I just posted an update on recent projects by Eleanor and myself on the Little House news site, so click on over if you’re interested.

I just finished reading The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman the other evening; every night for months and months I’ve been reading a couple chapters to Eleanor when she goes to bed. So we’re in the weird situation where I’ve read the entire book and she’s read half of every 3rd or 4th chapter or so. Anyway, that’s a very funny and charming book once you’ve gotten down with the 18th century vocabulary. The first chapter threw us off so bad I think it took a couple weeks to come back to it. We got the Penguin edition with the Reynolds painting on the cover, it’s got plentiful endnotes.

Tonight we’re going to make tomato sherbet, wish us luck.
