I am just so sleepy this morning. I seem to be going through another phase of waking at 3 a.m. and never getting back to sleep. Nothing going through my head, no worries, just moonlight streaming into the bedroom and me wide awake! Hopefully I won't nod off at my desk today - lol.
The weekend was a mixed bag. Lots of frustrations about various things. But Saturday was so nice. I met up with Dee and we went to Echo Valley for some fiber enhancement. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture, but I bought a lovely skein of Hedge Hog Fiber Sock Yarn in the colorway Hawk. Gorgeous. We went out to lunch and then to a coffee shop for some knitting. I started a new pair of socks (no, the watermelon ones are not finished yet - not even the first!!), but I ended up ripping them out. Somewhere along the way I messed up and my count was way off. I tried *tinking* what I had knit, but the pattern had so many K2 tog, SSK and YO parts to it that it was a mess to do that, so I just pulled the needles out and re-wound the yarn. I will try again.
Before I left my house Saturday morning, guess who showed up? Mr. Fox went loping across the backyard and Tyg who was on the patio ran out to the garden to join him. Yikes! The fox did run off when he saw me and Tyg came back to the house thank goodness. Then Sunday morning this guy showed up.
He had been under our apple tree munching on some fallen fruit. A little later a doe showed up too.
One of my frustrations: Sunday I went to 5 different stores looking for kitchen curtains. No one sells them these days! They carry floor length drapes, but no short curtains. I guess I will need to buy them on line, but I would really prefer to see them in person before purchasing. I could make them (which is what I did the last time), but honestly I don't feel like it! I will continue to look a bit more.
Fletcher pulled all the onions out (they were beginning to rot in the ground) and dug up the few potatoes we got from the couple of plants he put in the raised bed:
Some of those potatoes are so gnarly! They sure are tasty though.
I finished reading Late Migrations and enjoyed it very much. Her essays are short but so well written. The sub-title is A Natural History of Love and Loss. So, it won't appeal to all, but I liked it quite a bit.
This is going to be a busy week at work - I have a group of 15 or so coming in for 3 days of training. I may need to pump a bit more coffee into my system!
Wishing you all a great week!
