An Adventure!

Not much posting recently because of big news: Little Sister of Mossy is moving cross country and will soon be just half an hour away! Hooray! Between checking out houses for her and getting ready for the class I'm teaching this semester, plus weekly dog class, it's been super busy in the Nest. Plus, I'm making a shawl for that first-ever Ravelry swap, and it's been kicking my tuchus fierce. I can't wait for it to be done, so I'm spending all of the holiday on Monday working on it.

It's been lonely in the nest, so there is much excitement at having a sister and a nephew so close. Holidays and birthdays will be much more fun. In fact, the overwhelming desire to move somewhere new, which has been steadily building, may subside for a while.

So, these photos are for Little Sister.

The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men....

I brought a salmon salad to work yesterday. Baby lettuce, feta cheese, yellow tomatoes, wild caught Alaskan salmon (canned). My boss organized an impromptu ice cream party to celebrate a signed contract. I brought the other half of the salmon salad to work today. There were two birthdays here today; one brought brownies,  the other chocolate cake. Why oh why must the yumminess taunt me?

"Eat me!"
