1. I get antsy - nay, dare I say, grumpy? - when I cannot go online.
2. Not having a computer makes it necessary for me to find other means of occupying my time (not that it's a challenge to find other things, of course... it's just that I am selective about what I do with my time).
3. Some of these other things include playing with my new sock blockers:
SO professional looking - I can't believe I didn't treat myself to sock blockers years ago!
and working on my Sideways Socks, with Kelly : currently on Row 25, and I can finally see how this might one day grow up to be a sock... (note to self: use plain backgrounds to photograph busy yarns);
and taking my sons to Dyment's Farm yesterday in nearby Dundas in the rain and mud and yuck, so we could pick pumpkins and climb through a hay maze and swing off a rope into a huge stack of hay (that is not a royal we - I neither climbed nor swung) and eat caramel apples (I did, however, assist with this);
and playing yet another round of Star Wars Monopoly, and noticing very clearly this time the difference in organizational styles, which truly typifies my sons:
This is how Ben "organizes" his money and property -
This is Tanner's area - need I say more?
So, yes, there's a lot I can do when going online is not an option... but it's nice to be back...
