I am officially on spring break at the moment. Well it technically started last week on Thursday when my Psychology class ended for the day. I was supposed to have some homework to do this week for two of my classes, but that is all finished and turned in online, so the only thing that I have to worry about that is school related is studying for a Psychology test that I have next week, and signing up for a class that I have to take over the summer.
Even though it's actually not until Thursday, my family and I celebrated St. Patrick's Day with my dad's side of the family on Sunday. One of the things that I always look forward too when we celebrate this feast day is the amazing Irish Soda Bread that my grandma makes every year. I hate to brag, but it is the best bread ever.
A few weeks ago, while studying at the library, I found a book series that involved knitting called The Beach Street series. While the series was good, it wasn't anything spectacular and what I would be inclined to pick up to re-read often. It is mainly because of the swearing, and how often it was used that turned me off a bit. Since the series is set in England, I had to remember that football for England is actually soccer. Now I am reading another book series that involves knitting, but this time the series involves mysteries and is set in America. When you go from one knitting related book series to another, and they are set in different countries, you have to remember that and not get confused.
From what I've read so far of the first book in the Seaside Knitters Mystery series, it sounds like a good book. I currently have the first four books of the series checked out. I probably would have checked out more of the series, but I didn't want to seem to excited or anything about knitting and reading. Not to mention I didn't have a bag to stick them all in, cause I was at the library doing more homework and there wasn't room in my backpack.
So that I what I have been up to so far folks. Not much, but I felt like my blog warranted a post of some sort. And if I didn't say this in last week's knitting related post, I will post pictures of the blanket that I am working on and the other two projects that I had previously started (if I ever finish them).
