Long time no see!

I went back and took a look to see when my last post was and turns out it was June 24. That’s ages ago.

A lot has happened since then. Obviously.

Between June 24 and July 8 I think? I spent a bunch of time preparing for a wilderness trip that Mr. Ink and I took to Idaho. We had 6 days of white water rafting and camping in what was a complete getaway, no cell service to be found at all. We went with a bunch of family and their extended friend group. It was delicious. We regularly talk about how amazing the trip was, the scenery, the activities, and the getting away from it all. Just amazing.

Upon our return, we placed the foster dog we’d had for a couple months in her permanent home and decided to take a small foster break. At least, from fostering in our own home. We did, however, spend a lot of time volunteering for the rescue so that we were still quite involved.

There was the regular day to day life for a bit, in which work was very busy for me, and then our final trip of the year. We headed to new england to go to the wedding of a cousin. Another absolutely delightful trip which we were so glad to be at.

Upon our return from that, I had taken a little extra time off to do some chores (scraping and painting around the windows of the garage) but while some of that got done, I also came home with quite a head cold (not the C word, I did get tested.) so that really threw a wrench into the remaining vacation time. On the other hand, I could just be at home sick instead of trying to also navigate work so that was nice.

That brings us to about now. I really have done no crafting at all. A tiny bit of knitting on airplanes when the opportunity arose but by and large I am not finding myself to have any sort of crafting itch at all. And that’s ok! It may or may not return, and I am learning to be ok with that as well.

Tomorrow-a project pan update.
