There it goes! October . . .
(Alas. I feel I hardly knew ye. . . )
Here's what's happening for me . . . Right Now.
Watching . . . Grace and Frankie. I love it! Lily Tomlin. Jane Fonda. Funny and sweet.
Reading . . . In my ears: The Story of a New Name (Elena Ferrante). In words: Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End (Atul Gawande). For my heart: Felicity (Mary Oliver).
Knitting . . . Still plugging away on this sweater. But taking a break right now for a project I can't really talk about right now. (Sorry.) (But you can be certain that knitting continues at a snail's pace.)
Listening to . . . Well. We had a bit of a windstorm this week. And the weather-folk kept saying these words: the gales of November are coming early. Which means THIS song has been stuck in my head. . .
EDITED: Okay. Since the link does not appear to work, and I have no time to mess with it today, you're all spared Gordon Lightfoot crooning The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. (But I'll bet it's already stuck in your head.) (Because that kind of song.)
Planning . . . NaMoBloPo. Thanksgiving. (Basically, all the November things.)
Needing to . . . Plant. My. Damn. Bulbs. (This weekend, or I've wasted them completely.) (I do this every year.) (It's almost as bad as doing my taxes.)
Drinking . . . Wine. (Natch.)
Itching to . . . Have my damn bathroom renovation finished!!! (It's so close now I can taste it.) (But still not finished.)
Dreading . . . Longer, darker days. (I hate time changes; although "fall back" is much preferrable to "spring ahead.")
Wondering . . . Where October went. (Because I don't seem to remember much of it at all.)
Delighted by . . . My new Not-Hunter rain boots! Waterproof. Comfortable. Stylin.' Affordable. Canadian-made Kamiks.
Organizing . . . Well. Getting ready to re-organize my new-and-improved bathroom. (But Not. Quite. Yet.)
Celebrating . . . Still basking in wedding joy!
How about YOU? What's happening for you . . . right now?
PS - See you Sunday.
