I feel like my life is getting back on track after several busy, eventful weeks. I turned in my indexing project and started on the next one. I’m also working on choosing and ordering music for the fall concert. I’ve finished a knitting project, ordered wool for another (both scarves, both Christmas gifts), and made headway on the laundry that got put on hold during last week’s plumbing problems. And I’m catching back up on the blog, though I still need to get out and visit a lot of you all!
I’m also adjusting a bit better this fall to Robin being gone. I miss her, of course! I miss fangirling over books, I miss hugs and laughing together and taking her out to practice her driving. But I hear from her often, which helps a lot. She’s doing well even though the class she’s taking during block has a lot of homework.* And I’m doing pretty well at home.
So. . . I’m feeling pretty good about life this week. How about you?
* Robin’s college has an odd schedule: a not-quite-4-week block course at the beginning of the semester, followed by about 11 weeks of a more “normal” semester where you take 3 or sometimes 4 classes. Most courses are 4 credits. It gets pretty intense.

Bought or free for my Kindle:
This is embarrassing. I had an e-ARC of The Thinking Woman’s Guide to Real Magic last year, but got in a time crunch and only read about 1/2 of it (maybe 3/5) before I had to write the review. I was straight-up about that in the review, but of course, the e-ARC expired before I could get back to the book. So now, I’m finally going to get to finish it. I hope!
Have a wonderful week and happy reading!
