The sun is up and it is a little chilly, but I slept 9 hours last night! How wonderful. No special plans for today. Maybe some on-line ordering of gifts. Perhaps a bit of work. Hopefully some knitting and stitching time. I did get back to the glasses place yesterday and my specs were adjusted and seem much better now. I'll monitor it for a week or so, but hopefully this adjustment will do the trick!
Happily there was some progress made on the second Pomegranate Bird this past week. He/She is beginning to feather out a bit!
It should not be long now!! I will finish up Bird #2 and then the bottom of the urn and this baby will be complete. I've already been stitching dreaming of what to do next, but no decision made at this time.
You all know that we love a good outdoor fire at night. We have had so many that we destroyed our fire pit bowl. It ended up being a rim with a giant hole in the center. We looked on-line at replacement bowls, but the ones we liked were around $400+ and we just didn't want to spend that kind of money. Fletch came upon the idea of using a giant wok. So that is what we ordered - a restaurant-sized wok:
Good thing I'm not planning to use it for cooking - no way it would fit in my sink! Perfect size and we may get to try it out this week as the temps are rising a little bit. Thursday it is supposed to be in the mid-50's and Colin will be over for dinner, so maybe that night.
The birds are making a lot of noise at the front window in my office...can't wait for Mabel's perch to arrive today.
Have a wonderful Tuesday. And Happy Birthday to Mailing! The best daughter-in-law!!
