Because She Lives--The Joys of Online Learning

Swishy pants girl showed up yesterday in the first class for my online course. For the first week you meet face-to-face and from then on it's cyberland. I knew there was a reason I could embrace online learning.

Tonight we made a very delicious dinner here at the family headquarters. We bought some breaded red snapper filets with Caribbean seasoning and then I made some risotto primavera to go with it. I adore risotto. This creamy rice never disappoints and I topped it with some sauteed asparagus and yellow squash.

I re-learned how to knit last night thanks to my sis, Miss Julie. I'm starting with something small, a dish cloth. We'll see how that turns out. I haven't worked on it since last night under her supervision, so it could all unravel in front of my eyes very quickly. (Yes, that cheesy pun was intended).

Here's a pic of my progress. Please admire the lovely colors in the yarn as I do:
















In other crafty news, it sounds like I might get some private bowl turning lessons this winter from a buddy of my pops. This would mean that not only could I make rolling pins on the lathe, I could also turn out sets of bowls, which is great because I always admire beautiful wooden bowls in stores.

I'll be praying that everything works out best for you (like it won't even if I don't pray, but I'll still do it cause you rock).

Bex, I am so impressed with your handiwork. We should stitch and bit-- together sometime. Hope to talk to you soon. Still working on the blog thing. I think I might just start a new. I just need to come up with a catchy title....Later.
