'Nuff about my computer woes, I'm back in the proverbial saddle and as I said, rarin' to go. Thanks to my readers (you know who you are) that worried about me in my brief absence. But you can't get rid of me that easily.
That said, don't expect too much posting in the next several days, as I depart tomorrow for 3 days of camping, disc golf, and Halloween mayhem, as it is once again time for the annual Par Infinity All Hallows Heave Tournament. 3 days and 2 nights of discin', drinkin', and general delight, all whilst camping under the stars. I'm lucky because another of Cole's many skills is camp set-up; last year, we had the best home-away-from-home you can imagine, with a kitchen, 2 tents (one for gear, one for a boudoir), jack-o-lanterns, candles, a seasonally-themed tablecloth-clad dining table, and a 300sqft. tarp to keep the rain out! I have high hopes for this year, too. Oh, and did I mention that all this merrymaking takes place in costume? Yep, costumed disc golfing is all the rage out here. My costume? 4 little words: Prom Queen, Day After. Just you wait.
So, what have I been doing for the week-without-blogging? You'd think I'd have accomplished more. Oh well, we do what we can. Here's a shot of some hats I finished; from L to R: Manos del Uruguay beanie, Manos del Uruguay watchcap, Manos del Uruguay watchcap, Noro Silk Garden beanie, KPPM baby beanie. Only the two Manos watchcaps were done this week during the blogging hiatus, along with 1/2 of a 3rd in green. I also started working on an earflap hat made of the Bug Balls handspun I made earlier and the matching Crypt-ick handspun from YarnWench.
And here's a shot of a woodpecker that visited my yard this week. Although it isn't visible in this shot, another showed that it has a red crest. I couldn't believe how docile it was; let me get right up under the apple tree it was perched in before it took off.
I'm off to re-acquint myself with the mouse, do a quick Purl 'n Hurl update for last week, and pack my crap for this weekend. Gotta polish the tiara...
