On the road again.

I am home but packing again. My family is off to the mountains for a mini-holiday. This will be our only holidays this summer, so we need to get the most out of our 3 days.

My trip to Victoria was event-filled. There was a lot of meeting, greeting, eating, and some learning. My boss is kind of a move and shaker in our world, so these things involve trying to keep up with him (I actually don't even try anymore). It was fun, but I was busier than I thought I'd be and therefore got little to no knitting done.

I did manage to sneak off for a bit to Beehive Wool Shop. My friend Stace came with me (she's not a knitter) and she did so with absolutely no issues (maybe we have a future knitter in our midst). I showed her the way of the knitter. The touching and feeling involved in checking out a new spot. And this place was lovely. I didn't get to spend a lot of time there. It was much larger than I expected, but after I found some Handmaiden Swiss Mountain Cashmere & Silk I couldn't really afford to look any further. They had some things I've heard of but never seen in person: lots of Berroco and Cascade. And an entire wall full of Handmaiden and Fleece Artist.

I could not resist the Handmaiden and came away with this:


It is a colorway that is specially dyed for Beehive; you can't find it anywhere else. It is yet to be named, but they think it will be called "Cedar". It is a mix of a silvery green, silver and cream; and possibly the softest thing I have ever felt. I kept it beside my bed in Victoria and kept petting it. I've never done that before but couldn't resist with this feathery soft blend of all things good.

I still am not sure what it will be. Likely a small scarf or something close to my skin (no J., not a thong like you suggested). For now I will enjoy it in it's current state. And know that it will be something fabulous.

Pretty. SO pretty. It would seriously make a great thong.

So what did you bring me, huh?

A special colorway? Fun.
You and Jo and your globetrotting ways are really starting to make me jealous.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are
not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization.
On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update:
Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending
out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings,
You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page
SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.
You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has
a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

I have been broωsing online grеаteг

It's beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
