Good Tuesday Morning!
Still no results yet on Mailing's test. Colin told me yesterday it could take 2-5 business days (I thought it was 2-4 days...not business days). She is feeling much better - was back to 95% yesterday, so that is good news.
It is pretty hot and humid here in Eastern PA. I did not go out to walk yesterday. Work was humming and I was busy (and irritated) all day long. I've got more to do today, but am hoping to get out at some point. Other work news: the opening of my office is now scheduled for August 6th (had been July 13th). It keeps getting pushed out, which is fine with me.
Meanwhile, it is the last day of June (how did that happen?) and is TNT, or Tiny Needle Tuesday. Here is what I started after finishing Hallow Eden.
This is another small piece by Blackbird Designs called The Crows at Strawberry Hill. Fletcher thinks the berry looks more like an acorn and is wondering why the crow has a collar on. LOL The liberties of cross stitch designers. There is a mirror image (well, one hopes it will be a mirror image) of the crow on the other side and a couple of flowers center bottom. A small border at the bottom and it will be finished. Small, pincushion size. I'm using 35 count linen and one strand of floss over two threads (thus, 17.5 stitches to the inch). The threads I'm using are once again Crescent Colors. I should finish this up in a couple of days and then I will start the next larger piece I picked out (another Adam & Eve sampler).
We are going to need to get to the grocery store soon. We are almost out of cat food, we have no lettuce (garden lettuce has all bolted), almost no spinach, low on milk, yogurt, eggs.
I think I mentioned in another post the cat birds that have been pestering/scolding Tyg all the time. Cat birds have a beautiful song - IF they sing. Otherwise, they spend time screeching and it gets tiresome to hear. Fletch and I often sit on the patio in the late afternoon and when we do, Tyg will join us. The cat birds perch in the apple tree and start an awful racket. We were tossing tennis balls at them which worked, but Fletch stopped at the Dollar Store and picked up a pack of water pistols. Since he bought them, the cat birds have stopped their noisy fussing!! Figures, huh? But, the pistols are by our chairs ready to be put to use.
In other nature news, our trumpet vine is beginning to open - lots and lots of buds and blooms, so we should be seeing more hummingbirds. And, our first frog of the season showed up yesterday!
OK, time to pour another cup of coffee and get to work. Hope your Tuesday is a fine one!
