Annual warm clothing drive time here.
I also made a pair of fingerless gloves for my amputee friend. She can wear them when she goes outside in her wheelchair for a cigarette. Smoke breaks are cold here in Wisconsin winters.

I finished The Absent One by Jussi Adler-Olsen; two stars. I figured out why it was taking me so long to read it: it dragged for me. Plus, there were occasional sentences or paragraphs that fell like clunkers in my head, which I blame on the translation. Annoying.
Currently reading The Passage by Justin Cronin. It seems fairly gripping, which is good because it is >700 pages long. I think I may need to step up my reading, though — an hour a night is not gonna cut it. On the down side, it turns out that it is first book in a trilogy. Not sure if I want to commit to that. If this one drags at all, I am outta there.
In my ears: I started Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. This was actually a bit of a mistake; I wanted to get Celeste Ng’s previous book, the one before Little Fires Everywhere, but after reading the description I realized that I had read it a couple years ago. So I guess I clicked on this one because it was recommended. Hard to say, really. Anyhow, it seems okay after the first hour.
