I wasn't actually away. I was just missing from the board. Too many deadlines, not enough time or energy. Now I'm coming up for air. I feel like some giant beast, maybe a whale, surfacing before diving again. We'll be babysitting 2 year old for a week. I'm already expecting to be in bed five minutes after he is. I doubt there will be much in the way of news bulletins or creativeness. Just in case, I'll have yarn and pattern to knit penguins this time instead of zebras.
