Ok I’m not sure how back and please don’t lick me to check on the flavor.  I’ve been playing with the idea of blogging again for a while.  I freaking miss it and I miss all my knitting and blogging peeps! When I surrendered to the overload in January I had my day job, was teaching a class at the university and was prepping to teach some workshops. There just was no spare time.  But all that’s over and I took a new job and I moved to Georgia! Georgia! I’ve been here about 2 months and its seems like a good time to reclaim my life.  I still don’t have a lot of time to knit so I’m not sure how much of that you’ll see.

So what have I been up to?  Let’s see.

The new apartment has super low window sills so Simon can keep watching for invading hordes really easily.

Fretting about Oscar – we had to change his meds again and he goes in for a check up next week to see if the new dosage is working. Cross fingers and toes please.

Chilling at the pool – only in the early morning or late evening I’m far too pale for most of the day.

Checking out local attractions – Butterfly gardens! hurray endless photo possibilities

Speaking of photos – I got a new camera! I finally made the leap to an SLR. I’ve signed up for classes at the university but wont start till September. In the meantime I’ll probably be shooting mostly in auto mode.
