St. Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

I was up early (5am) to start my Corned Beef.
This afternoon will be a frenzy of cooking cabbage, potatoes, and soda bread.
I hope everyone is able to enjoy good Irish food like we are.

An Irish Blessing for you today:

May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!

Some of my 'art'!

First of all, I should start off with a warning, I am not an artist; I would consider myself more of a craft person. But this quarter I did take Art in the Elementary School, in which I made a lot of art. So I figured I should show some off. This piece was made from ripped construction paper. And we were suppose to copy an illustration from a book I choose the book Leaf Man by Lois Ehlrt and the illustrations were all made out of leaves.
This was a 3D sculpture that I made out of paper mache. My roommates and I named him Scout and he lives in our room now.
This piece was acryllic paint on canvas. It just might be the best piece of art that I made in the entire class.
Over all I had a blast in the class! and I got a lot of wonderful ideas for my future classroom, and isnt that the point?

Britnee and Caralynn Visit and the end of Winter Quarter.

Thursday one of my very best friends Britnee came to visit. She brought her two month old daughter Caralynn. I loved getting to see them both! I got the day off from school and work on Friday so that we could spend the day together. First we went out to brunch at this fun little cafe, it was delicious and Caralynn slept right through it. After that we went and visited some other friends who work in River Park Square and then took Caralynn to River Front Park and went sliding at the Red Wagon. The adults had a blast, and Caralynn was...well not all that excited about it, but then what two month old would be. That was about as much excitement that Caralynn could take, so they headed back to Olympia. But it wont be long before I get to see them again, in fact I will be heading to Olympia for the first part of Spring Break, in just one week!

While it was a really nice end to the quarter to see Britnee and Caralynn! But I still have one day left in the quarter. I somehow survived my quarter with 21 credits, and I did extremely well in my classes so I am very happy with that. Up next is my official reading practicum and the last few classes before graduation! Yay. So be looking for the graduation announcements in the mail. And as a reminder Graduation is June 11th at 9am in Cheney, WA.

Gold Medal

It is official. Here is my Gold Medal for my participation in the 2010 Knitting Olympics, I also received a pretty nifty certificate, which if I didn't think was too dorky I may just frame & hang it in my library for everyone to see.

On Stephanie Pearl-McPee's website "The Yarn Harlot" (organizer extraordinaire of the Knitting Olympics) she has a list of all 2000 + participants and links to their projects. Its amazing how many talented knitters there are. I may have to work on my knitting skills and in 4 years commit to knitting an adult sweater for the games.
