Weighing in at the Airport

Today we weighed in at the Comox Airport. Our four totes totalled almost exactly 200 lb. - very little redistribution needed - a tin of tuna and a bag of granola were shifted from one tote to another, and the balsamic vinegar made the cut. But most importantly, all the fabric, scissors, thread and wool passed inspection at Pacific Coastal Airlines, who will fly us from Comox to Vancouver on Monday. Joan looks relieved, don't you think?

In less than a week, we will be shedding our winter clothes for those of summer, hopefully persuading our African sisters to show us how to wrap a kitenge around us, to wear in the equatorial heat. Three such women are pictured in this small wall-hanging I made for my sister-in-law, Mary, for Christmas.
