Here's what's going on in my life . . . RIGHT NOW.
Watching . . . the leaves just beginning to turn.
Reading . . . Painter of Silence by Georgina Harding (still working through the Orange Prize longlist nominees; this one actually made the shortlist) and a rather meaty biography of Catherine the Great (inspired by my trip to St. Petersburg).
Knitting . . . Now that I've cleared the decks of my fiddly-stuff, I've cast on for this cardigan. I also discovered some charming (and rather addicting) sock yarn. There may also be a cowl whispering in my ear.
Humming . . . I'm so sorry to report this, but I'm humming Olivia Newton John tunes. All of them. (And it is completely Tom's fault.)
Thinking about . . . two Great Adventures! First, I'm off to Salt Lake City to visit Margene (and Carole will be there, too!) and the Alta Lodge Knitter's Retreat. Then, in a couple of weeks, I'm making a pilgrimage to Rhinebeck with Patty!
Listening to . . . NOT Olivia Newton John. Lately my iPod has been tuned to the Stone Temple Pilots. (A far cry from "I Honestly Love You". . . let me tell you!)
Dreading . . . a BIG deadline coming up after I return from Utah. . . and before I go to Rhinebeck. It'll be fun, let me tell you.
Planning . . . my final approach on the garden for the season. Also, holiday plans are beginning to enter the consciousness.
Excited about . . . meeting Margene and Carole and Cheryl and Patty . . . IN REAL LIFE.
Drinking . . . Water. Lots of water! (I need to hydrate to prepare for high altitude.)
Itching to . . . paint! STILL. After all these months. I do have progress to report, though. The ceiling is finished.
Needing to . . . finish my packing and manage some loose ends.
Organizing . . . nothing at the moment.
Inspired by . . . adventure!
Delighted by. . . cool days and cooler nights; birds at my feeders; mums and pumpkins.
How about YOU? What's going on for YOU . . . right now?
