Three on Thurday

I don't usually do Three on Thursday but I have three pretty pictures today so I'll do it! Three colorful images from my house!

One: more little stitches! I did most of the medium green. This still needs some light green and some little flowers but it is on its way to being done.


Two: Easter Egg Surprises! I think I mentioned we are painting rocks to deliver on Easter to our neighbors (and to our two favorite take out restaurants).  We started the decoration but need to ramp that up, obviously.
 Three: last night's sunset.

Tim is over in Eugene: watering plants, seeing what yard work needs to be done, picking up a prescription, bringing back a grill.  I woke up at 4am and finished "Lady in Waiting" and it wasn't that good, unfortunately. I really need a new 'absorb me' book.

Online teaching is going ok. I have had a few people blow off my undergrad class but whatever; I made my expectations clear and if they choose to blow it off, that's on them. They have their first exam on Monday so that should indicate something (not sure what, but something).

My graduate class is once a week, and it is fun. They all know and like each other, so it seems like they have fun and the time goes really fast.

I hope you are doing well and staying safe. My only outing today is to walk the dogs, and then to go to the Post Office. We don't have mail delivery here, but I can walk in to get my paper mail and they have lock boxes for many packages. Sometimes I need to interact with the postal clerk but not often. She is wearing  a mask and gloves, and has a plexiglass plate in front of her.

I have to say, in the past I've been jealous of people who can get Insta cart delivery or have stores where you can get curbside pickup, but I wouldn't give up living in our tiny town for anything right now.

I love that stitchery! Is it a pattern or are you designing it on your own?

Fun projects (and pretty!) and a gorgeous sky.

I think I'm officially obsessed with all those tiny little colorful houses. Can I live inside your embroidery project?
