So, he'd been home for 4 days. It was Sunday and he was due to fly out on Wednesday. We were at Tim Horton's having coffee with my parents around suppertime, lamenting the fact that Jeff would most likely not be home until the end of the summer. My mom commented that it was too bad we could go spend the summer in Saskatchewan with him. It was, almost comically, a real "Lightbulb Moment". Jeff and I looked at each other, and I said "well, why can't we?", and thus started the craziest 18 hours of my life. My parents took our cat, Jeff's parents took our dog, Jeff's aunt agreed to foster our fish. We bought a bike rack for the new bikes we'd just purchased, loaded up the van, and were on the road for a cross-country adventure by noon the next day. Please don't bring up the mess this mad dash left in our house, I really don't want to think about it. Ugh!
So, now we're all settled in, renting an extra room from Jeff's (kinda looney) landlady in a rinky-dink town just outside of Regina. Despite the (really really dry) heat, the freak thunderstorms and the multiple tornado warnings, my heart is so happy it could just burst. I have my family together again, where it belongs <3 I'll talk more about our trip in another post, we really do live in a beautiful country.
Now, for something completely different (any other Monty Python fans out there?)! WIP Wednesdays! I just discovered this fun meme via Ravelry, and I'm excited to join in.
First up is a Ribbed Lace Bolero, in a pale yellow Berroco Pure Pima cotton yarn. (Ravelry project link). I really want to get this finished, so I have something to pair with the sleeveless tops I recently bought.
The other is my Tao Scarf, made with Patons Silk Bamboo in a lovely green. (Ravelry project link). Sorry for the quality of the phone photos. I left the battery charger to my good camera at home and haven't had a chance to buy a new one yet (ugh!).
check out the links to the other WIP Wednesday participants at Tami's Amis :) Later!
