How are you this fine morning? We are doing well. I did get out yesterday morning for a walk. This time I walked along the canal path. No sightings of blue herons or turtles. There were a few ducks on the water. Someone had decorated a tree along the path. I believe the lights on the tree are solar (the box on the right of the upper tree).
This is opposite Fitzwater Station on the other side of the canal. A place that rents canoes and kayaks...also a fine place for a bite to eat. Here is a picture of Fitzwater Station (taken from the Web). It is a 19th century building. Dee and I have sat on the deck for lunch after walking along the trail.
There were not many people out and about. It was chilly. One runner passed me (in both directions) and I saw one couple walking. That was it! It was peaceful and beautiful. And chilly (I keep saying that - but chilly enough that my eyes were tearing up and my nose was running). Amazing that the day before was so mild. It started snowing on my drive home. Nothing accumulated and the flakes were tiny, but it was fun to see. Walking in the morning was great and I am hoping to do the same today (work emails so far are quiet).
Here we are at the last Tuesday of 2021. Time for a TNT update. My "Wintertime" piece is coming along. I'm not sure it will be finished by the time 2022 arrives, but that is ok with me.
In the space between the two deer on the left and the single deer on the right a tree will appear. Underneath the zig-zag line will be motifs like the one in the upper right of the piece. It is an easy and comfortable piece on which to work. I have picked out my next piece and it would be fun to start that either New Year's Eve or New Year's Day, but that is not really important. The enjoyment I get from stitching is the goal.
Our temps are supposed to rise a bit this week, so we may get Mabel outside again. We could also have a bit of rain. I'm hoping that Thursday is mild and dry enough for grilling. Colin & Mailing will be coming over. Other than that, I have no plans which is nice. I hope this last week of 2021 is unfolding nicely for you.
