It's early still and dark. Looking at the weather and radar, looks like we will be having snow (again) starting by 11 a.m. But, our temps are on the rise and I'm betting by 3 or thereabouts it will just be rain. It's been a number of years since we've had snow on the ground for this long.
How was your weekend? Mine was filled with more domestic duties than anything else, but I'm glad to have (finally) gotten to them. The bathrooms are spotless. The kitchen floor has been scrubbed. Our bedroom has been thoroughly dusted and vacuumed, as has my office room. Some laundry was accomplished - there is more to do today, and grocuries were procured yesterday.
A (very) little knitting was done. For being in constant play, the Yule Wave socks have to be taking the longest time EVER!
So close! Only 5 or so rows left on the toe decrease section and then I can Kitchener up the toe and weave in the ends. I got this close last night and just could not finish! Instead I watched the season finale on PBS of All Creatures Great and Small.
A little stitching and some reading was done as well. In my deep cleaning on Saturday, I came across a little gem of a book in an upstairs bookcase. Time for Outrage: Indignez-vous! by Stéphane Hessel. My Dad had seen him on public TV and immediately bought the book. Hessel was a member of the French Resistance, a diplomat, writer, etc. So many wonderful quotes in this book which was written in 2010 when Hessel was 93. One quote from the book:
It is the duty of us all to ensure that our society remain one of which we are proud, not a society wary of immigrants and intent on their expulsion or a society in which the media are controlled by the wealthy.
An interesting and timely (still) book. It is under 50 pages, so a very quick read. Highly recommend. The best part was finding a note from my Dad at the front of the book saying how he found this book so apropros of our times.
The Tygus (as Colin calls him) is doing well and was a sweet companion most of the weekend. He pretty much leaves my stitching or knitting things alone, but he likes to be close.
Today's plans include a conference call at 10 (hopefully a quick one) and some other bits and pieces of work. Perhaps I will even arrange to finish the sock?
Have a great week!!
