Home at last

I am back from IL - finally! I left yesterday morning at 6 am and got home this morning at 9 am - through traffic, accidents and major thunderstorms. I'm just happy I didn't hit a deer or run off the road.

I'm sorry I've been such a bad participant this time, and I'm sorry I missed posting for quidditch this time. It's not very easy to access the internet at my Mom's, and the last time I checked, quidditch questions weren't up yet, and then the rush to pack up, finish chores for Mom, say goodbyes and go home took all my time.

I'm really sorry if I screwed things up for Gryffindor. I haven't even checked to see who found the snitch. I haven't been a good swapper this time, but I can guarantee that my spoilee will get an excellent package.

at home

I'm at home in Illinois, and I managed to find a really gorgeous yarn shop. I bought lots of goodies, including, just maybe, some for my spoilee. :) I'm unable to access my email, so I am probably missing important HSKS5 information- - if anyone needs to talk to me it is best to message me on Ravelry - Tangwystel.

Friday and Saturday I had to drive to IL (a 14 hour driving time trip) to take care of my mother who had emergency back surgery. I am still undecided about what exactly will be interesting and cool enough to make for my Hufflepuff spoilee. It's really hard to find neat yarns in Hufflepuff colors!!
