How are you? Yesterday was so gray - until 5:00 in the afternoon that is. Then the sun came out. Today looks like it might be a bit brighter. I've got a bit of work I need to do, but perhaps I'll be able to fit in a walk. Here's hoping.
Last night I ended up going grocery shopping. I just needed to get out of the house and I was betting the stores would not be crowded. They were not! I was able to get everything at the first store I went to except for flour, sugar, mushrooms (which they had, but not the ones I wanted), angel hair pasta. So I went to the second store which was just about fully stocked with flour and sugar; had the mushrooms I wanted, etc. Neither store had TP or tissues. Luckily we are ok with those items for the moment. It was good to get out!
Meanwhile, Fletch finished up the 2nd folding bench yesterday.
I love the legs on these benches (and the fact that they fold up flat against the underside of the bench for storage). The spot on the one on the right is where oil did not soak in. Fletch will re-sand that section and re-oil which should do the trick. Love the two tones of the wood. Next up are benches and a table for Colin & Mailing. Despite the fact that the legs on our table are rotting from the bottom and it needs to be propped up...Fletch says it will last forever and no need to replace right now. Gggrrrrrrrrr. We do see things differently, that man and I. The window box sitting on the table, by the way, has radish seeds in it which are coming up so nicely.
See how green our grass is? So much rain will do that.
The table and benches are sitting underneath our apple tree which, apparently is doing much better than it did last year (last year no blooms, no apples). This first shot of some buds was taken a week or so back.
(That may have been the last time we had a blue sky too). Buds all over! And leaves!!
This morning I stepped out on our patio and took a picture of the same area of the tree:
Hard to see in the little pic, but if you click to enlarge, you will see the buds are opening (dark pink as buds, pale pink to white when open). And even more leaves!! Maybe we'll get apples this year.
Yesterday was fairly busy work-wise, but I managed to finish up the one Granny Square I had started and make another one too! I'm now up to 8 completed. When I was awake in the middle of the night I was thinking of/deciding which colors to use on the next square...really, I would have rather slept better, but whatever....
Well, I'd best get to work so that if the day remains rain-free (and warms up - it is currently still in the 30's), I'll be able to get out for a walk. Have a great day!
