For my regular visitors, if you find that this blog hasn't been updating much lately, chances are pretty good I've been spending my writing energy on my companion blog. Feel free to pop over to Moving On, and see what else has been going on.

Combined library list

Since we're actually going to make it to the library tomorrow (last week, we were able to just renew everything that was due, as we didn't have time to go to the library at all), I figure it'd be a good idea to actually write out what we have right now.

For myself, I went on another blitz of crochet books.

Blueprint Crochet; modern designs for the visual crocheter. Interesting book, but not a lot that I'd actually want to make.
Crochet Magazine; Nov. 2008 This one had sock patterns I wanted to get a closer look at. All cuff down designs. I prefer toe up.
The Crochet Dude's Designs for Guys; 30 projects men will love. This was was really excellent. Lots of great designs.
101 Double-ended Hook Stitches. I just had to take this one out. Not as complicated as I thought it would be. Not that I've been able to find double ended hooks anywhere.
Afghans for All Seasons and Mosaic Magic; Afghans made easy. Eldest has asked me to make her a blanket for the winter, so I have been taking out a variety of books for her to look at patterns. She decided on one in Afghans for All Seasons. Unfortunately, Mosaic Magic had quite a few pages missing.
Embellished Crochet; 28 stunning designs to make using Caron International yarn. This is one I've taken out before and wanted to check out for ideas again.
Get Your Crochet On; Hip Hats & Cool Caps. Another repeat for me.

I've also taken out a bunch of books for a specific event. I am trying to get together a group of people interested in historical cookery, and for the first attempted gathering, I've decided to do a Brother Cadfael theme. As the character was a soldier and sailor in the crusades before becoming a monk, this would include not only food from England and Wales in the early 1100's, but also foods from the Holy Land.

Cadfael Country; Shropshire & The Welsh Border
Food and Feasts in the Middle Ages
A Taste of Thyme; Culinary Cultures of the Middle East
Feast from the Mideast; 250 Sun-Drenched Dishes from the Land of the Bible
A Biblical Feast; Foods from the Holy Land
Brother Cadfael Omnibus and The Second Cadfael Omnibus
Brother Cadfael's Book of Days
British Food; An Extraordinary Thousand Years of History
Taste; The Story of Britain Through Its Cooking

The next batch were taken out by my daughter's. I'm not quite sure who took out what with some of these! *L*

Nine Crazy Ideas in Science
Classical Kimono; Four Centuries of Fashion
Everyday Fashion of the Twenties; As pictured in Sears and Other Catalogs
Victorian and Edwardian Fashions from "La Mode Illustree"
Brides Sept/Oct 2005
Medieval Structure: The Gothic Vault
England's Thousand Best Churches
Folktales of Ireland

We didn't get a lot of music cd's this time around...

La Dolce Vita; Fellini/Rota (film music)
The Queen Collection played by they Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra presents Symphonic Rock

... but we did get a lot of dvd's. Unfortunately, even with renewals, we haven't had a chance to watch them all.

The Bible's Buries Secrets; Beyond Fact of Fiction. We only made it about half way through this fascinating dvd.
Solar Max; The hottest new film under the sun. Quite interesting!!
Two Fat Ladies Season 4.

Alice; A film by Jan Svankmayer. NOT the Disney version!
Das Boot; The Director's Cut
Intolerance. This 1916 movie is not for the faint of heart.
The Man Who Wasn't There.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers; The original nightmare that threatened the world. This is the 1955 version.
The Edgar Allen Poe Collection: Annabel Lee & Others Tales of Mystery and Imagination. This includes Annabelle Lee, The Raven, and The Tell-Tale Heart

Hmmm... I should probably renew a bunch of these again. Especially the historical cooking/Cadfael ones.
