Happy October! Finally we had some gorgeous Fall weather over the weekend. Saturday was mostly grey and very, very windy and chilly but Sunday was PERFECT! Fletch did a lot of work out in the garden. I picked the last of the tomatoes and a couple of peppers. We still have peppers growing and four eggplants!
Sunday morning I did manage to pack for vacation! We leave next Saturday and I didn't want to leave it for evening doing...this week will be busy enough. And, I don't really need sweatshirts and flannel shirts for work, so a no-brainer to get it done. Only last minute things to put in, and I still need to figure out what to take knitting-wise.
Meanwhile, there has been progress on Nutkin 2:
The heel has been turned, gusset stitches picked up and the decreasing has begun. Still rows and rows to go since I have large feet - lol. Hoping to get these done before we leave. I don't need them for the trip (hand-knit socks already packed!!), but I don't want to drag a project with me that doesn't have much to finish...just a waste of precious space in my opinion. So, I will plug away.
But, the week is busy. Busy at work (always before vacation, plus our new fiscal year started 10/1). Yoga tonight, dentist appointment Thursday, last minute cleaning (I always clean before leaving for vacation - can't stand to come home to a dirty house). So, as Fletch says, I'll be a bit manic this week.
On the reading front I finished The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane (Lisa See) and liked it. Mostly I enjoyed all the info about tea. Am now about a third of the way through History of Wolves. A little draggy in parts, but overall I'm enjoying it.
Hope you all had a great weekend. I've got a ton to get done today, so I'd best get going.
