Online Organization

It's really not as important as IRL organization, but I felt the urge to get my cyber-self all up to date, and now I pretty much have.  Let me know what you think of the new blog look and content:
  • Tabs along the top include "Inspiration," which feeds in from my new Tumblr page that I plan to use to link to anything I run across on the internet that I want to keep for future inspiration!  I also plan to gradually add a few typical bloggy tabs, like the 100 Things, a photo tour of our house, and one or two other things...
  • The list of my favorite blogs to read is still in the sidebar to the right, as usual sorted by newest content
  • I also added a list of links that encompasses every site where I have a presence on teh interwebs.  Check it out!  And if you need some circular bamboo knitting needles, or a computer programming book, or a few other things, check out my Amazon store, where I have already successfully divested myself of a bunch of unneeded house clutter (see previous post) and made a few bucks to boot!
I've also read a couple of books in quick succession, and am started on a third, which is A LOT more reading than I've done recently; also happy to say that 2 out of 3 have been on my Nook!  Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese was amazingly wonderful, and you should definitely go obtain a copy immediately and read it.  One of Our Thursdays Is Missingby Jasper Fforde is the newly-released 6th in his Thursday Next series, and I enjoyed it, but it wasn't my fav.  And finally, I just started Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, which I have managed to protect myself from finding out anything about, because I know it's got some startling stuff in it that would have lessened my enjoyment of the book if I had known ahead of time.  So far I'm loving it, and it's a page-turner just because you have to figure out what the heck is going on in the subtly different world of the novel.  See the Goodreads link in the aforementioned sidebar.

So that's the news of late.  Reading has usurped knitting, although I did also get a portion of my houseplant re-potting done last weekend.  Since Never Let Me Go is my own (e)book and not a library book, perhaps I will intersperse it with some knitting...or crocheting, since I now have a baby shower to prepare for by April 30th!
