This week had some hellishly long days and meetings, and as a result, by using 2 hours of vacation time, I get the whole day off today!
Off is a relative term. I have LOADS of chore like things to do.
I finished priming the shelves this morning. I should be able to start the pretty color painting tonight.
Laundry is in process.
Have to stop at the PO to mail of a swap package today, as well as some yarn bits to a friend.
Then it’s a haircut, the grocery store, the pop up veggie stand for some strawberries.
Home again to clean bathrooms and bake a cake.
If I am up to it and feeling brave enough I need to get into the pool and scrub it. While it is looking much better, it isn’t swimmable yet. This is the only time I hate getting into the pool – when all the sides and bottom need scrubbing and then the water will be murky and nasty. But it’s the only way to get that stuff into the filter and out of the water.
Tomorrow J comes to do his back breaking magic on the yard. So much work to be done out there, just to keep up with what we did last year.
But this did happen yesterday!
Not a great photo, taken from the porch, but it is in the bed I made last year while J cleared in front. I planted two oriental poppies last fall. They both survived but only this one will bloom this year. That is OK, I can be patient. I did plant some sweet pea and morning glories in the bed to climb up and shade the porch a bit. They popped up, so I meed to add a trellis…
Tomorrow will be taken up with yard work and keeping him busy until it is time to clean up and take him out for supper to thank him.
Sunday Crimson Crow and I are off on another adventure… I will share more about that later.
In case you are just here for the knitting, a hellish lot of meetings means that socks get worked on.
These look nearly finished but one isn’t. I need to redo the cuff, but that won’t take long. Trouble is I right away started another pair, so the needle isn’t free. Duh.
The sweater continues and doesn’t seem to change, but I do think it is almost long enough. A few more weeks?
No spinning yet this week. Perhaps Sunday…
