We had a nice lunch with our friends yesterday afternoon. It's always good to get together and catch up. Mike's sister will be visiting today, and we'll be heading out to the Oceanside Pier with her. We have meets with friends set up for Thursday, Friday, and Monday as well, so we've turned into social butterflies. It was the point of coming here. We're being very careful in our meet-ups, maintaining distance and wearing masks when we can't. Several of our friends have already been vaccinated, and so the risk is somewhat less. We will be eligible for vaccines beginning Monday, and so I'm hoping to get appointments for soon after we get home.
As for the rest of the day, it was mostly spent slow-stitching. I worked some more on my redwork piece.
It's the most difficult stitch I've attempted in my embroidery. Now that it's finished, it seems as if the bullion stitches will be no problem at all, but we'll just see. The bullion stitch is still to come. There are three small inchies left to do, and then the one center motif with a little verse in it.
So no sight-seeing, and that means I don't have a lot to tell you. We're just waiting for Mike's sister to call. She's driving down from Fullerton, and she'll stay the night at a local hotel. (Yes, I suppose she could stay on our hide-a-bed, but they are notoriously uncomfortable, and she didn't wait for an invitation.) We're expecting her any minute. We'll start out here, and then head out to see the pier. It's a little cooler today, and so we want those coastal clouds to burn off before we go to the beach.
Nobody fell down or died yesterday, so all is well at this end. I love the Oceanside Pier, and so I know it's going to be a good day.
