I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but you may have noticed I’m having a little trouble focusing on the blog lately.
Here’s a list of what’s new.
1. I finished knitting a sweater. It only took me three years.
2. I started knitting a new sweater.
3. Duncan was very bad last night.
4. I’ve started thinking about my summer vacation.
5. Two women almost came to blows directly outside my office window yesterday. I took pictures.
6. I found a delicious healthy lunch take-out place and now I will buy my lunch there every day for a year because I am a creature of habit. Today I had rosemary-potato pizza.
Okay, enough of that. I’m going to blog about my summer vacation.
I am seriously considering not doing Bluesfest this year. I know what you’re thinking – you’re wondering who will be the unofficial Bluesfest Porta-Potty blogger if I don’t go.
I hate to leave you in the lurch, but I’m not getting any younger, and Bluesfest just about killed me last year. Eleven consecutive days of working during the days, Bluesfest crowds at night and porta-potty blogging at dawn – it was just too much.
So I’m thinking of maybe going to school this summer instead of going to Bluesfest. Haliburton School of the Arts offers a virutal smorgasborg of tempting summer courses; all kinds of them look good to me. Visual arts, music, creative writing, crafts. Each course is a week long, 47 hours, $252. I’d love to go for the whole summer. Realistically, though, I’ll probably stay for two weeks and do two courses. Maybe a week of guitar and a week of watercolour or mixed media or something like that.
I just need to register, rent a room or a campsite or a cottage, find someone to look after Duncan, and figure out how to get to Haliburton. It’s north of Peterborough and according to Google Maps it takes three hours and forty-seven minutes to drive there. But according to Voyageur Bus Lines, it takes the bus 10 hours to get there and 22 hours to get back.
What’s everybody else thinking about doing this summer?
