The Week So Far

I've been remiss in not writing about Summer Cabin Weekend 2009! A great time was had by all! The weekend included all the ingredients for a great cabin weekend: Farkle, naps, beer, summer sausage, eggs, reading, knitting, kayaking, running, biking, and rain. I know...I know...maybe most people wouldn't include rain, but I think it takes off the pressure to be outside for a bit and allows guilt-free knitting and reading.

Thanks Andy and Lindsey for opening up your cabin to us! We had a great time.

The rest of the week has been, ya know, a week in August. It's been hot and sticky. I tried on what I have of Flair so far and realized mine will not be a double-breasted cardigan. I went a size down because my gauge was off, but now there is no way that thing is fitting over my chest. It will button up the middle like a regular cardigan. It still looks nice though, and I'm loving the Malabrigo I am using. So soft. So pretty. Yum.

I cleaned out my refrigerator yesterday and discovered I have blackberry preserves and quite a bit of beer.

I've been reading a book called "The Evolution of God" by Robert Wright. Why am I reading this? I have NO idea. One day, I got a notice from the library that the book I put on hold was in. Based on the title, I had a vague memory of putting the book on hold, so I went to pick it up. It's huge. Like 500 pages huge. I have a slight memory of seeing the book referenced in a article I read (maybe in Mental Floss?) and must have decided that I'd like to know more about what this guy had to say. I am slowly working my way through it. I tend to read pretty fast, but this book is pretty dense, so I'm trying to take is slow to avoid re-reading too much. I hate when I get to the end of a paragraph and realize I have no idea what I just read.

I've become totally addicted to "Radio Lab", a show from WNYC. David and I both listen to this on our iPods. I actually listen to this while out running. We call it the science version of "This American Life". I can't get enough. I haven't read this yet, but I am going to.

I've completely given up on trying to listen to knitting podcasts.

And that has been my week so far.
