Linking up with Cindy for Really Random Thursday. For more fun, random posts, visit Cindy's blog.
I don't have much for you today. Sorry. Life has been pretty busy around here. The second week of school is almost worse than the first. The first is busy with getting organized and getting the students all situated with their registration....lots of advising and forms to sign. The second starts to get busy with the business of the semester (everyone sort of leaves you alone on this stuff during the first week of classes!).
So, let's hit it.....
Here is a video my mom sent me. I couldn't get it to load directly into my post, so you'll have to click the link. If you want a little pick-me-up today, click it. You will smile. Guarantee it. And you'll feel happy. Let me know what you are back. I'll wait.....
Well, what did you think? I enjoyed it enough to go to his website and purchase the song. It was only $1.00. And I like supporting people who are doing cool, creative work like this.
I hope it made you smile and feel happy, like it did for me.
Look at how much he's grown! Sweet Pea named him Spidey. He is a very, very good cat. Sweet Pea did a good job helping Rosa raise him up. He has been handled so much since he was a baby, he is just as sweet as can be. We really, really like him. (I hate my hair in this photo! Too long, needs color. I have since had a hair cut and color! LOL)
I'm modeling a scarf I made (doesn't really go with my t-shirt, but I wanted to get photos taken). It's called the Koigu Ruffle Scarf by Churchmouse.
I made it because I saw my mom making one, and I just loved it. As it turns out, I she was making it for me (but she didn't tell me that), and she gave it to me for Christmas last year. I wore it to a meeting one day, and took this photo of it with my bracelet to show my mom how nicely it went with my bracelet. Sorry I don't have a better photo of the scarf for you.
I like the one my mom gave me better than the one I made. I think the color suits me better. Maybe I'll have to gift the other to someone.....
I love the pattern for this scarf, by the way. If you are looking for a fun project, this is a good one. You knit along the length of the scarf, so there are LOTS of stitches across. But not too many rows! And it sure ruffles nicely! Super easy, too. It gets a big thumbs up from me.
We had a faculty meeting yesterday. It was really good to see all my faculty colleagues again. I am so lucky to have a wonderful department of people to work with. It's also really great to be hanging out with my students again. They have so much energy, it's contagious. But to be honest, I'm all ready for some of this. How long until Christmas break? :-)
Like I said, it's pretty lean this week. Too busy to take many photos or even to find time to write. If I can, I'll have a book review for you tomorrow. And a giveaway! Some c'mon back y'all!
Until next time,
