The joys of summer.... sewing, visiting with friends, commencement, sewing, long walks in the neighborhood (I love my neighborhood!), slow work days.....
I have gotten a few more blocks done for the quilt. I'm up to 8 1/2 (with the half finished after I post this). I'm guessing I will need about 30 total so I'm almost a third of the way there.
We had commencement yesterday at work. Some of my favorite students have now left the university, off to tackle the world. A number of them leave without jobs, a scary thing for them. I sincerely hope something excellent finds them soon. I didn't end up staying for the whole ceremony because I was quite cold and couldn't hear the speakers. If it was just one of those things, I probably would have stuck it out.
There hasn't been much knitting lately because the last two days I had a large knot in my shoulder. It was making my whole shoulder and part of my arm ache. I think it is finally gone (woohoo!) so perhaps there will be some quality knitting in the near future.
Oh, and I totally forgot.... I went to the aquarium this weekend. I was able to visit with a friend and her 4 year old daughter. The touch exhibits were a big hit, let me tell you! It was a wonderful way to spend Sunday morning. Something about sharks, hippos, seals and penguins gets me every time.
What's making you smile today?
