Hard to believe this is the last Monday in September 2020. Harder to believe that Colin & Mailing's wedding is less than 2 weeks away now!
So how was your weekend? Mine was good. Nothing special. Fletch and I had planned to be outside Saturday - do some walking, go out to lunch, that kind of thing. But rain happened. So I stayed in and worked on some stitching. Sunday was one of those back and forth days. The sun would come out for a bit but then the dark clouds would roll in. It never did make up its mind what it wanted to do or be. We had more rain last night. The rain was welcome. It's been so dry lately that the yard is beginning to turn brownish.
I discovered a new (to me) poet over the weekend. Badger Clark. Don't you love the name? I was thumbing through "Smithsonian" magazine and read this article and then I found a volume of his poetry to download for free on my Kindle. I haven't looked at it yet, but I thought it could be fun.
Between rain drops and rain showers, I was able to get some archery in both Saturday and Sunday. It feels good to be back at it. I'm not great and I miss the target more than I hit it, but I'm practicing and having fun. Usually the target looks like this:
But every once in awhile, I do hit a bullseye!!
One time walking across the yard to gather up the arrows I saw these:
Beautiful wings just laying on the grass. They are now on my kitchen windowsill along with other treasured things.
I'm heading to the office a little later. I have a bunch of stuff to print in color and some on the BIG paper (17x11) that my printer can't handle. I also need Tom from IT to look at my laptop. We have a sign-in verification system when we change passwords, but lately I've been getting the requests every single time I turn on my laptop. And now, a text for verification came in at 2 a.m. this morning - something weird is going on. Anyway, I know Tom is in the office Monday mornings, so I shot him a quick email this morning letting him know I would be in. Hopefully he will have the time to look things over.
Wishing you all a great week!
