Knitting: Seems like I am only knitting socks these days... And I guess I am. It's something calm and soothing about having a pair of socks on the needles. This is another pair of Blueberry Waffle socks - a great pattern if you want to have a mindless knit, but want to knit something else than a rib.
Drinking: A new favorite tea - Raspberry Rendezvous.
Reading: In the Shadow of the Banyan by Vaddey Ratner. I really like this book, and the fact that it's based on a true story, just makes it better!
For seven-year-old Raami, the shattering end of childhood begins with the footsteps of her father returning home in the early dawn hours bringing details of the civil war that has overwhelmed the streets of Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital. Soon the family’s world of carefully guarded royal privilege is swept up in the chaos of revolution and forced exodus.Over the next four years, as she endures the deaths of family members, starvation, and brutal forced labor, Raami clings to the only remaining vestige of childhood—the mythical legends and poems told to her by her father. In a climate of systematic violence where memory is sickness and justification for execution, Raami fights for her improbable survival. - From Goodreads -
