Monday catch up

Yesterday was a crazy day---there's something going on that if it works out it will be very good that we had to jump on yesterday. I'll let you know in a few days what that is, but in the meantime please just cross your fingers for us about this thing.

I was out at the farm doing another halter session with Calypso so he will be relaxed for his party:

I have been working on this as my mindless project---it looks bigger than I think it is:

Toe for scale.

I finished a book called "Dear Mrs. Bird" which was fine. It is about a young woman during the Blitz who goes to work for an 'agony aunt'. It is well written and interesting but I read another novel (can't think of the name--about a family that lives on an island in the English channel that is their own country--the girls have to go to London during the war? Does that ring a bell?) and it covered the same ground.

I'm now reading a PD James mystery--one of the Adam Dalgliesh books--Death in Holy Orders. It is the first one I read. I like it. Do you guys like those?

Have a great day!

Pretty shawl and pretty Calypso! I have not read any of those books. I am enjoying The Essex Serpent so far.

Nice beginnings on the shawl! As always, the alpacas are so sweet!
I think I read one of the Dalgliesh books a long time ago.
