I first titled this post “TGIF | Almost December” and then changed my mind. I love November and as weird and unsettling (and downright anxiety producing … before it seemed to turn a corner. vaccines! certified election results!) as it’s been this year, I really don’t want to skip by these last few days. After all, next week I can say “Hello December”. So … here’s to one last Friday in November. With colorful leaves still on the trees, a smidge of green still showing in the grass, and temperatures in the “do we need to turn the heat on?” range 🙂
Thinking about … my One Little Word. and mostly trying to decide if I’m “done” with this year’s word enough to think about another one. In all these years, I’ve never repeated a word; and even the year I thought I wouldn’t choose one, I did. It gets to be a lot of words! and yet. I can’t imagine my life without any of them (well, except maybe for 2016’s nourish … good choice, poorly timed).
Grateful for … our bubble. and yesterday.Sam came to Thanksgiving as a Pirate (which is maybe the most accurate Thanksgiving costume ever). Charlie made everyone I am thankful for pages to color/fill-in before dinner. I sat down in my chair (the top photo is the view from that special seat) and colored in/filled out mine in no time.
(also a nice glass of red wine … I ran out of room!)
Inspired by … two new books to think about Advent a little more broadly. and a little differently.I’ll be working through Shadow & Light in my morning time and my small group is reading Light of the World.
(Can’t wait to) Finish … Dissent (ha! not even ON Ravelry!). I’m finally knitting the sleeves. and I think it’s going to fit! I bound off the body last night – after changing into my PJs and that try-on wasn’t nearly as encouraging as this one (you know, with a bra!) I made a bunch of tweaks to the pattern – converting a steeked cardigan to a pullover (the designer has shared an awesome guide for that), adjusting for a different row gauge, and knitting between two sizes. I think it’s all gonna work and now I can’t wait to finish! … and figure out what I’ll be knitting next.
Wishing everyone the best weekend available!
