Safe and Warm


I am finally through with my hellish bout of exams, and am safely tucked away in the backwoods of rural Ontario to spend Christmas with the family. Its really nice to be here, even though there isn’t much to do. Since being home I have:
1. Cut up a multitude of magazines
2. Decorated two different Christmas
3. Visited the Shetland sheep across the road
4. Heard enough Christmas Carols to make me go absolutely insane

I must go find some errant wool to knit another sweater (like this one I’m wearing) before I die of boredom.

I dont think there is ever a thing as too many Christmas carols, lol!Have a fun and safe Christmas. Maybe to pass the time, you should knit a Weasley Sweater!!

I must agree with you about your feelings towards Christmas Carols! When I go to work it makes X-Mas feel like if it was a 2 month long holiday....

that sweater you knit is amazing!

Mark said...

You look really cute in that picture. :) I can't put my finger on the reason, but it's definitely cute. Anyway, I hope the boredom doesn't last for long. You're creative - you'll find something to pass the time. :)

Oh, it sounds divine, all of it. How nice to be so bored that you could possibly make another sweater. Jealous much? Yup.

Rachel said...

I definitely get sick of the usual christmas music, but I have this awesome christmas mix a friend made last year that has like, David Bowie and other awesome people singing christmas songs. Much better.

today i was in target and walked by this gorgeos display of R O D A R T E dresses, cardigans, and so on. it is so drool-worthy. for some reason, i immediately thought of you and your love for rodarte, so i had to tell you, if you didn't already know like 5 years ago.

Amelia said...

Jen said...

I'm really a fan of your blog. I remember first reading and realizing you went to school near me. I'm in grade eleven and used to attend Moira Secondary School but now go to Bayside. I believe it was around this time last year that I was in Chapters near the mall and I think I saw you... Too much of a wimp to introduce my self.
Anyway, have a merry Christmas!

I LOVE that sweater.

Love Grace.

Becca Jane said...

Am I to understand that you knit that fabulous sweater yourself? Because it's fantastic.


Also, being home for christmas and done of schoolwork = great. I have no desire to return to london.. and would far rather stay on my happy island.. but one more term to graduation = worth it.

Black brouges are my preferred footwear, there masculine edge, and old school cool just takes footwaer to a whole other level(cringe).
Have funtimes at Yuel, deep in the Candian countryside.
