Decisions, decisions

I'm in a bit of a quandary. Yesterday I had lunch with my former boss from my days at the Attorney General's office, and she brought me a book about Edgar Allen Poe that looks fascinating. When I got home from lunch, a box from Amazon.com was waiting for me with the three books I'd ordered last week. So now I have four new books to read.

But I'm also within inches of finishing my sherbet socks, and my mom gave me these needles for my birthday. I've already knitted the sock onto the new needles, and I love them. They're so pretty and smooth; each time I sit down to knit a row or two, I end up knitting 20.

Then I start thinking about the stack of books, and I'm torn. What am I to do with my few minutes of free time each day - knit or read?

THESE are the only choices? Sleep isn't one of them? Mindless watching of whatever you DVR'd? (OK, drinking is out).

Aha - knit AND read to 'books on tape'!!!

Alternate days.

oooh, those needles are lovely! I covet something fierce. I keep forgetting I want them, and spending my money on yarn.

That's why I'm glad I got them as a present. I would have never bought them for myself.
