    What are you carrying? The June/July/August 2016 Edition

    preemptive apologies to those folks in the Southern Hemisphere, who are probably going to be very sick of us complaining about summer heat. *passes hot cocoa and cookies*

    We've done these in the past and I thought it would be fun to bring it back, especially since there have been so many new bag/color releases since the last time. If this is your first time playing, just reply to this thread with your answers to the following:

    1. What bag are you carrying?
    2. What are you reading?
    3. What are you listening to?
    4. What are you watching?
    5. What are you cooking/baking/drinking?
    6. Besides bags, are there things you like to collect?
    7. What are your summer travel plans? -or- What travel is on the horizon for you?

    and special thanks to @badger to whom all credit for this post should go since I totally copied it from their winter version Smilie

    1. What bag are you carrying?
    Most days I'm still alternating between my Aubergine/Steel Maker's Bag and a Swift but for now the Nordic/Steel one has been taking a back seat to Aubersky. Since it's summer all the backpacks (S25,S19, and daylight) are in the rotation too. And, of course, I've always got my trusty Aubergine/UV SE with me.

    2. What are you reading?
    I recently finished 32 Yolks which was fantastic. Now I'm slowly (not because it's bad but because I don't want it to end) reading The Velvet Hours by Alyson Richman.

    3. What are you listening to?
    Lots of Adele--much to my hubby's dismay and audiobooks although I need to start a new one and can't decide. Any recs?

    4. What are you watching?
    Outlander!

    5. What are you cooking/baking/drinking?
    Lots of iced coffee, and anything with avocados.

    6. Besides bags, are there things you like to collect?
    Like always books and yarn, but since the last time we did this I've also apparently started to collect fountain pens. A habit which I'm 100% blaming on this forum, lol!

    7. What are your summer travel plans? -or- What travel is on the horizon for you?
    No summer travel plans for me but I might be going to Baltimore in the fall.

    Black Halcyon Makers Bag with black halcyon SE with COW. I am enjoying this SE so much more than last time I had one. I keep my little umbrella, wallet and meds in it so I can take it in anywhere. Just got some shop bags and am putting everything in them.

    Whatever is on my phone, mostly 80s with some new mixed in-One Republic, Vance Joy and Ray LaMontagne.

    4. What are you watching?
    Just watched The Night Manager again, and finished up How I Met Your Mother with my oldest.

    Thanks, @jess, for getting this thread going! It's one of my favorites.

    1. What bag are you carrying?
    All the Nordic! Usually a cafe bag -- size varies depending on what I'm doing that day. Today I have the LCB because I didn't need to bring extra stuff so no second bag. Work bag rotates between the Nordic/UV Swift, Nordic/UV Maker's Bag, and Nordic/NWS DLBC. As I said, all the Nordic :-) Also my Aubergine/Wasabi NFTD does duty as a gym bag.

    2. What are you reading?

    Beach novels (think Mary Kay Andrews and Elin Hilderbrand) and Scandinavian crime fiction.

    3. What are you listening to?

    NPR and knitting podcasts.

    4. What are you watching?

    Nothing -- I don't really do TV and I can't do movies right now since the TV/guest room is still a mess from the toilet flood we had in May (fun times).

    5. What are you cooking/baking/drinking?

    Caprese salad, what the Germans call "Abendbrot," and lots of Rosť since it's too hot for anything else.

    6. Besides bags, are there things you like to collect?

    All the yarn.

    7. What are your summer travel plans? -or- What travel is on the horizon for you?

    Just returned from two weeks in Iceland/Germany/France and am planning to trip to Toronto in July (to visit @peregrina!) and a weekend in Minneapolis for Labor Day.

    I love audio books!! Have you listened to "The luminaries"? One of my favourites over the past two years!

    Also 'The Secret Fate of Mary Watson', anything by Tim Winton, Phyne Fisher mysteries are very light but fun (I prefer to listen to them then read them), 'The Amber Fury' (wonderful Scottish accents)!

    Thanks for the thought! Any chance we can retitle this "what are you carrying? The June/July edition"? I love these and like that people reply regardless of hemisphere, but it would be nice to make it more obviously inclusive.

    As I sit here drinking hot tea, fire blazing, wrapped in blankets and still freezing. Yes, I'm very wimpy about the cold...

    WINTER is here edition

    1. What bag are you carrying?
    Aub/was swift which I love and use daily. I so miss a cross body bag, but just can't go back to my MCB as I am now used to the bucket dump-it-all-in swift! With various stuff sacks, OPs and a COW.

    2. What are you reading?
    'Freedom' by Jeremy Frantzon, which I am captivated by and stayed up too late reading last night, but not sure I enjoy it. I just finished 'The Paying Guests' by Sarah Waters which I loved.

    3. What are you listening to?
    Audiobook - Bill Bryson, One Summer. And still getting over that this is what he sounds like. Somehow I 'pictured' him with a very different accent.

    4. What are you watching?
    'The Great British Bake-Off' old episodes as a great whole family show. Inspiring lots of baking too which suits the season. Meant to be watching Game of Thrones but hard to stay away late enough. I'll get to it eventually so please no spoilers!

    5. What are you cooking/baking/drinking?
    Lots of cakes. See above.

    6. Besides bags, are there things you like to collect?
    Is there anything else except TB?

    7. What are your summer travel plans? -or- What travel is on the horizon for you?
    See the opera in Brisbane in a few weeks. My daughter is going to the snow next week with school and using my aubergine aeronaut 45.

    Good point. I'd totally rename it if I could but it won't let me...maybe an admin can do it?
