It's Thursday and I can feel the weekend looming ahead - thank goodness! Yesterday was another very chilly day, and rather windy. Fletch and I managed to get to Miller's Greenhouse for some snapdragons and a couple of peppers and some marigolds. All are on the kitchen table as Fletch was worried it would get too chilly last night.
Miller's is a small family business run by a husband and wife on the property where their house is. It's kind of messy and a little junky, but they do have great plants. They also have this wonderful carving right by their house:
When I asked Nancy if I could take a picture of it, she said sure...just please try to NOT get the house in the picture - it needs desperately to be painted. And it does! But I could not avoid the house in the picture, so you get to see that too.
The balance of the day was pretty calm. I did manage to cast on for the Crazy Zauerball Sock #2. I only managed 10 rows of ribbing, but it's a start.
It's gonna be completely different than Sock #1, which is fine with me.
After dinner I decided to run all my Thursday reports 12 hours early and get them out. It took until 9 p.m., but they were all distributed. I did not want to have to do them this morning as this is the day I'm heading to the office. I'm meeting Jake/Tom around 8:30 and he will get a new docking station set up for me at the office as well as connecting my new laptop to the two printers I use at the office. There are also one or two quirks he needs to look into - for example, even on the docking station, my laptop must be kept open or my monitor goes dark. Weird and annoying.
While in the area, I need/want to stop at Trader Joe's and the State Store. Then it's off to lunch at Maggiano's in King of Prussia (my least favorite restaurant in the area...I've never eaten there without getting sick!) with a few of the women from the office. It will be good to get home this afternoon and...maybe...work some more on Sock #2.
Time now to pour another cup of joe and dry my hair. Have a wonderful Thursday!
