Well Hello Friends,
A chilly Unraveled Wednesday here...snow forecast for this afternoon and someone just told me another Nor'Easter is possible next Tuesday (which is the first day of Spring...and my Mom's birthday - she would be 99 this year!!). And today is Pi Day which I completely forgot about!!
Colin has been making smoothies for breakfast because he leaves for work so early. I decided to try one. Last night I blended up spinach, half an apple, some fresh ginger, the last of the blackberries, some carrot juice and a few ice cubes. It is just ok (and I miss chewing my breakfast!!). But...I'll see how I feel in a little bit (whether or not I'm hungry). I really need to eat protein in the a.m. and this has none in it...maybe I'll try adding some Greek yogurt and some almonds. Do any of you make smoothies? And, if so, what do you put in them?
I have not done a lot of knitting, but here is where the first sock is right now:
The leg (cuff to heel flap) is 10" and I'm part-way through the foot. I'd like to finish this and get the second one started before I lose interest. I love the sock, but after the two horizontal braids, it is just plain knitting (and long) (and a tad boring). I keep thinking of other things I'd like to start
Fell in love with this pattern the other day. Hmmmmm. And there's a shawl I want to make (or 2 or 3) and some more fingerless mitts. Stay tuned.
On the reading front, I mentioned the other day that I finished Glass Houses - the latest in the Gamache stories by Louise Penny. As with her other books, this one did not disappoint. I am about a third of the way through Manhattan Beach and enjoying it. I just need to stay awake a little bit more (still suffering from the time change).
Work is work - not too busy, not too slow. We are having a St. Patty's Day luncheon tomorrow.
The weekend is supposed to be a little warmer (I think). I've got errands to run on Saturday - back to the tax accountant that morning to sign off (and pay) so that they can be e-filed and then running around. I have a huge printer I need to get to Staples to recycle (Yay - that will be one more thing off the floor and out of the office room!!). I'd like to go through my yarn and see what I have (preparing for the Allentown Fiber Festival in 4 weeks or so).
What's up with you mid-week? Hope all is well.
