Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Or at least a few days after Thanksgiving. I hope it was delicious and stress free holiday for everyone. It sure was for me. I went down to San Diego to visit my aunt who is a fabulous cook. I ate soo much, I'm still full.
Now, I don't have any turkey or other food pics, but I do want to show off this little one. She is my new cousin (or second cousin, I'm not that technical on that) Sidney. Super cute little chubby baby. Very happy and very easy with people. She is a very recent addition to the family, so she got passed around, and loved it. (Wait til X-mas, more relatives who haven't seen her. I hope her mom is ready to give up her kid for a few days.)

And just to prove she truly is part of the family:She sleeps like a Johnson. Nothing seems to wake her up.

These past few weeks I've also had a friend in town from Belgium. We've had a lot of fun. I went to Catalina for the first time. It is a very nice little island. We drove around in a golfcart most of the day. Never thought that could be so tiring, haha.

And what do you do after such an intense workout?

As for knitting, I haven't gotten that much done. Ok, I haven't gotten any knitting done. But, I have planned a new little cast on project. I wanna use the caron super soft yarn and knit me a grey scarf. I was one of those crazy people on Friday out at the mall (not at the crazy early times) and I got some new fitted tees. A bit longer, so that when I stand in front of the class, i can actually lift my arms without showing off my stomach. But they are a little low cut. Nothing a tank top can't fix as far as decency, but a scarf would add a little warmth. Right? It's a good enough reason to put my million other projects on hold...

Reason to blog

I know I take these long vacations from blogging. And now I am back again, with stuff to rant about, and stuff to show off.
First, let me brag about this lovely skein of yarn. Oh yes, I had a b-day and Michelle gave me somthing to keep me busy, hehe. I just got my invite for ravelry and I was actually all happy to put some stuff in the stash section. Well, it didn't stay 'stash' for long. I cast about 2 minutes after I got it, hihi. I will be proctoring an exam tomorrow, so this new sock will be perfect to keep me busy.

I spoiled Ophie a little. Instead of boxes, she can now lounge on her little cat tower. She likes it. (Although, in the mean time, it's not that interesting to her anymore but my lap seems to be quiet nice) And along with my yarn, Michelle got Ophie a little something too, unintentional I'm guessing, but this bag entertained her for quiet a while.

I must also rant about the first Christmas commercial. Oh yes, it was the night of October 22nd. Now I can't be all mad, because it was Old Navy. I like Old Navy, but 10/22 is just a little too soon. Haven't even passed Halloween yet.

Now if this post seems a little all over the place, it's because I'm trying to finish before I loose the motivation to clean my appartment. I have a friend coming in from Belgium, she knows I'm a slob, but I'm sure she would appreciate room to walk around, hehe. And I went to Target to get this little thingy, maybe put me in an organizing mood. And it worked, whlie driving I was totally motivated and looking forward to it. But I made a littel detour my Michelle's house, where she gave me the above present :) and I got to watch the Maya show. It's my favorite, she was going all out, showing off some new moves. So needless to say, cleaning motivation has gone down a bit... a lot.

Well, we'll see what happens. Gotta post my new yarn on ravelry, hehe.
