school daze

So I’ve let another more than two weeks pass by without note here.  I’m sorry!!  I honestly have no idea how many people look forward to reading this, but I promise I’ll try harder.

I have been BUSY in the past while!  School has gotten crazy, job hunting has gotten crazy, and of course..Snake is always crazy.  :o)  I have been doing a bit of knitting, spinning and cooking.  (Not that I have any pictures to show for it..)

Could I appease you with some gratuitous puppy shots?


Alright, so I DID make some delicious peanut butter cookies.  The recipe (yet another one of Martha’s) can be found here.  Instead of the whole fork-top thing, I put a little Reese’s cup in the middle of each cookie.  So tasty.

I am also getting really excited about the Through the Loops Mystery Sock Knitalong!  Kirsten is an awesome blogger/knitter/designer I’ve admired for quite a while, and I LOVE her patterns.  I think I’m ready to break into that beautiful Rio de la Plata the Yarn Cravin’ gals gave me as a going away gift.  Join me?

BLAHg no longer

I realize I’ve been absent for a full two weeks. Puppies are damn demanding! ..and also amazing and hilarious. In case you’re wondering, Snake is doing really well (as are Dave and I). It’s been a real adjusting period, but I can thankfully say that she now sleeps though the night and (mostly) goes potty outside. She’s too smart for me.

So I have done essentially zero knitting for the past two weeks aside from the odd row here and there. I intended to do a bit today but didn’t get around to it. I’d really love to finish at least the awesome socks I’m working on and maybe the scarf too. We’ll see. :o)

On a mostly unrelated note, my friend Kristy is raising money for AIDS awareness! She is having a raffle with REALLY awesome yarny prizes, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the cause. Please donate! You can get more information on her blog here.

I’d also like to point out that I haven’t blogged about food for a really long time. I intend to get my bake on sometime soon. In the meantime..

I ate Spam for dinner. Dave’s out of town, and I avoided disgusting him too much by making it tonight. I know you’re probably disgusted as well. It’s really not bad with eggs, though!

I made a green chile/egg/spam scramble. Alternately..a SPAMble!! Bahahaha. I should be shot for that one..

By the way..NO we don’t have a toaster.
