just a liiiitle more

My flight home was uneventful, if a bit long – the flight itself was about 7.5 hours, plus all that waiting around on either end (and it was far from the gate to customs and everything here in Toronto!). They showed one of the same movies as on the last flight (Ironman), which I thought was pretty lame – but this plane had leather seats. Did I mention that this flight was also delayed? I got an email last week from my booking agency with the details – it was delayed by almost 6 hours. At least, again, I knew in advance!

My sister apparently harvested a flying saucer (patty-pan-type) squash while I was away that had gone unnoticed – and when harvested it was the size of, I dunno, a smallish cabbage? The one thing I asked my family to do while I was away was to watch my plants, and they didn’t really do it. So now I’ve lost a few tomatoes and harvested a couple baseball bat zucchinis this evening. Sigh.

I think my attempt to beat jet lag is working, because it’s 11 pm here and I’m still (sort of) awake. I’ve been up for about 20 hours though, so I think it’s now time for bed!

Yarn photos shortly! I got some great stuff across the pond!

    Here’s a small-world story for you. My mom’s neighbour, not a knitter, brought her friend to our SNB tonight because the friend just took up knitting and wanted some advice on her project. The neighbour and I were chatting (I’ve known her for 22 years!); I was showing her my knit socks and she said, “My friend’s daughter just wrote a book on sock knitting.” I guessed, “Laura Chau?” She said, “Yes!” I explained I don’t know you but that I’ve read your blog and saw your book announcement there.

    (I don’t want to post their names here, so shoot me an email if you’re curious.)

    It’s hard to have someone else watch something. Unless they really get it then it is just likely to fall by the wayside.

    Hopefully, you’ll be able to ressurect the rest of your garden for the season and won’t have too many ginormous veggies!

    That’s a shame about the garden. I hope it recovers. Glad your trip went well!

    Use those giant zucchini for zucchini bread! Or some other baked goods. It’s a great way to use up those not-so-great-tasting zukes.
