Worth getting up for in October: a weekend with my sister and my mom, and my extended family, in Augusta; the hot-dipped pan fried chicken from Keaton’s BBQ in Rowan County; all five of my cousins’ children, only two of whom I had met; the new Head and the Heart record; seeing Jonny Rodgers play wine glasses, which is still astonishing me; two visits with my family; smart financial decisions; my dumb Sims-like dragon game on my iPad; mental health; great advice plus also baby pictures from my college BFF Sid; my boss’s stupid shutdown beard; a mortgage approval; house hunting; Oktoberfest in Saxapahaw; Sarah Shook covering Hank; J. Roddy Walston & the Business; a Friday afternoon off; eating lots of places with my parents and my sister and shep. and loads of cousins; three stops on the 100 Foods tour; the cozy cave that is my bed with flannel sheets; naps with cats; the Goathouse benefit; buying a Pentax K1000 and getting a Nikon EM with a sharp 50mm lens for free; film photos shot on a sunny October afternoon along a river; Oregon football, for some reason; naps in general.
