I took my mom out to brunch at the Oceanfront today, just like we did last year, so she could enjoy the monster truck show. Yes. My 76 year old mother loves monster trucks.
I had my hair colored back to the original, with a little auburn thrown in. I've been putting highlights in for so long, I had forgotten how dark my hair really is. It was a bit of a shock the first week, but I'm enjoying the look now.
My stepdaughter, Stephanie, has been in Southeast Asia for the past month, and this is one of the pictures she shared. I love her smile! She started in South Korea, then went to Vietnam, Cambodia, and is now in Myanmar. She's keeping a blog of her travels and both her photos and her writing are wonderful.
Last weekend, Steve and I went to the Jefferson Lab Open House. I wasn't particularly interested, since I don't teach science anymore, but it was a great way to get in 10,000 steps. I knit some too. Steve, on the other hand, was entranced. Or enthralled. As you can see.
The majority of what I saw looked like this. There was a surprising amount of aluminum foil to be seen, along with thousands of pounds of magnets.
And a few buildings like this. Please don't ask for any more details.
The high school prom was last night and I went to help out for the first time in my four year tenure there. I loved seeing so many of my students looking so glamorous. I don't feel comfortable posting any of their pictures, but this is one of me and the Latin teacher, a young friend of mine. The venue was great too. I will definitely go again next year.
I've been doing a bit of charity knitting for our knitting group; they are supporting Newborns in Need, and it's fun to do some quick baby knits. Consequently I've been doing some binge watching, and this series was great, despite a little difficulty with the accent and dialect. Lots of knitwear to be seen too!
Despite having some baby yarn in my stash, I bought these three bright beauties today.
Isn't this hat adorable?
This is my latest favorite; posing with her hand knit catnip toy. Because a cat this gorgeous deserves the very best.
