The end of term.

Oh crap do I hate the end of term. School is hard and busy all the time, but at the end of term life falls away, and is completely taken over by reading, and writing papers.
So, of course, to prepare for this, I've gone home to Toronto for the last three (!) weekends!
Last weekend, it was American Thanksgiving. I dicked around, didn't do any schoolwork, and worked at the Sheep on Saturday and Sunday. I missed working at the Sheep! I bought yummy yarn, and got to spend time with fantastic people!

The weekend before, I went home for my mother's surprise 50th birthday party. She didn't know I was in town for the weekend, so the party truly was a surprise!
I knit her a blanket which I haven't taken photos of yet! so more on that later. But, I also did all the baking for the party, I made cookies, and this awesome cake:
I made a cake!!!!!
It was my first time making a cake with fondant icing, and I think I did a pretty damn good job! It tasted yummy, and got rave reviews from the family too!

The weekend before, I went home too, and my Mom and I went to the Royal Winter Fair, as we do every year. We eat alot, watch the fiber demos, have a beer (or two) and go to the cheese tastings. It was fun!
Beer at the horse ring.

And I'm hanging out with a sheep!

Back to paper writing hell now. This is all over on the 11th - 11 more days, then I get to go back to Toronto for almost a month! woot!
