So glad to be home home home.
Here is a little something that I finished up last week before I took off:
I have made 3 of these, and have gotten nothing but rave reviews. This one will be on it's way to her new owner sometime next week.
Last weekend was beautiful in Phoeniz, AZ and perfect for a wedding. Hubby's sister got married and it couldn't have been a sweeter afternoon. The words and the people were all beautiful. Congrats you two! We love you and hope you are having a ball on your honeymoon.
I failed to take my camera with me to the ceremony- things got a little hectic and we had to rush to get over to the party.
I did get a picture of our new friend how ever...
isn't he/she sweet? ack! The people at the hotel tried to tell me that it wasn't a roach... um okay.
And a nice shot of my man at the rehersal dinner...
On Sunday I was off to Redlands, CA for a weeks worth of training. I was dreading the whole thing, but in the end I walked away feeling pretty good about the knowledge I had prior and all the new knowledge I have now- excellent instructors. Plus, I was in the GIS motherland- where GIS all started- such a dork it hurts. But really the ESRI headquarters were very nice and it was kinda special in a nerdy/geographery way.
I did get some knitting done, but after looking at the ball of yarn sitting next to me I have decided that I don't have enough yardage to finish a second sock- I am okay with it all since I did get a good lesson in cabeling- my first attempt. I will have to go out and buy the specified yarn in the pattern... I am using the sock pattern from the Debbie Bliss Home book.
I could hardly wait for class to be over on Friday- we changed our flight to an earlier time and I was home by 6pm. I barely got in the door before I headed to the hospital where I got to meet my new niece. I am over the top in love with her. She is beautiful- I don't think I will be posting any pictures as it is up to the parents to do so... but maybe I will sneak in a few hand or foot pictures just because I can't resist.
I made a few meals yesterday to bring over to the new parents so that they wouldn't have to cook- always nice- and got to visit with them again at home this time instead of at the hospital. Baby and mom are doing well and dad cracked me up while I watched him wrestle with the portable crib assembly. Sassy the dog is just not sure about it all but has decided to take up a place nice and close to the new girl in the house.
Plain and simple, babies really are amazing.
and now, what you all have been waiting for...
I scanned in the photobooth shots from last week.
Here is one just to tide you over-
late but still fun.
Also, I just entered this photo
to JPG Mag. If you like it, give me a vote~
Oh, and I should urge you to make another vote for this lovely lady and her very cool photography an d inspiration, thanks Les~
