I'm borrowing the theme of this post from Liz Lamoreux, a writer and teacher who…
It’s the mid point of September, let’s talk about what’s going on around here currently . . .
Knitting: The Same As It Ever War Hat. I’m very close to finally finishing this one.
Reading with my eyes: Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult
Watching: Season 2 of The Bear
Eating: Enough to keep me going but not feeling particularly satisfied since Covid took away my taste and it’s not fully back yet.
Recommending: Estate and funeral planning. I know everyone understands the importance of a clear, current, and legal will but I’m also recommending that you put down in writing what you want to happen for your services after you die. Dale and I have promised each other that we will do this soon because we don’t want to see our children struggle with trying to figure out what we might want . . . or argue with each other about who is right about what we want.
Missing: My father-in-law. It’s so strange to look over at his house and yard and have him not be there.
Loving: Dahlias. They are exploding right now and I have them at home and at work and they bring me a lot of joy.
Reporting: That Jackie is loving kindergarten. He’s got friends and a great teacher and all reports are that he is a sweet and kind little boy.
Writing: Thank you notes. People were so generous and kind and sent us gift baskets and food baskets and flowers. They dropped off food and sweets and more.
Anticipating: Our final camping trip of the season which is taking place at the end of next week and coincides with my birthday. I’m hoping for perfect fall weather!
Reminding You: The Read With Us discussion for The Seven Moons of Maali Almedia is next Tuesday, September 19th.
