Finished my first semester at Wayne with a 3.67.  Not too shabby for my first semester back in school in over 20 years!  Working on my second full-time semester right now.  If I can keep it up I will be a librarian by next August.  Yay!

I haven't been knitting much lately.  I can't knit and read at the same time, and since I have to read for school, my poor knitting just sits forlornly adn stares at me from the basket beside my chair.  Sometimes I grad a sock and knit a few rounds, but that's about it.

I have plans though.  My nephew is getting married in March and I've got to make an afghan.  I think I'll crochet it,  because it's faster and uses less yarn.  My yarn budget has been slashed.  That whole grad school thing takes a lot of cash!  I've been surfing ravely looking for ideas, but nothing has struck me yet.  I want something that is a couple of colors but won't involve weaving in a million (or 500) ends.  And crochet is not my forte so it can't be too complicated.  No fancy cables.

My daughter took my camera to Washington D.C. and I haven't seen it since she came back.  I'm almost afraid to go on an all out search for it.  It was old and not super nice but I can't afford another one right now.  On the plus side, my phone has a camera and I figured out that I can share pictures with Facebook and then get them to wherever I want them on the internet.  I think I might be able to share a profile picture on this blog!  Someday soon.

Library School!

I did it! I got into library school and I started last Monday. I've got three classes, two online and one "live" class. It's only been a week but I am not overwhelmed yet, which is a good thing, right?

I'm working on school stuff so knitting has fell by the wayside. Two crochet blankets sit right next to my chair looking at me and telling me I should work on them. I will eventually. I know where my camera is and it's charged so I will take pictures of them too.

But today it's all white and snowy outside, I don't have to work and nothing is due for school until Tuesday and most of that is done and ready to turn in. So I think I might curl up with a blanket and some pleasure reading. I've got The Descendants, The Book Thief (which I already read, but my new book club is reading it this month, so I need a refresher) and Rules of Civility. Decisions, decisions.
