Ahhh Mid-Winter Break…

Today was my first official day of Mid-Winter Break. Ahhh.

The sucky thing about mid-winter break is that I have way too much time on my hands… so I need some book recommendations. Please please please take a few minutes of your time to recommend some good books! I will love you forever!

I like young adult books, mostly realistic ya books (well, realistic for the characters in the books, obviously not me :() and some dystopia books…. so yeah.

Until next time, Em 🙂

now I have something to do for the rest of winter break

… besides finish my English project. ahem.

Because today, I helped my mom’s friend (who got hurt) package up books to ship off. She’s a book rep, and she receives about 600 pounds of books 3 times a year. And since she’s hurt (she slipped a disk working) she asked me to help her. Woohoo! I lifted 475 pounds of books today. I’d say that’s my workout for the whole week. My back is still sore. But hey, I plan to enjoy my last 3 days, 10 hours, and 58 minutes of break. Yes, I have a timer on my desktop.

I will be spending the rest of my winter break reading the 22 books (plus 5 for my brother, plus a box set of the Graceling series) that I got today. Well, not all of them. I’ve got 6 set aside that I’m hoping to finish soon.

The sad thing is, today was the most fun day I’ve had all winter break. Well, not so sad. Getting 27/30 books in one day (for free) is not sad. Not at all.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Sweater Diaries #7

Today I made a lot of progress on my sweater – I finished the second sleeve, I’m done with half of the body, and I started a matching hat.

I also started the Bach Cello Suite #1 which I am super excited about!

Until next time, Em 🙂

My winter break is definitely going to be a productive one…

During winter break (which starts next Thursday, sooo excited), I’m going to knit a sweater. Let’s see how this goes. Especially since the largest thing I’ve ever made was a hat. Basically all I make are hats. They’re super easy, and I can use up all my old yarn that I don’t want anymore on them, and then I can donate them. Perfect.

Anyways, I found this pattern on Ravelry, and luckily my library had the book in stock! Woohoo 🙂

I’m also going to make a hat with the same color scheme – brown and white – with the same design of snowflakes that are on the bottom of the sweater. So excited!

I’ll do updates every day or so, so you can see how it’s coming along! And its also a good incentive to finish it by the end of break… along with being able to wear it to school!

Until next time, Em 🙂
