TGIF and Hello November! It’s my birthday and anniversary month, two reasons to celebrate! It’s also a month that reminds me to say thank you, and start thinking about the new year … and maybe, if I’m feeling really together, about the holidays next month!
Thinking about … plans and menus for Thanksgiving. Things look really different this year. Sara is here!! and Katie and her family are going to be away with Rob’s family (far enough away enough that we won’t be seeing them until December). Turns out Sara’s not so much a fan of turkey sandwiches and Marc wasn’t wild about our suggestion for a steak dinner. We’ll see!
Grateful for … many, many things. and the opportunity to explore four of them in more detail each Thursday this month. I shared my first post yesterday – about my dark-early-quiet-time – and your comments have been a joy. Thank you.
Inspired by … the response to my Erdrich read-along! We’re still making plans, but it looks like we’ll be reading six books with Zoom discussions for each. Based on the response so far, it will be a mix of re-reads and first-reads for our group. There’s certainly no need to feel shy if you’re an Erdrich newbie; and it’s not too late to join in – just let me know in the comments.
Looking forward to finishing … SHIFTY! oh y’all … these sleeves are gonna take more time than the body! Thank goodness they won’t be full-length … I knew having the sweater in my lap this week that it’s plenty warm and I think a little room for my wrists to breathe will be good. I finished the last decrease round this afternoon in time to snap a few photos (I think I need just one more stripe before the ribbing and phew – the stripes match!) to share. That last stripe is going to be purple and I plan to make the sleeve ribbing match the body. so another week? two? (please, not three!)
🙂 maybe you noticed there isn’t much in this post at all about Next Month. I’m obviously not feeling that together about it. How about you? are you making plans for December? please share!
