How are you doing mid-week? Yesterday was such a great day for me. Another day with a little bit of everything. A little (very little) work, a little stitching, a little knitting, a walk, some archery, cooking. All good!
On the archery side of things I managed two sessions yesterday - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I will admit to not always hitting the target (more often than not I over shoot or go off to one side...and when I'm tired my shots are short. However, occasionally when I do hit the target I get a really good shot:
My walk was nice, but abbreviated. The wind was pretty brisk and was bothering my ears. I walked alongside the canal and again, no blue heron sightings. I did, however, see plenty of sunbathing going on.
Not too many people on the trail either which was nice...a couple of folks walking and a few on bikes. That was it.
The Beekeeper sock is progressing nicely. Last night while Fletch read after dinner, I started the heel flap.
I'm not sure why this colorway is called Beekeeper, but I am liking the patterning in the yarn and it's a pleasure to knit with it.
We watched the 2nd episode of Ken Burns' "Hemingway" and enjoyed that. I only caught the first hour.
No book finishes this week. I'm back to reading one of the mysteries in a series I'm enjoying. Certainly not great literature, but entertaining and I'm liking it. A few more books came in at the library which I have picked up, so perhaps I'll have more to report next week.
I told Fletch I would try to walk this morning before lunch for a change, but the sky is looking rather gray and I think there might be a chance of rain. I'll check weather. If not, there is always stitching, knitting and reading to keep me busy. Hopefully work will remain quiet!
Hooray for a bullseye! I was going to take a drive over to PA where John's brother lives (it's open enough for archery) but it's raining here this morning. That was a surprise to me, but I get my second shot today and a nice rainy day will make it easier to nap if I need to. Your sock is looking great!ReplyDelete
Woohoo for the bullseye! I have only ever done archery as a child at camp, and I was pretty terrible at it, so I am quite impressed by that shot.ReplyDelete
I hope you're able to get out for a walk this morning. I usually try to walk in the morning to get it out of the way for the day, and I'll walk in anything (I have a good raincoat for rainy days), but I certainly prefer to walk when the weather is good. Sometimes, though, the not-so-nice days mean fewer people to dodge.
Your socks are coming along so nicely! I'm so glad you've been able to "dabble" in a little bit of this, a little bit of that. I like those days best of all! XOReplyDelete
Despite its odd name, that yarn is knitting up beautifully for a sock.ReplyDelete
We hit 79 yesterday, and the day was perfect for a walk. I never made it, however; too much to do. I did get outdoors to rake up the yard, and all the windows were open for a full airing-out.
Your bullseye is impressive. I'd never be able to draw the bow!
I have that Hemingway series recording so I can watch later this week! I am excited to see it!ReplyDelete
You just fly on socks! Beautiful knitting!
Congrats on the bull's eye!ReplyDelete
The stripes in the Beekeeper sock are wonderful - I ❤️ striped socks! Kudos on the bullseye!ReplyDelete
Sock is looking great! And way to go on the bullseye!ReplyDelete
Its been mostly sunny here, but the wind is a bit chill. Very deceiving when you look outside.
Yay for the bullseye! I don't think I hardly ever hit the target when I had our setup in the backyard. It's a lot harder to do than it looks in movies and on TV. My poor arm was black and blue.ReplyDelete
I love the texture of the Static yarn. It feels so soft and cushy. I'm pretty sure some more will be jumping into my next Knit Picks cart.
Yesterday sounds like a lovely. Turtles sunbathing just crack me up. They sort of slither off and then pop back up. What a pretty yarn bowl. The sock looks great. I have a few mystery series that I follow. Now and then I need a little light reading. The latest Maisie Dobbs came in on my overdrive account so that will be fun.ReplyDelete
I think it's cool that you are an archer. I tried it when I was in scouts. We're watching a TV series that is good "Broadchurch". Set in England. Have a super week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
I like to see your archery bouts--congrats on the bull's eye!ReplyDelete
The socks are a gorgeous colorway!
Sounds like a great day, I love the turtles. I like the colors and pattern of your sock. I have read many cozy mysteries, they are light reading. I like taking my walks in the morning. Take care, enjoy your day!
Look at that bull's eye so talented. You are ready for the Hunger Games! I love the socks :)ReplyDelete
