...it's been a long week and I'm ready for an adult beverage.
The garden is looking pretty sad right now. While we still have salvia and other flowers blooming, I have taken way too many pictures of them this year. Instead, you get this morning's sunrise:
It's hard to see it in this size, but there is a little crescent of a moon in the upper right quadrant.
Up this weekend: Tonight, we're going to make some individual pizzas for dinner. I
stopped by Trader Joe's this morning to get the ingredients: frozen
naan, pizza sauce, a 4-cheese blend, and some sliced pepperoni. Using

will be a small crew this time. I'm just happy to be spinning. I haven't
touched my wheel since the last Spin-In, which means that I need to
finish the fiber I started last time.

Craft-wise, I have resurrected the Halos of Hope hat I started in August. I'll time-share between the hat and the project for the Daughter. I want her to try it on when she's here next week to make sure that the sleeve length is OK.
