As I mentioned previously, I was summoned to serve jury duty this Friday. I spent most of today sitting in a courtroom. During the morning orientation in the juror assembly room, we were informed that the county was at an all-time high of 184 cases waiting to go to trial. So of course it was inevitable that my name was selected for a juror pool. I reported to the courtroom and sat through proceedings, and at the end of the day the judge ordered us to return on Tuesday because Monday is a holiday.
The good news is that I completed the mate to the toe-up purple hand-dyed merino wool sock that you’ve already seen in previous posts. I also had the above orange and black striped sock that I started in Morro Bay and brought down to Ventura with me. I got all the way to the heel today, but I wasn’t able to take a good photo because the sun was already setting when I got home.
I was able to take this photo this morning in the juror assembly room, though. So you can see how my day started: I got the seat right behind the trash can.
