Friday Five 1. Where were you born? In Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada
2. If you still live there, where would you rather move to? If you don't live there, do you want to move back? Why or why not? I have lived there twice since we moved away when I was 18 months old. I would like to move back to B.C., but I think a nice secluded plot of land on Salt Spring Island would be more my speed now. I would really like to move back to an area that doesn't have 9 months of winter.
3. Where in the world do you feel the safest? I feel pretty safe where I am living now.
4. Do you feel you are well-traveled? Until I moved to Alberta, I would have said yes. However, I haven't done much travelling since then. I suppose I was fortunate that I got to travel so much while I was growing up. Maybe I will get a chance to travel more when the kids have grown up.
5. Where is the most interesting place you've been? The most interesting place that I have ever visited, through my own choice, and that I can remember, is Quebec City. The old city is a fascinating place to see, and it boggled my mind a bit to think that I actually could walk on the battlefield of the battle of the Plains of Abraham. I would love to revisit Quebec City...one of these days.
We have been having too much fun around here. It all started on Monday night when I picked my husband up at the airport. He had gone to Yellowknife on a business trip. While there he had managed to do quite a number on his ankle, and he arrived home in a cast from his knee to his toe. He was told that he had ripped the ligaments off the side of his foot, an had broken some small bones in his foot/ankle region. It wasn't until he went to visit his own doctor that he was diagnosed with just a really bad sprain. He is in a half cast now, and has ceased moaning as much. We are in the midst of a drought/heat wave. We aren't used to temperatures over 25 degrees Celcius. The past 2 weeks have been an average of 30+ degrees. So a cast was really uncomfortable.
I, then, had the misfortune of stepping on our back step and irritating one of the wasps that was building a nest underneath it. I haven't had a wasp bite for a few years, and was reminded just how much they hurt. Fortunately, my foot is back to normal size now, and I can walk normally too. I was really beginning to wonder about this family. :-)
I have had some knitting time though. I finished one mystery sock, started a dishcloth (for an exchange) and a prayer shawl for a former pastor who got married. I have also done some work on my fearless fairisle. Here is the wool for this project:
Here is the swatch I knit. And here is what I have currently done. It isn't stupendous, but I am trying to do this with one colour in each hand, which means I have to learn to knit with my left hand. It is slow going, but I am really enjoying it.
