At school at the end of a long in-service day, and procrastinating. I really should get home and look over those rough drafts I got last week and didn't touch all weekend.

I had a GREAT time at the KDO in Summerdale, even if I did get to attend only one class. Go ahead. Ask me how to do textured stitches in double knitting!

Sissy has disappeared :-( I may never see her again. :-( I hope she found a good home as winter is coming fast. Who would have guessed that the silly cats would detest the garage and covered porch as much as they did? It's been almost three months now with no sign of her, either in Mifflintown or in Saltillo.

I am so bad! No posts since April? Can I use the excuse of being busy with my exchange student then leaving the country for two weeks?

Finished the yearbook in mid-June (I thought, but that's a long story for another day) and took Marion to Ocracoke on the Outer Banks.

Two weeks at home, then off to Germany! Rostock is a beautiful city in a beautiful part of Germany. I would go there again in a heartbeat if I could find cheap tickiets.

After that, it was on to a week in Paris. I tried staying with Marion, but the situation there was odd (again, more later) so I moved into the city for the final few days.

I will definitely try to get pictures up.

Oy! Here it is, almost the end of the school year before I remember to "blog" again!

New cats. They were living under the front porch with their mom and I found them in mid-October. Can't have a black cat outside in Saltillo for Halloween, so I brought them in. Momma was apparently getting ready to lose them any way, because she took off never to be seen again after I adopted her babies.

Teaching. The year is ending far too rapidly for yearbook deadlines. I'm home sick today, so will find out tomorrow if we even have five pages worth of senior class trip pictures.

Knitting. I've also taught an exchange student to knit! Marion made herself a big chunky scarf after we saw so many people wearing them in New York and fondles yarn quite readily. She still asks me, though, to make her specific things... like iPod socks.

I spent last Saturday at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. What fun! I got to meet Barbara Collins, listmom for DRU, and I behaved myself quite well as far as purchases. Only yarn for two pairs of socks, a circular needle row counter, and some Knit Knack cards. I think I'll go early again, so I have time to see everything before the crowds.
