Summer School Has Started

(Darth Vader theme)
Well, "The Art of Gardening" sounds like fun--lots of illustration and painting and drawing and stuff... but I have to start a garden! I'm going to kill everything, I just know it. "Art Appreciation" sounds, well, like a class for someone who has NEVER had art. Perhaps I'll have an easy time in that class. We'll see...
I made chocolate chip croissants today! Mm. I can just feel myself getting fatter.
My goal this summer is to start getting up early and walk Roxie. I've been reading Cesar Millan's book, and I'm going to try out his theories: Exercise, Discipline, THEN affection, and NOSE, Eyes, Ears. She will be a dog and not a human yet!
I have a NOSE myself on a new job. One of the veterinarian offices is hiring untrained vet techs...sounds like fun...sounds like wearing scrubs every day...sounds like a NOSE RING! (Sniff, sniff. I miss it.) Well, I'm trying to brace myself for yet another disappointment.
I'm about to head out to the library to see if they have my art book. Maybe I can read it there and save $68.

A Few Pictures of Roxie

Here's my baby, smiling for the camera:

Shirley's Shawl is Finished and Presented

This is the closest that I've come to ACTUALLY getting a gift on time -- it's only a couple of weeks after Mother's Day! This is "Deco" Homespun yarn, knit 12 rows on size 13 needles and then 12 rows on size 7 needles. I also just finished the blanket I made for Brenda. Of course, it was supposed to be a Christmas gift...

First Blog Ever!

Well, here it is, my joining the mass culture late.

I want to have a place to show off my projects! Here I'm going to post the things I knit and the places I go and the things that Roxie does.

A little journal...
