Monday Again, 08/10/20

 Good Morning!

How was your weekend?  Ours was filled with chores and some mundane things.  Fletch continues to work in the basement cleaning and disinfecting after the major water we had during the storm.  I'm happy that the washer and dryer are still working with no issues.  So laundry was done and some grocery shopping (have prices skyrocketed?  Or is it me?), cleaning bathrooms and the kitchen floor.  Colin & Mailing came over for dinner last night (steaks on the grill, steamed broccoli & cauliflower and a lentil/chickpea "pasta" from Trader Joe's which was much less than stellar...but a blueberry gateau for dessert with whipped cream).

Those two kids are lucky!  Friday night they were heading up to Coopersburg on Route 309 to see some friends in a band.  Someone in another lane of traffic hydroplaned and slammed into the rear passenger side of Mailing's car.  Colin said Mailing did an excellent job of controlling the car and luckily their damage is minimal and their car still driveable.  Scary though!

Some knitting was accomplished and the first Hawk sock now has a heel and I'm a little over halfway through the gusset decreases.  I "should" be able to finish the sock this week and cast on #2.

I am loving all the colors that pop up in this project - so pretty.

Fletch and I watched Perry Mason (HBO) on Friday and then last night watched the first episode of the new season of Endeavour.  Yay for Endeavour being back!

Today I am heading in to the office.  I have a group of roughly 20 coming in for a meeting this afternoon and tomorrow morning.  Yes, all will be masked and yes, social distancing is possible in our training room (which can easily hold 80 or so).  I won't actually be sitting in on the meeting (thank God) - I've got other things to do.  I also booked dinner reservations for them at Sullivan's (a steak house in King of Prussia) which I will not be attending.  I don't like the restaurant and, really don't want to be in a private dining room.  Hopefully all will go smoothly.  This will be the longest I have been in the office since the beginning of March!  I'm betting I'll be exhausted - lol.

Well, I'd best get going, It's 7:50 a.m. and I need to drive into work.  Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!


  1. Goodness! So glad C & M made it out of that situation so well.

    Love your sweet little yarn bowl. That bird detail is the best.

    Yes, prices for groceries are climbing every week. I have to stop myself from making comments out loud in almost every aisle. Seriously, it's getting THAT bad. ;-)

  2. Scary for Colin and Mailing. Glad everyone is okay.

  3. Relieved to hear that Colin and Mailing escaped injury.

  4. Glad no one was hurt!

    Sock is looking great!

  5. I am very glad to hear that Colin and Mailing were okay. Those "life changes in a moment" moments are scary and I'm glad theirs was not worse. And hooray for Endeavor! I didn't know there was a new season and this is the best news I've heard all week!

  6. Wow....that was scary. Glad to hear everyone is okay.
    Endeavor is back???? How did I miss that. I need to go look into that NOW.

  7. I"m so glad Colin and Mailing are okay. That had to be scary for them, especially Mailing as she was driving and her side was hit. I'll say a prayer of thanksgiving for them.
    That sock is wonderful. Love those hints of color throughout.
    I think our groceries have gone up, up, up too. I just said that to Dennis last grocery pick-up. It was a shocker.
    Have a SAFE day at work my friend.

  8. Glad that the car accident wasn't horrific, but it sounds awful. Thank heavens they are safe.
    I hope all goes well with the meetings today. It makes me a bit nervous for you but I'm sure all will be well.

  9. It sounds like a good weekend for you.. but how scary the kids were hit! We are just shuffling along.. trying to get Dayle back to normal. Don't work too hard! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  10. Oh my gosh. I am so glad your kids are ok. That sounds like a scary accident. I hope your day went off ok today. I know life has to go on but navigating it with masks and social distancing is wearing. The sock looks great. Take good care in that office.

  11. the sock is looking great-so different from your last pair! My son was rear-ended leaving last month-they were almost home and the car was wrecked and they were all whiplashed-we are always so close to disaster! Scary. I'm glad they are okay!!!!

  12. I tried chickpea pasta and didn't like it at all. Too chewy and weird. Love your sock!!
