Can you believe it will be Thanksgiving next week? I'm dazed. I have some Christmas gifts that have to be ready for that day so I'll be wrapping them and singing Christmas music. I continue to be on task for all of my knitting goals and what's even better, I'm enjoying all the knitting that I'm doing.
Around here I've been mulling over whether to put up one or two Christmas trees. Over the years I've simplified but lately 'going big' seems like a fun thing to do. Our big Christmas tree box was battered from the move so if I put up the tree then I can repair the box again. My big concern is Miss Holly and her investigative spirit. She is four years old, is she going to behave?
She hasn't bothered with the cuckoo clock chains like I thought she would...but I just don't trust her!
Around here my reading has been mostly about mindfulness for months and months. I plan to continue with that since being mindful keeps me happy.
However I've decided delve into WWII. I've read The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank when I was 14 years old and again when I was in my 30's. I started a re-reading once again this week. I also bought a memoir by Françoise Frenkel titled A Bookshop in Berlin which is about her escape to France. I'm on the hunt for more books. Also if you happen to be on Twitter, I recommend following the Auschwitz Memorial, they tweet about prisoners on their birthdays about their fate in the camp.
Also lined up will be an extensive rabbit hole of the Civil War during my 2022 year. I have yet to curate my reading list.
When I was in school I HATED history. Now look at me seeking it out! If you would have told the younger me that the older me would be interested in this I would have laughed hysterically.
The knitting in the photo below is a hat for me that I add a few rows to once in a while. I have yet to make the project page. The knitting photo above is the beginnings of a mitten for my grand nephew for Christmas.
What have been your rabbit holes that you've tumbled into?
