Things I Love: Rainy Days, but not this many…

Autumn has arrived not with a bang, but with a squish.

Western North Carolina is saturated! Since the Equinox, we’ve had more rain than the earth can absorb. Gutters are overflowing, mud puddles are growing, and roads are slick with rainfall. And right on cue, we got hit with the reach of Hurricane Joaquin who sent more waves of water on the way. I’m blessed to be warm and dry and drinking coffee while wearing my comfy bee-striped onesie for the duration of the weekend!

Eric and I are safe where we are, but there’s been a good deal of damage all across the Carolinas and the east coast, in general. I’m lighting candles and sending thoughts of safety to everyone in the line of the storms – poor South Carolina is in for more rain today.

Because of all of this mushy, chill weather, I’ve begun to switch out tee-shirts for flannels and tank tops for light sweaters. I’ve also begun to shop for new sweaters for the winter as many of mine are nearly dissolving from being worn and so well loved. I’ve always loved to ogle the knitwear at TheIrishStore.com (for whom I am now a happy affiliate!). If you are as keen on Irish jumpers as I am, check them out here and save 10% on a sweater purchase made before October 31, 2015 with code AFFKNIT10.
