The clouds are hanging low in the sky today and the overall color is gray. It's not quite cold enough to snow, so we'll likely get some rain at some point. I'd much rather see some of the fluffy white stuff falling from those clouds.

I started another scarf.
It's my "At First Frost Scarf" that I wrote about earlier in the week.
I'm going to block this one a bit more once it's complete. I'll see if I can get the stitch pattern to really pop.
I'm using the same brand of yarn, but in a different colorway. It's a blue/lavender called Mineral Heather. This scarf is for my sister. I already told her about it, so it isn't a surprise.

On the reading front, ...
I'm in 4th grade short stories with dear son.
Most of the stories have two or three chapters, with some being more interesting that others.
The curriculum has started to introduce stories on WWII. Last week we read a story about a man who lived in Hungary during the war. He and his family escaped toward the end of the war and eventually came to America. It was interesting and opened up a good dialog between dear son and me.
I'm also reading ODB on the Kindle. I like to sit in my favorite chair in the family room with my first cup of coffee and read this each day.
I hope whatever you are reading, or project you are working on brings some simple pleasures to your day.
I'm linking up with Ginny at Small Things for her weekly Yarn Along.
