Almost Home

The bike trip is over. Our arses have not yet recovered, so I’m reluctant to sit here for very long. Thusly, I give you point form.
-PEI very beautiful. Seeming yarn shortage.
-PEI has many, many hills. (Actully, I do not believe that one single acre of it is flat. The whole thing is beautiful gently rolling picturesque hills that threaten to rip the muscles from your thighs if you are cycling up them for hours on end.)
-I loved it anyway.
-I am in Cape Breton.
-I went to Baadeck Yarns.
-I am having trouble making my new fleece artist friends fit in the suitcase.
-Kelly is lending me a suitcase. It only has yarn in it now.
-If they pick my suitcase to spot-check at the airport tomorrow, it will probably take me another 72 hours to get home, since I think that is how long they can hold you for “observation” at the institute for mental health.
-I am coming home tomorrow.
-Normal blogging (with pictures) to resume on Tuesday. (Barring the whole mental hospital thing).
-I miss you all.
I’m going to say goodbye to the ocean, watch the stars come out and hope for a little of the Northern lights.

  1. Safe travels, Harlot. Wear the mango tank through security, they’ll be so distracted they’ll never notice the luggage. (Oh, you so know, there’s a terrible pun begging to be used here, but I refrain!)

  2. So glad you had a wonderful vacation, but sure will be glad to have you back. You’ve been missed.

  3. Glad you had a great time! (I’m jealous. I want to go to PEI – but I don’t think I want to bike there)
    And I think I can hold off Harlot withdrawl until Tuesday 🙂

  4. I’ve had a wonderful time reading through all the Harlot archives (as I *just* found your blog a week and a half ago) while you were on your lovely vacation – but I am very glad you’ll be home to resume normal blogging activities!

  5. yarlot, i learned this trick from a friend, mail the purchases home to yourself, makes packing a lot easier 😉

  6. I hope there’s no observation needed and that all your new friends make room for their neighbor in the suitcase. We’ve missed you, too!

  7. Really looking forward to see picts and hear more, It sounds like places I would love to see … but please, for your European readers, couldnt you add in a map to show us where you’ve been? I’m not so familiar with the Canadian geography … IDA

  8. Welcome back; you’ve been missed. I was worried that you’d ridden off one of those steep cliffs into the drink.
    BTW – I watched some Kevin Spacey/Julianne Moore/Judi Dench movie last night (on A&E – The Shipping News) that takes place in Newfoundland. Amazing scenery, but gar! how do people live there?

  9. Samina, you HAVE to read the book. It’s amazing.
    Yay, Harlot, we can’t wait to see the suitcases’ unveiling. And your writing back again.

  10. Hurray for “normal” blogging to resume on Tuesday! A day without Harlot is like a day without sun. And I say we band together and bust the Harlot out of the psych ward, should it come to that.

  11. Woohoo!! You have been missed! So happy to have you back …You are more than welcome to mail all that yarn to me, I’ll keep it very safe for you until you get home. Promise.

  12. Hurray and huzzah! It’s Christmas in August, the sweetest news I’ve heard in … two and a half weeks. Have a safe trip back home. Missed you terribly, but glad you enjoyed yourselves thoroughly.

  13. So glad you all had a great holiday. Sorry it has to end, but with all that yarn to console yourself with there is a *bit* of a silver lining.
    It will be good to have you back.
    liz 🙂

  14. Hey ! – you say “arse” ! For some reason my internal, mental dialogue playback thought it would be ass ?? Glad you had a good time, can’t wait to see the goodies. Enjoy your thighs of tempered steel – you’ll be thankful for those hills next time you see how fab you look in shorts you know ….

  15. Hey Steph! it’s me Dan from the broken down bus. I hope you got home on time and safe. What a day man, I didnt get to my stop until 4:10 only to find out my ride will be over 30 mins late. Oh well I made it home thankfully. Anyways i’m gonna stop or else I’ll start to ramble. E mail me back u got my address. Keep in touch,
    Thankfull to be home, Dan M.

  16. Heather, “arse” is the correct Queens English term for that which you sit on, as used by Brits (and apparently Candians too) everywhere.

  17. Wow…Is your nephew ever handsome! I think you should have way more pictures of him (and your really hot sister).Seriously though, you must be so proud of him. Has he done any modeling?
