Happy October! It's been an interesting few weeks... and by interesting I mean, insanely busy and stressful and exhausting. Also, Lily and I had the stomach bug that is going around. I lost 8lbs in 3 days - on the most uncomfortable and most distressing diet ever. And I'm sure I gained it all back by eating nothing but plain pasta and Gatorade for the following week.
I also ended up watching all the TV ever (or so it felt). So I'm all caught up on the Election-that-will-never-be-over, and all the crimes and all the shootings and all the political-inaction-that-will-never-end.
There's plenty that I'm upset and disheartened by, but you really don't want to read my diatribe against the 2nd Amendment. (We heard the gunshots that killed a young man around the corner from our home. So, yup, taking it even more personally now.)
So in the interest in both our our sanities, and because it is a beautiful Sunday morning, here are some things that are making me happy these days.
|L and her beautiful cousin L taking a Fall stroll to the park.|
|Celebrating Meskel a few weeks late (stomach bug!) with our traditional fire and marshmallows.|
|Impromptu Halloween decorations that make me smile.|
|Getting back into quilting after a 4 year hiatus. (Hmm... what have I been doing for 4 years!?!)|
What is making you smile these days?
