Wow! Yesterday was really, really warm. Like major Spring-Almost-Summer warm! Weird. Today it is grey again and rain is forecast today, tomorrow, Saturday & Sunday...as well as falling temps. It is February after all.
Colin came over yesterday for dinner instead of tonight since the forecast was better. I made a new-to-me shrimp recipe but it was pretty meh...not one I will make again. We were afraid we might get rained out, but the moisture held off until later, so we had a little fire. I had gotten Fletch some of those pinecones you can throw in fires for pretty colors:
It was hard to capture, but you can see some of the green in the pic above. There were also brilliant blues.
Colin snapped this one of me and Fletch:
No knitting last night, but I am planning to work on the misbehaving mitt at lunch today.
Yesterday I did (finally) finish "The Woman Who Smashed Codes" during lunch. Such a good book and I feel as though my reading mojo is back now. I started This Book which is light reading - sort of a chick-lit type and so far it is ok...I'm only about 20% into it and feel like it may bore me at some point, but for now it is ok. Waiting in the wings is Glass Houses which I am anxious to read (the latest Inspector Gamache book).
That's it from me on this rainy Thursday. Hope you are all having a great week!
