I have 3 random photos to share with you today . . . Thanks to…
How’s the weather where you are? This is mine:
We’re experiencing temps in the 50s with a predicted high in the low 60s tomorrow, which is very unseasonal for February in Massachusetts. I’ve checked the yard for crocus and snowdrops but haven’t found any yet. I bet it won’t be long now, though, if this continues.
Remember when I got progressive lenses last year? I’m happy to say that I have fully adjusted to them for driving and being out in the world. However. They don’t work at all for my computer set up at work. From what I’ve read, I think I need special computer glasses but I’m hesitant to spend a bunch of money on another pair of prescription lenses. I also read that wearing readers that are 1/2 the strength of your regular readers can do the trick. I got some yesterday and will try them at work today and report back. I have an appointment with the eye doctor but it’s not until May and I can’t struggle with this until then so I’m open to suggestions if you’ve experienced this, too.
I’m taking over some of the collection development at my library as a way of reducing the workload on the Assistant Director and I spent a few hours yesterday getting caught up. I’d forgotten how much I enjoy doing this and I love getting the scoop on books coming out later this year.
In knitting news, the Advent striped socks continue slowly. I’m working on the heel of sock #1 now and it’s been so long since I’ve knit socks that I had to . . . gasp . . . check my picot edge sock pattern! I have a question, though. When you knit the heel with a different yarn than the main sock, do you pick up the stitches along the heel flap with the main yarn or the contrasting yarn?
Finally, on the reading front, I started The Shipping News this week and I’m loving it. So far, I don’t remember a thing about reading it before, and I’m completely taken with the language. SO good.
