Hello and Good Morning!
How are you today? I slept better last night (thank God), though I was awake some hearing rain. By our rain gauge it looks like we received about an inch over night. There was nice, cool air coming in the back window in our bedroom as well.
Last Wednesday in September and, as usual, I am linking up with Kat - be sure to hop over to her blog not only to see what others are making and reading, but this week she has some adorable acorns knit! Though adorable, I think they may be a bit too fiddly for moi.
There has been a little knitting (emphasis on little) since last Wednesday. My first Lava sock is progressing and I should be at the toe decreases later today.
This pattern (free from Valerie) is a fun and easy one to knit. Normally I would already be on the second sock...or even finished that one...but work has been extremely busy. September & October are my busiest months at work and the pandemic certainly hasn't slowed things down! I'm also taking a few days off around the wedding, so that has compressed my time even more. No complaints! I'm happy to be employed and I'd much rather be busy than not.
You all know I've been in a reading slump over the last year or so, but I'm happy to say I read, finished and really liked a book! I read the latest Louise Penny Inspector Gamache book All the Devils are Here and liked it better than the previous one ("A Better Man"). The latest takes place in Paris rather than Canada, but they do end up in Three Pines at the end (insert happy face...wouldn't you love to visit Three Pines?). Last night I picked up Olive, Again and continued reading in that a bit. The writing is good but the stories tend to be a bit bleak. Luckily this is a book you can pick up and put down.
Yesterday when Fletch was walking around looking at the garden (just about spent) and other things he noticed that one of the Asian Pears had fallen from the tree. We had been holding out picking any (there are only 2 this first year), hoping to share them with Colin & Mailing, but apparently this one did not want to wait. Last night I cut it up and we shared it.
