Looking up

This is me hugging my laptop.

It’s back, it’s repaired, i got the message last night and went in today after lunch to pick it up, and now it’s in my laptop bag waiting for me to get it home and boot it up. I can feel my state of mind improving already.

My sister (who has some excellent photos from her UK/Scotland trip up on her blog, if you’re feeling photographically inclined) has scored a house-sitting gig farther away from downtown, which has a nicer kitchen than ours, a deck for sitting, as well as central air (that will be particularly handy when the temp spikes again next week to the mid-30s). I am preparing to pack up a few belongings and join her for a few days, and will bring work and knitting along too.

I’m also dreaming about things to cook and bake. I think perhaps I’ll start with some of these (ooh and some nice olives maybe too), then perhaps these for dessert…And surely what with all this nice fruit around the markets these days, a few daquiris might not go amiss.

By the end of the weekend I might not even care about my knitted mistakes anymore, I’ll be in a pleasant food coma instead.

Happy Friday!


  1. YAY!!! I’m so glad you have your laptop back, safe and sound…aahhhhh.

    Hmmmm, sounds like a good few next days coming up, those links and looking at the food, and you’re just downright naughty, those cupcakes? YUM.

    Have fun!

  2. Yeah! Laptop!!

    I think deck and daquiris sounds like an excellent plan.

  3. YAY! Glad to hear the laptop is back — and that there is air conditioning on the horizon. I have a window unit for my office but I haven’t put it in the window yet. Once it goes in it will be in for the summer and I’d rather not use it when open windows are sufficient (which it can’t be if the AC is in the window.) But we haven’t had bad temps yet.

  4. Hooray for the return of the laptop – sending it a hug through the ether

    Love the plans for the next few days

  5. Glad your laptop nightmare has been resolved!

    I wish I knew what ‘central air’ was. It must be something to do with air-conditioning, an appliance which we have never really needed in the UK.

    And you have the mid-30s, temp-wise in Canada? Uugggghhh.

  6. Congrats on getting your laptop back! Your weekend sounds like a fun one with your sis. Food comas are great! Yarn comas are even better! Have fun!
