Believe it or not, but knitting does go on here ;o) I often don't believe it myself!
My computer is going in for a hard-drive re-imaging, so these might be the last pictures for the week (maybe not... not sure!) I'll be borrowing another computer for work, but it won't have the camera driver on it.
Even more varnishing to do today, and we were just up on our office roof cleaning out gutters and sawing branches. What a week this has been! J has me quizzing him on his Japanese phrases, and I have to dig into the hiragana book -- as I have been avoiding it while trying to get toys ready for the shop.
Last night, something happened that was quite eerie at the time. I was in our duplex's kitchen, chopping potatoes, and started hearing this noise outside, in the shared back entry. We don't currently have neighbors, and there is an outside door that I would have heard open if anyone came from outside.
I stopped chopping. The noise stopped. I started chopping, the noise returned. Willow sat up on her hind-legs in the kitchen chair and 'prarie-dogged,' trying to figure out what was going on. This alerted me that she, too, was hearing the noise. A moment later, 'someone' started turning the doorknob on the other side -- I was scared!
It turned out to be our landlord, who had been painting in the soon-to-be-rented apartment next door, and had heard me chopping. It was quite loud, I do admit! -- a metal knife on a glass plate. He had thought it was someone tapping on the outside entryway door, or maybe even something in the basement. We both scared each other quite well ;o)
