HOW THE DAY GETS AWAY!

At 5:00 a.m., I was up and had the coffee on, and had knitted a few inches on the red scarf. I was about to boot up and post to my blog, but then River, who spent the night here, woke up. So after some cuddle time, *he* wanted to play on the computer, and since I live on a boat and there's not a whole lot else for a 9-year-old to do, I sat and knit while I finished my coffee.

By then Michael was up, so I knit some more while we had another coffee. Then we took River out for breakfast before taking him home ... at which point I'd been dealing with said 9-year-old for several hours, so I took me and my knitting down to Clover Point for some meditation time. (I'd forgotten my camera -- which never happens! -- so I took some pictures with my cell phone, and they turned out badly.) There was at least 30 small boats out along a line from Trial Island to Ogden Point, fishing, so they must be biting (either that or they all heard the same untrue rumour...)

While I was there, my cell phone rang, and it was a friend of my son's visiting from Gabriola, whom I'd promised to take into the new yarn store -- so I drove over to pick her up, and off we went to Knotty by Nature. I got to hang out and knit while Caroline went over a box full of potential consignment goodies (fair trade Bolivian alpaca knitted goodies, to be precise) with Stephanie. The Noro socks are --> <-- this close to being ready for the toe decreases, which makes me very happy!

Got home at 3 p.m., just as the phone rang ... it was my daughter Hailey in Whistler to remind me that I hadn't posted to my blog yet! After we had a catch-up chat, Michael was waiting for me because we had some marina-related stuff to talk about and decisions to make ... and then it was time for dinner, which of course, I haven't had a chance to plan -- so off we went in search of a suitable take-out dinner (which turned out to be Chicken Satay from a great little Thai place for me and a cheese burger from the pub next door to it for him!), and then we went for a little drive...

... and here I am now, 7:30 p.m, FINALLY posting to my blog. Whew, I'm tired just from re-reading this! And I won't even TELL you my plans for tomorrow.....

Sometimes there are just so many things happening in our lives to post about that there is no time to post. No one can accuse you of sloth!
