 For the first time in weeks I feel like I might actually almost be on top of what I need to get done going into this week. 

I've been thinking about tragedy probably more than I should in light of the deaths in Paris and the bombings in Beirut and everywhere else where people are losing their lives to senseless violence. There is no antidote to senseless violence but if there was, I would imagine that it would be purposeful kindness. With that in mind, I am resolved to do my part to be kind even when it is hard and perhaps especially then. 

I haven't been writing much lately, but when I start again, expect the return of Six Sentence Sunday.

I'm planning Thanksgiving dinner this week. It'll be quiet this year, just three of us. I'm planning on making whole roasted cauliflower, corn bread, cranberry sauce, a vegetarian version of this stuffing, this turkey breast, the pie I mentioned yesterday and spiced cupcakes probably modified from this recipe which is always one of my go-tos.

Other recipes I'm feeling right now are these butter sandwich cookies and these glazed cookies.

After Flare Path, I've got the 40s on the brain. I'm loving this style board and this one with knitting. There were some really great sweaters going on. 

Speaking of knitting, it's yarn season. I'm making this scarf for my mum and when I finish that, it's on to these gloves for my friend and this hat for our neighbors new baby. 

It's my baby sister's birthday next week and I don't know what to get her. I got her this book last year. I've been thinking about arts and crafts stuff. I remember loving this shrink plastic kit but it might be a little old for her. I'll also be making cake of course. I'm hoping for something like this frosting wise. 

I haven't been reading lately but there are a lot of middle grade books on my to-read-list including The Glass Sentence, When You Reach Me, The Boundless, The Apothecary and many more. I also just finished Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo and it was great. 

Poem of the Week
from The Hard Season by Kathleen Lynch

Don't hold back now, have
chocolate, throw extra
 
kindling on, even though
skies urge cover & hoarding.
When mice pitter in
 
for crumbs, compliment
their small feet and fitting
ways. When your mouth
 
houses a curse, swallow,
think how you once
had no words at all
 
yet managed
your hungers.
