It snowed!

I didn’t get pictures today; we had 54 8th graders from Pugetropolis. I was otherwise occupied. But hey, two of the visiting teachers were Don and Everett, TRTs from the summer who worked with us on the curriculum project.

Don owes me dinner for sticking me with all of his middle school football players.

It’s supposed to be the same weather through Thursday, so I’ll try to get snow pictures from Paradise tomorrow.

Update for the Week…

The last half of this week has flown by! Last night, my roommate moved out. Heather was only seasonally here, working for the Natural & Cultural Resources Division. Her last day of work was yesterday, and now she has a week off. Then she’s headed to Yosemite for a 5-month project.

Yosemite is one park that I haven’t been to yet. Yet. Someday I’ll get to see those monoliths.

Meanwhile, I was out hiking the Skyline trail from Paradise with a couple of classes of fourth and fifth graders the past two days. It’s almost nice to sit here in the quiet office for a few minutes! Today will be a short day in the office; tomorrow morning I’m going to a workshop all about the mushrooms and fungi found in the park. It should be interesting; I’m hoping to come home with something yummy to eat, too. 🙂

Next week I have a few programs to give and then next weekend I’m house- and dog-sitting for the sled dog team again. I love those dogs!

It seems like I have very little of any substance to write about lately. I think my mind is in 1000 directions at once and I can’t really focus on any one thing.

But maybe now that I have my apartment all to my quiet self again, I’ll get back to reading and thinking more. 😉

Question…

I have this problem on my work (read: ‘government’) computer. Some of the blogs I follow don’t load properly when I open the site to read them. For instance, MountainMama’s blog rarely opens for me. I get the title bar graphic, and the info boxes on the left column. But the content rarely shows. This happens occasionally to other blogs as well. But it does not happen all of the time! When I’m really lucky, the entire front page of a blog will load and I’ll be able to read to my heart’s content.

Does anyone else have this problem? I bet this is just the silly servers here at the office. Inconsistent problems at random times. Go figure.

New Sweater

So today’s post is not going to be about work. Unless you consider knitting as work. Which I don’t. 😉
I’m working on a new cabled raglan pullover for myself. I got the yarn a year ago, and I’ve been charting out various cables in Excel since. I never could find one that I was 100% happy with, but I think this is turning out ok. I’m hoping that the 5 balls of yarn will be enough for a hood. I’d love to make this into a hoodie. Maybe I’ll get this done in time for the fall winter.

What do you think? I know the pictures are small, but does the cable set work?
