Wow… Not only is it Monday again already, but it’s also November. How the hell did that happen? Before we get into the beauty of the new month (The election will finally be over! Thanksgiving is coming!), here’s a look back at three beautiful things from the last week of October:
1. On Tuesday, I got home from buying the Mac just in time to unexpectedly catch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” from the very beginning, which meant I got to do the whole Peanuts dance to the long musical intro.
2. After spending several days fighting my severely overgrown hair in high winds, I finally took myself to the salon and had my hair “winterized” — so it can be blown out straight now that the humidity is gone.
3. I rode out to deep suburbia, and then the actual country with sprite on Saturday to meet up with some people from our knitting group to go out to Solitude, a small farm where the owner, Gretchen, uses the wool produced by her sheep — as well as that from other local farms — to make absolutely beautiful yarn. The weather was gorgeous, the trees were nearing peak color, and I picked up some gorgeous yarn — a three beautiful things trifecta.
