Hello friends. Hello Friday. and Hello November! Again, it’s been a minute … and 30 days since Lucy came home with me. We are still settling in and practicing being present. most days that feels like plenty. but November! I need to re-engage … even just a little.
Thinking about … birthday and holiday plans! One of my favorite people celebrates a birthday today and we’re planning a two-of-us (Lucy makes three) dinner and sleepover after Thanksgiving.
We also have a family celebration for all the #bermonths birthdays (Charlie, Marc, Sam, Rob, Sara, and me) and a girls-only celebration for my 60th (!!!), plus Thanksgiving. Menu plans are flying – and I’m sure Ina’s new cookbook will feature in at least a few dishes.
Grateful for … how different in a very good way this November feels. Our family is together (no quarantine. no airports!) and we’re all healthy.
Inspired by … a bit of test knitting!! I was delighted to be selected to test Ankestrick’s new NAiMA Pullover DK (Ravelry link) and even more delighted to feel like I could! Knitting with Lucy is still a challenge, and that’s a very effective way to be sure I don’t overdo. This is a week’s progress at a worsted gauge. I do need to pick up the pace a bit (the finished project is due before Thanksgiving), and it feels like that’s possible.
Fun … I’m having a ball with Lucy. She’s 12 weeks old and almost as big as Holly was. She’s brave, curious, and utterly charming. She’s not very patient with photos. so it’s a good thing I’m persistent.
What are you T-G-I-F’ing about this month?
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here next week … I have a bit of catching up to do!
