Veering off . . . to Ohio


You know how I am always complaining about how I have so much knitting on the needles? Well, I went out and bought TWO new circs to cast on a flippin' Hemlock Ring blanket. And the packing and preparation for our trip to the States is languishing so that I can knit 'just one more round, maybe two tops' again and again.
It was also too beautiful outside today to pack, so when I got tired of knitting, the littlest and I went out for a park in the neighbourhood and down by the river. On the way, she stopped at the little park behind us and did her first swinging of the year.

She's pretty excited about going to Ohio for March break. She keeps singing, 'We're going to O-Hi-Oooooo, to-mor-Ooooow!' She really likes how it sounds. It's very catchy. I must get back to packing (or 'start' at least), and get a good night's sleep. I gots to navigate my way through Detroit in the morning, and I am a wee bit anxious about getting lost. Good times.

Sweet dreams,

N
