on fog in the morning & other random thoughts...
That most unwelcome of visitors, Miss Insomnia has come calling somewhere between 2 and 3 a.m. most nights this week. I wish she'd get the hint that I just don't appreciate her visits. I've been so bold as to tell her not to stop by, but night after night, there she is. So rude! To redeem the time, I've been knitting. Lots. And praying. And reading. Three beanies and a long scarf flew off my needles and I even cast on a secret project for my blog swap partner. Due to Internet connection woes, I wasn't able to join in Ginny's yarn along earlier this week, so I'm just sharing here. (I'm not even sure if this post is going to make it -- someone from CenturyLink is supposed to be by later this afternoon...)
In need of something a little lighter than my most recent reading, I pulled our copy of Writings of a Deliberate Agrarian off the shelf. A collection of essays on the good life that reminds me why we made the choice to buy land and live so far from town. Herrick blogs here if you want to take a peek.
Warmer weather with lots of sunshine is rumored to be heading our way this weekend. After a week of fall-like weather here in the foothills, I'm looking forward to it. Foggy mornings are beautiful, though, even when the fog doesn't lift until late morning, but too many days of them can be dreary. Not that the break from the summer heat hasn't been nice, but I think I'm in need a good dose of sun. :)
