Just re-discovered my old blog! How funny, thought it would have disappeared by now. No followers, just me rambling for me. Took Frank to vet; urninated on floor last two mornings. Hope it's not too expensive!
Studio "opens" for summer classes today.Disney and P3 Combo. No clue what I'm teaching them; 8 classes can do a 4 step "dance".
Knitted on ears part of the Mickey Sock #2 last night.

Schedule is up on the website, take a look, let's hear some feed back. Love it, hate it, change it?
Beach Baby Mini Camp starts this week. It should be quite fun! Need to finish up my planning and to do's for this today. Got the snacks, just have to package. Got the crafts, just have to make sample, etc. Got the beach balls, all blown up! Got the pool! Got the song, need to tweak the choreography since all dancers enrolled are 3 yr olds.

Thur. June 17 - Awesome turns and leaps class at studio. Dinner : sliced sausage, zuchinni, summer squash, carrot, all sautéed, ½ can cheap spag sauce, whole wheat fusilli . I put plate down, phone rang, Sid left. I ate it and it was great!. Watched SYTYCD, since I didn't get to see Wed performances I wasn't too invested in which dancer left, but did enjoy the 4 solo's and the group number!
Frid. June 18 - Lots of errands today! Made easy dinner of grilled burgers, froz corn and sliced strawberries with cool whip. Had planned to make cookies, but....
Sat. June 19 - Went to Prairie Lavender Festival. Not very festivally but really interesting . learned a lot, had a good time with friend Mary H. and Peggy H. Dinner was Pastrami on pumpernickle rolls, toasted in broiler with swiss cheese, fresh asparagus and strawberries on shortcake. Finished Seed Stitch Scarf in evening. Itching to start a new dishcloth, but must work on socks for fair, also need to re-start mom’s scarf. Need to look at my minimal FO pile to see what I can enter for fair and what I might need.
I'm able to knit a little better now, not so painful. I am working on the foot of the 2nd sock, and I'm excited to be able to wear them. Several older pairs could use the toes re-knit, out of white yarn, but I'll find "something".
old enough to know better, mother of 4 (3 deceased), Dance teacher, substitute teacher, poet, obsessive knitter,loves flowers,chocolate, teaching children. More than anything else, I am a teacher...I love sharing my knowledge with others. I work too hard and have to remind myself that it's okay to do "nothing" once in a while.
