I am just reeling from the news I received today !
I have been house-sitting for the last 9 days and my email inbox was full !
Good news ! ~ I won a CD from Fil as part of the Grow Your Blog Party (of earlier this month) ... fantastic ! Fil is an Irish folksinger ... can hardly wait to hear her beautiful Irish voice coming from my computer ;)
As well, Monika has announced her article has been published in STITCH magazine ... in which she has mentioned my name and my blog address :) I phoned our Chapters/Indigo store and they have a few copies (he thought, but may be an older issue .... the important thing is they carry it !)... I will check that out next week ;)
The bad news was to find that there is trouble in one of my daughters' marriage ... I am not surprised but disappointed, none-the-less.
The sad news ... to occupy myself (while trying not to get overly involved with my daughters news) I decided to catch up on my blogger friends ... many blogs later there was a message that Pam (The Crafty Mugwump) has succumbed to her disease. I had just gotten to know her a little before she wasn't posting much anymore ... her son broke the news. Rest in peace, Pam.
