I'm on my vacation in Ottawa, Ontario! This is where I grew up and lived from 1987-2010 so pretty much all of my friends still live here.
My friend, Meggi, is actually getting married on Saturday and so I came to town. My mom was in Bowmanville last weekend for Mother's Day. She drove me back with her so hooray for free rides! I have a train ticket for the ride home on Sunday evening.
It's been nice having no major responsibilities. Yesterday I went to three different coffee shops in the Glebe and dinner with some friends. It was really nice.
I've been out lots seeing misc. friends for the past few days. It's been nice catching up with people. I've also been working like a mad woman on a pair of socks for me. I picked up a ball of Regia Hand Dye Effect at Soper Creek Yarn before I left. Look how pretty it is!
I'm using the awesome sock pattern from Silver's Sock Class. I just finished the heel and have started on the main part of the foot. At this rate I'll have my first one done before I get back home which will be pretty cool.
When I get back to Bowmanville I'll share pictures with you from our very first trip to the Bowmanville Zoo. It was pretty awesome. Until then, here's a picture to hold you over!
