Well, close enough. It certainly isn’t September any more. Oops. I really should try to update this more than once per quarter, I suppose.
The odd thing is that I have in fact been updating a few things here and there, but they aren’t always immediately visible. The tunes on the Millette family album have been getting the occasional refresh.
I’m also (very slowly) working on a cover of Bob Dylan’s All Along the Watchtower. My brother, David, recorded most of the guitar tracks way back in April of 2009, and I’ve finally got around to mixing them together. It is still in a very unfinished state. I’ve thrown in a half-verse of scratch vocals as well, to get a sense of where it is going. Please don’t laugh too hard at them………….
Chloe the puppy is doing well now — much better than she was in October and early November. First, she got spayed at the end of September and had to be on strict-ish rest for 2 weeks. Then I went away for a week to Vancouver and she stayed at a nearby kennel. While I was away, my brilliant dog thought that eating rocks would be a wonderful idea. So she had some more surgery to remove those, meaning another 2-3 weeks of rest and the lampshade collar and the whole bit.
On a side note, if anyone has an extra $832 that they don’t know what to do with, I know of a certain dog-owning priest who might have an idea. Sigh.
Also, since the rock saga I’ve bought her^H^H^Hmyself a treadmill (55% off at Canadian Tire!). It really helps her^H^H^Hme to release energy, now that it’s generally too cold to go on walks of any reasonable length. Here’s a cool video of that:
Parish life is going pretty well. And Andy and Jane and I are in the process of working on something that should be pretty exciting when we get it set up. And once we figure out a name for it. :-)
Have a great Christmas, everyone! And if you overdo it in the eating department, Chloe has a treadmill!
