Today I had a few chore-like things planned, but they got sidetracked. It was a beautiful day and we started off the morning by heading to Sitka Sedge, a state park a few miles north of here. We hiked about a mile in to the beach and then walked up the beach for a while. Sunny, no wind, just beautiful.
After lunch we put the outdoor lights up on the deck, and then Tim said 'let's just do the lights on the inside tree.' So we did. And then he said "let's just do the ornaments' and so the tree is done! This is the earliest ever---usually he goes to a conference in the second week in December and we don't even start stuff til he gets back. But this is an unprecedented year, of course, so we decided to start the holiday early.
I have started a few knitting projects. First, just a simple sock.
Second, the 'pressed flowers' shawl that looked too complex until I realized it was mosaic and not colorwork. Early days on this one but I like it so far!
I read a good book--"White Ivy" by Susie Yang. It is sort of hard to explain, but check it out. It's good.
Onward to December!
