Last night I could not keep my eyes open after dinner. I tried knitting and reading - nothing worked, so I finally went to bed around 9:30. Friends...I slept until after 7:30 this morning! It was wonderful, but I haven't fully woken up yet. Waiting for the coffee to kick in.
My morning in the office yesterday was productive, but I had gone in specifically so that Bruce and I could meet and he never showed up. Frustrating. So tomorrow when I go in, I need to find time (individually) with Bill, Kevin, Bruce, Lisa and Mike. But meanwhile, they are in a management committee meeting all day! Guess I'll be catching them on bathroom breaks - LOL.
I had meant to mention a month ago when Bobby (the CEO) sent out an email and then I forgot. But October at my office is Socktober! I don't think anyone will be handknitting socks to donate (certainly not me with the way my knitting is so slow these days). This is the email that came out yesterday:
You'll have to click to enlarge if you like. Basically we are collecting socks to donate to a shelter at the end of the month. When I arrived at the office yesterday, I saw two large boxes (decorated) in the lobby for collecting the donations. A great and thoughtful idea.
And look what I spotted on my drive to the office yesterday:
A chiroprator's office with a skeleton by their sign. How appropriate!
Well, it is TNT (Tiny Needle Tuesday) and all I have to show is a very tiny start on one of the Pomegranate Birds.
I started to stitch on the bird (lower left of the urn) on Sunday afternoon and then Fletch and I went over to see our neighbors. By the time we got back, it was time to start prepping for dinner and I never got back to stitching. Hopefully I'll do more this week.
Yesterday Dee posted about the forecast for the coming winter. Apparently the Farmers' Almanac says we are in for a doozy of a winter this year. Dee also posted pictures of her black walnut tree (bare of leaves) and her winterberry bush - so full. So, I thought I would show you our winterberry as well:
Certainly more berries than last year. Could the Almanac be right? If it is, I'm prepared with plenty of stitching and knitting options!
I can see that work emails are flying in like crazy, so I'd best pour a second cup of coffee and get cranking. Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!
