Taking time for Solace
I've been working on Solace more and since the weather cooled off yesterday and it's been raining off and on since yesterday morning, it's a very welcome project to spread over my lap. I'm almost 2/3 of the way through with it (I know that because I bought 12 balls of yarn for it and I'm almost through ball number 8 - sometimes knitting is obvious that way) and it's big enough to keep me warm while I knit on it. As long as the weather stays cool, that will be a good thing.
By the way, I've been trying to help Finn work through some dog behavior issues lately and I've been reading Cesar Millan's books. If you have a dog, I really recommend that you read these. I didn't really grow up with a dog and honestly I have no idea what's going on in his head (especially compared to the way I can read Ramius - I did grow up with cats), and I think that's a big part of what's going on, but I feel like I'm starting to understand him better thanks to these books. I've still got a long way to go, but at least we've started the journey. (Wow, I do sound a bit like a fortune cookie today, don't I?)
