I don’t have much of anything to say today, so you get a random assortment of . . . stuff.
For the past month at work, I’ve been squeezed into one corner of my office, as there are contractors working on reinforcing the window frames at one end. Towards the end of last week things were looking like they were close to completion. When I got to the office this past Tuesday I saw this:
The contractors broke one of my windows.(Of course my beloved coworkers took full advantage of the situation to accuse me of attempting to throw myself out of the window/attempting to throw one of them out of the window.)
A building engineer came by to have a look and cheerfully told me that he’d get the “glass guys” in this week to have a look. Glass guys were here today, and in order to have room to replace the glass (it’s in a tricky corner) they need to partially dismantle my office.
This may occur tomorrow while I am on my way to Richmond for the weekend. Wouldn’t that be nice? Minimal disruption for me.
The more likely scenario is that it will occur next week and cause much disruption.
I will be very happy indeed when this whole project is over and done with and I can spread back out into my usual sloppy routine.
Here’s a happier picture:
Some MadelineTosh Tosh Sock purchased from The Loopy Ewe last week. Aren’t the colors pretty?
The colors are, left to right, Filigree, La Vie en Rose, Mulled Wine, and Creme de Menthe.
Another happy picture:
My progress on my current shawl.
And a pic for Teddy’s fans:
Teddy has been a bit disgruntled because I haven’t been knitting many socks recently, so his sock-toe modeling career is sorta going down the tubes. I’m hoping that featuring him here will cheer him up.
A happy thought — tomorrow I head down to Richmond and get to spend some quality time with my best knitting bud L-B, as well as hang out with wonderful knitters at The Yarn Lounge on Saturday afternoon. (I love The Yarn Lounge. There may be stash enhancement. Just sayin’.) It’s a quick trip — I’ll be back home late Saturday night (Amtrack willing), so Miss Lucy will only have to do without her Momma for one night.
“Momma may be getting quality time with Auntie L-B, but I get some quality time with my Daddy!”
