There’s a few things going on around here, seems like a good time for a right now post. Here’s what’s happening – right now –
Drinking: Wine, of course. And martinis, too. But on Halloween I made this pretty bourbon and apple cider cocktail. It was deeeelish.
Knitting: Socks. I went to a new yarn shop the other day to get yarn (duh) for the March Through Time knit-along and while I was there I picked up a skein of sock yarn. Now. I have no business buying sock yarn. And yet I did. And I cast on as soon as I got home. Maybe I’m uninspired by sock knitting because I’m uninspired by all of my sock yarn. That would be a real shame since I have a pretty amazing collection of sock yarn.
Reading: The Secret Chord by Geraldine Brooks. She’s a brilliant writer but I’m not so sure about the subject this time. I’m giving it another 50 pages or so before I decide.
Planning: All of the places we’re going to eat while in Las Vegas. I told you about Las Vegas, right? Doreen and Jo-Ann and I leave tomorrow for our combined 50th birthday trip. Woo hoo!
Remembering: How in love I was with Donny Osmond. I hope when I see his show (yes, we’re going to see Donny & Marie in Vegas) that he’s as dreamy as I thought he was when I was 7. I was going to grow up and marry him, you know.
Contemplating: Whether to bring the big camera on my trip. I’m thinking no on this and just the iPhone will do.
Writing: Blog posts through next Wednesday. I’ve decided to get them all done so I don’t have to try and blog from Vegas. It’s a bit of work on this end but I think it will be worth it for the confidence in knowing I won’t miss a day of NaBloPoMo.
Enjoying: Mystery Show, a podcast from Gimlet Media. Starlee Kine is the host and she solves a different mystery in each episode. So entertaining and so so good. There are only 6 episodes in season 1, give it a listen.
Shopping: thredUP, an online consignment store with excellent quality merchandise and fantastic prices. AND you never have to go to the store. That’s a win in my book. Want to get $20 off your first order and earn me $20, too? Follow this link and check it out. (I am not being compensated by thredUP for posting this, it’s my own individual recommendation.)
Scurrying: To get all my work done before vacation. Bills have to be processed, deposits have to be made, schedules have to be completed, reports have to be mailed. Ahhh, the life of a public servant.
That’s my world these days. Hope your world is good.
