Yup, another Manic Monday (ear worm) or in my case, really a Blurry Monday. There was a lack of sleep last night. I woke up at 1:30 a.m. with an upset stomach (which is fine now) and then the phone rang at 2:30 a.m.! What??? I did not answer it, but you know that feeling when the phone rings in the middle of the night (yes, we do still have a land line). Plus I was too warm (the flannel sheets are coming off the bed today!) and Tyg who almost never gets on the bed (unless no one is in it), was snug up against me. So major lack of sleep.
Luckily, I have an eye doctor appointment at 1:30 and I've already told my boss I'm going to that appointment and then going home to nap! The weird thing is he told me their land line rang in the middle of the night too. Not sure what is going on!
The weekend was nice, but I didn't do much. I did not knit on my Miss Lime sock. I did not knit on the Odyssey shawl. I did not knit on the Canary Blanket. But I did start something new and when I met up with Dee on Saturday this is what I worked on:
Loving this yarn folks. It is Tosh Twist Light and the colorway is "Plaid Blanket." I'm using the same design I used for Fletch's Barn Owl socks (K6, P2) and these will be for Colin. I managed to get through the heel flap and am up to the heel turn now. No knitting at lunch due to leaving for my doctor appointment, but hopefully I can turn the heel and pick up the gusset stitches tonight and even knit a bit on the foot (if I can keep my eyes open!).
It did warm up a bit yesterday and I had high hopes of walking, but the wind was a bit much for me. Today it is supposed to be 70!
This little delight popped up in our flower bed over the weekend:
Such a delicate and pretty crocus. I wish there were more of them (our others are solid purple or yellow). And we still have plenty of cardinals and other birds coming in for mealtime:
Love seeing them. This morning checking on the hawks nest, one of them flew in with a mouse or some delicacy in their mouth! No sign of any youngsters yet.
OK, I'd best try to do a little work before I have to leave. Wishing you all a wonderful week!
