Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the comment section on my last post. If you like a good mystery series I encourage you to read through the comments. There are tons of ideas for shows to watch. I would also say, judging from the comments, there is one show you probably don't want to view. I had never heard of the film Seven before, and I definitely won't be adding it to my list.
I fully intended to have this post be about spring. There are so many signs of it everywhere, and I never get tired of spotting them. I discovered this in our neighbourhood this past weekend while walking Fergus. I think it's brilliant. It makes me want to start looking in the thrift shops to see if I can find an old rocking chair.
The cottage with the rocking chair also had this banner hanging off their back deck. I'm not usually a fan of banners, but this one made me smile.
A patch of sun on the floor is doggy bliss.
Even the latest teapot spotted on my hike looks a bit like spring.
And that is where today's post was going to end. Then I had my Almost Oops moment. My routine is to get up early, make a cup of tea, look at the news headlines, then read through the list of blogs I follow. When I got to Granny's World I couldn't believe Sue had finished yet another baby sweater. She is an incredibly fast knitter. And that thought almost got me into a lot of trouble.
You see, I am really quite a terrible typist. This feature is enhanced if I am in a hurry, which I was this morning. I quickly typed out a comment on Sue's blog, including the phrase that she is " the fastest knitter I know." Except, and this would be a big except, I had mistyped the word fastest. Just as my finger hovered over the "publish" button I did a quick check of what I had written. Or, in this case, what the auto-correct feature had rewritten. My comment now said that Sue was "the fattest knitter I know."
So I would like to issue an apology. If I have called you names, insulted your latest craft project, or said things that made you consider calling the police, I'm sorry. And if you have any auto-correct horror stories of your own I would love to hear about them. It would make me feel better to know I'm not the only one who has had an Oops or Almost Oops experience.
