A Few Updates

What a beautiful weekend!  Sunny days, crisp fall temperatures, chilly nights — just beautiful.  I may have mentioned (many times) how much I love autumn.  Several festivals, craft fairs in the area this weekend and I wasn’t able to take advantage of any of them.  Oh well . . . .

Finished Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon on Friday.  I always enjoy her books and Father Tim is a favorite character.  Next up is The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society by Beth Pattillo.  Fiction about a literature/knitting group — what could be better.  Picked it up at the bookstore on Saturday.  I’m so pleased that I found the FIR Challenge.  It’s just the motivation I need to pick up a book and read more often.

I’m coming down the home stretch on the Gail/Nightsongs shawl and really concerned about whether there will be enough yarn.  Just in case, I stopped after 6 repeats and started the edging chart this weekend.  I’d love to get this finished and blocked this week so I could wear it while the weather is cool.  That may be optimistic.  We’ll just have to see.

Today I’m starting a new part-time job.  I’ve become quite satisfied with my “leisure” mornings.  This may be tough for a few days.  But I’ll be home in the afternoons with DH and that’s a good thing.

One last drink of tea and I’m off.
Enjoy your day!
