Well somehow everyone has ended up at my apartment for a cookout. It would have been nice if I had known about this in advance so I could have actually bought the stuff to do one.

That looks like an interesting technique---never heard of that before, I may try it sometime.

The ripple I'm working on, I saw a picture in the Herrschner's catalog and figured I could make it without buying the pattern. It's a mix of Christmas colors: red, green, and variegated. Mr. thinks it'll work, so I'll buy some more yarn to finish it. I only bought enough at first to make a sample.

I am sending a link to one of the cutest videos I've ever seen. Watch it all the way to the end and pay attention to her facial expressions and her arm movements (really close to the end); then listen carefully to the singer she requests next. Let me know what you think. I don't think I've sent this before, but with chemo brain, you never can tell.

wow, this is a farmers market about 3/4 hour from here that we often visit. I have taken many a bus load of kids there for day trips too. It is an amazing place full of all the wonderful things you find at a farmers market.
This building had all the good stuff in it and on most days you can hardly move in there for all the people. It is going to be hard on a lot of folks whose business was in there.

Happy Labour Day, everyone!

Notice the "u" in the word. Strange, eh? Despite currently being in a border city and a nine hour drive away from Canada's capital, I somehow feel even more Canadian when I am at home in Sault Ste. Marie. Kim and I made the drive on Saturday to surprise my mom. Yesterday, we went to my camp/cottage for the day and night. The weather did not quite cooperate, but we had a great time. In fact, the water (at 65F) was warmer than the air (63F)... that made for a refreshing swim!

A quick picture of the north shores of Lake Huron on St. Joseph Island:


Anyway, Kim and I will be in the Sault until about Saturday and then we'll make the drive back to Ottawa. It should be a good time here.

Also, I should be able to contribute here a little more often now... my most recent contract at Passport Canada finished and I am now unemployed. It's not a great situation, but I have applied for employment insurance, for which I am eligible. It should provide me with a bit of income until I can find another position. We shall see! Obviously, the good news is that I will now be closer to a computer and be able to follow along with the countdown as we move throughout September and close-in on the debut of the Blossoms thread!

I think that's it for now. Have a great Monday, everyone. I hope you're enjoying the last of the long weekend!

No, it is a 1940s Cape Cod that needs way too much updating.

There was a lot of lightning flashes to the north of here. Noticed them about 9:30 last night and when I got up at 4:30, they were still flashing! If there was a storm, I slept through it!

Good afternoon, MMC! Happy Labor/Labour Day!!!

I hope this finds everyone well!!!

It is cool here in mid-Michigan! It was perfect temperatures for canning - I now have pints of ketchup cooling on the counter as well as the leftovers in a bowl in the fridge. Took a lot longer to make than the recipe said - hours longer! Tired now, but at least there is leftover chicken to eat. Was going to do more canning tomorrow, but something came up and I had to change my plans.

Be MERRY!!!
