Been Workin', Been Studyin', Been Knittin'--And Some Big News

All of the above.

While our census has been low, I'm working on a couple of projects that keep me next to crazy.

This weekend I completed a Certificate Program in Event Planning at Virginia Tech. It was a 60-hour class over 4 Fridays/Saturdays in April and May. It was a lot of work, a lot of traveling, and a lot of fun. I met some amazing people, and got a really good view of what is involved in putting together meetings, conferences and other special events. And I got to spend some time with The Daughter- the most special of events to me.

Knitting-wise, my camera is angry with me, so no pics, but one linen hand towel is finished and another is about halfway there. My other active project is a top-down raglan roll-neck sweater in Arucania Nature Cotton in sage green (two very similar but different colors that look variegated as I'm alternating rows). Nice, mindless knitting. I'm calling it "My Summer Camp Sweater."

Yes, NurseLaura is going to Girl Scout Camp for about 5 weeks this summer. What excitement! I'll be living at camp in the mountains, and I'm really looking forward to it.

The ever-supportive Husband is being ever-supportive.

A really positive aspect is that I don't have to do the commute-- just walk up a hill.

Ohmygosh, that's awesome! I've often thought I would love to go back to GS camp now. My guess is that the steep trails aren't as steep as I thought they were 20 years ago. :) Have fun!!
