Oh, domesticity.

A new coat, walks in the woods, time spent drawing, reading, and eating dried cherries (thanks, Dad!).

But really exciting is house-sitting and having a kitchen and piano of my very own for a while.
Saturday was a fun night with the girls, stir-fry and Chocolate Beet Cake and Bananagrams.

On Sunday afternoon, I was the happiest girl in the world. Baking banana bread while listening to public radio (I pledged and they mentioned my name on air!) and walking the dog and curling up on the couch with mug of tea and book (currently The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver.)

little bits of my october

Ignoring the fact that I have been gone from here for quite a while, let's jump back in to how lovely October has been.

Writing lots of letters, doing lots of drawing, Value Village finds (the dress is going to become my Halloween costume!) and getting lovely etsy things in the mail. That I wouldn't open until I carried them down to the coffeehouse and got an americano and pumpkin-raisin loaf. And promptly read my novel afterwards. I love mornings like that.

Lots of listening to NPR, lots of knitting (one mitten down), lots of walks on the trails, lots of writing in journals, talking on the phone to long-distant friends, art-galleries with close-distance friends, going contra dancing for the first time, and taking myself to see a play on a Sunday afternoon.

Have a lovely Thursday, and a lovely week :)
