Good Morning All!
I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe at home. My new laptop did arrive yesterday morning and I was able to connect to our internet at home, but was unable to get into Outlook to access work e-mail and I was unable to access any of my files that had been transferred to the laptop. Long story, but I ended up driving into the office yesterday afternoon and was able to connect there. First time logging onto a new device they had to verify it was moi and the way they do that is to call my phone - that is my office phone. Geeze. Anyway, I did not stick around (there were 3 other people in the office) and everything is working fine now at home.
How are you all doing? I find myself so distracted and scattered and (of course) not sleeping well which doesn't help things. Weird how I crave days stuck at home - when it is my own choice. Being told I have to stay at home is another story. Especially with no end in sight. I'm trying to stay busy with knitting and cooking and reading, but again I am tending to wander.
There was a finish yesterday though! Miss Lime #2 was completed.
Here is a close up of one of them stretched on a sock blocker so you can see the pretty pattern.
These were fun to knit, but I'm glad to have them finished!
This morning I knit some on the Plaid Blanket sock (#1) and am now up to the toe decrease. I'll finish that today and get the second one on the needles. I also knit several rows on the Canary Blanket yesterday afternoon before deciding to run into the office.
Fletch always has so many projects that he wants to do that he is managing to stay occupied. We've had one of those plastic owls on a pole in our garden for years. You know - the kind that is supposed to keep other birds and critters away from your produce. When the large tree came down in our woods several months ago, Fletch discovered one limb that was covered with woodpecker holes. He decided to use that as a mount for the owl. He was able to get that set up the other day.
Now we are ready! Sugar snap peas have been planted and we (the collective we which means Fletch) have tomato seedlings in yogurt cups on the kitchen windowsill. They need to be transplanted to bigger containers soon.
Chrome for me is suddenly all in Spanish! I had to switch to Internet Explorer to write this post! I had noticed it was switching to Spanish on my phone sometimes. Just one more weird thing.
Well, time for me to get to work. I have some financial reports to run and data to get out to my bosses. Hopefully that will be a good distraction for me.
I will try to catch up on your blog posts later today. Meanwhile, sending calm and peaceful wishes to you all. Stay safe!
