Hello and Good Morning!
Who else is astonished that we are already at the end of October? Thanksgiving will be next month and Christmas the month after that. Incredible!
Talking with a girlfriend last night, she mentioned she had heard we are supposed to have a very mild/warm winter. Other people have told me they have heard the exact opposite with heavy snows forecast. Who knows? No one apparently. I guess we will just need to wait and see.
As usual on Wednesday, I'm linking up with Kat and her merry band of Unravelers to talk about making and reading. And look at this! I actually have a finished object!! The first of Peggy's socks has been completed.
And the second one started. Let's hope that this second one doesn't take me quite as long (7+ weeks! YIKES!!).
French Market Bag #2 also saw a few more rows added.
I'm so enjoying the stripes on this lump (hard to call it a bag just yet...it is so limp and just a blob). The last time I checked I had knit this one (so far) about 2-3" longer than the first. Still a way to go as I want this bag to really be a good size.
On the reading front, I finished a mystery by Linda Castillo (part of the series that takes place in the Ohio Amish land). It was good but a bit predictable. I've started Pax, Journey Home which I guess is really written for kids. I had read the first book ("Pax") and enjoyed it. I'm finding this one slower to get into. Last night I started Malibu Rising which is much more of a "beach-read" type of book than I was expecting. I'm a little bored with this one, but will keep with it for now. Fletch and I have not picked anything new to read and I'm missing that time together. The past couple of books I chose he hasn't really liked and he is not choosing any, so we are sort of at a standstill.
Well, time to look over this for any glaring spelling errors, then I need to wake Fletch and get myself ready to go to the office. Hoping your Wednesday is a pleasant one. Be sure to head over to Kat's for inspiration from everyone there!
