Hello friends and Happy Friday! I spent an hour on the porch this afternoon watching a replay of Modern Mrs Darcy’s Fall Book Preview and knitting. Shifty. of course.
Thinking about … feeling stuck. and how holding things loosely also means letting things go. hoping I can get my head (and heart) around all that enough to write about next week for October’s OLW link-up.
Grateful for … a fun knitting project. It’s been a long time since I’ve been monogamous to a project. That probably says as much about what I’m doing these days as it does the knitting. Here’s a better photo of the whole sweaterI plan on four more bands after this (purple) one – two gold, one blue/green, and one gray. and then the ribbing. and then two sleeves (but those will be quick, right?!)
Inspired by … that Modern Mrs Darcy video and my bookshelf to start thinking about what I’ll read next. Immediately up next are these three books –a new release with a surprisingly short hold wait, and the last two books for the NBA Fiction short list. I’ve really enjoyed reading the Booker and NBA short lists, and I’m excited to read other things! I have a few new releases (Lincoln Highway, Harlem Shuffle, Still Life, The Madness of Crowds) on my shelf already and one more on order (The Sentence). and there are more … and a bunch of backlist I just haven’t gotten to. It seems my book queue has finally overtaken my knitting queue!
Fun! … Marc’s nephew Justin and his bride Julia said “I do” last weekend in California … and they’re in Atlanta this weekend to attend another wedding. Katie is hosting a little brunch tomorrow morning and I’m beyond delighted for an opportunity to meet the bride and celebrate them in person! and bonus points that also means an opportunity to see my two favorite (little) boys 🙂
Wishing you a weekend with at least a few bonus points!
