Good Morning All!
Yesterday didn't turn out at all as I had expected, but it turned out very nice! I had my appointment with a nutritionist (trying to Nourish myself) at 8:30 yesterday morning, so was late getting to work. When I pulled into the parking lot around 9:45 a.m. it was quite eerie. The parking lot was almost completely empty. Just a few cars. I came into the building and realized there was no power. Apparently the storms Tuesday night with the accompanying high winds knocked out power to a number of office complexes in the area...and it was not anticipated to be restored until 3 p.m. or later! Whee!!! A free day. There were a couple of people in the office and I walked around and spoke with them and then high-tailed it home.
So, here I am a bit late linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday (on a Thursday). Miss Lime is coming along:
That picture was taken Tuesday night. This morning, while sipping coffee, I was working on the toe decrease stitches. I should finish this up at lunch today.
The shawl saw progress yesterday as well. No picture yet. I finished the pattern and am up to the bind off, but as I had said previously, I plan to knit a bit more so that the very pale color in the yarn will be a part of the shawl. I'm so happy with this Odyssey shawl. It really is beautiful. I cannot wait to block it and have the lace sections really open up.
A week or so back I noticed that there is a pair of hawks nesting on our office building. They have built a nest on (I believe this is what it is) a light fixture right above my window!
I'm not sure if eggs have been laid yet or not. There has been a lot of flying in and out of the nest. The above picture was taken from my boss' window. My window is the one just below and to the right, but I can't see the nest from my window due to an overhang. I'm excited to see little hawks!! This is also right over the front entrance to our building and every morning there is a MESS on the ground - they tend to kick out large sticks and twigs during the night and then replenish them later - lol.
On the reading front: not much! I've been reading The Gown and had such high hopes for it - the Queen, embroidery, etc. And the waiting time on Overdrive was months and months. I have to say I'm under-whelmed at best. I'm about 40% of the way through and am thinking of giving up on it. For me it is just so meh. I know some have really enjoyed it, but I'm finding the writing tiresome and the whole story rather boring. But then I keep thinking maybe it will pick up? I am excited to read the next selection chosen by Bonnie, Kym & Carole: This Book and I will try to get a hard copy at the library over the weekend.
So that's a wrap for me. I have a bit of catching up to do after my free day yesterday (and, my office is still closing at Noon tomorrow in celebration of Daylight Savings Time!!).
