Hello My Friends,
Welcome to September - a fine and wonderful month. Both Fletch and I have birthdays this month. My computer is saying it is 53 outside and it does, indeed feel a bit chilly, but wonderful. I know, I know. The 90's are coming - Labor Day and surrounding days are most likely going to be pretty uncomfortable. C&M are getting away for the weekend - a good thing since their AC has been out this past week and it is now scheduled to be fixed next Tuesday! Their temps have been over 100 daily. The maintenance folks brought them room units, but their apartment is still pretty warm. I hope Talbot and Marcel will be ok while they are gone.
The story with the washer is that the part was ready to be shipped but was in Florida and delayed due to the hurricane. At this point I'm just saying "Whatever." Nothing I can really do except become a regular at the laundromat. Yesterday there were some weirdos there...I just wanted to wash all the rugs from the bathrooms - nothing much. So I did that and got out of there. I did take my knitting with me and then last night knit some more and voila:
The Allsorts socks are finished!! I like them, but they may go into the gift box. I knit them the same way I knit all my socks - same leg length and foot length, but these are a little smaller and a little tight on my feet. I used a #1 needle instead of a #2. No biggie - it's not like I don't have more than enough socks to wear. LOL
We were also successful in booking all of the various AirBnB's for our upcoming trip. Hard to believe we leave two weeks from yesterday! Fletch has already started gathering things together to take with us (so much! too much! just my opinion).
I'm in Friday mode! My conference calls have been cancelled (not a surprise with it being a holiday weekend). Most likely I will nap since I was awake more than I slept last night. I do want to do some baking though - I have rhubarb and peaches in the frig that need to be used ASAP. I'm thinking a rhubarb/peach crostata and I may bake a batch of blueberry muffins as well.
Besides napping and baking, I'm hoping for knitting and stitching time. I already did a bunch of work this a.m. (dark early), so I'm thinking I'm done with work for today (fingers crossed).
Wishing everyone a fun Labor Day Weekend - enjoy these last Summer days!
