Happy Friday, y’all! In spite spending all that time on sleeve island, the week really flew by. and without further ado:
Thankful for … an FO! I finished up the ribbing and blocked yesterday afternoon (oh my – this yarn blocks beautifully and dries fast) and then seamed those sleeves this afternoon. I did try it on very quickly (and it fits) …and I can’t wait to actually wear it! (and looking at the weather forecast for Bristol, it appears I might even need a heavier sweater. and a raincoat. and an umbrella).
Gathering … book recommendations. Y’all, I have about 20 hours of solo travel time and a week of waiting for deliveries, cleaning and organizing (also all solo) in my near future and and I am in need of books. preferably on audio so I can knit, clean and organize while I read! I’ve saved Kate Atkinson’s latest (about 12 hours) … so I need another few. I’m looking for fiction. engaging, absorbing, with a strong female lead (extra points if she’s over age 50). I’d love your help!
Internet-searching … curly pixie cuts. My curls have grown out to the “messy stage” and I have a haircut appointment Tuesday morning. These are my two favorites.I wish it were easy to imagine these girls with silver locks and 55+ year old faces 🙂
Fun … tomorrow morning, our new Vice Moderator and I are attending leadership training in Decatur – a close-in suburb that’s about an hour drive from home. I’m really looking forward to sharing the experience with her. and very grateful it’s supposed to be over before lunch. So I’m going to take advantage of being “in town” to have lunch at Katie’s. She says she’ll cook. and I’ll get to see the little boys, too. Stay tuned on Monday, but I think it’s shaping up to be an awesome weekend.
I hope yours is as well. Enjoy!
