From Friday

Oh my goodness, i only had one meeting today! Heaven!

I took it while sitting on the deck, birds fluttering overhead and humming birds coming over to check out the red dress i am wearing. I'ma little peeved at the chickadee: it tosses seeds out of the feeder until it gets whatever choice bit it wants and then flies off.

Tuesday through Wednesday felt like a long push, so i am thankful for an easy day.

The key will be not to let the lack of structure divert me from everything else.


Birds seen so far this morning: at least two distinct chickadees, pair of house finches, a California towhee, an Anna's hummingbird, an oak tit, and multiple goldfinches. The sun is creeping over the roof and my toes are warming up. It's actually been pleasantly brisk approaching just a little too cold.

After work i came in off the deck. Midafternoon i dropped the blinds, but i think the sun that filtered through reddened my cheeks a bit. I spent hours knitting (with the knook, not needles) and watching things. First the mildly entertaining series Alphas, then Christine's delight, Star Wars III.

I'm doing an openwork pattern: lots of yarn overs and knit-togethers. It's intriguing to watch the shape of the openwork pattern take form, especially given that i'm not really following instructions anywhere at all. Collapse )

My parents have a three hour layover at SFO ....

and, zippity skippity, i got to see them.

Now i am on the deck with a good bit of the day gone and pondering what to do.
