It is a week for tired eyes, hyperactive music students, testing out my vintage crockpot, running rather behind, and falling in love with Dickens all over again. You?
* * * * *
LivingInTheShadowlands -- thank you, lovely lady.
TheLittleBlueFishy -- :D
Carla and Alastair -- you're so right -- it was super exciting! I mean, how crazy is it that you can just bring home a new family member?! (And of course it wasn't "just" but... you know what I mean).
Andrea -- lol!
Sarah -- I'm glad you like the new colour scheme :). I'm enjoying it, too.
Caitlin -- craftycrackpot -- You nailed it; he really is such a little gentleman!
Elizabeth in Alaska -- it was a special day for sure. And re. winter in July: I still find it hard to grasp that you guys get to have Summer in July. It just seems such an oxymoron! I get the wintry December, perhaps because it's so culturally recognisable, what with Christmas and all. But not summery July!
Asea -- your comments made me so happy!! Yaaay! I've been thinking of you lately and wondering how you're doing. Your "what comes next" sounds like a delightful nerdy dream come true. Amazing! Though I admit your boosktore dream also sounds absolutely incredible, and if that actual dream comes true for you, too, then I will be so happy -- except for the witness protection part, of course.
Meaghan -- I love that you are my friend and put up with my bloggy strangeness (like personifying months and what-have-you).
Samantha R -- family's totally a treasure. And you're right about gaining a lot in spite of losses. Those challenging seasons can reap so much fruit.
Lauren -- we wish you could have been there, too! Oh well, it's not every week you move house. I hope.
