Rip it, rip it

Only 4 more rows till  back to where I'm supposed to be on the sock I'm knitting. At least I hope I'm back to the right place. This is the last of the projects I had laid aside and then picked up again many months later, didn't leave notes on where I was. It soewhat difficult to pick up and start again and mistakes were made,but maybe the shawl and the socks will hold together for a while.

Accepting that I screwed up by not being more specific in my notes and not whaling on myself for that.

Grateful for being almost finished with the socks and ready to move on to the sweater.

More than grateful that Erin's biopsy was clean.

Hopeful for a day alone today so that I can get caught up around here.

Erin's house now has siding on the back and this week is sheet rock time. She's terrupibly anxious to get out of here and into her own space totally understandable, but I'm gonna miss em when they've moved even though it's only to the next hilltop.

Watched "The Magnificent Seven" and "Sully" over the weekend. Thought I was going to hate the remake of 7, but after a while I settled into it and was content, if nothing else, to gaze at Denzel being the best good/bad guy as only he can. Tom Hanks, always a fave of mine, did a fine job of portraying the heroic pilot who landed that plane in the Hudson River.

And now it's Monday again. Erin starts full time at the surgery center so leaves early. Anah' s supposed to fix her lunch for school. We shall see how that goes.

Temps predicted to rise to the 50's, a welcome break from the negative numbers and snow.
