Things that Currently Interest Me, Autumnal Edition

1. Barbecue chicken pizza

2. Vintage Vera Neumann scarves

3. The Haunting of Hill House, and the brilliance that was/is Shirley Jackson

4. Getting all my holiday shopping done before Thanksgiving, most if it done in antique stores, local businesses, and via Etsy

5. Honeycrisp apples, preferably with cheese (check out the Robusto at Whole Foods — you won't be sorry)

6. Informally committing to NaNoWriMo, and formally committing to not letting this novel kick my ass

7. Turkey, stuffing, gravy, and pie ordered pre-made, leaving just a few low-stress side dishes to make myself

8. Maintaining my green thumb by keeping all my indoor plants alive

9. Stripy wool tights

10. Being thankful for everything, every day

And you?


  1. Ditto on the apples...I'm fully addicted!!
    Love your new blog...

  2. I love the idea of BBQ chicken pizza, but it's always too sweet. Where do you go for yours?

  3. OPI nail polish
    The Power of Myth DVDs with Bill Moyers & Joseph Campbell
    My guitar and the tricky F chord

    Way to go with NaNo, girl!

  4. Lana: Thanks! And miss you! xoxo

    Terry: Whole Foods makes a barbecue chicken pizza as part of their "365" line. They use smoked gouda for the cheese, and it is delicious!

    SW: I'm a big fan of OPI. I'm wearing "Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ" right now!

  5. 1. Reading A Word from the Bird on my lunch break ;o)
    2. Caramelized pear green tea
    3. Last Night in Twisted River by John Irving
    4. Walking my dogs through the fallen leaves
    5. Trying new recipes with every kind of winter squash

    I just bought some aged Spanish Manchego. I wonder how that would pair with Honeycrisp?
