Snow Day!

Due to a gazillion inches of snow dropping on NE Ohio, all the schools are closed. Ashland just cancelled its LCCC classes, so no grad school tonight, either! If you had to go out in this today, please be careful.

I'm working on unbloggable knitting (it's unbloggable for now, anyway), so I'm afraid that I don't have anything new to show your right now. Soon, but not now.

It's a good day to make tea, grab my knitting, and catch up on all of the shows on the DVR!

Assignment - A narrative, written in APA format: "describe your understanding of the use and importance of qualitative educational research as it relates to the life and career of a teacher. Include what you expect to gain from this class." Due Wednesday.

Based on the syllabus for this class, I'm not going to have much of a life for the next 12 weeks. :-(

I'm starting to think that zombies are actually grad students who didn't make it out...

It's Official!

The paperwork just came in the mail - Kelson (my 16 year old son) has been accepted into college! Not only did he get accepted by the University of Toledo, but he was accepted into their College of Engineering! He wants to go into Chemical Engineering.

Whew! Now comes the fun part...the never-ending spiral that is Financial Aid. Ugh.

ETA: Kelson is a senior this year, graduating in June with the class of 2009. :-)

The Manly Maze Sweater

The new KnitPicks catalog arrived today, so I can show you this:(This is the better of the three pictures on the website, in my opinion. The rest of the pics are here)

This is the Manly Maze Sweater, from "No Sheep for You," and I used 12 skeins of Swish DK. I really like knitting this sweater -it's a top-down raglan, and a very easy pattern to follow.

Now...surprisingly enough, I have to get back to my knitting!

Look at the Pretty!!

I just got a package from my Secret Pal - she sent me a belated birthday card, and this:an 8 oz braid of 100% Merino from Frabjous Fibers! Wow, this is SOFT! And the colors are absolutely stunning! The second and third pictures are closer to the actual colors. This is very, very squooshy!!Thank You, Secret Pal! It's perfect - I love the colors and the fiber!!

The boys just got home from a band trip to Orlando (they marched in the Citrus Bowl Parade!) and Kelson bought me a coffee mug. Moe immediately tried to commandeer the box
A 15 pound cat does NOT fit into a 7"x7" box, but that's never stopped him before...
