Around Here: October 2018

Hello, friends!  Here's a little bit about life right now:

What are you listening to?

I have Buddy Guy & Junior Wells on repeat at the moment.  You can get a taste in this YouTube video:

What are you wearing?

Winter has come.

And yes, my mittens are attached to my sleeves with clips like a five-year-old.  

What have you bought?

I'm actually trying very hard NOT to buy things.  In fact, I'm in the process of throwing things away, donating things, and trying to clean out some of the clutter.  That said, I did buy a set of Russian Piping Tips.

But, more on that tomorrow!

What are you reading?

Steve and I are taking turns reading chapters of What On Earth Evolved out loud to each other.  Reading feels like it must be a solitary experience.  But, most of us are lucky enough to start out being read to.  And then that experience stops.  But there's no reason it has to.  Reading out loud is a slower process but I find it very enjoyable.  And I find being read to to be quite a treat!  In my twenties, my Mom read one chapter of Away to me -- over the phone -- every night.  I have remembered that book -- and that experience -- for many years.  It has stayed with me in a way that other books haven't.

Who are you, admiring from afar?

The whimsical pictoral collages of clover_robin make me happy!

She has a book called Cut Paper Pictures, which I haven't bought yet.  But, it's on my wishlist for sure! 

So, there you have it!  That's the scoop on life around here at the moment.  If you'd like more behind-the-scenes real life fun, you can always check out my vlog.  I post a new vlog to my YouTube channel every Wednesday!  This is the most recent vlog:
