It's been a bear of a week - forest fires, heat wave, my Mom came to visit, my landlord came to visit, the water ran out, the dogs have been licking incessantly and developing hot spots, I lost my wallet (and found it again, thank you lovely people in Parksville), I haven't been able to do any work except harvest garlic, blah, blah, etc. etc.
But I'm still here, and hoping for a new week with calm time to stitch. And I have nothing to complain about, really. Prayers for the rest of the world.
