Good Morning All,
Looks like it is going to be another beautiful day here. Blue sky and sunny at 6:40 a.m. I woke at 2 a.m. hearing a fox bark in our woods. I was happy when Tyg woke me at 4:30 because that meant he was in when the fox was roaming around. That is not always the case!
Even though places are beginning to open up in PA, it is a slow process. I was setting up some dinner reservations for Kevin's group next week when they are in town for budget meetings. The group is 8 on Monday and Wednesday nights, but 13 on Tuesday night. Sullivan's Steak House will only take a gorup of 7 or less. And a number of restaurants had no openings next week! I did finally find 3 different restaurants and am glad to have that out of the way. I will not be joining them for dinners. Today one of the things I need to do is figure out lunches for about 30 people each day next week. Luckily there are places nearby that deliver.
Also received an email yesterday indicating that my office will no longer require masks as of today for those who are fully vaccinated. Vaccination is not a requirement for coming to the office and the hope is that those who have not been vaccinated will still mask up. Seems a little early to me, but we will see....
Since it's Wednesday, I'm linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. A bit of knitting was accomplished on the "Enthusiasm Speckle" sock.
The heel has been turned and I am back down to 16 stitches on each needle. Of course I did not manage to get a picture that shows the pattern...not that it shows up that well in this yarn - I think it will once it is stretched out on a leg. The pattern is free on Ravelry: "I Smell Snow" by Sanni Koivumaki. The pattern is only on one needle, but manages to keep the knitting fun and interesting.
On the reading side of things, I am still making my way through Daughters of the Dust but it is beginning to drag a bit for me. I'm only halfway through but find myself nodding after reading only 2-3 pages. Yesterday I picked up at the library the 4th Matt Goldman book Dead West which should be a quick read and also Oil and Marble which looks very good. With those two on my night stand, I may give up on Daughters of the Dust.
Well, it is now 7 a.m. and the work emails are flying in, so I'd best get to work! Have a good one everyone.
