R.A.O.K. it to me!

As I stated in my previous post, my uncle had passed away last Friday night. His funeral was held on Thursday morning. After spending the day with family and friends, I came home to find Minerva Wodd's owl waiting for me with a package.

It definitely brightened up a sad rainy day. Inside was a skein of Regia Cotton sock yarn in a very Weasley inspired color-way. There was also the pattern for The Weasley's Homestead socks.Topping it off were 3 Paint-By-Numbers kits, which I had originally thought were egg coloring kits. It took me a moment before I remembered Hermione B and I chatting about how much we loved Paint-by-Numbers kits!

Many thanks to Minerva for giving a happy ending to the day.

OCC Update

I'm stepping out of the character of Antonio to let you all know what has happened and why you might not see me in the coming week.

On Friday night my father's younger brother suffered a major heart attack, which he did not survive. It's come as a shock to the family as he was in fairly good health. The wake is on Wednesday and the funeral on Thursday, so I can't say for sure how much I will be online in the coming week.

I didn't want to just disappear without a word, so I wanted you all to know what had happened. I may pop in during the week, but once thigns have settled down I am sure I will be back.
