Three on Thursday

Today I am thankful

For my family and the laughter and music they bring into our lives,

For opportunities to learn that I am much stronger than I ever imagined,

For a day when we can eat good food, sip some amazing wine, and take the time to catch up with our wonderful tribe.

Enjoy your day!

Wovember is coming

I know that November is NaBloPoMo month but it is also Wovember – a chance to embrace and celebrate all things wooly.  The Yarn in the City ladies have an Instagram based photo challenge going on.  Be sure to check out the Wool=Wellness posts too.

Time to say goodbye to October.  It has been a busy month but so many beautiful, crisp fall days.  I have really enjoyed taking our tiny person to the park and watching him explore.  I haven’t done as much running as I had hoped but I think I am edging back into it.  I am contemplating joining a fitness center for the dark, cold months ahead.  And I have promised myself that if I lose just a few more pounds, I will get a new FitBit.  I finished a few knitting projects and got back to writing in this space.  My journals have seen some regular attention and there has been some good reading progress.
How about you?  Was October a good month?

Words, yarn, looking ahead


This year is coming to a close.  It will take me awhile to sort out everything that has happened in the last month.  What I do know is that I have much to celebrate.  I have so much lovely yarn, quilting projects to keep me entertained, great books to read, and an amazing family.

I finished Commonwealth and have been enjoying listening to Ann Patchett read Truth and Beauty.  I picked up an Ann Hood book at the library and hope to sink into that this weekend.  And yesterday, this beautiful book arrived – Royal Mail, I love that.  I am eager to read everything I can about Shetland before I head across the pond for an amazing Grand Shetland Adventure next summer.

I cast on (again) the Annabel cardigan.  Next up will be the Rob Roy hat followed by a new-to-me cast on – picot edge cast on.  

Finally, I saw this fun idea on Nancy’s blog and thought I would play along.  This week is getting better already!
