Hello All and TGIF!
It was not my intention to post on Monday and skip the rest of the week, but somehow the week got away from me. Work seems to be getting busier and busier (which I guess is a good thing). I did go into the office on Tuesday to take care of some stuff. There were only 3 of us in the office the entire time I was there, and I got my stuff done and was home before lunch.
No sign of the hawks - either adults or babies, but the whole side of the building is splattered with their mess and the entrance to the building is still filthy. I hope that gets cleaned up soon.
I still need to be in the office the last week of May for budget reviews, but a number of people are opting to not come to corporate for reviews in person, but rather do the reviews over Webex. I still need to coordinate ordering lunches, etc.
Other things during the week. Our iris are beginning to open! We can always count on them opening the first week in May. They seem a little late this year (surprising with the mild winter we had).
On Monday I did harvest rhubarb and made a pie! Not the most beautiful, but Fletch pronounced it as my best ever!!
I cut up more rhubarb for another pie and froze it. A ton of rhubarb went to my boss Bill - he and his wife love it. And, I still have more than enough to make some jam. I bought blueberries yesterday, so will make some bluebarb jam.
Colin was over last night to get some bamboo plants for his property (we have it growing at the back of our woods) and he hung around for a fire. It was nice to see him, but still so weird to sit far apart and no hugging, etc. Earlier in the week he texted me this photo:
Nice to see the Canary Blanket is loved!! The coral & green blanket behind Marcel is the one I crocheted while in college - so 45 years ago!! This picture was taken in Colin's home office - he said Marcel likes to hang out with him while he is working! Colin has also found out that he can work remotely (i.e., from home) permanently!! He was always able to work some days from home, but felt obligated to go into the office some. Now that obligation is gone!!
I also got out and walked after lunch twice this week, but did not see any wildlife (other than a lone turtle). I was walking on the trail in Oaks and I think I spotted a second heron's nest, but still no sign of the birds.
Today should be easier work-wise. My conference call has been cancelled and reports I do are pretty much caught up. I have some chores I want to do (laundry, kitchen floor, etc.), but other than that no real plans. I did have to rip out the Hitchhiker last night - somehow my stitch count got way off...not sure how...but easier at this point to just rip it out and re-start. I hadn't done much on it at all this week. I did start socks for my brother, but only got through the cuff of the first sock. Hopefully this weekend will see much more knitting!
TGIF!! Have a great weekend!
