Outside my window… 43F (feels colder), mostly sunny, lots of leaves on the ground. The neighbours had their big healthy spruce removed yesterday, which makes me sad. Took a walk with spouse to get lunch earlier.
I am thinking… about upcoming NYC trip, cousin’s son just diagnosed with cancer, Xmas travel and gifts, health, books I’m reading, and the usual
I am thankful for… spouse, soups, money, books, dogs, friends, trains
From the kitchen… made a shrimp, red pepper and corn risotto last night, which we’ll have again tonight
I am wearing… jeans, purple long-sleeved T, charcoal grey wool sweater, new lime green Smartwool socks!
I am creating… I have been having dreams about creating this sort of thing.
I am going… ???
I am reading … Louise Penny’s latest, Bury Your Dead (2010) and then Hypothermia (2009) by Arnaldur Indridason.
I am hoping… still, for a good kennel for Xmas for dog. Also that NYC weekend goes well.
I am hearing… T mowing lawn to mulch the leaves, dog sounds of contentment as she lays in front of the fire (for two hours-plus now)
Around the house… too much clutter …
One of my favorite things … having a dog in the house (especially this dog)
A few plans for the rest of the week … nothing much this week after 4 days of travel last week and with another 3 days coming up in mid-Nov.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing…
