A little warmer today - upper 50's this a.m.. But I don't think it will get out of the 70's today and there is a slight chance of rain later in the afternoon. I'll be heading to the office in a bit - Mike and Kevin are both in for budget meetings...Lisa's meeting is later in the week and Bruce had his last week because he flew to Ireland yesterday! And, there is a BBQ at work today. Our office building has a rather large lobby area with patio space outside. I'm not sure who is catering this picnic, but it's sure to be good.
We had the nicest evening yesterday. Colin came over for dinner (corn & black bean salad and grilled portobello mushrooms which were fantastic!!) and stayed until after 10 p.m. It was the perfect evening for a fire (we even had light jackets on!!). Mabel kept us company. For awhile she was in the apple tree and the wrens who are attempting to raise young were scolding her. Sweet Mabel was talking right back to those wrens - LOL. Then she was on the ground by the garden in her sphinx position - guarding her domain. A fox ran by, but she paid no attention and fortunately did not give chase! I failed to take any pictures, I was just so intent on soaking up every moment with young son!
I have a very small update on the Adam & Eve sampler. A&E have still not made an appearance. There is only the very beginning of the apple tree - a bit of trunk, a small branch or two and some apples - at least one of which appears to just be hanging in the air!
Hopefully there will be more progress this week. I realized that an entire week went by with no stitching or knitting for me. Unbelievable and unacceptable - LOL. I was just so busy with work that I didn't have the time or energy to do very much in the evenings. I'm planning to remedy that this afternoon and evening and again tomorrow. C&M have plans for tonight and tomorrow night with friends. Colin will be back for dinner on Thursday (Mailing has work plans that night). Saturday we are all (us, C&M, Mailing's sister and parents) going in town for Dim Sum. I'm excited - I love Dim Sum and we have not had that in a couple of years! And then the kids fly back to TX on Sunday.
Time to pour another cup of coffee and try to wake up some.
