Argh! Library Computers!

Greetings from the Lake. I'd love to show you photos of Craft Camp last week, but I'm working on the library computer and it won't let me edit/cut-paste, etc., so all the pix are at the top and not integrated and it looks bad indeed. (It also has lousy shift keys and periodically I go into my e.e. cummings mode.)

So, hang in there for a couple of days and when I'm home on Tuesday (or get to the cyber cafe with my own computer), I'll have pix of that, and later next week other things I've been working on.

And thank you for all the kind and lovely comments about my last post -- Rick's Uncle Gene. He has been as touched by them as I am.

The Gyp and I are having a grand time hanging out, despite weather which is rapidly going downhill. I've been painting and trying to finish some things I started last week. I might get to "Eat, Pray, Love" tonight, but it has had such lousy reviews and I really loved the book, so I'm on the fence. If it stays cold and rainy, I'll be there.

Even the Gypster has been busy with his usual northern activities -- sleeping and hunting. I'm rather hoping that tonight he'll catch the brothers, sisters or -- dare I say it -- mum of the little mousie he presented me with last night.

Tomorrow I'll meet up with Rick and friends for the almost-end-of-the-ride party as he nears completion on his 400-mile ride to the Mackinac Bridge and we'll hang out for a couple days after. Off to the store to buy ingredients for the potluck!

Meanwhile, stop by and enter my drawing on Chopsticks and String for Peter Mayle's book, "Anything Considered." I'll check in with you all next week and start to get back on a regular visiting schedule! Thanks for hanging in while I've been a tad erratic!

I hope you like the movie. There's nothing worse when the book is good but the movie fails to deliver. Painitng sounds good and how's the knitting doing? Take care and I hope Rick enjoyed his ride.

Missed you! I couldn't get through the book! Maybe I should try again?

We're headed out to Lexington on Sunday to spend the holiday on Lake Huron. It will probably be chilly, but I prefer it to all that heat and humidity!

I'm in awe of your husband riding that far on a bike! I lucky to make it 5 miles!

Enjoy the weekend :)

BTW, Eat Pray Love wasn't that bad, really :)

I suspect life at the lake is worth it, but computer roadblocks sure are frustrating. Enjoy you time away from real life!

Enjoy your time. Is it already getting cold there? We are enjoying a small taste of fall temps this weekend even here in the deep South.

Enjoy your time! Let us know if you get to the movies. I never go by reviews. Give Gyp a big hug for me. xo

I am very sorry to read about Rick`s uncle Gene....His wife looks much younger...Is she okay???
It is always wonderful to have a big family,where the members are all in contact and around somebody, who lost a loved person.

I've just found you this morning and have so enjoyed scrolling down through your recent posts. Sorry to hear of your family's loss. You shared some beautiful family photos and thoughts.
I loved seeing a peek in that wonderful antique shop. I could definitely do some shopping there.
Popped over to your Chopsticks and String too. I've added myself as a new follower on both blogs. You may be interested in participating in Food for Thought. It's a book review meme that happens twice a month. You read a book to which you make food connections, then share your food and thoughts about the book. I don't participate each time, but the times I have it has been such fun. There is a link on my sidebar if you are interested.
Glad to have found you! ~ Sarah
