I got home from visiting my mom on Tuesday, and on Wednesday Rebekah arrived for a quick two day visit. It is a two week holiday in Korea, so she took advantage of the time off to come home for some Western immersion. It was great to see her, and when we said goodbye it was nice to think that in a couple of months her year long teaching adventure will be over and she will be returning to Canada for good. Well, maybe not for good, but at least for the foreseeable future.
I think the thing Rebekah was most looking forward to - aside from seeing Anton - was being able to use an oven. She doesn't have one at her apartment in Korea (they don't seem to be popular with Asians), and has really missed not being able to bake. So much so that she has perfected cake baking in her rice cooker! She wanted to make a Greek dish with lamb her first night here, and I was happy to sit and knit, watching someone else cook dinner for me. Here we are at The Art We Are, catching up on each other's news.
I am doing well so far with my Self-imposed Sock Club. Here are February's socks, done well ahead of time thanks to all the knitting I got in when visiting my mom.

It's extremely hard to take pictures of one's own feet even though, as my older sons like to point out, I am not that far away from them.
