Today it hit a wonderous 49 degrees Celsius (that is 120 Fahrenheit, boys and girls) here in southern Ontario. Woot. You can imagine just how much fantarific stuff got done here today. It is still sweltering in this house with no air conditioning or air movement and I don’t even feel the urge to blog except that people start complaining if I don’t. 😉
It is far too hot to stitch these past couple of days, as my fingers are so sweaty that I can’t hold the needle and I would be afraid of staining the fabric anyway. Lily Maiden has gotten a few stitches in to her, but not nearly enough.
I have managed to compile my 101 things in 1001 days list. After seeing Belinda’s and Jenna’s lists, I have finally gotten off my hiney and created a list. Unfortunately actually creating the list, I don’t think, counts as one of those things.
As you go over my list, you may be surprised at a few of the things I have listed. Aside from re-reading a number of the novels listed, I have never done most of the things on my list. (Now before you freak out – I do brush my teeth. Really. I am just horrible at doing it every single day. I usually miss one day out of 4, or only remember to do it after lunch. Then I will go out, remember I forgot, then pop a piece of gum in my mouth to make my breath not so horrible. I just need consistency. I have very bad oral hygene.)
Well, that was probably a bit too much information. Moving on.
We have decided to take a vacation. Woot! We will be going to New Brunswick for a couple of weeks, visiting family, seeing the sites, etc. Should be fun and relaxing. Bad news is I miss a couple of important events while we are gone. One being the annual stitching retreat hosted by Knowledge and Needles. I will try to keep my blog updated while I am there, but I have no idea what kind of internet access we will have. I do promise that when we get settled back in I will have oodles of stories and photos.
My joy today is my readers. I have gotten so many wonderful emails of support and comments from all of you that I can’t help but feel special. Thank you all so much!
