Thank Goodness for Skype and...a crow?

I got to Skype with my husband yesterday and now that I know he's doing well and that he's already enjoying himself (somewhat) I feel better.  I've been busying myself this morning with making muffins and hanging out with the kids.

Anyway, here's some Sophie!

It's not much, but the new section was the zig zags on the edge.  This is the 17th page of the pattern done.

My other Sophie:

This is the 8th page of the pattern done.  I'm really, really, really in love with this one.

Next up, I have where I currently am on the mystery CAL:

This is all 7 squares I've completed.  I'm going to be working on the 8th one this afternoon.

Now, on to something funny that happened today.  Actually, I'm kind of thinking this is what brightened my mood a bit.  I have made a crow friend.  Yes, crow, like the bird.  I was baking muffins this morning and I could hear a crow cawwing, but I didn't know where it was.  I realized quickly that it was coming from the hood vent of my stove.

So I pulled the filter off of it and looked up.  Sure enough, there was a crow stuck in the vent.  So I grabbed a towel from the laundry room and wrapped my hand in it.  I reached in between the fan blades and pulled him out.  He was really struggling, so I wrapped him in the towel so he couldn't escape and be flying around my kitchen.  I didn't want any poop on my fresh baked muffins, you know?!

He settled down and almost seemed relieved when he realized he was safe.  I put him on the porch, thinking maybe if he's injured I'd be able to tell, but he hopped around a few times and flew away.  Now he's sitting on my balcony.  I think I made a friend.

Off to go clean my filthy house.  Maybe play some video games.  Happy stitching, everyone.
