...only 18 days until Harry Potter comes out in the theater - which means it's time to re-read The Deathly Hallows (what a fun task!)
...just finishing Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. Excellent, rich book. So great, especially if you love all things England & Tudors. Might make you hungry for baked mushrooms in cream.
...dying to get More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. I am still the world's worst knitter, but it doesn't stop me from enthusiastically starting (and subsequently abandoning) a new knitting project about every other week.
...did you know that you can take free college classes online (not for credit, but for personal benefit) from lots and lots of universities? I just finished a great one from my alma mater BYU (here's the link to the list of their free classes) - and here is a link that will take you to a list of other universities' classes, including Tufts, Stanford, Berkeley, and MIT. So awesome!! I think I'm going to start this one next. The best part of course is that there are no grades and no deadlines - it's all for the pure pleasure of learning. I love it.
