Hello Thursday!

It's been a bit on the busy side here since I last posted on TNT. 

Tuesday--still in Eugene--I had an annual exam at the eye doctor's. I was pretty hesitant but it all went OK. Not much difference from a regular visit except for temperature checks and masks, no wandering around the glass frame area trying everything on (luckily I don't need glasses), less 'energy' from the employees interacting and working together (I think they did this behind closed doors). I really like my eye doctor--she asked me if I thought her 20-year old daughter should go back to school in Arizona (Northern Arizona, but still) and I gave her my honest opinion (no). Then I packed the dogs and some stuff into the car, and drove back out here. 

In other news:

This is the mindless sweater I'm working on. Still doing the yoke and haven't divided for the sleeves yet. 

We bought a greenhouse window for our kitchen, and it got installed yesterday. Tim has a lot of cacti that are back in Eugene and he's like to have them out on the coast. I'm not a huge fan, and we think having them in the greenhouse window is a great way to fit them in.


Last evening before dinner we went to the overlook a few miles from our house. You can see here our rock from a distance as well as the cape. To get here, you drive south from our house along the bay, drive up a hill, and then walk up about a quarter mile or so. It is a nature preserve that is an old Jesuit retreat center and is very quiet and peaceful.

Ephemera:

-We're watching "Safe" on Netflix and it is good.
-I'm reading "Utopia Avenue" by David Mitchell and it is also good.
-WE SAW NEOWISE! Saturday night---it was clear enough and dark enough at 10:30 to see it out our window.

Have a good Thursday!

I think the greenhouse window sounds like a great addition!!!
Your sweater is a good knit-nice colors.

Like the greenhouse window idea. Glad your eye exam went well. I go in next Thursday - just for a pressure check, so not big deal. Lucky you saw the comet! Our skies have not been clear and I wouldn't even know where to look!

I know you're a Casapinka fan so I hope you are signing up for the Sharon Show MKAL. It's going to be fun. I am trying to convince myself to use stash yarn but some of Miss Babs sets are calling to me. Are you in?

I'm looking at the Miss Babs sets now!

I love the new window and good for you speaking up about that 20 year old, scary times. Stay safe.
