I had just finished separating the sleeves from the body, putting those stitches on waste yarn and picking back up with the brown yarn for the rest of the body of the pullover when it was time to head to my doctor’s appointment. I managed to get several more rounds done in the waiting room and by 5 pm I had ten rounds in the brown. It’s going more quickly than I imagined it would, but I’m more accustomed to knitting with fingering yarn on size 0 to size 4 needles for most of my projects. All in all this is a very satisfying project and I’m making a serious dent in my yarn stash!
It’s time to stop and think about dinner. I picked up both lunch and dinner at the coffee shop on my way home from town at noon. We had salads for lunch and it’s CJ’s home-made chicken pot pies for dinner tonight. I’ll get the oven preheated to warm the pies up and we’ll eat about 6 pm, as usual. We keep country hours out here in the boondocks and try to get to bed between 9:30 and 10:00 pm.
The liquid magnesium supplement is helping me sleep better and wake up without that foggy ‘I don’t want to get up’ feeling. It has a bit of a sour taste in water but it’s not that bad. It’s better in about 8 oz of water compared to 6 oz.
Hope your Tuesday has been a good one. We have the house open and are enjoying the fresh air and the sounds of wildlife. I get a kick out of the pair of barred owls calling to one another in the late afternoons. Then the neighbor’s donkey starts in braying and cracks me up. I love life in the country.
