It's Wednesday. Mid-week and mid-month (how is it possible that we are already halfway through July?). I haven't done much knitting this week, but here's an overall shot of the Hellebore Hitchhiker which I haven't shown in a little while.
This picture does not really do the yarn justice. It is simply beautiful and fun. I'm now up to 24 teeth and the rows are steadily growing in length.
On the reading side of things I am about a third of the way through Song Yet Sung and am thoroughly enjoying it. Parts of it are difficult to read, but the language and writing are excellent.
Colin and Mailing were over for dinner last night. Fletch grilled a flat iron steak which was delicious (marinated it for several hours in a combination of soy sauce, sherry, honey, ginger and garlic) and we had a green bean, tomato and onion salad (dressed in EVOO, lemon juice, garlic & basil) and corn on the cob which I had picked up at Trader Joe's. The corn was tasty...but 79 cents an ear seems high to me (though when Fletch got it the other week he paid $2 an ear!!).
Colin & Mailing left after dinner and went over to Colin's office. He no longer goes into work, but he has a garden plot there and had not checked on it in about 4 weeks. He is growing eggplant, cauliflower and I forget what else - he has a bunch of stuff planted. Then the kids came back and we had a fire in the pit. I was thinking it would be too warm to enjoy it, but actually it was very nice sitting out back around the fire.
Work was annoying yesterday. I don't think anyone checks their work these days! I received an amendment to a contract that had been approved by our legal department and was ready for signature. It was an 18th amendment and the word Eighteenth was mis-spelled at the top of the page! And, the footer of the document read 16th amendment. I guess people just don't care these days.
Linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. Head on over to her place to see what others are making and reading. May the last half of this week be a good one for everyone!
