Happy Easter

It is always strange to be in a non christian country on a christian holiday, Easter came and went without to much excitment. That's not true I celebrated with my kids at school and we even had an egg hunt at the park. But aside from that you never would of known that it was Easter, I had pretty low key day and met up with some friends this morning and this afternoon. I also spent some time working on my fair isle hat, sadly I don't think it is going to fit on my head...oh well.

On another note all together there is something you can do this week, on April 1st a blog I read is having a comment-a-thon to raise money for breast cancer research. All you have to do is go to www.californiahammonds.com and leave a comment. People have donated money for the comments and the more comments the more money raised. The author of the blog lost his wife to cancer a year ago and he is doing this in her memory. It's a great cause and it will only take a minute but you have to wait until the 1st for the comment to count in the fundraiser.

Okay I am off to bed, since Easter is not a holiday here there is no long weekend. I do have spring break starting on Friday though, lucky me, I am heading to Hong Kong for 4 days.

I tried to email you - but can't find a link to an email address...so...

Me again -- I arrive Sat and leave Tuesday morning! Argh! There are some lovely knittiny ladies in HK! And I can lead you to a few good yarn shops! :-)
I'm working over here for 3 weeks (I come over a lot.) On Tuesday I head to Taipei! And I leave Friday. Hmph. Looks like we'll just miss each other!

I do have as much fun as possible when I travel - but days are long. Just leaving work now (only 12 hours in today!) :-)
