Kerwyn left. I got a kiss & a hug then he picked up his bags and left. He's halfway around the world in China for the next couple of weeks. So my loss is your gain - I will be a better blogger so that Kerwyn can stay up on what we're up to.
Kyle said that Ms. Bolsby told him that he & Ryan will be getting around 80% for their geography project.
Amanda got 10/10 on her spelling ... again. She thinks that she got the bonus word right too! I think I'm tired of perfect. No, I'm just tired. Perfect is, well, perfect!!
I have started going for acupuncture treatments. The last couple of migraines have required multiple doses of Zomig and I have too much to do to be debilitated by mind-numbing pain and waiting for relief that is not forthcoming. After 2 treatments I do feel some relief from the constant stress-induced pain in my neck & jaw, so I am optimistic for the migraine-relief potential. Here I am posing as the human pin cushion (he only uses 6 needles altogether, so it's not so bad).
Cheeky Monkey has used up another life. I've lost count of how many he has left - anyone else been paying attention? I came home and found this:
And then he had the nerve to sniff at it like he'd never seen it before and look at me as if to say, "It's not mine - I'm sure I don't know how it got all around here!" Tell it to someone who doesn't have kids cat -
I'm wise to the lies. Uh-huh.
Amanda has made the following shish-ka-bob for Kerwyn. She is, however, quite concerned that it will not be quite fresh 14 days from now and has offered to eat it for him and tell him about how good it was. I have not been neglecting my knitting . The Tina Shawl is ready for the final edging. It is knit sideways and attached knitways as you go. My 1st Hawaii sock is finally done. I can knit a Tina Shawl but the simple lace pattern on this sock had me making mistakes like a rookie & swearing like a seasoned sailor. But it looks fine, so all's well that ends well. I just have to summon up the motivation to do another one. I think that I will go back to nice plain socks for awhile after this. lol
Jocelyn - You are more than welcome to paint my poppies. (Is it just me or does that sound a little pornographic?) My real ones are starting to go wiltey, but you're more than welcome to work from my pictures. I'll print some for you if you'd like.
