People. It is November. In two days we’ll have at least some sort of idea how this election will go, even if we don’t have the results yet. I am so ready to move beyond this moment. Whichever candidate wins (please God let it be the sane one) I can either hunker down for a longer fight or hunker down to harass our side to do better. Either way, I can quit stress eating. I hope. In the meantime, let’s look back at the last week of October.

How much floss did I think I was going to need?

I don’t know why my lunches always have to be so complicated. For the record, that avocado was so huge that I saved half of it to have on my leftover pizza the next day.

Yarn porn. It’s soft & squishy and I can’t wait to play with it!

This is one of those things that I just make myself do. I really (really) don’t like needles, but so many people are unable to give blood that I just can’t let myself off the hook here. It takes less than an hour.

We had the remnants of tropical storm Zeta blow through – heavy rain and high winds combined to topple a number of trees in our area. We also lost power, but were luckier than some in that it came back on before the end of the day.
After the storm.

We went all out this year. It was fun!

I decided to get out my yarn swift & wind my new yarn, even though it will be a bit before I can start on that project. Such a satisfying task!
Nadia Bolz-Weber is hosting an Instagram live event on Tuesday called Keeping it Together, where different guests (Brene Brown! Bishop Michael Curry! Padraig O Tuama!) offer a meditation at the top of each hour. I’m thinking of asking my boss if I can just shut my door for a few minutes each hour to participate. I wonder if it will help? In any case, as soon as I post this blog post I am going to start Operation Chill the Bug because I am not going to be in this high state of tension for the next week. What are your plans for election day (week) (month)?
