Fall is finally here — huzzah! I am so ready for the cooler weather, and the chance to wear my handknits again. Sadly, Virginia is also “abnormally dry” and verging on drought right now, so the leaves are drying out and falling before they get much chance to change colors.
Our first chorus rehearsals, held last Sunday (Sept. 29), went pretty well, although attendance was sparser than I would like. It usually picks up the second and third weeks, but I need to make some calls, see if I can get some more kids involved.
I turned my index in midweek and promptly started the next one. This Saturday we went to the Fall Fiber Festival and Montpelier Sheep Dog Trials, and I took my very first spinning class. (Wool, not bicycles.) I had a wonderful time, learned some useful skills, and bought… well, I almost said “too much fiber,” but I’m sure it will all get spun! And although I do buy fiber online, there’s nothing like being able to see it and feel it before you decide.
I still haven’t had time to get the post-scheduling issue fixed, and this week’s not looking good for it either. So please forgive me for posting this Sunday Post a day late!

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I read The Dark Lord Clementine (Sarah Jean Horwitz; ARC) for this week’s tour. I reread Dark Witch and Shadow Spell, the first and second in the Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy by Nora Roberts, and I’m rereading the third, Blood Magick. I’m also still reading Read and Buried by Eva Gates, AKA Vicki Delany (ARC.) (Click titles for review or Goodreads links.)
Listening: I’m almost halfway through A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan, and still really enjoying it.
Watching: We’ve been watching Ken Burns’s documentary, Country Music, which is quite good. For some reason, we started out of order, and watched episodes 5, 6, and 7 before going back to the beginning for episode 1.
