I'm the one on the right with my tummy hanging out. Now I'm really 35. It's one of those weird numbers to me. Other people turn 35, I'm.... I don't know. Ageless, I guess. I don't ever remember thinking about hitting 35. Strange. Thank you Jo for the photo =) So hard to think that was really me... Anyhow, happy birthday to Strauß, Einstein, Billy Crystal and others!
Mostly a quick update on Rykujin. We did the Altoona trip. He's going into Job Corps for Business Administration. He decided it will be a more flexible/useful degree to get than Culinary Arts. He will be leaving either 4/27 or the end of July. It depends upon Job Corps's doctor's recommendation. He's really going though. He will be gone for at least 2 years to Pittsburgh, with only two 2 week breaks (beginning of July and end of December).
Otherwise, I've been sick with a cold off and on for a couple weeks now. I think I get over it, go outside and 'mingle' with the world and BLAM. I end up sick again. I hate (Day, Nite)quil.
I have learned to spin from a top spindle (thank you Aurora! Thank you both for the beautiful gift of silks, too!) I've been able to spin much finer thread with it. I just plied and wound a small ball of aqua wool I made on it. At the moment, I'm knitting myself socks out of red wool I first spun last fall. I'm getting the hang of the sock thing. Yay!!
anyhow, Love you all. **HUG** take care and I'm thinking about you all....
