Quieting Down

It is Sunday evening. The dog and I are sitting here, alone in the house.

It is so quiet that I really hear nothing at all. Our household appliances run quietly, barely a whisper to indicate that the freezer and fridge are functioning. The loudest object is my laptop.

The store at which I bought this kit (personally assembled by the kind saleswoman) is called Strikkedilla, found near the center of Oslo.

Audio Books

Ok, I think it was really late when I finished up Cry No More last night. And I really was going to pull out another book this morning. Instead – I pulled out Bones – which I had heard about, but not seen. I have season 2. Now I need to go find season 1. I have enjoyed all of Kathy Reichs’ books. I don’t think the series is anything like the books, but still…

    I keep meaning to watch Bones. I like the books too but the actors and plot lines don’t seem to add up on the ads I have seen!
