This is the third and final week for Monday travel days. While I do love traveling, I'm ready for my normal weekly routine. Today has to be a dual-purpose day for both Monday and Tuesday. I'm bracing myself for a long one.
Last week I trekked across the Canadian border again.
Life is a balancing act, and the trip was a combination of work and play.
The CN Tower.
Yes, I went up. No, I didn't get sick. A ride to the top was my daughter's idea. In all fairness, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.
Since I'm a baseball fan . . .
The obligatory ballpark shot.
I have fond memories of growing up with Hudson's Bay point blankets. They speak of winter, cold nights and snuggling under the covers.
I see a new project in my future.
As if traveling with teens wasn't challenging enough, I ran into a bit of a knitting crisis. Once we were settled in for our stay in Toronto, I pulled out my knitting only to discover I didn't have the needles I was sure I had packed. I turned everything inside out and upside down. The needles I needed to start my project were nowhere to be found.
Like any good knitter, I rose to the occasion. I went in search of needles and found some.
The new project is up and running.
After I had worked a few rows of this project, I realized it's very similar in construction to another one in the works - Miss Winkle. Both are asymmetrical, garter stitch shawls. At least I'm consistent.
We made a quick stop at Niagara Falls on the way home.
It's easy to lose track of time when you're traveling. Just like that, it's Tuesday . . . time to get back to work.
