In the eyes of a nine year old boy

Bill put on The Notebook the other night. It is a wonderful movie about making mistakes and then finding a way to do things right. It is a love story. And in your typical love story there are scenes in which affection is shown. Thinking of some of the scenes in the movie, I'm not sure that I would have put it on for the kids. But I wasn't home at the time and so didn't have a say. In any case, later I heard Liam talking about it. Being a typical boy, his reaction went something like this... "What was the point of that movie. All it was was lip connect, lip connect, lip connect." I wonder how long before the hormones kick in and lip connect is all that he can think about.

And I am pleased to say that I am back from my visit to get my head examined and the lump has been removed and was pronounced to be caused by a blocked duct. They are sending it off to be tested any way, but don't expect any nasty results. Sorry, no photos.

The swelling is going down on my finger and my hand is no longer throbbing.

Only one new maggot has been spotted by Bill and he quickly dispatched it. I wonder where he was hiding? The maggot, not Bill.

And because you have stuck with me through all of my moaning I shall reward you with my latest efforts at the wheel. This is the combination of two bundles of dyeing mistakes. This is 4 ounces of a blend of both mistaken dye pots. I am going to combine it with the 2 ounces of the light colour and the 2 ounces of the dark colour that I have also spun, to give me enough yarn for a stripey scarf. I'm hoping that it looks as nice when I finish it as it does in my imagination.
And this is my Fortune's Rock roving. I am spinning it fine for a change. I also only had one 4 ounce bundle of it and decided that I would keep it for my self. I can't wait to see it plied!

I hope that you have a great weekend! This weekend is the Highland Games in Fredericton and there will be a lot of people around so I hope that market will be busy.

You had it removed, and you are up and about and blogging??? Brave woman. Glad to hear it was an ok procedure.

Glad to hear that you're surviving, at least, and that you're improving! Good luck with the highlanders! They should like wool things, yes? ;)

I'm so glad to hear that the lump turned out to be minor and the maggots have left you in peace. I hope that fun colposcopy turned out great, too!

God, I go away for a few days and look what happens! Sheesh.

Hope all is well really soon, and the yarn is awesome as always.
