Greetings and salutations dear friends!
Well the first thing I love for "I like Thursday" is that Oxford scientists have had promising results with a covid-19 vaccine. It will still be months until their study is done...but it is a faint light at the end of the tunnel. Of course, this news is making other researchers work even harder.
I love Oxford, mostly because I love PBS and have been watching mystery shows based there for decades. First there was Inspector Morse, then Inspector Lewis and now Endeavour. My favorite is Inspector Lewis and that show has great views of the university. Of course, who couldn't love the institution that brought us C. S. Lewis, Tolkien, and Lewis Carroll?
I like that we had three partial days of sunshine instead of the grey rain or overcast days that have plagued us for months. I've gotten some gardening done and my favorite nursery is open during the shutdown--they supply vegies and herb plants and deemed essential. It is also open air shopping. Everyone wears masks and maintains social distance. It's really the only place I've visited (besides checking on my Mom) since the lockdown (our groceries are delivered).
I'm still making masks but I got one UFO finished this week (or semi-finished). I finished this top for my friend Linda and at her request, made a table runner from the few blocks left.
We continue to trim Scout's hair and she is enjoying being out in the garden with me. One day this week we had a weird experience while walking. Suddenly Scout stopped and jumped on a neighbor's lawn.
Suddenly Scout turned and began to run away. I swear she thought it was a monster squirrel and she wasn't confronting that creature. We haven't seen the fabric on the ground since --so the squirrel must have decided it need some extra insulation in its nest. It was hilarious to see Scout's reaction!
Over on the Pennsylvania Piecemaker (suffrage) blog, tomorrow will be "Flower Friday" and will feature flowers of yellow, purple, and white to honor our foremothers. Tomorrow I'll be talking about my own suffrage garden and invite you to join me!
