Joining in with Kat and friends for a quick update on two of my favorite things – reading and knitting (neither of which I enjoyed nearly as much as usual these past few weeks).
Things are slowly returning to some sort of normal around here. My sister will be here soon for our first Wednesday knitting since August 2. That seemed a fitting occasion to clean the porch, which took a beating when Irma blew through.
…and provided a beautiful setting to enjoy a few pages of A Good Hard Look. I’m just at the halfway point and it’s definitely captured my interest. It takes place in Milledgeville (about 100 miles southeast of here) and features Flannery O’Connor, peacocks and a host of other interesting characters. More to come once I finish!
…which might take a few days. The UPS man just delivered the yarn for Sam’s birthday blanket. 1,800+ yards (of worsted weight on size 8 needles) means audiobooks. I’m re-listening to A Gathering of Shadows (I first listened in the spring of 2016 and I remember almost nothing) in preparation for A Conjuring of Light. The re-listen is even better than I remember; I have high hopes for #3 in the series.
It’s also been fun catching up with y’all. I still have a few dozen unread posts in my feed reader (it does go quickly when I don’t leave comments on every post … trust you understand!) but it doesn’t feel so daunting. Thank you as always for providing me inspiration, humor, and a welcoming place to simply be.
