I've read several books of the best 20 and agree with you on The Warmth of Other Suns. Also, Alexievich's book, even a thumb through, will open your eyes to the current situation in Russia. Thank your for opening our eyes to so much about language and literature!
I also have not heard of Honey nut squash, but I'm going to put Smith on it so we'll have seeds to grow our own next year! (Our WFs does not have it.)

I have stayed away from Airy for sweaters, but now I want to knit Marklee with Airy!

He's got the hat on which means he can be a fan without watching ALL the game.

Walking through a museum is one of my favorite things. We have so few museums in SLC.

I also have no UFOs, technically, because I try to knit a row or two on all three things on my needles.

The Grand Canyon is so long, so epically large and magnificent. Your pictures show the amazing scope of sky, rock, strata, and grandness!

You have the cold that gripped us the last week of October. "January like" was so hard to take! It's now 60 and I hope the warmth heads your way, too. My winter hibernation period started early because of "the knee". Cozy blankets, the larger shawls cover my shoulders, and I root vegetables are more often part of the meal plan.
You continue to chronicle the story of Rusty's family and add to the discovery of a treasure trove of family photos. Ali looks so much like Rusty in that photo!

That crunch of leaves as been my reward for walking. The temperatures here are in the 60s (yay!) and yesterday I walked Mylo, who was very sweet and tried to be "good" and not pull on the lease. I'm almost Thankful for my knee, but another week and I'll be able to sing its praises.
I did try needle felting oh so many years ago, but never opted to buy supplies. I KNEW I'd end up with holes in my fingers. Your pumpkin is just charming!!

Isn't it an amazing place!? It always stuns me even though I've seen a few times.

I love Jad Abrumrad and he's the reason I want to listen to the podcast. He was interviewed Friday on our local RadioWest program/podcast. I look up words on my phone (dictionary app) when they jump out at me as something new or strange. Anechoic is a word I've never seen or heard before.

This post just makes me so happy! I love reading your words (I hear your voice). At least you are knitting (and acquiring yarn). I wish to pet yarn but haven't even done that. (I need to talk to Kim.) Barrow sounds so hearty and warm. You are lucky to have a stash to dive into. Rowan Magpie is quite a find!

I'm not concerned about your refrigerator as mine hasn't been thoroughly cleaned in forever! Maybe I'll put it on my November list. Congratulations to Lauren for passing the bar!
I'm going to enjoy your NaBloPoMo and your iPhone photos. I have a 7 and would love to upgrade, but I'm not the photographer you are, nor the techy. Plus, I guess I'm cheap.

I am all for #3, although Smith will eat anything. The best strategy we've found is to not be home on Halloween. It's a good night out to go for fine dining. :)
Since it's so cold here we're hoping the kids won't bother, but then, they rarely show up anyway. Happy, safe, and joyful travels!
