Watcha doin Weds: Snow!

It's hot!

Reporting first snow of the season! It’s cold out there. Curled up in front of my virtual DVD fireplace, knitting and listening to Flanders Recorder Quartet LIVE concert @ Seoul 2009

Winter bring it on!

My Mother gave me a fireplace for Christmas some years ago (on DVD) Low maintenance, no heat, but warmth...

Shoulder Shawl take 2

As some of you know, the original of this shawl was the result of an all night knitting marathon. In a fit of insanity, I ripped it out as the sun came up. trying to reconstruct design from photos.

Currently reading: A Brief History of Life in the Middle Ages by Martyn Whittock. Really interesting read, I love social history.

Meanwhile in the Great White North, Jack has been up to mischief…

Jack decided to take a run in the snow. He dashed out the front door, didn’t wait to be picked up. Sat in the snow looking around, then dashed down the side of the house and squeezed under the fence. Meanwhile I headed downstairs through the house and opened the back door. He streaked in and gave me a look…
Why did you let me do that it’s cold out there!
He went to Cat jail to warm up.

Toronto and Rob Ford, the slow train wreak!

Picture from Toronto Islands across the harbour

Ok, I have to share my embarrassment with the slow motion train wreak that is the Mayor of Toronto. I was born and raised here. This the largest city in Canada, it is a clean, safe and an interesting place to visit. Legally under Municipal, Provincial and Federal law in Canada, a Mayor cannot be removed from office for this kind of behaviour, as much as we might wish it. Obviously this Mayor will cause a review of these policies, we have never had someone so undeserving of the honour of this position. His behaviour has over shadowed any $$$ savings and rationalizing of the cities finances, and the extensions in process to Transit systems.
Currently we are stuck with him for another year :0(

6 Saturdays till Christmas!

Friday

Good morning!

It’s Friday and like usual I’m running around like a wet hen. I have Physio, then a visit with my friends at my LYS, then off to shop for groceries and lunch with MiL. Try to get some knitting done for the Craft Sale at Church next month. Somewhere in there have to make time to see a friend recently moved to a seniors residence.

Hilda is 90yrs old and till recently lived in her own home. She is a close family friend.
