Silence is Golden
The landscaper guys finished up their work yesterday afternoon. Frodo and I are thrilled to have a bit of peace and quiet. The backhoe would make a certain sound whenever it hit the ground and that made Frodo believe someone was knocking on the door. He exhausted himself from his on again off again barking. He exhausted me. Whenever the equipment was humming and droning, Frodo thought there was a thunderstorm and shivered in fear sitting next to me looking at me with worry.
Of course, whenever someone is working on your property you can't help but watch or catch a glance whenever you pass a window. That is why nothing got done around here, I couldn't concentrate. Yesterday I just gave into the fact that I would be distracted and went with the flow. We are thrilled with our boulder wall, a little sad that it faces the woods and we cannot stare at it lovingly from our windows. However the amount of fill and topsoil they added to the corner of our property should be the solution to our shifting land. Also my husband's mowing experience with be safer and faster.
When I'm not watching the landscapers I'm watching tutorials on colored pencils. I've fallen down a wonderful rabbit hole. Just when I think I've exhausted the internet, something new pops up in my brain and I'm transported into a new learning experience. Life with internet is a blessing.
Right now I'm sitting at my kitchen table, listening to the birds sing. I've got lots of computer work to attend to this morning. After that I'll be baking some blueberry muffins. Tonight we will be watching Hamilton (finally!). I've worked myself up into a frenzy of anticipation to see this musical.
I keep thinking I am close to the lace border on this shawl and whenever I count I am disappointed that I have many many rows to go before I get to the fun part. Maybe today will be the day I can start the lace portion.
I hope you all have a fun safe weekend! Happy Fourth of July to all of you who live in the USA!
