" I may be totally wrong, but I'm a Dancin' Fooo-ooo-ll, Yowza Yowza Yowza..."
I still didn't find the book from 2 weeks ago- it was called "Stuff" and it was about the hoarding phenomenon, and I find it a little ironic that I can't find it.
Which brings me to this week's book, Slipstream, the autobiography of Elizabeth Jane Howard. She's an English novelist, famously married to Kingsley Amis.
I liked this- she married 3 times, failed as a mother to her daughter, and had several love affairs. She is candid, and lived in a time where it was frowned upon for women to persue a career. I have read several of her books, and they aren't sweetly romantic- not that I have a problem with romance, but she understands the human condition, and her characters are all the more interesting. She's 87 now- so a long and interesting life.
The dental visit went well, all things considered. My main problem is my gums, and I now use an electric toothbrush and special toothpaste, in an effort to stop any further damage that I have inflicted by overzealous scrubbing and flossing.
Spinning continues- I am having a blast- and these are from an Etsy seller- Corriedale and BFL-
and from Woolgatherings on Etsy- 2 Polwarth and 1 BFL- I like this seller because her colors are very clear, and the Polwarth is soft and spun beautifully. Love it.
Mr. Kitten-Chow is wookin pa nub in all the wrong places-I guess trying to keep warm in an uninsulated house. Laura is wearing her Peace Fleece sweater. Maybe I should do one for Mr. Man?
