Happy Wednesday! Well now it is officially fall, and it truly feels as though 2020 is flying by. As the temperatures cool down, I’ve been cozying up with some of my comfy sweaters. That said, this week I have quite a bit of new favorites to share. So, without further adue, here are my favorites this week:
Many of you know that I have been crocheting for over a year now and have made quite a few projects. Due to the pandemic, I haven’t been able to take classes to enhance my skills. During an Instagram rabbit hole search, I decided to check them out. I ended up purchasing five different patterns, including the Basic Infinity Scarf, and the New Moon cozy – which are the ones that I’ve made. What I love about these patterns is that not only are they fun to make is that they are easy to follow. So many of my patterns aren’t the most beginner-friendly, which makes them frustrating to follow. That said, these are so much different than the previous ones –in the best way possible.
House of Salt and Sorrow by Erin Craig:
I keep on talking about books with good reason. I picked this one up to the recommendation of Hailey from Bookland and now cannot put it down. I finished this book yesterday and I was obsessed. The book is about Annaleigh Thaumas and her cursed family. Her family is cursed because her mother and four sisters have passed away in mysterious ways. Annaleigh is convinced that there is something behind her sisters’ deaths and despite discovering a mysterious magical world, is looking for answers. Like I said, I am obsessed with this book. It is one of those books that I discovered on a whim and I am so glad that I did. If you are looking for something spooky this year – or something that you can’t put down – then I highly recommend this one.
I recently downloaded ios14, and discovered the app Wigit thanks to Kathryn June’s YouTube channel. Basically, WigitSmith is a way to download little wigits onto your home screen. It is free, but you can upgrade it as well. Some of the wigits are pretty cool, including the moon phases, the time when the sun rises and sets, and a larger version of a calendar. If you want a more aesthetically pleasing home screen, I highly you checking out this app. Furthermore, I am really enjoying the features of iOS 14. I love having an organized phone and have since organized my apps into folders. Doing so has made it so much easier to locate my apps that I use all of the time.

It’s been a while since I found an album that I’ve enjoyed from start to finish. Recently, I heard I Hope on the radio, and loved it. That said, I decided to check out some of her other stuff. Since then, I’ve loved this album. It’s a mix of country and pop, and has a mixture of songs that you can rock out or slow dance to. My favorite songs, other than I hope, include Jesus and My Mama and Hall of Fame.
