Just a very quick note to say that other adventures have trumped the blogging time. Back toward the end of July I had an unpleasant episode involving a "perforated" appendix, pnemonia and a nine day hospital stay. On the bright side, I was home recuperating and therefore was NOT on the I35 bridge when it decided to end it all. I drove that bridge at least twice a day, often at about the same time it went down.
We were able to make our Toronto trip and the week away helped me get my stamina back. Toronto is lovely, I highly recommend it as a vacation spot. Even the manchild has announced that he plans to move there. Hopefully he'll wait until he has a job. A well-paying job. My souvenirs consisted of a skein of Handmaiden wool/silk and a skein of Fleece Artist Blue Suri. I love these folks but their yarn is hard to find here and when I do, it's expensive. I was happy to find it in Toronto at a reasonable price!
In other news, I finally got my invitation to join Ravelry, so if you're there, say "hello."
