Sockwatch 2007

No socks in the mail today. We're leaving tomorrow morning before the mail arrives, so I won't get them for at least another week.

I'm going to be away from mail, internet, computers, phones (besides my parent's spotty cell phone service), and real electricity. There'll be solar power, propane appliances, wood stoves, and outhouses. And likely a fight with my parents about whether there should be batteries in the clocks. (I'm against it... I don't care what time it is, and the ticking over the silence drives me nuts. B likes to know the time so he can listen to the news on the radio.) There'll be loons and squirrels... and hopefully no bears and few mosquitoes.

The only crochet/knitting I'm bringing is one pair of socks (the pair already started) and the pink lace scarf of doom. (Hopefully I'll be able to wrestle that WIP into an FO!) I'm also bringing some birch bark canoe cut-outs that need to be sewn into canoes. (Strike two year-old WIPs off the list!)

Well, I need to finish packing and water my plants. Later!

Have a terrific time-I would like a place like that to visit.

Can you take a digital clock up there that doesn't tick? Sounds like a decent compromise...

I've keep meaning to look for one (or three or four... B is clock obsessed!), but forget whenever I'm shopping. It needs to be battery operated (no real electricity), and have numbers large enough that he can see them from a distance. Plus not glow at night... I don't need that either! ;)
