I am currently crocheting a basket to contain baby toys in my bedroom, and reading A Mother's Rule of Life. I'm not totally convinced about how the basket is turning out, but it will be functional, and use up some extra yarn that was just taking up storage space. A Mother's Rule of Life is interesting so far. Her solutions are not going to be my solutions, but she seems to do a good job of formulating useful questions. It's also an enjoyable read.
