Hi!

I am here and alive, if anyone cares.

So what’s new? I have completed 3 weeks of class, i.e. on class down and…ummm… not really sure how many more to go, but definitely more than one. I think I did pretty well in the class and the instructor seemed to agree with me. This class covered basic cooking and knife skills, which my instructor says I have a good grasp of, according to my friend in class. Today we started a new class, intro to baking and pastry, and I think this one will be just as fun.

I bought a bike! It’s shiny! I have only had the chance to go on a couple rides because the weather declined right after I bought it, but I hope to ride it to work on Sundays and get in the occasional week day ride when I can. It’s a Specialized Vienna, which is a cross style bike, and I love it.

I have been knitting. I finished a pair of Nutkin socks in some Cherry Tree Hill Supersock  I received from Cookie A for sample knitting Cauchy for her book Sock Innovation

I also recently started Aquaphobia and totally love how they are turning out.

Now I should get back to typing my notes from class like a responsible student, or maybe I will just read my book.  It is getting good.

Still alive…

…just not motivated to post, I guess. Not much going on other than frustration at not being told my class schedule so I can give it to my managers so they can figure out my schedule. One of them is leaving for vacation in about a week and would like to figure out the schedule for while she is gone.

At least my 30-day review went really well. Apparently I either have met or exceeded all her expectations and we have had no complaints from accounting on any of my work so far. Go me!

Knitting hasn’t really been progressing. I just haven’t been feeling it. We have made some painting progress, and Josh is building me shelves for yarn and my stuffies! I think he just wants the bird army out of the living room. My sprouts are doing quite will,and the zucchini is growing like mad. I probably should have waited until about now to start them, but at least I know the seeds are good!

moving on

Blogger has not been letting me log in from either of our computers or any browser, so I am moving over here. 

Other than fighting with Blogger I have been growing things!  So far I have planted tomatos, peppers, hot peppers, lettuce, and summer squash.  I also have a little herb garden going and am hoping to get a leaf from a jade to grow.  

 Other than that I have been working, knitting, crocheting and occasionally shoveling my driveway.  I promise to update more often now that I can get into my blog again.

Hi! Sorry for the lack of updates, but the whole moving things took my motivation to blog.

We have all our stuff at the house and did the check-out for the apartment today. We are going to get our whole deposit back, which is quite nice. Barely anything is put away yet, but I have a fairly decent idea of where everything is, which helps a bit. Most of the kitchen is put away, but since we are going to be putting up shelving for my baking supplies on one wall along with our pot rack, there is still a lot of stuff just hanging out in odd spots. The bedroom is painted and looks great. I wish I could share a picture, but I can’t seem to locate the cord to transfer them to my compy. The wall color is latte and the ceiling is divine white. There isn’t going to be anymore painting for awhile.

Work is going really well. I love the people, and there is enough variety that I don’t get bored. I have applied for a job in receiving to pick up a few more hours there, so I don’t need to go find another part-time job else where.

Ok, I am going to play Wind Waker now. Wiiiiii!!!!!! (It’s actually a for GameCube)

Grrrr….arrrgh….

The truck is in the shop due to a frozen/locked/stuck caliper on the rear passenger wheel of our rear-wheel driven truck. For those wondering, the caliper is what the brake pads rub against to stop your vehicle. I know this because I watched Josh and his dad change them on my car a few months ago when my car started making grinding noises when I braked or turned.

This means, instead of driving 5 minutes to work today I am taking a 1+ hour bus ride well, actually two different buses with a 15 minute wait between the two buses. I would just walk if the wind chill wasn’t hovering around -20F today. Oh well, at least I will get some knitting or reading time.

There is fresh paint on the walls, some of them anyway, and a new washer a dryer in the laundry room. Washing laundry without quarters is almost fun. We have purchased a couch and will pick it up later this week. We should be able to finish painting the living room on Wednesday and maybe get a start on our bedroom so we can move in our living room and bedroom furniture. I didn’t bring my camera when we were painting but Josh’s mom got some pics, so I will share if she sends them to me.
