Can't hardly believe that my summer is over!! I don't know what I will do without my morning naps and watching one hour of Will and Grace everyday! I will say that my summer was wonderful. My sister and her kids came for a nice visit. I went to two concerts, Dave Matthews with my dear friend Emily and Jack Johnson with Sarah and Sarah. All in all, not a bad summer. But, now it is time to go back to work! (school) We had staggered enrollment this past week and I get all my babies on Monday! I might be dead by the end of the day tomorrow, so it is good that I am writing this today! They look like a good group, can't wait to get in there and teach them. I am currently working on a quilt for Jordan in my new sewing room. As soon I get the top sewn together, i will post a picture. It looks beautiful so far. More later, if I survive Kindergarten this week!

Had a great morning today. My aunts are here and crazy cousin Marion from colorado! we all went out in the boat and had a blast! They are a hoot! Tomorrow is the Job Fair, I am representing Sand Ridge tomorrow, so that should be fun! I am making headway on the sewing room, slow but steady progress. Hopefully tonight I will hang the two whale hooks and get some tote bags off the floor...... no, i don't have too many tote bags, i have just the right amount. haha! I have started knitting scarves for Christmas for the Kindergarten kiddos! Hopefully this weekend will get out to the theater to see Toy Story 3! Can't wait!! Ya'll have a great day!

It's Easter Sunday and I miss my Granny. When I was a small one we (my sister and cousins) would go to my Granny's for an egg hunt among the azalea bushes and Easter dinner. I haven't really thought about that in years, it's funny how you miss certain things. My Granny passed away in August and I can still hear her voice calling my name and her laugh. I hope I never lose that. I love and miss you Granny! Thanks for teaching me to make fried chicken and to laugh at silly things and to not take things too seriously. We share the same middle name, same blood, same family. I love you! Happy Easter!

ok, so i got a new knitting book for Christmas and there was a pattern in it for leg warmers. Now, I thought this is something I could do! And I am always cold, so sounds perfect for me! I have one leg almost done, took it down to The Salty Sheep to get some advice on length and was told " you should try this stretchy bind off" huh?? Stretchy bindoff... shouldn't i have done a stretch cast on?? I looked on knitty.com and found the pictures and instructions but we all know I can't figure that crap out. I need a video. So, scooted over to youtube and found Cat Bordhi demonstrating the stretchy bind off! Looks super easy and I think I could do it. I haven't tried it yet, but I think it is possible. I guess I need to get cracking. It is supposed to be cold again this weekend, so maybe that will spur me on to finish.
Running is better, knee is better, maybe run that 1/2 afterall.

Ok, so, it has been since April... but things are pretty much the same around here. Made it through the summer without any incidents. Will is going to school @ Coastal and Ward is in High School. Hard to believe that my baby is in High School. He is going this week to get his permit. I am thinking about Christmas presents and making some pillows. Things to do this week.... meetings, run, read book club book, take ward to get permit, go see Where the Wild Things Are, make soup. I will hopefully get around to posting some pictures soon. Just wanted all my "readers" to know I was still alive... hahaha!
