If you've all gone away, I don't blame you

It's been nearly 2 months since my last post. In that time, I've recovered from the whole chaplaincy, packed, moved, unpacked, and dived right into my new job as pastor.  And now I'm trying to make some friends in the Seattle area.  
On the whole, things are pretty good, although I do have my lonely moments, which is only to be expected when one moves. 

I finished my friend Susie's shawl.  There are great pics from the wedding photographers on my ravelry page.  That wedding was in Canada, on Pender Island in the Gulf Islands.  We stayed at a B&B, run by a British couple, Peter and Tessa. Peter and Tessa were great, and they also had sheep on their land.  What's not to love?

The wedding was so beautiful, and I preached at it. It was a lot of fun.  I even got to eat a butter tart, which was quite tasty. I may move to Canada some day, if only for butter tarts and yarn. It sounds like something Charlotte would do. 

The shawl below is my friend Sarah's wedding shawl. I have big plans to block it this weekend. Her wedding is next weekend. (Not this weekend, next weekend. Does anyone else have quibbles about the "this" and "next" terminology?)

Since finishing the shawl, I've been working on a sock out of the gorgeous Malabrigo sock yarn.  It's coming along, but I don't have a picture. I know, I know.  Just when you think I've changed.

I will share other pictures, though. 
Will and I have been doing a lot of this lately:

The weather has been great for Fall, and we've been out canoeing on Lake Washington.  Twice!
I have a feeling we'll be doing a lot of canoeing next Spring and Summer. I love living here.

I didn't leave you Abby! I usually check in now and then...more now that I have internet at the house. Did you get the package from me?

And I DO have issues with "this" and "next". Let's say it's Saturday and you want to make plans with someone in 6 days. Do you say "this" Friday or "next" Friday? Some people say next and it drives me nuts...ok, maybe not nuts but it should be THIS Friday.
Need Seattle friends? Do you know Nicole and Kevin Kleinmeier? They are friends of Lydia and Kari and they are SUPER fun and live at the bottom of Queen Ann Hill. You and Will would love them and Kevin is big into sailing. My two big sailing adventures have been Will on the Bay and Kevin on the Sound. I'll try to get you two together.
