Everyone feel a little better now? I know I sure do. Yesterday ended up being peaceful (thank God). I thought Biden's speech was excellent and Amanda Gorman - WOW!!! Even though I'm feeling better and more hopeful, last night was another wake up at 2 a.m. I did get back to sleep eventually but then the alarm went off at 6 a.m. I have to head back to the office which is not what I had planned for today. But, there are more contracts and documents to print that need to be signed in ink (as opposed to me putting someone's electronic signature on them) and additionally they have to be notarized. So, Bill and I are heading in and Jen will meet us since she is a notary. Thursday is my big "get out a bunch of financial reports" day, so I will likely be there for a little while. Oh well....
I did manage to get a little bit of knitting accomplished yesterday:
The beginning of Yule Wave #2. The cuff ribbing is complete and I've started the grey part of the leg. I think another 12 rows or so and then will do the colorwork (with a slightly larger needle). The 1x1 twisted rib is nice, though it takes me longer to do than a normal 2x2 plain rib. But I like it for a change.
Another chilly morning (18 degrees), so I'd best dress warmly. I'm curious to look up when I walk toward the front of my office building. The hawks may be back! Remember we had nesting hawks on a light fixture at my office building a year ago. They made an awful mess of the walk way and windows, but it sure was fun to see those baby hawks. Tuesday when I was at the office I noticed some sticks on top of the light fixture again. I'm curious to see if there are more today. If it is the hawks, I'll be curious to see if property management allows the nest building to continue or if they will try to discourage it (or take it away). No one is going into the office (my entire building - 3 floors) is empty, but I also know it took them a long, long time to clean up the mess last year.
Time for another cup of joe and then get dressed to go out in the cold. Have a wonderful Thursday!
