Humored by… that kid! He started pressing the button and…
This is a small sampling of my current gallery!
Anticipating… the end of Farmers Market season. It's been a great season, and we've been *so* lucky with the weather! While there are technically three weeks remaining, due to other engagements we've only the Oct. 10th market left on our calendar. This Saturday, we'll instead be helping all afternoon with refreshments at the Harvest Festival at Grignon Mansion! The "mansion in the woods" is a real gem.
I'll be happy to have my Saturdays back!
Enjoying… cooler, drier weather and changing leaves and gorgeous skies. We've had an incredibly temperate late summer/early fall. I'm still wearing sandals!
Hoping… the trend continues.
Knitting… Dimorphous Mittens and Scoreboard. I've just ordered a couple of skeins of back-up yarn for my Prickly Poppy — something I've been pondering for a while now — prompted to action by the news that The Village Knitter is looking for a buyer (or will eventually close). That sweater's time out is just about over.
Learning… a little about soccer! I spent a glorious day soaking up the sun and watching my nephews play. I missed seeing Mack score a goal because I was taking video of the clouds (as did his mother because nature called!), but I did catch his even better assist (according to his dad) later in the game!
Needing… to get on with some cleaning and organizing, but not doing that until it's too cold to go outside anymore!
Planning… a spring vacation — maybe by train, maybe to Texas!
Reading… A Woman's Way West. It's not an incredibly well-written book, but it's entertaining and gives a pretty good a glimpse (with lots of photos!) into Doris Huffine's life (1901-1990) in the Montana wilderness. I love stories of women pioneers, and was given this book after the girls had gone on their June 2013 camping trip to Glacier National Park (where Doris began working in the '20s).
Sewing… a simple and "quick" boatneck top that's taking forever! I made a little progress yesterday… maybe I'll finish by the weekend.
Watching… reality shows about singing and dancing. There are some other things recorded/-ing but I haven't begun watching yet.
Remembering… waking up from Tuesday's nap.
Wishing… I was on the road back to Black Mountain with Kate! She left today for a weekend conference and I can't wait to hear all about it.
