Thursday, October 27, 2005


Nope, we didn't die on the road to College Staion, we made it safe and sound on Sunday and have been working like mad ever since, out the door at 7:30 and never back before 9. Oddly, my cell phone doesn't get reception at the hotel either, (How weird!) so no one be upset that I've been MIA. I'm pooped. But, I have spray data!

Off towards Las Cruces in the am.

Good night for now!

When Dad and I passed through here six years ago, I never thought I would be here again! But here I am in Texarkana. So far journey west #2 is going well. We have covered nearly 1500 miles in 3 days without incident...Well expect for Dr. Miller actually eating a Big Ugly and giving me horrible flashbacks to my Penn Stated days that is. One more day onto College Station and we bust out the lidar again.

my swift is here!

I'm 27 and going grey! But my wonderful hubby bought be a swift so he doesn't have to hold all my yarn while I wind it. It's beautiful and I'm going to wind away!

Another pair of socks finished

I haven't been up to date on my posting but I've been working on my socks for the crochetville sock swap and I realized I never posted the pic of these that I finished a couple of weeks ago:

stitch markers!

They're all here! Sorry for the bad pics, my camera was misbehaving today:




I love them all and many are already in use. Thanks everyone!

random thought for the day

why are all musical orphan's red-headed?

Anne of Greene Gables
Pippi Longstocking

Does the red hair somehow make them prone to orphaning?
I think we need a study...

the corn is down

FINALLY. Third times the charm apparently. The corn is chopped and I'm done with my connecticut field work. There was a breif moment of fear when some type of bolt on the tractor sheared off, but Bill was amazing and fixed it right up. I still think the corn is cursed and quite honestly never ever want to watch any scary movie with corn fields in it again. But it's done!!!!!
