And then . . . all of a sudden . . . it's feeling very fall-ish around here.
As in . . . I'm wearing shoes AND socks again. (And that says a lot, let me tell you.) (Because I fight footwear - and especially socks - in a big way.)
Here are three random things I'm thinking about today.
Thing One: It is amazing how exhausting it is to sit around all day, not being very busy! Yes. My day at the polls on Tuesday was low-key and not very eventful. While there was plenty of time for knitting or reading, there was usually just enough "voting action" that it was hard to find a flow. And, of course, my co-workers were a pretty chatty bunch. While it's nice to sit and chit-chat with new people, I also find it tedious and draining after a while. And although I'd really like to shout out "Stop talking now. I'm trying to knit here!" . . . I don't. I nod my head and ask all the right Small Talk Questions. A long nap yesterday really helped!
Thing Two: We'd had a dusting of snow yesterday when I first woke up. It was fairly magical to see things covered with a light coating of flakes, and I'm generally okay with snow falling once we get into November, but . . . it's always a surprise. The "snow" didn't last long once the sun rose, but it was a good reminder that . . . winter is coming.
Thing Three: I really need to organize myself for the holidays . . . because here they come, ready or not! I'm not planning any gift-knitting this year (ARE YOU?), but thinking about putting together some other handmade (and quicker) things. We'll see!
And that's it for me this Thursday morning.
Lots of randoming going on over here in my little corner of the world.
How about you?
