It was a very busy weekend here. We celebrated Jay's birthday a few days early. Karsten, Diana and Lucy were here for several days, and on Saturday Kellen and Anita came out from Vancouver and Alexandra drove down from Kamloops. It was a full and busy cottage, and at one point I looked around and was gripped with fear as I thought about an additional six people being here over Christmas. But then I realized that would mean an additional six people to keep an eye on Lucy, which can only be a good thing. She is one very busy little girl, and oh so much fun!
I tried my hardest to get a good picture of her with her granddad, but she had a cold and wasn't too pleased to be held by someone other than her mom and dad. I think the look on her face says it all.

She had happy moments too, and especially loved being outside.

The sweater I knit for her last month is a perfect fit!

Everyone has gone home and it is very, very quiet here. The rain has returned and the sky is dark and threatening yet another downpour.
Lucy might be gone, but she has left behind something to remind me she was here for a visit - a sore throat. Spending time with a sick toddler is a bit like cuddling up to a Petri dish that's incubating a virus. So today will find me sticking pretty close to home. I've got a delicious smelling lentil soup cooking, the new Knitsonik Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook to peruse, and beautiful colours surrounding our cottage. If you have to be sick, this is definitely the way to go about it.
