Long time no see!

So, it is finally back to normal around these parts work-wise. After more than 40 hours of overtime, I can happily say that we made our deadline and it was a good thing, too! The cut-off that we were 'afraid' was going to be reached the day that it became available, was reached...twice over. If anyone is interested, you can read a little about it here.

Anyway, in celebration of my deadline being reached and B's first class ending*, we celebrated with some time at our favorite park. We finally made it to the Annie Leibovitz exhibit at the San Diego Museum of Art. In short it was great! Well worth the price of admission and much, much more than what most of us are used to seeing of her work. And while Jenny got a much needed day in the park herself, she wasn't the only doxie in the park that day. In fact, the park was positively swimming with the little critters.

Turns out it was not just a coincidence, it was (and I'm not even kidding with this one) the "Vernal EquiDox" put on by the San Diego Dachshund Club. So we ended up participating without even really knowing...we just missed the official parade! Hee, hee. The thought of it still makes me giggle.

So anyway, knitting wise, lots of overtime meant the only knitting I was capable of was hoodie knitting when I got home (for the 20 minutes I had before going to bed). BUT, that also means the hoodie knitting is done! I am also half done with the seaming and will have a new FO to show you soon! I am really excited about this...I just hope I can still wear it once or twice before the weather gets too hot.


*BTW - this is actually a really big deal. B has gone back to school! I am so proud of him! And now that he is going because HE wants to, he is doing great. His first mid-term got him the highest grade in the class. It has actually got me a little nostalgic for my own college days...which will have ended 10 years ago this June. How did that happen by the way?

Aha...I kept wondering why we kept seeing Dachshunds over and over.

Yay for B being a schoolboy again - good for him! Knowing Jenny as I do, I'm sure she was just fine in a lap, as a spectator at the Vernal Equidox. ;)

Ooh, excitement all over! Congrats on the hoodie - looks great. Congrasts to B on studying hard. And good to hear good things about the Annie Leibowitz exhibit. One of these days . . .
