Spring has Definitely Sprung!

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007
  • It’s 80F/26.6C degrees and sunny as I type this.
  • The daffodils in April’s yard are blooming.
  • Brian rode his bike to work two days in a row.
  • The sorority girls are lying out on blankets in the front yard.
  • I went barefoot for the first time today.
  • The Dairy Queen is open.

It’s spring, and I am counting my blessings!

Elmo Aardvark: Outer Space Detective

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

I was following links, checking out ukulele recording artists. On CDBaby (we love this site for independent musical acts) I found Elmo Aardvark: Outer Space Detective. There are actually several Elmo CDs. It seems there is a whole collection of performers on this disc. I must check it out!

Karla in Kalamazoo, Dallas Plans

karla.jpgLooking Back

I promised in the last post that I’d show you a pic of Karla and me in Kalamazoo as soon as I could get to Brian’s camera. Well, here we are. Can you tell how much fun we were having? Can you see the crowd of people behind us? It was a happy and bustling crowd.

And just in case you can’t see that crowd behind us, here is another photo, taken by Brian. I love the kid in front. There were plenty of kids there.

OK, I guess I need to move beyond the past weekend by now. Actually, I have some pretty serious deadline work to do in the kalamazoocrowd.jpgnext 2-3 weeks, so if you get posts that consist of a link or two, please forgive.

Looking Forward

I am teaching at the Dallas-Ft. Worth Fiber Festival from April 13-15. I have more than a few things to do between now and then.

I’m knitting a very special something for the fashion show on Friday night at the festival, and it’s the sort of thing I can’t get someone else to knit for me. It is a good thing it’s my favorite sort of knitting, but I’m not used to knitting that much every day.

I’m cranking along happily, but it takes two hands to knit… which conflicts with the two hands it takes to type. (Photo shows most of the thirteen yarns/colors I’m using in my fashion show project. Last time I used this many yarns, they were all variations on beige… this is much more enjoyable.)

dallasyarnphase1.jpgI promise a travelogue of my Dallas trip when I return, but things may be more sketchy than usual here at ColorJoy. Yes, I’ll have days when I run off about this or that to blow off steam, but I’ll be staying offline a lot more than usual for a few weeks.
