How are you this Tuesday morning? I am doing well and waiting for it to get a little lighter outside. It is warmer this morning - in the 50's, and the whole week is supposed to be pretty nice. Last night I slept for 9 hours!!! I was so tired (again) last night that I went upstairs to bed before 9:30. I read, but couldn't manage more than 4 pages before I had to turn out the light. Figured I would wake up at 2 or 3 a.m. and be awake the rest of the night, but I never woke up until 6:40 this morning! Woo-Hoo and Hooray for a good night's sleep.
Before I forget, I want to mention that I discovered a number of comments on my blog that were emailed to me (as they are supposed to be), but ended up in my spam folder...I clean that out every week or two, so my apologies for not acknowledging all comments. Not sure what's up with that.
Yesterday was a longer day in the office than I had anticipated...and longer than I have been in there in months! However, I don't need to go back in until a day next week, so that is good news (I had thought I would need to be in today as well).
Forgetting work for a bit (!!), it is TNT, or Tiny Needle Tuesday. Not much progress has been made since last week, but here is what I managed to accomplish:
This motif is not yet complete. There will be a bunch more stitching inside this one. The yellow is at times hard to see on the linen I'm using. I have to make sure my light is strong and I use magnification too. Even more difficult to see on the whole piece:
It is on the far right and is the same color as the yellow on the far left. The next motif to the right of the yellow one is the corner at the upper right. It will be nice to have the entire top stitched.
We did (FINALLY) receive our mail in ballots last week. We will complete them and drop them (not mail them) at a location near us. (I don't trust the mail to get them in on time.) We've been bringing in Colin & Mailing's mail while they are away, and their ballots still have not arrived!! It's frustrating.
As I mentioned above, the week is supposed to be gorgeous. I'm hoping to get out for a walk today. I do have a conference call, but not until 3:30, so I should be ok for walking around lunch time. This morning I'll run over to the kids' house to feed the cats and will probably leave the door to their sunroom open for those critters since it's supposed to be so nice. It was good to hear from them that they made it to Key West safely.
Time to get to work - emails are flying in. Have a wonderful Tuesday!
