Back to work this morning. Hmmmm. It is really dark at 4 am. I'll be honest, I was somewhat confused when the alarm went off. What was that noise? As for getting out of bed, getting dressed and putting on make-up before 5 am? No, not really working for me after three weeks of vacation. LOL LOL LOL Retirement is starting to look pretty good. I told my clerks that I was used to napping between 1 pm and 2 pm...so no talking during that time. They tried to be good, but they chatter more than I do. And honestly, I was just too darn busy to even breathe, never mind nap. LOL (No, I don't really nap in prison!)
I FINALLY did a tiny cross stitch project. I seriously had to think about how to start. I think it was too long between projects. I need to get a few projects done if I want to attend the finishing retreat next year. LOL
I found two at the Madonna Inn. This is a tourist destination in San Luis Obispo. Mr. Madonna passed away several years ago, but his wife and family still run the restaurant and hotel. And yes, its colors are pink and white. LOL That is part of the charm. At night, the wheels on the wagon and the horses' legs are outlined in neon and "run and turn". Very cool.
See the pink "M"s?
Lady Madonna Cow...
In one of their garden areas, Monarch Cow.
Back towards home, at one of the businesses in our town, the John Cowe Cow. I thought this one was pretty special. Must be the farmer in me.
I've seen a few more cows, but I don't think that slamming on the brakes in the middle of the road is the best way to make new friends. LOL I will get pictures in a safe manner, I promise.
I've started on the scarf for my son's friend, but need to get a bit more done before showing you. I want to make sure that the pattern makes sense.
So, off to get dinner on the table. Dad has eaten and the day is slowing down. I wish each of you a week filled with joy and happiness. Be kind to one another.
