24 hours of no sleep + airplanes = sick
So, been back for nearly a week now from the Taipei/Tokyo trip. Lots to fill you in here, but I've been under the weather due to a bad cold with jet-lag. It makes it all so much worst. I'm slowly coming back to regular health. There's a lot to be done in terms of sorting photos and sorting scrapbook items for the scrapbook we'll eventually tackle. While I've been putting in some hours in the office, it's been difficult to concentrate and have spent a lot of my time in bed trying to sleep this cold off, or on the sofa doing mindless activities like watching tv and stitching/knitting. Another sock has been completed and another Bent Creek piece started and finished in the past week: Free Betsey, one of the zipper kits. All ready in time for 4th of July. While we don't celebrate it, I do rather like stitching for it since I rather enjoy the red white and blue colours always used. I suppose if enough people design for Bastille Day, I'd enjoy stitching for it too due to similar colour scheme. I couldn't come back from Japan without craft things of course, so I made sure there was a stop at a Tokyo Hands. Home of Clover I managed to get a bunch of nice knitting accessories at a fraction of the price. Here's the loot: I certainly wished we could have done more hunting for yarn and accessories and stitching but had to make do with what we could find without detouring from the tourist schedule. Flour spent the near two weeks at the kennel and came back a little bigger but healthy and happy. We think she had a good time there. The best part is that she managed to have remembered all her training and got back into the normal routine of things like she hadn't left. I'm rather proud of her. Here's her today sleeping in her usual spot by the door: And of course, here's a photo of me in Taipei.
