This month I managed to read not just one, but two books for the 1962 Club – though I blogged about only one of them. I also read two forthcoming releases by authors I’ve enjoyed in the past. Around the World got a nod, as did my Spiritual Memoir challenge. Plus a biography of one of my favorite authors, which naturally led to me having to read one of his books.
Definitely a good reading month! How was it for you?

My language learning and teaching activities are on hold, as I find that coping with life takes up enough of my time. I’ve also been busy with the editing process for my forthcoming book, so the English language has been more my focus. That’s been an interesting process, since it’s been a while since I received such intense feedback on my writing. Humbling, but good! I’ll share more in my newsletter, The Enchanted Circle, for those who are interested.
We went to Meiringen for a couple of days, a lovely trip I posted about here.
My son provided some new blog graphics on my request, and says he’s happy to paint more. It’s great to have an artist in the house.
Other than that, our fall vacation was spent puttering around our new apartment, and on my side, being slightly sick — just a bit under the weather. I’m starting to feel better now, fortunately.
I got out a sweater I knitted a few years ago out of my handspun wool following a pattern from The Knitting Experience: The Knit Stitch. I loved the sweater, except that the sleeves were much too wide under the arms and that made it bulky and awkward. I decided to unravel them and reknit them.
Hopefully I’ll have a finished project to share next time. As a bonus, I’ll end up with leftover wool to knit something else! What’s in progress for you this month?
