Hello to my baker’s dozen of dedicated readers:
I feel I must apologise for my uncharacteristic absence both from my own blog and from visiting others’. My time of late has been taken up with the following:
(a) settling into my new vaunted managerial position;
(b) looking at real estate (JJ and I have decided that it is time to stop paying $$$ to THE LANDLORD);
(c) trying to keep up with the political news up here – we have a rather ridiculous federal election coming up on 14 October – huge rant potential except the landscape shifts so quickly that by the time I start to write a rant, it’s out of date. Sigh; and
(d) getting Tedplaced into a more comfortable home for him. He moved to Toronto this morning. Although he has some complaints about the service in the restaurant (“wwhhhy don’t the rrestaurrants een Dorondo geeve you menus to look at”), he’s already made a friend and seems comfortable. And since he’s decided he is the top guy intellect-wise in the place, he feels right at home! 🙂
Oh, and I’m still scheming about knitting, especially because my log cabin blankie:
… and the recent felted clogs which JJ kindly sacrificed:
…have been a big hit in the nursing home.
“what do ye mean ‘sacrrrrificed’, lassie!!! Ye telt me ye’d mek me another pair rrright away. In fact, ah notice ye didn’t want to get rrid of the gaudy lime grrrreen ones, but only the classy ones ye made fer me. Tek a guid long harrd look in the mirrrrrror…” etc. etc.
Well, perhaps by the next time I post I’ll have made a new fancy set of felted clogs for JJ!!
I’m going to try to get back to my schedule next week – because I miss it – and I’ll be checking in on the regular blogs as well once the dust settles.
In the meantime, I hope that all is well with you and yours out there.
