Vacation & Sock Monkey 101

So I am officially the worst at this blogging business. I am, however, very good at falling off the face of the earth. Actually, I've been living the good life in the California Desert.

My parents live out here and I came to visit and enjoy some of the sunshine and warm weather. I swear, one of these days I'm moving to Southern California. Just for the vitamin D from all that sun. I am in such a better mood out here.

It's not all holidays though. There has been work on done on my thesis (which is one of the main reasons I really suck at this blogging stuff).

and I've been at work on craft project: my first quilt!! Pictures to follow (I haven't really taken any yet).

Not that my entire trip has been spent indoors with books or with crafts:

Sadly, my annual dose of sunshine is about to come to an end: I head home on Wednesday! I'll be happy to see le husband, the cats and all my friends, but I'm going to miss the sun and heat (it was almost 100 degrees fahrenheit today! I don't even understand fahrenheit, but I do know that 100 = damn hot!).

Softening the blow of my return to Nova Scotia springtime (the forecast is rain all week long) is Sock Monkey 101 at Love, Me Boutique. Seriously! I'm excited for this. If you're in Halifax on Saturday, you should totally grab some socks and come down to Love, Me on Birmingham Street - near Woozles bookstore. By the time the workshop is done, you should be able to make your own monkey awesomeness. Check out Love, Me's website for all the details on time/cost/registration (you still have a few more days to register).
