That's a lot of leaves!!
Acknowledging… That my birthday, which falls just two days before Election Day, is going to require some serious attention and damn good mojo.
Anticipating… Election Day! While I doubt the madness will end, it'll at least be… the end of something. I can't complain about the ads because I don't watch live TV, and I use NoMoRobo to curb the unwanted calls and soliticitations, but FB is full of it (and I admit to getting caught up a bit… sometimes…). Mostly, hopefully, GOD PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, I am anticipating not having to even think about the possibility of Donald Trump as our president. I do not understand it one single iota — never did, never will — the man is as unfit for office as he is disgusting.
And that's a lot. /sorrynotsorry /iamfinishednow
Delighted by… Junah playing with an old Fisher-Price Family Farm that my mom had. It's been in my trunk for months… but Jun came grocery shopping with me yesterday and he spotted it when we loaded up the groceries! We brought it in the house and he played with it for quite a while — first on the kitchen floor, then in the living room. Then we played "jump" — where I sit in my chair and he stands on my footstool — bounce & JUMP! Then we played with "circles" — an old Discovery Toys game — and then he was goofing around and bonked his head and wanted to go home… or to the farm. ?? His other grandparents live on a farm and I thought he was telling me that he wanted to go home or to the farm… which is fine, because they're amazingly great and wonderful people (love you, Bob & Kathy… but REALLY, Junah??). Heheh, he wanted to take the farm home with him! And so we did. ;)
Knitting… Squad Mitts and some stealth Christmas presents for the kiddos. I would likely have a pair of mitts finished had I not gone full-on AUTO and knit well beyond where I was supposed to begin the thumb gusset on mitt #2… so a little rip & re-knit was in order. Back on track and for sure tonight! It is definitely getting to be mitt season, and I like that these are in fingering-weight yarn.
Looking forward to… WINTER! For the simple reason that it marks the end of road construction around here. OhMyGOD, it has been something else this year.
Planning… NaBloPoMo! Call me crazy, but I can't NOT do it after all these years.
Reading… PAGES: Room… making progress. AUDIO: The Time Traveler's Wife – that's a long book — I'm about half-way. I've been enjoying it, for the most part, but they just got married and I've rolled my eyes a time or two… I should stick with it, right?
Sewing… Hopefully soon. I've had some fabric for a while now to make new window treatments in the bathroom.
Wondering… What's up with you right now!?
