"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive." (Anais Nin)
Sorry no photo today. And apologies to those of you who have been anxiously awaiting the next installment of my "Encyclopedia of Me." (Ed's calling it the Encyclopedia of Narcicism. haha) It has been one hectic week, with our monthly magazine deadline at work, babysitting, parish council, and packing for a trip to northern Wisconsin and St. Paul, which is where we are now. We're visiting Ed's friend Josh (who has a gorgeous condo renovated from the late 1800s) and also met with our Vietnam adoption agency representative this morning. No news except that they are very close to signing with another province, although it's still not very likely that we will have our child (or even our referral) by the end of the year.
In the past week, I've heard from two unlikely readers of my blog: my sister-in-law, who "confessed" that she reads this to keep up on our family while also enjoying seeing the progress of her daughter's sweater, and a friend from high school I haven't seen or heard from in, exactly 25 years, who nows lives in Colorado. She found my blog not by googling me, but through her love of vintage Pyrex. What a small, small world. Hi, Leighann. I'll reply to your email soon. Just know that it seriously knocked me off my chair. I really don't keep in touch with anyone from high school, though another friend I know found me through my blog, too.
Today I went to the Savers thrift here in St. Paul, so now I know what those of you who have them in your towns are talking about. Wow, was everything organized! But prices were pretty high. Still, I got some sweaters for felting and what I think is wool yarn.
Tomorrow we're off to my youngest cousin's wedding. Will be nice to see family. I"ll post photos next week. And I promise it won't be so long till "M"--I already know what I'm going to write about! Hint.
