Reading and Thoughts

I haven't taken part in the Book Journey Monday meme for a while. 

Currently I am reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett

I am part way into it and loving it so far. It is definitely an eyeopener into how in the not so distant past servants were treated.

Something else I found is the Simple Womans Daybook where we fill in the blanks with our personal thoughts

Outside my window... it is a mixture of clouds, blue sky and sunshine

I am thinking... about lunch

I am thankful... for the noisy neighbours being quiet last night

In the kitchen... it resembles a dumping ground and is desperately in need of a declutter

I am wearing... jeans and a shirt

I am creating... some knitting in a little while for the sock journey on Ravelry and a layout for the punky scraps challenge this friday.

I am going... nowhere really this week apart from the school run and a few bits and bobs

I am wondering... if the above will change as it usually does where kids are concerned.

I am reading... see above - The Help by Kathryn Stockett

I am hoping... that aforementioned noisy neighbours will be quiet for two nights in a row

I am looking forward to... getting the knitting out of the way for the sock journey and then I can create my own stuff

I am hearing... the TV and my daughter in the kitchen making her lunch,

Around the house... is too much clutter

I am pondering... doing something about that clutter but only pondering and not actually doing which isn't a good thing :(

One of my favorite things... at the moment is a love of crochet. I've only been doing it a few months but am loving it

A few plans for the rest of the week: maybe decluttering, maybe making a start on decorating but shhhh because I didn't really say that

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...  I've put this one up before on my blog but I absolutely love it.  I have no idea where I found it and I'm not taking any credit for it because it was an image from out there somewhere.

I absolutely loved The Help - best book I've read in the past few years!! Enjoy it! I can't wait until the movie comes out next month! I hope it is well done.

I keep hearing great things about The Help. I guess I need to read it!

I hope your neighbors stay quiet. Bad neighbors are the absolute worst.

My knitting hobby has sadly taken a backseat to my reading habit. One day I'll get back into it...

As celebration for the new Bloggers' Alliance for Nonfiction Devotees (, I'm cheering on everyone's nonfiction reading today. So, yay for the Simple Womans Daybook!

With all those comments about cutter your house sounds like mine. I'm procrastinating too.

What a cute site! I love it! I've really got to pick up my copy of The Help, especially with the movie coming.

Hope you have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop my to see what I've been reading at There's A Book! :)
