It did indeed get up to 81 yesterday! Today is forecast to be a high of 71 which seems a bit more like April to me. I'm just happy to see the sun shining.
I'm happy to report there have been no further fox and cat episodes. I sort of expected to hear something since Tyg was out all night, but I never heard anything (windows wide open, and I was awake...as usual...for a bit of time in the middle of the night). Tyg was meowing at the back door when I came down this morning at 5:30 to start the coffee. He ate some and then wanted to go right back out. He is loving this weather!
There is not a lot of knitting to show. Days have been busy (and the weekend was too). I do not have an updated picture of Hitchhiker, but think I am now up to 25 teeth or so. Fortunately there has been no more unraveling on that! Last night I worked a bit on the South West sock and managed to put in the heel flap, heel turn and start on decreasing the gusset stitches.
I really am enjoying the colors in this project and love how the flap and heel turn worked out color-wise.
The reading front is as it has been. My Kindle is acting up again and I've been unable to access any books on it. This seems to happen every single time it updates. I believe I need to restart it and that should do the trick (but of course I couldn't remember that last night!). I did read another story in "Islands" by Alistair MacLeod. So good, but so sad too. I just can't read more than one of these without taking a break.
Meanwhile, we leave for vacation on Saturday! I'm off Friday and don't go back to work till May 7th. We will be camping some and staying with relatives some - all of it in Virginia - Charlottesville, Richmond, Suffolk and Chincoteaque Island. I've already mapped out some yarn shops to visit (hoping to have time to do this). I need to figure out what projects I want to take to work on - and whether it will be just knitting or knitting and stitching projects. Friday will be a busy day - last minute groceries, packing, etc. And cleaning the bathrooms - I have to come home to clean bathrooms - lol. Definitely looking forward to getting away.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
