It's the first Monday of fall and I think it's the perfect time to share…
Let’s do a mid-month check in on what’s going on around here right now . . .
Knitting: Socks. I am knitting the toe of sock #2! However, the heel on sock #1 is wonky. I can’t figure out why but the gauge is way off so I think I will be ripping back the foot of sock #1 and re-knitting the heel. In other words, the finish line just got moved pretty far forward.
Reading with my eyes: Murder in a Cape Cottage, a cozy mystery that’s serving as something light given that I’ve been reading some heavier books lately.
Reading with my ears: Inciting Joy. There’s so much good in this latest from Ross Gay.
Watching: Daisy Jones & the Six. We have 2 episodes left and it’s so good!
Recommending: Maintenance Phase, a terrific podcast that debunks diet culture and the wellness industry.
Planning: Meals for camping! I like to do as much at home as I can to keep things simple while we’re away. I’m debating bringing the Instant Pot for some fix it and forget it dinners.
Remembering: My brother. Last week was the 40th anniversary of his death and that just doesn’t seem possible.
Loving: Costco. We’ve had a membership for ages but just don’t get there very often. We went the other day, though, because Dale needs new glasses and the savings were great.
Celebrating: Town Meeting approved a new roof and painting the outside of my library last night. It passed easily and I’m grateful and excited to know this work is going to be done in the next fiscal year.
And that’s it for me. What’s going on in your world right now?
