The treadmill arrived Monday. It took us more than 4 hours to set it up yesterday, but as of today, I can get my walking in regardless of the weather. Huzzah! (Just in time for cooler weather LOL!) I am looking forward to increasing my stamina.
I spent about half of Wednesday and part of both Thursday and Friday spinning whilst listening to audiobooks. I’m trying to learn to spin a thinnish art yarn, with slubs and add-ins and a glorious riot of color. I am not as good as I would like at keeping the colors separate, so sometimes they get a bit muddy. But I enjoyed spinning this batt. I plan to ply it with thread, once the cones I ordered get here.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I’m still reading Happily This Christmas. It’s going slowly, partly because I’m not in a Christmas mood and partly because one of the secondary characters is acting like a spoiled brat, which grates on my nerves. So I reread One Night for Love, one of my favorite Mary Balogh novels, then started Henrietta Who?, because my audiobooks (see below) put me in the mood for more Catherine Aird. (Click title for Goodreads page or my review.)
Listening: It was a great week for audiobooks (and spinning; see above.) I finished Some Die Eloquent by Catherine Aird, then went on to listen to At Bertram’s Hotel by Agatha Christie, because her 130th birthday was this week. I followed that up with A Most Contagious Game (another Aird mystery.) I need to finish Binti (Nnedi Okorafor), but I may decide to read the rest instead of listening to the audiobook. The narrator is excellent, but the book is darker than I anticipated, and right now, I think I can handle that better by reading than by listening.
Watching: A couple of episodes of Aerial America and Warehouse 13.
