October!!! I made it to the best of the first months of glorious brilliant fall foliage, cool breezes and the quietening of summer. Phew. Now the question I ponder upon is how do I savor this blessed month? I already keep a journal and I take photos. I document so much of my days in more than one notebook even though they seem mundane and nothing changes day in day out.
I guess I will try my very best to be mindful and in the moment. This is a challenge since I'm thinking of the next thing I want to do or accomplish.
Inktober started yesterday! I do love pens and ink the best (besides watercoloring). I'm eager to return to a daily sketching habit. My husband mainly does pastels and is now dabbling in colored pencil. Oh I am a wannabe when it comes to colored pencil and it just doesn't jive with me. I like the permanence of ink and the sloppiness of watercolor. I'm also not patient enough to layer colors like he is.
Thank you Mary for a great book recommendation. This is the right book at the right time for me.
I did tons of highway riding knitting to and from Indiana so the first sock is done for another holiday gift. I am knitting all the knits and enjoying each and every one. I'll show you next week my sister's half finished sweater. She wants me to finish it.
How are you savoring October? Daily walks? Photography? Eking out all the outdoor distant gatherings while you can? Baking pumpkin pies? I'd love for you to share in the comments.
