found, festive, and fall bounty

We still haven’t sorted out our WiFi woes, so I figured I should post this before I left the office so I don’t have to thumb type another post. (Actually the typing is fine. It’s the photo placement that’s a pain going over 4G, as anyone who saw the original image placement in last night’s post surely realized.)

Anyway, here are three beautiful things from my past week:

1. My misplaced wallet turned out to have been carefully hidden away in the pocket of my bag. (I didn’t panic because my sunglasses were also AWOL, so I’d assumed they were partying together at work after hours, but it’s still nice to be reunited and to know my credit cards weren’t out on a spending spree.)

2. I have Halloween-themed lights up both at work and at home. (There may also have been some Halloween candy purchased.)

3. My Sunday market basket included two ginormous stalks of broccoli, a massive bunch of kale, and four petite butternut squash (not quite honey nut size, but as close as I could find). (It also included a bag of Roma tomatoes, which I’m hoping will turn themselves into a delicious soup.)

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?

unraveled in october: pumpkins & ghosts
posted by soe 1:27 am

Our WiFi is down so this will be a quick post.

Unraveled in October

As you can see, I’m on the cuff of Little Pumpkin sock #2. Rudi will be working a bunch the next few days, so I expect to get another good chunk done by the weekend. I finished the audiobook of Daniel José Older’s Shadowshaper tonight & highly recommend it if you’re looking for an urban contemporary ghost story for this season.

Up next is another book set in the immigrant communities of NYC: You Bring the Distant Near, which I started last weekend. So far, so good.
