Last night our absentee ballots arrived in our inboxes from the State of Maine. Next week we will print them out at the library, cast our votes, and post them back across the pond.
Also last night while listening to some beautiful Bach cantatas, I finished Bill's blue beanie.
There is a chilly wind blowing at the moment, so another hat will be useful. We were talking the other day about how convenient it is to have various hats for various kinds of weather. We were out in wind and rain at the time and when we got home, we both took off the hats we were wearing outside and set them aside to dry before pulling dry hats on. We have to go out for a bit in the morning and rain is forecast, so our hats will come in handy once again. We are waiting to see what the remnants of storm Karl will do. If he merges with a regular low pressure system things will track one way, I guess, and if he doesn't, we'll be experiencing a bit more of him. Whatever happens, some pretty strong winds are on the way and some amount of rain.
My toes were feeling the chill this morning, so I was happy to be able to rummage around in my small winter sock drawer and pull out these old friends.
Cosy hats and socks--still more reasons to love autumn! Hope your weekend is cosy too!
