Thank you for all your good thoughts yesterday – Holly and I arrived safely (seven whole minutes ahead of the time my GPS predicted) … just in time for Happy Hour 😊.
Mother has a List for this visit, but she’s pretty easy going (and we’ve already completed two of the items!). I anticipate I’ll still have plenty of time to knit.
The “with coffee” project I mentioned yesterday is last summer’s Mystery Shawl. I remembered being about halfway through when I set it aside. Yarn wise that might be true – but pattern wise, I’m into clue 4 (and clue 5 includes the bind-off). I’m already five rows into the 31 rows of clue 4 (and so far – knock on wood – no unraveling!)
My “with wine” project is Colorwash. I actually did a bit of unraveling on it last night (fixing a boo boo I must’ve made this past weekend), but I’m back on track now … and trust I can stay that way.
On the book front, I listened to The Book on the Corner on my drive down yesterday and finished it on this morning’s walk. It’s delightful. and all about books and readers with a British accent, a little romance and a happy ending. It’s a nice contrast to In the Garden of Beasts, which I’m reading on my kindle. The book is excellent (this is my first experience with Erik Larson and it certainly won’t be my last), but the subject matter is challenging.
Thank you, Kat, for hosting us – love seeing what everyone’s working on and reading!
In closing – two views from this morning’s walk – just to give you a flavor of the local scenery.
|yes, that’s an alligator on the “far” shore!|
