Thanks to everyone for their well-wishes and concern about my health!
As you know, I went to visit the doctor a week ago about my sudden vertigo problems. She confirmed that it was most likely just a virus, and fortunately by Tuesday night it had calmed down enough that I was able to sleep in my own bed. I was almost back to normal by the next day, although I didn't drive until late Thursday just to be on the safe side. As is the case with most viruses, I'm still not quite 100%....but I'm getting there!
The real reason why there hasn't been much blogging since then is that the girls had a rather difficult reentry into normal life after almost a week at Grandma and Grandpa's house. It's been two years since I've had to deal with this, and to be honest I had forgotten just how tough it can be. The girls have settled back into their regular routine now, although we have another big adjustment coming up when school starts next week.
In the meantime, there has been a bit of crafting going on around here. I made up another of my tea-towel bags, but gifted it before I was able to take a picture. It was rather pretty, with a yellow liner and periwinkle pockets against black handles. I've also been working rather diligently on samples for several classes I'm going to be teaching over the next couple of months. (More on those later.) One of the two involves miles of garter stitch - which turned out to be a blessing, because that was all I could handle for a while last week because of my virus. A wee case of startitis also hit, and so I cast on for two new projects for myself - both of which I plan on blogging about later today.
However, right now it's in the low 60's outside, and I desperately want to go for a walk with the girls. I can't waste this weather!
