Re-Connecting Again And --

Hoping - to climb out of my funk and find my words again because I've felt strangely empty and silent lately -- and the sooner, the better because it is after all the season to be merry!

Still trying to come to terms with - celebrating number fifty-five back in October. For someone who doesn't think in terms of age, it sure did knock me for a loop and I think is at least partly responsible for my funk -- I mean it's just a number, right? 

Knitting - the Best Friend Scarf. The yarn is from Brew City Yarns, and the colorway is Wine In A Sippy Cup. Both the pattern and the yarn are very aptly named. It's for my daughter who is one of my very best friends, and we have both been known to enjoy our wine, although, not out of sippy cups.

Currently Reading - The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. I don't know if I've ever used the word delightful before, but that is the perfect word for this book! I'm very much looking forward to reading the other books in the series. I'm still trying to finish up the books I wanted to read for Book Bingo - only one more to go! And speaking of Book Bingo, I was very surprised to find my name picked in the drawing for a prize (an Amazon gift card) which I used to purchase -- more books!

Watching - Binge watched my way through Mad Men - for the ? time. Currently watching The Kettering Incident and Mozart in the Jungle on Amazon Video. I've only watched the first episode of The Kettering Incident, but have a feeling it may be a while before I get back to it as I'm very much enjoying Mozart in the Jungle. The music in it is making me wish we still had our subscription to the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Stitching - Recently finished Where the Bittersweet Blooms by Brenda Gervais.

Preparing for - Christmas? Just another reminder of how quickly time moves - almost ready for a new year.

Thanks for reading -- hope you are all in the holiday spirit and if you are interested, there are some good things here!
