Hi everyone! What have you been up to? Besides work and regular life, I’ve been working on a revision of my nonfiction project. I finally seem to be getting somewhere with it.
And then there’s this blanket, which came together pretty quickly, all things considered. Like its sister blankets, it’s made from thrifted cashmere sweaters. These are so cozy and very popular in our house.
In other news, just finished reading How to Be a Person in the World by Heather Havrilesky. It’s a collection of her advice columns (she’s the author of New York Magazine’s “Ask Polly”). I enjoyed it a lot, especially the one about making friends as an adult. The columns are more like essays, really, and if you liked Cheryl Strayed’s Tiny Beautiful Things, you may enjoy this one, too, unless you’re offended by lots of strong language.
Other things I’m enjoying: rooibos teas from Adagio Teas: green citrus, caramel, and vanilla chai.
Anybody watched the new Anne of Green Gables TV series? Haven’t tried it myself, but I’m intrigued. Okay, gotta run. Hope to be back soon.
I love your quiet updates. They are incredibly soothing. Is the nonfiction project the one about clothing?
Thanks, Joyce! I always appreciate your comments. Yes, it’s the nonfiction about clothing. Still dragging on…we’ll see if it gets anywhere.
