Equinox Unraveling

While biking between appointments this afternoon, I decided to stop by a sunny patio at a local café for a little while to pass the time. We’re due for more than an inch of rain tomorrow, so this seemed like a smart move for my mental wellbeing. It was just 50 degrees, but in the sun it felt quite pleasant in just my sweatshirt and cowl.

While there, I had an apple muffin and a pot of Earl Grey tea and followed it up with a bowl of white bean and kale soup when I decided I should eat something before volleyball.

I read some and knit. The shawl is too awkward to travel with, so this is the first of the stockinette socks I have on the go, which works well for multitasking. I’ve got about an inch before I decrease for the toe.

On the reading front, I’m still working through Early Riser, which I’m now only reading during the day because it’s filled with bad dreams and zombies and evil corporations, none of which I want to be thinking about before bed, as well as two audiobooks, A Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy and Creative Quest. In the past two days, I’ve started the charming graphic novel The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang (It’s the tale of a 17th century seamstress who, after making one scandalous dress for a Parisian ball, becomes the personal designer for a prince who’d like to secretly go out in society in dresses) and A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos, about a magical girl who’s been betrothed to a stranger. I also resumed How To Find Fulfilling Work by Roman Krznaric with the intention of finishing it off. I’m hopeful it will have some useful advice. (It’s already made me feel better about my paralysis about the direction of my life; I’m hoping its next step will be to prod me problem-solving.)

What an awesome way to spend the day! Hmmm, this book sounds interesting! I think I need to read it!

I finished “Early Riser,” which got better as it went along. I am now reading Kory Stamper’s “Word by Word,” which you gave to me, and I am enjoying it very much.

I agree with Karen’s assessment of “Early Riser” getting better as it went along, and without spoiling too much if the presence of zombies in the story is one of your big objections, that gets better, too.
