Good Morning Everyone!
How are you on this Tuesday morning? I am ok. Lunch yesterday was very nice. It was a farewell luncheon for one of our employees (the CEO's assistant who is leaving after 22 years!!). We ate at Davio's where we've had some other work functions. Appetizers had been ordered ahead of time (calamari, little spring rolls, shrimp cocktail and some raw tuna which I did not eat), there was champagne and I had short ribs for the main course. They tasted good, but I did not feel well the rest of the day! I did go home after lunch (we didn't leave the restaurant till 2:30 or so) and had major indigestion the balance of the day and all evening. Yuck!
But...I was able to finish up the second sock despite feeling crappy.
Several folks commented yesterday on how speedy I was knitting. Honestly, it's not that I'm a speedy knitter, it's that I did nothing else - lol. My bathrooms need to be cleaned, but knitting was more fun. I do like these socks a lot - they just make me smile!
Next up, I will cast on for Mailing's ear/headband. I may do that at lunch today. I'd like to concentrate on that, the newly discovered shawl, and get back to the Canary Blanket (I think my arms are rested enough to manage some of that). But, knowing myself, I bet I have another pair of socks cast on by the time the work week wraps up. Because, knitting socks is apparently what I do! Fletch has asked for some more (he would like some cotton ones again which may necessitate a yarn purchase...).
The other finish is another book! This is another poetry book, so short, but pretty good. The book is Clinch River by Susan Hankla who (I believe) is a friend of Fletcher's cousin Kathy (they both live in Richmond, VA). I found it to be good - a bit intense in places. She is definitely a "Southern writer."
It is another grey day here...no sign of the sun at all. And even though it is above freezing it feels pretty raw outside. I hope everyone's week is going well!
