What shall I do with my summer?

Now that summer vacation is over, I can get back in the swing of things. What, may you ask, counts for swinging around here?
  • Finishing a second Elderberry sock in Wildfoote
    (done, 6/28)
  • Work on the remaining 30 rows of the Faroese Shawl
  • Read David Copperfield
  • Read Merchant of Venice
  • Read lots of Genesis and other accompaniments to Precept's Genesis 4 study
  • Forge valiantly onwards into Greek Verbs (the next chapter is Contract Verbs. I dislike them, since I haven't mastered them. I also dislike any small word that has more meanings than letters.)
  • Practice harping away. On a harp.
  • Garden/housekeep/cook/laundry/pay bills/etc
  • Classical Writing stuff
  • Plan for the upcoming school year
  • Other craft stuff (such as finishing A's quilt)
  • (starting mid-July) Euclid!
With a to-do list like that, who needs boredom? Certainly not me. I'm sure I've forgotten some things, but hopefully not too many. Learning to bake gluten-free bread should probably be there, as my husband has discovered that he does not get along with wheat gluten. Ever since we married, he thought it was a lactose problem ... and now it's looking like a gluten issue instead. I get to enter a new world of Potato Flour, Xantham Gum, and Arrowroot Powder. Good thing I like rice!

No pictures today. My finished sock looks much like the first finished sock, pictured in last week's blog. Tune back next week to see if I've got evidence of a Finished Faroese Shawl laying around the blog.

Maybe your DH should be tested for celiac? Hope he feels better, and good luck cooking gluten-free!

I have one thing for you to add to your list of things to do.

: )

Please add a little audio player to your blog so I can hear some harp. I would love to hear you play.
