It is grey and damp here. Looking at our forecast, we are in for at least 3-4 days of rain! We are supposed to go to Colin's Saturday for a Solstice Party, but I'm betting they cancel due to the rain. He and Mailing are not yet comfortable with folks hanging around inside their house (which I understand). Time will tell.
It does not look like I'll be getting out for a walk, but I did yesterday. This time I walked at Oaks along the Perkiomen Creek down to where it flows into the Schuylkill River. Damage from that horrible wind storm (Dericho) we had a couple of weeks ago was evident. Plenty of debris around. Meanwhile there was a mud puddle along the path and there were scads of tadpoles in it!
I took a brief detour off the trail and walked down the (small) cliff to the water's edge. There is a little sandbar that I walked out on. The water was very calm and pretty clear. When I turned around to climb back up to the path, I saw these tree roots:
So interesting. I saw a few turtles by the water and heard so many different birds. I saw some redwing blackbirds and cat birds.
My floss for the sampler still hadn't arrived, so I emailed the shop. Turns out they are waiting for it to come in - they were out of stock. But...they had already charged my debit card. What? Even Amazon doesn't charge until they ship. I was not a happy person. Luckily I located another shop that has it in stock and ordered from them. Once it arrives, I will cancel my order from the first shop.
Yesterday I worked a bit more on the Hellibore Hitchhiker. I never did get around to choosing yarn from my stash for the next pair of socks. But...I did make another Granny Square and now have completed 25!
And from the other direction:
Woo-Hoo!! I love the way they look together. This group roughly measures 30" square, so I'm going to need to crochet a bunch more (like at least 75) to make a good size blanket. I guess getting started on the next 25 will be on my agenda today as well as choosing yarn for the next pair of socks.
First, however, work beckons. It's Thursday which means I need to run a bunch of financial reports and get them out to the field. Wishing you all a nice and easy wind down to the week.
