Hello! It's been a while, huh? I had hoped to post yesterday, but we've been having problems with our internet connection. Pea thinks the contractors may have damaged the wire to the cable modem while working on the siding. He fiddled with it last night, and so far it's been okay this morning. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will stay that way. It doesn't help that Mercury is retrograde until next Saturday. Mercury always really messes with me.
What have I been up to? Well, most importantly was the four day figure skating extravaganza!! We had a blast . . . well, my mom and I had a great time. My dad came with us two days, and Pea came with us two days, and each of them were pretty bored. We got to watch the practice sessions and the competitions. We saw a lot of the skaters, coaches and choreographers walking around in the lobbies. And one day at lunch we even met and got autographs from the pair team that ended up winning the silver medal! It was a perfect four days.
I spent last week catching up on all the "real life" stuff. We now have groceries, clean laundry, a clean house and bills that are paid. I even made wheat bread from scratch yesterday. All of the Walk-A-Thon prizes have been packed up, and the last few are being mailed out in the next day or so.
And yes, there has been time for knitting too. During breaks in the skating I managed to knit a pair of Fetching mitts with a ball of Cashmerino Aran I bought at Rhinebeck. What a fun and quick pattern. I finished them on the second day, and have been wearing them ever since. I'm a bad blogger and have no pictures yet, but I'll post them one day this week. I'm also working on a Clapotis and a couple of pairs of socks I'm knitting with some blog pals. That's plenty to keep me busy, and I need to get started on some Christmas knitting too.
I guess this is a lame post for my first day back, but I'd better get it uploaded before the internet conks out again.
