How are you? How was your weekend?
My weekend was good. I did end up working yesterday and even a bit last night. But...as I've said, I'm thankful to be employed. I did receive an e-mail on Friday indicating that they are looking - tentatively - at reopening our office June 1st. But, a staggered opening in that some folks will come in Mondays and Wednesdays, others will come in Tuesdays and Thursdays, and everyone will work 3 days a week at home. My time will be flexible - depending on what Bill, Kevin & Bruce need. No guarantee that's when the office will re-open, but at least plans are starting to be made. We do have FY 2021 budget reviews planned for the last week of May, so if they are in-person I will be in the office at that time. No decision yet on whether those reviews will be in person or remote.
It's taken awhile, but I think this damp, raw weather we've been having...and continue to have...is finally getting to me. Plus, I realized last night that this is the week Fletch and I were supposed to be on our Spring camping trip which obviously is not happening. So part of the weekend was spent just being mopey. (Given our current weather...and the forecast...I'm glad we are not on a camping trip, but still....)
So here are a few things from my weekend. First, I made a couple more masks. They were done half-heartedly and kind of sloppily, but honestly I'm not really concerned about how my masks look. I'm not looking to win a contest. But, I do love the fabrics.
I do have a thing for birds, that's for sure! LOL
I also made a couple more Granny Squares (I think I've completed 6.5 now)
Fletch actually (finally) started going through a box of "stuff" that his brother had brought up quite some time ago - like a couple of years. OMG, his mother saved EVERYTHING!!! But, look at these: cards they received when Fletch was born.
I love these images from the 40's. And then this:
Nanno (Fletch's Grandmother) wrote him a letter when he was born! I recognized her handwriting as soon as I saw the envelope. Gosh I miss her. She made the best fried chicken ever!! Anyway, the letter was the sweetest and brought tears to my eyes.
I just hope that Fletch doesn't want to save ALL of these things.....
Here's hoping your week is off to a good start.
