  • Ring of Fire III
  • Weaving primer
  • Vikings: a history

What illnesses or health concerns did I have?

Allergies are definitely kicking up more. Although they seem to be more frequent as minor sinus pressure that may lead to headaches.

Anything else noteworthy to include?

Taught another youngling the beginnings of knitting. And more are interested.

What clarity did I achieve this month?

Rest is essential to my functionality. I really would like to get to bed earlier. I’m going to try an experiment of setting an alarm thirty minutes before I would like to be in bed. We’ll see how well it works.

Also a reminder that I really do need quiet time. This month has been busy. I am scheduling some alone time NOW for November.
