What a beautiful day! I love Spring in Auburn! I have spent a good bit of time on our patio drinking Coronas and reading and knitting, and unfortunatly writing some. But, I did get a paper done for class and the poster for our policy forum done as well. All in all, it has been a productive weekend. We are grilling salmon tonight - yum. Lime-Tequllia salmon - let's hope it is good. Philip is starting the fire. No more fires for Gracie.

I have been so good in resisting starting anything new. I am making myself finish my Peppermint Twist sweater. After a year of starting it, I am going to finish! Check out the progress.

My mom came down this past week to bring me some pants and a coat that she made me. I adore having a mom that can sew. I highly recommend it. She also brought 2 of the dogs - Poco and Moses. Moses thinks that he was maybe a guinea pig in a past life. Lynard is similar in coloring to Moses, so we think that Moses thinks Lynard is a sheltie puppy. It is very cute. He will sit there and stare in their cages.

Your peppermint twist is looking really cute. Don't you love getting packages in the mail?! I love ordering things on the internet just so I can get a package in the mail. I know it's pretty silly. =0)

What a sweet dog! I love collies and shelties. Peppermint Twist is shaping up nicely and since that was a week ago, I bet you have lots more done by now. Looking forward to hearing how the KP sock yarn knits up for you. Happy spring, Gracie!
