Mom Camp

Last weekend I went cabin camping with three of my homeschool mom friends. It was amazing. We hiked. We ate. We drank. I knit. I read. Eventually I just sat. I don’t remember the last time I sat and listened to the world around me.

I needed some time to recharge and relax. We are already planning our next cabin camping trip.

April Reads

I read five books last month. They were fine.

Reclaiming Body Trust by Hilary Kinavey. Don’t read this. Read Intuitive Eating instead. I give this book two out of five stars.

Lessons at the School by the Sea by Jenny Colgan. Boarding school series by the queen of “woman moves to a new place to find herself….and love” genre. I give this book two out of five stars.

My Favorite Half Night Stand by Christina Lauren. The popcorn book I needed. Same plot as all Christina Lauren books, but slightly better written. I give this book three out of five stars.

The Danish Way of Parenting by Jessica Alexander and Iben Sandahl. This is a book that would have been much better in the Readers Digest format. I give this book two out of five stars.

The Down and Dirty Guide to Camping with Kids by Helen Olsson. I’m heading into tent camping season and I need to know more about it before we spend as much time as possible in a tent this summer. This book has great tips, but she shit talks wools socks, so I’m not giving her five stars. I give this book four out of five stars.

I hope I find books that I love in May. April was kind of a dud reading month for me.

Sock It To Me Monday

My mom recently told me how much she enjoys hand knit socks. Mother’s Day is coming up. I did what needed to be done.

I made her a pair of socks out of Kroy. I think she will love them. Now to get them in the mail before the holiday. I still have to mail my niece’s cowl, so it may not happen.
