It was so good to be home today. Camping was fun, but am I ever glad it is one year away again. That gives me time enough to forget the sheer amount of labour, drama and frustration involved when you go camping with 22 children (only 15 slept over) 2 teachers and 3 parents (hey, the parents were GREAT). Oh, and it rains. At 4:30 AM. Oh. And then the kids wake up at 5:45 AM. And they are AWAKE. And hungry.

So yeah. A year is just time enough to make it seem like a good idea again.
See my Bean? She snuck into one of the kids tents, scratched at their sleeping bag and made herself a nest!

Today, when I wasn't sleeping (still plagued by a cough. 2 weeks and counting) I read a fantastic book. It has been a long time since I read a can't-put-this-down book.

Anything else? Oh yes! My KnitPicks order finally arrived. I have 2 skeins to dye, yarn for my tank top and Knitting Vintage Socks. I am a little non-plussed to see how many of the best looking socks are called "Gentlemen's" something or other. I haven't looked closely enough to see what size they turn out to be. If they are reasonable I will make them anyways. Now I just need to order some mini circular needles and be done with inadvertently poking poor Kira with my sock needle spherical contraption.
