Summer is slipping away and signs of fall are starting to show in the temperatures I’m feeling and the leaves I’m seeing. Let’s do a what’s-happening-around-here update.
Reading: Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney. Spoiler alert: I don’t love it.
Knitting: Dale’s Musselburgh hat. I thought I might have it finished by this week but I’m not quite there yet. Soon, though. And then I’ll be picking up my Iceland Cardigan again.
Watching: Only Murders in the Building, season 2. It’s so good and I’m bummed that we are almost finished.
Cutting: dahlias and zinnias for as long as I’m able.
Eating: tomatoes and cucumbers from our garden while they last.
Arranging: fall décor in the house, pumpkins and faux foliage and candles. It’s all so cozy and I love it.
Planning: One last camping trip. I don’t want it to be cold but I won’t be sad if it’s sweater-weather.
Learning: To modify yoga poses to make them work for my body. It’s something I never considered before (I thought if I got good enough at yoga that I wouldn’t need to modify) and it’s blowing my mind at the difference this makes.
Ordering: The 2022 Wine Advent Calendar from the NPR Wine Club. I wasn’t going to get it this year and then I saw it and . . . I caved.
Enjoying: The Read With Us Book Club so very much. Thank you to everyone who participated this month, or ever. And if you haven’t because you’re uncertain or shy or anything like that, please give it a try. We’re very very easy to be with.
Unsubscribing: from as many emails as possible. I don’t have a clue how I got on some of these lists but I am a serial unsubscriber.
And that’s all I can think of today. Hope all is well in your little corner of the world.
