Reading Not Stitching
Sad to say there was no time for stitching this week. I had a business trip to Atlanta most of the week - at least it was warm there (it was only in the high 40s here in Chicago - brrr). I rarely take stitching with me when I travel on business, as I always think I will have the opportunity to stitch but I've learned that it just never happens. I did start reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle on my Kindle, and so far I'm enjoying it. When I got home, I picked up a book that my friend Amy recommended - The School of Essential Ingredients.
I loved this book - it's about a cooking class taught by a restaurant owner and how the act of cooking with others affects all of their lives. It's worth it for the descriptions of the food alone, but I also really enjoyed the story. It's a fast read (I started it late last night and finished it by noon today) and it's thoroughly enjoyable if you like to cook or eat.
