Good Morning Friends,
How are you on this St. Patrick's Day 2021? I am doing well. Last night was another one of those nights where it took me FOREVER to fall asleep. I was tired...too tired to read any more so I turned out the light, but 2 hours later I was STILL tossing and turning. Luckily I fell asleep shortly after that and, thanks to Tyg being outside all night and not being noisy on the patio roof, I slept until after 6:30.
After I finished typing my post yesterday and hit the publish button, I stepped outside on the patio and this is what I saw:
Gorgeous, huh? It lasted about 2 minutes and then was gone. And, of course, we all know the saying "red sky at night, sailor's delight...red sky at morning, sailor take warning." True enough it turned grey and cold. We actually had sleet in the afternoon!
My visit to the office was very quick - I was out of there before 10 a.m.! I saw one other person in my office - she walked by my desk and said good morning and headed to her office at the opposite end of the building. When I left, I saw one maintenance worker in the lobby downstairs. Fully masked and keeping distant. That was it! Kind of weird.
Meanwhile it is Unraveled Wednesday and I'm happy to say I have a finish!
Pretty, pretty. I am so pleased with the way this has turned out. Now, of course, I must cast on for sock #2 today. I don't want to tempt the 2nd sock syndrome gods. The yarn is KnitPicks Stroll and the colorway is Northern Lights. The pattern is Twinkleberry (which I don't believe is available any more) - a lace and cable pattern. I just used the pattern on the leg and knit a plain foot.
On the reading front, I finished one book and started another. I finished The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop by Fannie Flagg. It was ok, not great literature, but one of those "feel good" books. And sometimes that's exactly what you need to read. Yesterday I started Miss Benson's Beetle by Rachel Joyce. I read about this book on someone's blog...maybe Bonny's? I can't remember. But what a hoot this is. At times I am laughing out loud as I read it. I was on the hold list for months at the library and it finally came in the other day. I almost didn't bother with it, but am so glad I did. Fletch's and my after dinner reading is Decline and Fall by Evelyn Waugh and this is another laugh out loud book. At first we both thought it was going to be just too silly, but now we are both enjoying it each evening.
As usual, I'm linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. Head on over to her corner of blogland to see what she and others are making and reading. Inspiration abounds!
