squishy souvenir, shout, and snuggly
posted by soe 8:51 pm

Three beautiful things from my week past:

1. Rudi’s camping plans get rained out, so he crashes with friends who happen to be renting a room above a yarn store. He brings me home two lovely purple skeins of Rambouillet wool.

2. As I meander my way down to Screen on the Green, I hear familiar strains emanating from near the metro station. It’s the local trombone shout band, which I haven’t heard since last summer.

3. After Jeremiah and Rudi go to bed, Corey likes to snuggle up on my lap while I sit in the rocking chair. I know he’s really relaxed because he puts his face in my palm and falls asleep.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

booking through thursday: national book week
posted by soe 8:20 pm

Today’s Booking through Thursday assignment should be an easy one:

booking through thursdayIt’s National Book Week. The rules: Grab the closest book to you. Go to page 56. Copy the 5th sentence as your status.

Unfortunately, the closest book to me, Tea: A Global History, ends a chapter on page 56, and there is no 5th sentence on that page.

And while the book I’m currently reading, Diamond Ruby, also concludes a chapter on page 56, it has more than five sentences on the page. Here’s the appropriate one:

“As the front door slammed, Ruby sat very still for a few moments.”

For being located in a really emotionally draining scene, that’s a really dull sentence.
