Hello friends, happy Friday. already?! – I guess posting on a Thursday does make a Friday post seem like it comes quickly? Lucy is three months old today; she’s been home with us for over five weeks. and wow, time does fly when you’re having fun!
Here’s more of what’s going on right now:
Thinking about … what I want these last seven weeks of 2022 to hold. and paying attention to the invitations starting to whisper for the new year.
Grateful for … Marc’s 12-month PSA check came back … perfect! He now moves to checks every six months. I’m also grateful for the way Tuesday’s elections unfolded. not that I’m pleased with all the results (and ugh, another four weeks of campaigning here in Georgia), but I’m encouraged that abortion-restriction measures failed, candidates conceded losses, and our democracy survived.
Inspired by … my recent success with reading classics and my crush on Annie Jones who owns The Bookshelf in Thomasville, GA to join her podcast’s – From the Front Porch – Patreon community … where we will be reading Dickens’ The Bleak House for next year’s Conquer a Classic. I also ordered this gorgeous edition to grace my table during 2023 (and only a bit curious how birdcages are going to feature in the story?!)
Fun … Lucy at three months. pinecones and BIG sticks. sleeping through the night. fetch and tug-o-war. starting to find a potty schedule. hasn’t met a stranger. starting to love walks (the camellias at the top and bottom of this post are from a walk outside the neighborhood yesterday afternoon). curious. impervious to the rain, also to dirt, sticks, and leaves, even though her fur is like sticky velcro … not so fond of brushing or getting dried off.
Wishing y’all the best weekend available.
