ah what a beautiful day in the neighborhood. sunny. +18 degrees. gotta love vancouver on days like that. to top it off i had the day to sip coffee, wander and knit. and it was amazing how me, sitting in a comfy chair at starbucks drew women into conversation. of the nicest kind. i'm not kidding. threee different women talked to me about knitting, travelling, grandchildren. it was great! anyway, my nephew's sleeves are almost done. yay! i'm staying with my sister-in-law while i'm working in the city and so i walked to granville island, grabbed some veggies and soon gilmore girls are on. a pretty perfect day.

and i AM feeling very anxious lately....
