Go Team Girl, Birthday Swag, More Booklove

NEWS FLASH

So the big reveal Tuesday was drum roll please a girl, bringing the Iknead grandgirl total to four. Her name is Charlotte Faith, Charlie for short. The name Charlotte carries special significance for me as it was my mom’s name. Charlie is expected to make her debut this August and Mr. Iknead and I are once again over the moon excited to add another precious grand to our collection.

BIRTHDAY SWAG

The Stuttgart branch of the Iknead family got me this guy, along with everything I needed to make him feel right at home.

I’ve named him Snoopy.

The Little Rock branch of the Iknead family got me this, which I’m planning to try out today.  Don’t cake pops sound fun?

BOOKLOVE

I’m rereading In the Sanctuary of Outcasts by Neil White and am loving it just as much as I did the first time around.  I also downloaded a new library book yesterday, The Scar Boys, by Len Vlahos.  OK, I’m coming out of the closet with this one – I admit it, I love Young Adult Fiction.  There, I said it, my secret is out and I’m glad.  🙂

ON THE NEEDLES

I’ve finished the first Kew sock and cast on the second last night.  Since this pattern has kicked my fanny in the past, I’m glad to say it appears to have been conquered and is now marching to the beat of my drummer.

I love my past.  I love my present.  I’m not ashamed of what I’ve had, and I’m not sad because I have it no longer.  Colette
