Good Morning All!
It is a drizzly one here. Tyg came in this morning a bit wet and I can see the cars are wet as well. Oh well, I'm heading in to my office in a bit, so it doesn't really matter to me. But gosh I wish this stinking humidity would leave! Yes, the temps have moderated a bit and at times it feels a bit chilly, but as soon as you start to move and do anything you break out in a sweat!
Yesterday I again decided at the last minute to go for a walk. This time back to Oaks along the Perkiomen Creek to where it spills into the Schuylkill River. There is a dam on the creek and I saw a Blue Heron standing on it!
I love that I captured his reflection too. Not bad for a cell phone picture standing pretty far away!
My walk was pretty sweaty. There were not too many people on the trail...only a few walkers and a few on bikes. When I got back to my car and headed home it started sprinkling. We never got heavy rain, but enough to drive Fletch inside (he was doing some yard work).
On to the knitting portion of the blog! I have not yet picked out yarn for my next pair of socks. I think it needs to be something Fall-ish, but I have not had a chance to look. So last night as Fletch read out loud after dinner, I picked up my neglected Hellebore Hitchhiker. It was so nice to work with this yarn again!
I love the pop of lime green in this. So far there are around 28 teeth, so still a ways to go (still plenty of yarn left as well). This is such a meditative and relaxing knit, but sometimes I find myself closing my eyes...not a good thing for me while knitting - lol.
Fletch and I are currently reading "South Moon Under" by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings (the author of "The Yearling") and really enjoying it. Published in the 30's I believe.
As usual, I'm linking up with Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday. Be sure to head over to Kat's blog to see what she and others are making and reading.
Time to pour another cup of coffee (this morning I brewed cardomom black pepper coffee!! - so good), shut this laptop down and pack it up to go to my office. Have a wonderful day!
