I have come to the conclusion that I deserve a gold star sticker for successful adult-ing over the last two weeks. In that time I put a few hundred books in the mail, went to Detroit for a show, came home, put a few hundred more books in the mail, went to Toronto for another show, came home, and put the very last of the preorder books in the mail. Somewhere in there I actually managed to do a few loads of laundry, cook a few meals, do a few loads of dishes, and take enough showers not to raise any eyebrows at the grocery store.
Apparently I didn’t quite manage to blog as much as I might like, but these things happen.
As for the Toronto trip, I did that most scandalous of things. I left the big camera home and only brought the little camera, and even then I more or less left the camera alone while we were there. Shocking I know. Every once in a while it has to be done though. We’ll have to settle for just one picture of the concert (the always fabulous Jukebox the Ghost…they’ve got a new song from their upcoming album on their site and you should go listen now).
As for other activities while we were there, SOMA chocolate will always be worth your time, and The Boy assures me that the Ontario Spring Water Sake Company is also a good place to drop by if you happen to like sake (which I apparently don’t, but everyone has some flaw). There was a small yarn indulgence at Romni Wools, a bit of breakfast at Lady Marmalade, and dinner at Indie Alehouse (fantastic). But there was also a much-needed afternoon nap, because the thought of being all industrious and seeing more things made us both a bit weak in the knees.
At least in theory, things should settle down for the next few weeks. Who knows, I may even actually knit something.
