Relaxing at Night
April 20, 2012
Recently, I have started knitting again. I decided that instead of wasting my time playing Facebook games at night, I would actually create something. I have been doing pretty well at it if I say so myself. So far, I have completed a pair of socks (a new skill for me), a stole, two headbands, a cover-up, and a cowl. And while I knit, I listen to audiobooks on my MP3 player.
For some reason, I have been in a Classics mood lately. I think part of it is that I found that OneClickdigital (one of our two digital audiobook sources) has so many choices for Classics on audiobook. And not only do they have them, but they are read by very good narrators. I have made my way through all the Jane Austen’s (the last time I tried Pride and Prejudice on audiobook, the narrator was so flat I couldn’t finish listening to it) The Scarlet Pimpernel, and now I am on to the Anne of Green Gable series.
It is so pleasant to sit in my chair and knit at night while listening to the trials and tribulations of others. That is until my husband, children or dog need me. Or, I have to clean or cook. But for a little while, I can drift off into my own little world, surrounded by yarn and stories and relax.
