After two noisy days at the beginning of the week created by the insulating company, I basked in the silence of Wednesday and Thursday. Even the pets breathed a sigh of relief. Frodo did well and mostly ignored them. Holly hid under our bed for most of the first day but on the second day she put on her big girl pants and ran downstairs to be under the sofa that my husband (her beloved) was sitting. Of course that was the time the workers were propping open the front door for the blown in insulation. Luckily, she has no desire to ever be outside and we fenced off the area just in case. All of that strategizing exhausted me.
(for those of you who are new here, we rescued Holly in the winter off the side of the road - she was close to death at 8 weeks old being abandoned by a not nice person).
Around here, there was a heat wave that I skillfully ignored for two whole days. I walked as early as I could and briefly so Frodo and I didn't get too hot. My inflammatory arthritis does not like hot and humid and I'm supposed to avoid the sun (like a vampire...).
I finished knitting a shawl two days ago. Now to do the magical soaking and blocking.
Around here there's been:
-sketching and a lot of personal art journaling - big salads - menu planning - knitting - eating the perfect watermelon - watching Stranger Things and being a little bit scared but not too scared - lots of reading on the back patio in shade
Today our daughter and son in law arrive for a long weekend visit, I am excited to see them and be with them. It's going to be a good kind of busy!
What have you been up to this past week?
