The Spiders won again!!! Our time of 5:53:34 was sufficient and a half hour faster than the 2nd place team. Here's a link to the official results.

The Relay for Life was awesome - the weather was perfect, not overly cold overnight, not the
dewiest we've knit through and experiencing it as a Survivor for the first time was very special. Thank you to all of my supporters - you were all with me in spirit!!!

Amanda has graduated from Grade 8! It was a lovely evening, she was (as if there was any doubt, last minute beauty emergencies notwithstanding) beautiful and her teacher made a wonderful DVD montage of the year for all of the graduates. I am so proud of her and can't believe that my baby is going to be in high school in the fall.

I am almost done the Wollmeise cami for Elise. I love how the straps are rainbow striping!!

I'm going to be at The Needle Emporium on the 9sup>th of July so if you're in the area pop in & say "hey".

Working ... Still, Again

Wow - time has been passing in a blur!!

I've been back at The Mighty Mart of Wal for 2 weeks now & I'm enjoying being back. I missed the people and the routines of it all. I'm really loving being a part of the front-end team; it's a busy hub of the store and the days pass by quickly.

Amanda's grade 8 graduation is coming fast - June 26th!!

I'm looking forward to the Relay for Life next weekend - if you've been waiting to the last minute to sponsor me, we're almost there!!

The toenails are still hanging on but I think that the right one is infected - I'll have to hit up the walk-in clinic tomorrow after work; it's becoming distractingly painful.

Our softball team broke our losing streak with a tie game but we're back to losing again. I'm having a lot of fun though - I've been practicing & I'm hitting better - and I have a feeling that we're going to have a great 2nd half of the season!!

I'm still working on scarves our Relay tent & a project for Elise.

Things are proceeding slowly on the domestic front but they are going forward as such things do.
