It has been almost a week since my last blog post. I really didn't intend for that much time to go by, but I have been waiting until I could make an announcement before I posted again. My frustration is I still don't have the information I need, and until I know for sure what is happening I best not say anything. So here I am on a Tuesday afternoon feeling like I don't have anything worthwhile to write about simply because I can't write about what I want to. I assure you, this makes it all sound much more exciting and mysterious than it really is. I just need to know what I am writing about before I can write about it. So stay tuned - all will be revealed in my next blog post.
In the meantime, the sun is shining, the snow is sparkling, and a gluten-free banana cake is baking in the oven, filling the house with a delicious smell. And I have two bits of good news to report. Yesterday I made the wonderful discovery of a long forgotten Cadbury's Dark Chocolate Fruit & Nut bar stashed away in one of my hiding places. Finding chocolate I have forgotten about is one of my greatest joys in life.
The other good news is I only have six days left to knit on my Sky Scarf. I have caught up on weaving in all the ends to date, and can't wait to cast off next Monday. Kamloops has had a very unusual weather pattern this winter, with weeks of low cloud and fog, with only a few sunny days sandwiched in between. It has been depressing to experience, and even more depressing to knit. The dove grey yarn is getting used up at such an alarming rate I have been afraid I might not have enough. Today's sky with its brilliant blue and white was a welcome change. Even if the remaining six days are overcast I should have just enough dove grey left to finish thanks to today's reprieve.
Next up, the news...hopefully!
