*This article on gender balance in YA award winners. As is everything these ladies post, it is fascinating and thought-provoking.
*Finally putting away the canning gear for the year. Not that I don't love canning. But it's been exhausting and hard on the old body. And I'm happy to have my kitchen a little less cluttered.
*Cozy fleece pjs, and the fact that they're needed. It was only 38 degrees again at bus stop time this morning.
*This adorable heron who just sat for the longest time up in a branch over the swamp yesterday. I don't think I've ever seen one sit up in a tree before.
*Making Christmas gifts. Love the momentum I have built up after the weekend. Of course, I still haven't finished the Halloween cards... :P
*Homeschool prep. Yeah, I know, this rarely makes the "good" stuff list...but I've been working on a short story unit we're going to be starting soon. And getting to read and sort through oodles of short stories to pick ones to use, and then getting to call it productivity to boot, well, that's pretty darn good!
*These little babies. (Though they also belong on the too-tempting-for-my-own-good stuff list.)
What the good stuff in your life today?
