I finally got around to take pictures of my finished projects!
chosen path (no clever name)Currently, I am working on this.
which now is this big:
I love it. It is currently my favorite shawl (colorwise). I may make mine bigger than in the pattern because it looks like mine will end up smaller. I have more than enough yarn to do a few extra repeats. I can't wait until it's finished! Have you noticed my love of stripes yet?
As for the living situation, the lowlife supposedly has most of his belongings out of his apt already. He said he would be out as of yesterday. Our landlord told us that the lowlife was going to try to get the 30 days extended. I guess you can apply for that? I don't know why he would--maybe so his homeless friends who 'work' at the taco bell could still have a place to crash who knows. When I say 'work', I mean they stand at the end of the drive thru with a cardboard sign. It's great.
I have found a couple of possibilities for professional development opportunities for this summer. I am waiting to hear back from one which will begin June 25th. I applied for a scholarship since they were offering them. I hope I qualify for at least a partial scholarship. Thankfully my school is going to foot the bill for any professional development opportunities we want to do this summer. The other one is free but they are all day and they are an hour's drive away (both ways) from here. Initially, if my school wasn't going to help (or at least pay for some of the pd that starts on the 25th), I was going to just go to the free one. I'm still on the fence.Now as for the chrysalises! Wow. The butterflies emerged and we just barely set them free earlier this week. All 8 emerged.
Here's how they look after about a week:mallow and when I looked at the pictures I realized that stuff was growing like crazy in our backyard! I haven't quite figured out if they prefer the mature leaves or the seedlings.
My sister was in town long enough where if you blinked, you missed her! She says she might come again in August but time will tell.
Okay, off to get cracking on my end of the year narratives. Fun, fun, fun!
