ragen, Absolute Fear by Lisa Jackson, and The Penguin Who Knew Too Much by Donna Andrews. Quite a range of material I think. In Audio – two different books by Alexander McCall Smith.
Completed the first bobbin of singles (that Crown Mountain Farms corriedale pencil roving in Azure Sky) and have started the second. Since I have 2 8oz batches, this is not going to be an overnight project.
no knitting, but am thinking about it…..
