How are you doing mid-week? It's looking a bit grey here this morning, but I'm betting that will burn off. It is supposed to be very hot today. The retirement dinner last night was really very, very nice (though the food was mediocre). It was a later affair than I had hoped and driving home wasn't all that fun - rain and dark and eyes that are not quite right! But, easier than the last time I drove at night (I think 3 years ago??). Anyway, I was home by 10:15 or so and in bed by 11, so not too bad.
I've got my work cut out for me today - a bunch of reports to run and send out and some tracking forms I need to set up. My eyes got tired quickly yesterday morning, so I plan to take it a bit more slowly today and take the time to stop and rest my eyes now and then. And, of course, I hope to find pockets of time when I can just relax and knit or stitch some. We'll see.
Once again, I am linking up with Kat and her merry band of knitters/unravelers for Unraveled Wednesday (do check out the fun ribbon she just found!!). I'm happy to say that Damon's first "Out of This World" sock is off the needles! The yarn colorway is "Neptune" and thus the name I have given the socks.
The foot looks HUGE in this picture, but really it is just a normal size foot. (The zinnias in the vase have been there for 2 weeks now...and it looks like it is time to replace them!) I have yet to cast on for sock #2, but hope to remedy that today.
On the reading front, I finished Unsettled Ground by Claire Fuller. Oh my! Her writing is just so good, but the characters in this book...and the story...just so bleak. Much of it did not really seem all that believable to me, but it did hold my interest and I give it 4 stars.
Fletch and I have been reading (slowly - only 6 or so pages a night) From Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne. We find ourselves laughing out loud almost every evening - so much tongue in cheek humor. It's a very short book, so I am glad we are taking it slowly.
Well, time to start my engine and step into the work day. Hope your week is going well!
