i’ve been

  1. loving my new boden saffron coat (that matches the trees this time of year)
  2. staying up far too late and getting up way too early
  3. knitting the blanket that i started for wren two years ago
  4. looking for work, which is a full-time job
  5. in a state of shock over the us elections
  6. craving these olives
  7. hooked on the new season of the walking dead and black mirror (bone-chilling good)
  8. reading anne dillard’s book the abundance (one book to go to reach my goal)
  9. listening to bon iver’s new album (i’ve been waiting five years for this)
  10. not exercising enough (or at all)
  11. baking healthy treats for wren
  12. eating my weight in marmite popcorn
  13. sleepy (like autumn)
  14. meditating every day
  15. thinking i should drink more hot chocolate
  16. wishing Obama could be president forever
  17. noticing how the light travels on my bed and the wall by the window at the top of the landing and the way it dances on the kitchen floor, shadows of the leaves blowing on the tree outside

what have you been up to lately?

    You look GREAT in your beautiful new coat. I love it. And you look like your in a real photo shoot. Very very nice.
    I’ve been:
    1) crocheting again which I don’t do during the summer
    2) looking for pretty new turtlenecks
    3) thinking about getting the new Leonard Cohen cd
    4) trying to walk at both breaks and at lunchtime on work days.
    5) grateful for my family
    6) keeping my fingers crossed for Nov 8th. Hoping logic will win out over lunacy
    7) hoping you find the perfect job
    8) spending waaaaaaaaaay too much time on the computer
    9) feeling pretty darn good 🙂

    I’ve been working on number 16 for quite a while. How I love President Obama. I am in mourning that he and flotus are going away. Even before the election was decided, I was just feeling such sadness and now it’s ever so much more so. The comparison is stark.
