Remind you of anything? Oh, I don't know, how about Newfoundland? The rock? The yarn is Regia's Canadian line. Each province has it's own colourway and this one, well this one is Newfoundland. Granted, I've never been to Newfoundland but if I had to describe it as a colour, this carnival and bubble gum colour would not be it! Dontcha just love it though? I predict that these will be my new favourite socks. I love how the stripes are of different widths and there's nothing I love more these days than orange and pink together so: Go Newfoundland!!! Oh, why didn't I get the Quebec colourway and show some provincial pride? Quebec sucks! Well the Regia Quebec anyway. Newfoundland is much better! (Nova S cotia is nice too ;0)
Speaking of orange and pink. Here's my finished Mason*Dixon washrag. I was so eager to finish it that I cast off a full repeat too soon. Oops! It's still a good size though so it's fine. Just like I thought, there's lots of Sugar'n'cream leftover...probably enough for one or two more of these.
We participated in the Bell Walk for Kids yesterday and had lots of fun. Julian even met the CFCF12 mascot (though he was asleep in the stroller for all the other mascots). Stephen and I have been participating in the walk for 4 years and are really supportive of the cause, esapecially now that we have a child of our own. The walk is in support of Kids Help Phone which is an anonymous counselling service for kids and teens of any age.
I saw a lot of colleagues there too (I work for Bell) and it was really nice to catch up with everyone. I'm really sad to be going back to work and will greatly miss spending all this time with my Jubilee Bubilee but would be lying if I said I wasn't also looking forward to going back to work.
Of course, the whole return is being made easier by my mother-in-law who is taking a sabbatical from her gradeschool teaching career to care for Julian next year. She is just so excited about it. My father-in-law is retired and will also enjoy spending time with the little guy. It's going to be great! She's even going to pick him up in the morning so we won't have to rush him in the morning and he can just wake up when he pleases. We're really lucky. And also very grateful!
Well, tomorrow is Parenting Book Blog Along day so I better go find a quiet spot and read the next chapter in the book. It's a long one too ;0)
