yarn along

I flew through Notes From a Blue Bike: The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World in just a few days this week. I have enjoyed Tsh’s blog The Art of Simple for years (originally as Simple Mom). I knew that I wanted to read her new book when it came out and eventually found it on Kindle for quite a good price. It is a memoir of her life in Turkey as a young mom, tracking her journey to the present day and how she and her husband have crafted the life that they dreamed of. There are a lot of great take-aways, not to imitate their life, but to make you stop and think about your family and your life, and if it is how you want it to be. And then, how to tweak it to bring it more in line with what you dream of. It certainly got me thinking.

I haven’t spent too much time knitting, which is why Tea Leaves is still on the needles. I tend to spend more time reading in the summer. But if I get Tea Leaves off the needles before the summer is out, I’ll call it a win.

Linking up with Ginny.

  1. I have recently started following Tsh’s blog as well and am really enjoying it. I have seen her book recommended several time in several places online, and I hope I get a chance to read it eventually!
    I love the glimpse of all that stockinette behind your Kindle – I have a love affair with good, even stockinette. Must be my type A personality! Yours fits the bill!
