Gold Star
Published On: July 1, 2014

I have come to the conclusion that I deserve a gold star sticker for successful adult-ing over the last two weeks.  In that time I put a few hundred books in the mail, went to Detroit for a show, came home, put a few hundred more books in the mail, went to Toronto for another show, came home, and put the very last of the preorder books in the mail.  Somewhere in there I actually managed to do a few loads of laundry, cook a few meals, do a few loads of dishes, and take enough showers not to raise any eyebrows at the grocery store.

Apparently I didn’t quite manage to blog as much as I might like, but these things happen.

As for the Toronto trip, I did that most scandalous of things.  I left the big camera home and only brought the little camera, and even then I more or less left the camera alone while we were there.  Shocking I know.  Every once in a while it has to be done though.  We’ll have to settle for just one picture of the concert (the always fabulous Jukebox the Ghost…they’ve got a new song from their upcoming album on their site and you should go listen now).

jtg 6-26-14As for other activities while we were there, SOMA chocolate will always be worth your time, and The Boy assures me that the Ontario Spring Water Sake Company is also a good place to drop by if you happen to like sake (which I apparently don’t, but everyone has some flaw).  There was a small yarn indulgence at Romni Wools, a bit of breakfast at Lady Marmalade, and dinner at Indie Alehouse (fantastic).   But there was also a much-needed afternoon nap, because the thought of being all industrious and seeing more things made us both a bit weak in the knees.

At least in theory, things should settle down for the next few weeks.  Who knows, I may even actually knit something.
