Thank you all, dear readers, for your expressions of sympathy for my cold. I am feeling somewhat better. I have been taking echinacea pills and I really think they help reduce the symptoms. Unfortunately, I have been rather more generous with the germs than I ought to have been. The Professor is sick.
I have no other exciting news from Willow's Cottage. Oh, wait, yes, I do! Chaplain Dan just called to say that he and The Princess are bringing her sister to visit this weekend! I love company, especially family. We shall pull out the good china, polish the silver, bake some pies, and celebrate!
On the knitting of the Aran sweater front, I worked two more inches, so the total is 8.5 inches finished on the back. This includes tinking a few cables because I did them wrong. Do you know the word 'tinking'? Tink is knit backwards. That means, well, you know what it means.
And so, since I have nothing else to offer you, I will leave you with a beach photo! The birds are pelicans, flying in formation, scanning the Pacific shore for fish to scoop up in their bills.
