Glory, hallelujah! We have achieved internet! I went approximately 9 days, four hours without any kind of communication with the outside world. Please God, never again. It may have been the cold, dry air that I'm totally not used to anymore, but I choose to believe it was the lack of internet that has been causing this all over body itching. Hopefully it will go away now that I have unlimited access to all the LOLcats and porn a person could ever hope to consume. (Oh, pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease! I'm not kidding about the itching part.)
We've only met a couple of the neighbors so far. Next door we have two sisters, somewhere in their 60s I'd guess. There are raspberry bushes at the back of our property lines, and they brought us a jar of their homemade raspberry preserves. This stuff is good. As of breakfast this morning, the preserves are already gone. I'm hoping if we return their glass jar, they'll share again next year. Either that or Mom's going to have to take up making and canning preserves again, because this was way better than what you get at the store.
Last week I went to visit my new LYS. (Local Yarn Store. Not that the store is new, although I think it might be new-ish. More that I'm new to the local.) It's small but serviceable. But the best part is that they're friendly. The shop cat, George, came over to make friends before I'd had a chance to more than glance at my first shelf. (That was a bit bittersweet, because George looks a lot like my best friend's cat did about 10 years ago. Nico-kitty is getting up there, and his plumage is much less plumy these days. Plus they are a thousand miles away now, so not much chance to stop by and see them.) They have knit ins on Friday nights, so I'll probably go this week and check it out. Goodness knows I have plenty of knitting to do.
There's probably other stuff I meant to tell you, but it's late and I'm high on internet. G'night, all!
