Welcome July

Good Morning!

Happy July!  This will be a short week at work which is always welcome.  I'm working today and tomorrow and probably a half day on Wednesday and that's it!

How was your weekend?  Mine was filled with all kinds of good things.  I was able to leave by 12:30 on Friday and I stopped by our local library on the way home.  It's been a long time since I visited, but I've been wanting to read Fox 8 for quite some time and neither of our libraries have been offering it on Overdrive.  I knew there was a copy available in "real" book format and I got it.  I plopped myself down in a chair on our patio and read the book in one sitting (it's not long by any means - more like a short story).  Such a good tale.  If you have not read it, I highly recommend.  After that Fletch and I ran out and did the grocery shopping (2 p.m. on a Friday is a great time to go!!).

Saturday I met Dee at the Lansdale Farmers market and then we headed over to Backyard Beans for some knitting/chatting/coffee therapy.  Always a nice time to get together with Dee!

Sunday was a gorgeous day.  Low humidity and a breeze all day long.  I did a bunch of chores in the morning and then relaxed all afternoon.  The Rabbit Hole sock is progressing.


Since that picture early last night a bit more has been knit.  I worked on it while watching Endeavour (and how can next week be the Season Finale already???  We've only seen 3 episodes so far!) and the foot is now finished.  I brought it along with me to work today and hope to do the toe decrease area at lunch.

Here's to a great week for everyone!

  1. Enjoy the short work week after your lovely weekend! I really liked Fox 8 and am glad you did, too. There are never enough episodes in a season of Endeavour for me!

  2. I loved Fox 8. And Endeavour is far, far too short for me, too. Enjoy your "short week" -- short on work; long on relaxing! XO

  3. I'm currently looking for books, so I'll take a look at Fox 8 (I have to laugh; that's a news channel here in NEO).

    We're headed to the lake for most of the week/weekend. I wish we could take yesterday's weather with us!

  6. The sock is so pretty-is it orange with bits of blue or is it more pink-I can't tell. Remember when shows would run from Sept to June?! I'm showing my age....

  7. The whole weekend was great and your suggestion of the grill for the pattypan squash turned out wonderful. We both liked the grilled version. The seabeans ---well, maybe not so much. They are okay in small amounts, but I don't think I'd get those again. LOL

  8. I hope work goes smoothly for you this week. Dennis is taking Friday off so it will be a short week for him too, although we have a busy weekend planned.
    I'm glad you had such a good weekend and a fun time with Dee. As always, I'm jealous of your time together. :-)
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  14. I loved Fox 8, and really think it's a book that's better in print. I am so sad that Endeavour is almost over. I'm looking forward to the long weekend, too. SOON!!
