For those who may have wondered I'm still alive (which is excellent, if I do say so myself!). Here it is October aka month of dreaded pink marketing crapola (again!) and it seems that I left off saying something about triathlon training (which ended up not happening because my knee just wasn't having it).
Still lots of other things have happened. Awesome grandson was born in August. We had a good growing season at the office/pool garden, including tomatoes that didn't get the blight. I've adopted a vegan diet and don't see myself ever going back to animal foods. It's snowed TWICE in the past week. I've started knitting again. The dogs are well, including Gus, who at thirteen seems to have gotten some of the youthful spring back in his step now that the weather is cool. I am also feeling more energetic, with a little more time to spare than I had over the spring and summer and therefore picking up where I left off.
