Yes, this is another scarf. I know – I’m off on one of my obsessions again. It’s like the hats all over again. I’ve even named this style of scarf and have started planning out variations on the original. Am considering setting up a separate website for this scarf. OK, OK, I’m kidding… but don’t think I didn’t spend that entire traffic jam on 280 during my evening commute planning what the scarf’s new website will look like.
I’ll get over it soon, I promise.
I’ve been so fabulously content lately. I quit one of my two part-time jobs a few weeks ago, and ever since then I’m been enjoying my time at home for the first time since I moved back to CA just about exactly a year ago. I’ve been writing, reading, knitting, and cooking and eating good food – and appreciating all of these activities while they are going on – which is not always a strength of mine. Appreciating things when I don’t have them is more my speed.
I’m reading Michael Dobbs’ Six Months in 1945 mostly as research for one of my writing projects, but I’m enjoying it and will probably read the whole thing, not just the parts that are relevant to my project. It’s about the Yalta Conference and the events that followed it – events that are usually considered to be the harbingers of the Cold War. I haven’t even read the whole first chapter yet, but I’m enjoying spending some time with it during my long-awaited five-day weekend. I will be doing absolutely NO Black Friday nonsense – just reading and knitting and writing and cooking and eating and going for walks and reveling in the chance to feel creative and productive again.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends and readers!
