Squeaking In Time

Look!  Spinning!

I love my new woolee winder! I love my new woolee winder! I love my new woolee winder!

As busy as I am, I have been squeaking in a little time to do some things I like. I am now teaching full time (I go to an elementary school in the mornings and finish up the day at a high school). That kind of eats into my lesson planning time and my working-on-grad-school-projects time, but I am learning to manage my time better. So I am making it. And Joe starts a new job in a week and a half, only a few blocks from the house! He will be working 8-4 M-F and 9-2 every other Sat., so it is a much nicer schedule than he had before. At his current job, he will have three nights next week where he will have to work until 11:30 pm in Huntsville. And we probably won't see him at all his last weekend there because they are having a big sale.

So my job has changed some, Joe is changing jobs, and Miss Priss started a new school last week. She is going to the school where I teach in the mornings. She really seems to like it. They have already had a field trip to a wildlife center, and they will be learning to bowl in the gym next week, wrapping up the week with a trip to the local bowling alley. We finished this tonight, so it can hang in the hall with all the other kids' paper bodies:

I am hoping to make her the Jane Austen dress from the new Mason-Dixon knitting book before a wedding we are going to in mid-October. I haven't gotten very far yet. I'm only halfway through the ruffle at the bottom of the bodice:

In other things, we are very excited that the guys from Brotherhood 2.0 are going to be in Gadsden in November! We are SO there!

And that's all the news that's fit to blog.
