Quick and dirty- Update

Miss Natalie is 3 years old!


I can’t believe we’ve made it 3 years. To paraphrase my friend Amber, she’s offically lived longer than any of my other pets. Life is good.

On the knitting front, currently working on 9-5 socks with knitpicks riasta. And a knitting project that I can’t share the photos for yet.

We had a fast weekend trip to KC, spent time with Z’s parents and managed to wake up early to go to the River Market farmer’s market downtown KC. It was large, and all of the prices were right.

I bought my first succlent, it’s very pretty.

It managed to survive and here it is at home with his tomato spout brothers.

This is the first time I’ve been successful in getting a seed to properly sprout. My fingers are crossed.

I’ve been practicing for summer. The pools here should be open in the next 3 weeks or so. It’s hard to believe considering we just had a hail storm yesterday. To help usher in summer I’ve found a recipe for southern style sweet tea that has just knocked our socks off. We drank about a gallon in a day and a half. The only thing left is to purchase a swimsuit and we’re ready!

School has been rough for us in many ways. Z wakes up and is gone before 6 every morning, and gets home from work about 8pm. He then tries to do his reading, writing papers and ironing school uniform before he has to go to bed at 10. He is dedicated. I admire the strength and determination that he shows as he rushes headfirst into his studies/work, busting his ass every day and never complaining.I also am lucky that he doesn’t come home and criticize me because Natalie has covered the entire apartment in toys and the dishes aren’t done. He’s a keeper. Plus… Look at him. He’s gorgeous!!!
