Back again

Hi everyone, its been a great week. Starting off with a getaway overnight trip to Muskoka woods with Myriam, favorite sister :) and a hot tub. It was a great way to relax and be out to see the fall colors. I'm also very happy to have come back safe and sound from a little...may I emphasize "little" for all you worriers out there...hike to see some waterfalls. Then all the hard work of last week seemed to pay off this week in class, always a bonus. On Thurday my knee was its best ever. I rode on a stationary bike for 5 minutes, have finally gotten it to straighten and it feels over all much stronger and sturdier. My scarves are coming along, I'm in the process of finishing two and I've got two more done. I've also got the process underway to start a knitting etc. group at York and I've met a couple other people who are really interested. Well, now that October is almost out of the way all my tests are done so next week I start writing not so favorite thing to do. Then December is back to doing tests and then it's all over Yay.

I thought this was a pretty cute picture of Ben, he's trying to fit under the desk cause Adam shoved him under there one time. He has lost 2 pounds since September but it's not quite enough...although I'm sure he thinks it is.

Grrr Arg Grrr

Hi, I have 2 midterms this week so I'm sorry but no more posting until they're done, it's too tempting, too much fun, I should never have discovered the internet it is so distracting. Anyway, wish me luck...

My baby takes its first steps

No no no, no real babies.......

I feel strangely proud of my knee, as if it were detached from my leg and the rest of my body. I pamper it, nuture it, carry it around with me, and I can't help looking down and knee you're looking good. I'm still elated by the fact that I can walk and the cursing that characterized September has been replaced with giddiness....I hope I won't get so giddy that I'll trip. I mean by any other standard I'm just a girl walking around with a limp and a cane....but it's like I have a happy little secret under my pants :)~ So as my new knee takes it's first steps into the world I rejoice, not because I can walk around and life is suddenly so much easier, that all fades with a bad day, . . . I swell with pride at what my knee can do, that's its fixed and better after so long, it's on its way to being a full fledged functioning knee someday, whether it's still attached to my body . . .

The lost sewing machine

I found a better place for the sewing machine on top of a shelf where it can get used if it wants to and left there when I don't have time. So from now until 2009 :)

I might have a possible use for the sewing machine in the immediate future. I want to start up a cooperative artisan's student society at York where people can sell there arts and crafts for tuition money. I can make tuques and scarves (especially ones with big needles) pretty fast and I could do it say on the bus...since I spend so much time there. If I can find other people at York who make crafts they can participate too. I could sell the stuff on campus twice a week for a few hours while I'm studying or after class. It would be the kind of job I could do because I don't have to stand or do any lifting and can have complete control over hours of work and when I feel like it. It's a thought that will need more investigating...

I met a lady when I went to physio in the hospital who makes a living selling crafts, scarves, fleece blankets etc. She goes to craft shows all over the Golden Horseshoe and even her husband quit his job to come work with her. I thought, I can do that, I can make that no problem...after all, I don't come from a crafty family for nothing.

Ahh Office

I had to write my first paper since moving into the new office...and now I can really appreciate it for the torture chamber that it is. I really like it though, especially now that I can sit comfortably...all I need now is a big comfy chair to fall asleep in or maybe that's not such a good idea. The lamp that mom got me from Ikea is perfect, it makes the room seem really cozy and bright without being too bright. Thanks mom. I put the other reading lamp next to the couch, it fits perfectly.

Happy Thanksgiving anyone? Hey everyone, hope your day is going well and your spending time with family or friends or both. I'll be having Swiss Chalet with Myriam later on tonight. Hopefully I'll have finished my essay...or have started my essay by then. I woke up with a sore throat and the like. I really wish I'd stop leaving things to the last minute.

First try

Hey, I'm starting this up to keep in touch with people close by and far far away. I'm sorry but it's a less proactive way of keeping in touch but at least it's something...
