Mid-Week thank goodness. This week has been super busy for me at work and, so far, the evenings are also full of "things" to do.
At work, our CEO's assistant is out with a torn ham string (OUCH) in 3 (yes, 3!!) places. So, when she is out, Bobby (CEO) wants me to be "on call" for him. He is a wonderful guy, but I already support two Presidents, so it makes for busy days. It's all good...I prefer to be busy, and it's good to be liked by the CEO - lol.
Monday night was yoga and last night I finally ran to the grocery store. When I got home at 9:30, there was laundry in the dryer and another load in the washer. There is still more to do...as well as cleaning (particularly bathrooms) and some food prep which I will do Thursday evening. Also more grocery shopping (I didn't buy any meat for weekend cookouts last night).
All of this is to say, not much (if any) knitting has taken place. I did read a bit last night before bed and am loving "The Shell Seekers." It will be my first square on my Summer Book Bingo. And, a few more books popped up from my hold list at the library, so they have been downloaded onto my Kindle. Now I just need a bit more time.
We had some gentle rain overnight. It sounded like a lullaby. This morning the sun was beginning to peek out and it was around 58 on my patio. I took my coffee outside and sat and listened to the birds and then, look what I spotted:
Yup - the beginnings of apples. And, from the looks of it this will be a bumper year! There are always a bunch that fall off when they are small (golf ball size or so), but there are already many more forming than we had last year. Fletch and I will be busy this fall making applesauce - YUM!
I need to think of food for Sunday! Friday we will have some deviled eggs and cold shrimp to munch on late afternoon -- and cocktails, of course! For dinner I think Fletch will grill burgers, veggie burgers and portabella mushrooms. We've got all kinds of stuff to load on top of those. And I'll make a corn and black bean salad. I'm hoping it will be nice enough for a fire in the pit and we can just toast marshmallows or something. Saturday we will all be at my nephew's party, but Sunday I need some kind of dinner food. I'll figure it out - there's still time.
Meanwhile, it's a busy Wednesday morning at work and I am off-site for a couple of hours mid-day, so I'd best get cranking.
Hope everyone's week is going well.
