Good Morning and Good Bye to March!
It doesn't seem possible that today is the last day in March and we are a quarter of the way through 2021 already!
Our first vaccination shots went off without a hitch yesterday. After all my complaining about what a cluster Southeastern PA is/was in reference to scheduling shots, I have to give them an A+ for how things are being run. We arrived early - like 45 minutes early! Fletch was all set to wait in the car, but I said I was going up, so he tagged along. The two police at the entrance told us as long as were scheduled that day, we could go in. As soon as we walked in there was a guy with an I-pad who took our names and had us verify our birthdates. Then we got in line which looked like airport security. There were two lines and they moved right along. We got our shots, waited the 15 minutes and were on our way home before our scheduled times! It was great. So far no reactions for me. Every once in awhile my arm feels heavy - not sore - just heavy and that's it. Last night Fletch said his arm was a little sore. He is still asleep, but I'll find out later how he feels this morning. Our second dose is set for April 20th.
This Unraveled Wednesday finds me with a new start. I posted about the finish of my Northern Lights Socks on Monday. My new start is:
A side note: My new "Attempted Murder" mug arrived!! Love it.
The new start is my Beekeeper Socks. The yarn is from KnitPicks - their Static line and the colorway is Beekeeper. These will be for Colin since he wants to raise bees. The pattern is very vanilla-like. It is just a 2x2 rib for the cuff and then the leg is knit 6, purl 2 around. This is what I did when I knit Fletcher's Barn Owl socks and he says they are so comfortable and feel great. Hopefully Colin will feel the same.
On the reading front, I did finish "Clock Dance" by Anne Tyler. It was ok. The first half of the book was definitely better than the second half and, like so many of Tyler's books, I find the characters engaged in activities that just don't seem plausible to me. I also realize that her characters (to me) seem the same from book to book. I am now reading Gone to Dust which I believe is a mystery Bonny read and recommended. It is a quick read and I'm enjoying it...will most likely look for another in the series. Fletch and I are still plowing our way through "Decline and Fall" by Evelyn Waugh which at times is just plain silly.
As usual, I'm linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. If you head over there you will find inspiration from others in the making and reading departments. Have a wonderful day!
