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:
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!
Here we're having a 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!
