When I was visiting my mom this week, I took a little book to read aloud. I am not sure how much she is following but it is a way for us to engage. Mom used to love reading. She worked for a literacy group for years, helping adults learn to read. She grew up in a home with a library - complete with glass faced, floor to ceiling bookcases. And, she had a mother who wrote. So I thought it would be fun to reread one of my grandmother's books this month. And just for fun, I did a Google search on her name. Imagine my surprise to find that there are copies of her books (self published) on Amazon! I pulled out her memoir - My Roses in December and began to read.
I have a hat on the needles and a cowl just off the needles. I have done so much knitting lately that my elbows ache. I need to do more hand and arm stretches.
