Good Wednesday Morning!
How can it possibly be the middle of March? Time is hurrying by faster and faster and I can hardly keep up! Our winds are still strong and it is a chilly start to the day (32). but our temps should be gradually warming up a bit.
Mid-week and time to link up with Kat and her Merry Band of Unravelers to discuss making and reading. Two favorite things for sure.
If you read my blog post on Monday, you know that the Trekking socks are off the needles and have already been worn. In their place, I immediately started the Pi Socks using the Pi yarn (Wild Atlantic Pi) that I ordered from Fibernymph Dye Works. The skein came with a mini which I am using for the cuff, heels and toes of the sock. The first one is coming along:
A bit more than halfway down the leg, heading to the heel. I threw in the CD that we listened to during dinner last night so that you could see how well my knitting matched the cover - LOL. Mary often matches her nail color or knitting to the book she is reading, so I'm following suit with a CD case and yarn. (And, yes, we do still listen to CDs, along with the radio and Spotify - good to have options.)
On the reading front, I set aside Love Songs for a little bit because two new books finally came in for me (and I cannot renew them...plus I needed a break from Love Songs...becoming a bit of a slog). First up is Signal Fires and wow! What a book; what a punch it packs! I stayed up past my usual bedtime last night and finished it. I know there is still a long wait list for this one, so I plan to drive over and return it to the library this morning.
The other new book that came in for me is The Queen of Dirt Island which I hope to start today. I've heard both positive and negative reviews of this one, so we shall see. I also still need to finish up "The Shipping News" for our discussion next week and then get back to Love Songs and wrap that sucker up!
Tomorrow I will head to the office. We are having a luncheon - the first since before Thanksgiving, so that should be nice. I'm not sure who is catering this time, but the food is always good!
Dee sent me a link to an article about the rise in pick-pockets in Tredyffrin Township which is where my office is...and also Trader Joe's. In fact, one of the reported incidents occurred at the TJ Maxx store in the Gateway Shopping Center which is where TJ's is. I plan to go there tomorrow, so I will be on high alert!
Hoping this Wednesday finds you all well and enjoying life!
