Currents | October 2015.

from last Thursday's afternoon walk #blueskyblooms #nofilter
Remembering last Thursday's gorgeous bright blue skies. We've had a week of gray skies and rain...but the sun will hopefully be back for the weekend.

Embracing fall. and the start of the "getting cozy" season. and

Dreading, less than usual, the accompanying lack of daylight.

Eating carrots, almonds and sharp cheddar cheese.

Reading Brown Girl Dreaming with my eyes and Career of Evil with  my ears. The former is taking a while because I've fallen asleep almost immediately the last few nights, while the latter is pretty much consuming me. It's dark and twisted (way more than anything I usually read or watch), but oh so good!

Listening to Apple Music. I'm still doing my 3-month free trial, but expect I'll cancel my car's XM subscription to keep Apple.

Watching Homeland. This is my favorite season so far, and not just because it's a free pass to talk to Sara every Monday evening!

Enjoying knitting. I haven't shared much here about what I'm doing, but there have been several FO's in the last week and I am eagerly planning my next few projects.

Looking forward to two upcoming bible studies (Thanksgiving and Advent) that Katie and I will be doing together.

Letting go of the idea I'll have a finished quilt top...or even a second finished log cabin square to share soon. (and thank you everyone who guessed on last week's post - my square is the neutral one with the pop of color in the middle of the right hand row!) I might get some concentrated sewing time next week...but otherwise November is looking really busy.

Needing a keratin treatment. My frizzy curls are driving me crazy!

Wondering  just how NaBloPoMo is going to come off.

How about you, what's current in your world?

  1. I'm reading Find The Good and I love it. We're watching Homeland, too - one episode behind.

  2. I'm listening to Career of Evil, too. I can't say I'm enjoying the dark and twisted parts very much. We have gray skies today, which means I love seeing your blue skies!

  3. What a beautiful photograph! I'm reading Eventide and listening to Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. And...I also have a FO! I'm saving it for next week of course. If only I could do both at work...:-)

  4. Love that photo...does brighten up things, considerably. We're giving our eyeballs a rest from baseball., at least tonite ( no game) and I'm getting prepped for Nov!!! Here before we know it!
    Cheers~

  5. Like you, I don't like the darkness this time of year, but I do like this cool, crisp Fall weather. I love your photo!

  6. This looks like it could be a spring photo! I'm looking forward to the "extra hour" of sleep, but not the darkness. Speaking of darkness, I'm stalled with Career of Evil (too dark and twisted for me), and looking for something really compelling to read. I'm going back and forth on NaBloPoMo. The blogging fairy does not seem to have written any posts for me, so I'm also wondering how (and possibly why!) this is going to happen.

  7. Looking forward to a home game at the Dome on Sunday-serious progress on 3 sweaters and ready to swatch for a 4th. Trust me quilt projects languish more compared with knitting-even quilters will agree. I was not overly impressed with Apple music-maybe my shorter commute had something to do with that. Happy Friday!

  8. So nice to see your lovely bloom! (None of those here, sad to say.)
