It is still early and dark outside, but I'm up. It is 6 a.m. and I have a dentist appointment at 7:30. Enough time to sip some hot coffee and post on TNT (Tiny Needle Tuesday).
Yesterday was one of those simply beautiful Fall days. Fletch worked in the garden doing some clean up. I worked (work-work) and did some laundry. It was a perfect day for hanging things on the line to dry.
A tablecloth billowing in the breeze, some leggings and a bunch of socks - many of them hand knit. Everything smelled so fresh and good when I took things off the line late in the day. There is still more laundry to do (of course), but I don't think it's going to be quite as nice for drying outside.
My plan was to finish the first Pomegranate Bird on my sampler, but that didn't happen. Still, more progress than the other week (at least you can tell it's a bird).
The colors are just scrumptious, aren't they? So pretty. There will (of course) be another bird on the right hand side. Then the urn gets filled in (some words and some background color). So...still quite a bit of stitching left on this one. No rush.
So, the dentist at 7:30 and then my annual review (via phone) at 10:30. I've already seen a copy of the written review (all good), but today I will find out what my increase will be. I don't expect any surprises (in a good or bad way)...our raises are always pretty much at 3% (which sucks, but...). After that I hope to get some chores done (the laundry, bathrooms, maybe the kitchen floor?) and find some time to knit and relax.
My hope is that this Tuesday will find you doing something fun and enjoyable!
