I’ve been enjoying the cooler weather. A friend came over on Thursday with her new (used) spinning wheel, and I helped her with the basics of spinning. We both really enjoyed the afternoon; we had tea and cranberry-orange bread before we started spinning. My hope is to get together every few weeks. Other than that, I’ve been working, reading, spinning, and knitting a little.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I’ve been on a binge read of Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series. Since I discovered the series several years ago, I’ve been going back and reading the books I missed. This week, those included The Unholy, The Unspoken, The Night is Watching, The Night is Alive, The Night is Forever, The Cursed, and one reread, The Hexed. In between those, I’m still reading The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Becky Chambers), which I started for #ReadForGrace. (Click titles for Goodreads links.)
Listening: I finished The Perilous Gard, one of my favorite books of all time. Now I am listening to The Last Moriarty, the first book in Charles Veley’s “Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James” series; it’s a surprisingly good pastiche. I still need to finish episode #007 of the Tea & Strumpets podcast about The Viscount Who Loved Me.
Watching: We watched Kingsman: The Golden Compass, and then finished Eureka. I’m going to miss Carter, Ally, Henry, Jo, Fargo, Zane, and the rest of Eureka’s residents! However, on Robin’s recommendation, we have started Warehouse 13, which Robin gave us for Christmas. I think I’m really going to like it.
