This and That
How are you?
I've been mighty fine these days. The knitting frenzy continues as I am working on the sixth gnome! I am getting more crazy with the color combinations and chipping away at some half skeins that I know I will never use again. The gnome journey has been so much fun!
The above photo is the scarf that I am making for me that I haven't worked on since gnome number two or three. I'm working on it today, it's a lovely pattern that is fun to work on.
After a brief warm up in the temperatures, we are getting back to chilly air. A cold front blew through and the winds knocked down so many tree leaves in the neighborhood. Delightful! Frodo and I love to see the fallen leaves all mixed up on neighborhood properties. We have our fair share of leaves mixed together in our front yard.
After a summer on NOT feeding the birds because of a raccoon family, we are back at it. The birds came right back! Hopefully the raccoons do not. My bird feeder is squirrel proof but not raccoon proof.
I'm thinking about a major (well different) switch up to the notebooks I use when 2023 rolls in. Of course I use my hobonichi weeks for every day use. I have an art journal which is more writing and reflecting that art but it's decorated. I have a morning journal that I might switch sizes in the new year (from A5 to B6 - smaller).
I'd like to bring back my traveler's company notebook and do some gratitude journaling (I do a tiny bit in my morning journal). Life is so good, I should amplify it! Anyways nothing is really definite, but I do like to think about it.
I have high hopes of finishing all the gnomes (total of eight) but that just might be a lofty goal...it doesn't hurt to dream though.
