I made an almond bundt cake. Thank you so much Amy!! I will definitely make it again soon.
Emily made her own cake with her boyfriend and it was rich and yummy. The kitchen suffered a bit and I just about swooned when I came home from work, but they cleaned it up mostly. At work we clean everything that is or is not battened down. It's a bit of a shift to come home sometimes.
I spent a quiet afternoon preparing a super secret baby knitting project. Yay. And setting up a reading list of classics. Scott's English class is rather disappointing to me as it is mainly about research papers. I was hoping to vicariously read along. So I'm starting with Bruce Meyer's "The Golden Thread" and a copy of Homer's Odyssey that I've had for ages. I did read the Iliad several years ago. Bruce Meyer also spoke with Michael Enright on CBC about the Five Great Books and I have that on my ipod.
So tonight I go to work with the beginnings of the Fit Well Socks
and my secret project. I have a new episode of Cast On on my ipod and I pray I get my breaks.
I found another present I forgot to give Emily, and I hope to have their supper made before I need to go. Dan is on call and working hard and Em had to go to school on a weekend, so this is not the house of bliss.
Hopefully some comfort food will make them feel they are welcome at home and we can talk about the birthday celebrations.
