just another magic monday

these last few days have been the kind that only make me remember it's november when the sun sets so early it surprises me and the chill in the air is nearly instantaneous.

my decorating proceeds apace - meg's furniture, at least the stuff i can reach - is painted. the colors are picked, the new fixtures for the bath are delivered. we await now is Joe the Builder - who is supposed to come this week. i plan to begin my sewing projects i run out of things to paint.

i have over 9000 words of my key west story. i've polished the first three chapters as much i need to, i think... im getting a good handle on the main character, and the others seem to be developing. i'm going to move forward later on.

this afternoon libby and i have some errands to run, some shopping to do. i picked up a few stocking stuffers at marshall's the other day - it's getting to be That Time of Year.

and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.

Sounds like a nice enough day! As for the time of year - I'm still investing more time in the kitchen, wrapped in an apron ... but it will be worth it!

Congrats on the word count on your story! I'm still editing my novel.
This is my favorite time of the year except for the raking leaves part.

It sounds like a wondrous day!
I love your butternut squash soup recipe, turned out wonderfully, thank you!
