Gosh it is a beautiful morning in Eastern PA, but my brain is foggy and I am so ready for a nap (it's 8 a.m. as I type this...). Our property is made up of two lots - the lot our house is on and the 2nd lot we own behind that which is wooded. Beyond our woods there is a field and then a plant - Streamlight - which manufactures flashlights and other stuff. Streamlight has construction going on for an additional building (guess business is good!). It's been annoying in the afternoon when the work crews are still working after 5 p.m. and we are trying to enjoy a beverage on our patio. Lots of banging and clanging and back-up beeping going on. Heavy construction vehicles. Well, last night (this morning) we were awakened at 3 a.m. to Major Noise. Fletch ended up going downstairs and sleeping on the sofa. I closed our back bedroom window and turned the ceiling fan on high and eventually fell back asleep. Oy vey! I'm betting Fletch will be calling Streamlight - or the township - today to complain.
Not a lot of knitting has happened, but no unraveling. Yesterday at lunch I knit outside and managed to turn the heel, pick up the gusset stitches and start going down the foot:
Still hoping to finish this week....
On the reading front, not much has been going on either. I started The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah last weekend. But gosh! What a cast of dysfunctional, abusive, cruel people. I got about halfway through it but just was not enjoying it at all. So, I quit. Very unusual for me to get that far along in a book and not finish, but life is too short to read stuff that you don't enjoy. Last night I started Mrs. Hemingway by Naomi Wood. I've only read a few chapters, but am enjoying it. Lighter reading for sure.
Joining in with Kat and others this hump day. Hope everyone's week is going well.
