Hello and Good Morning!
Well, yesterday ended up being a longer day in the office than I've had in months! LOL Again a busy, busy, busy day. But, a lot was accomplished and that's a good thing. I may need to go in one more day this week, but if so, it will be just to print some stuff and then pull an overnight package together for Kevin. We'll see.
I guess I spoke too soon about no damage at home from Sunday's storm. Nothing major, but the end of an era!! 25+ years ago Fletch built a tree house in our woods for Colin. It really was pretty and those two actually spent a night or two sleeping in the tree house. Colin and his friends would play in it...until one time when they came inside covered (and I do mean covered) in ticks. It wasn't used after that. Over the years it had started to sag and tilt, but Sunday the entire tree came down!
It's sad to see the empty spot in our woods now, but Fletch says too that it is nice not to view the tree house slowly succumbing to nature!
As I mentioned yesterday, my eyes were bothering me quite a bit last week, so not that much stitching was done, but I did manage to do a few things.
Another border section on the right and the start of an owl in a tree. It's awfully wrinkled - sorry about that, but because I stitch in hand, the fabric gets bunched up while I stitch.
Oh, I have big news for my friend Leslie in NC. Leslie and I have been the best of friends since we were 12...so 55 years!!! Anyway, Leslie writes poetry and just had a poem accepted for publication/participation in a program called "Poetry in Plain Sight."
Poetry in Plain Sight: A Statewide Poetry Initiative. Launched in Winston-Salem in 2013, Poetry in Plain Sight brings North Carolina poetry and poets to the public. Four poems are chosen monthly and displayed on posters in street-visible locations throughout arts districts and downtown areas in Winston-Salem and in our expansion cities. The goals are to bring poetry to a wider audience and to support North Carolina poets.
The displays will start next April (2021). Unfortunately I cannot share her poem with you as that would automatically disqualify it. Once it is displayed I'll be able to share it though. Doesn't that sound like a neat program?
Time to pour another cup of coffee and get to work...I can see that emails have been flying in as I typed this post. Have a wonderful day!
