Fall-ish weather.

It has already snowed a bit, but didn't last very long on the ground. The weather has gotten colder. I do not like this. I guess I shouldn't complain. I lived in this type of weather all 21 years of my life. That doesn't make me like it anymore, though.

I've been knitting coasters lately--well actually since I've been back at school. Usually once I finish one I give it away. Here's a picture of two that I've kept for me. I'm working on making more to have a complete set. I'm also working on a scarf that I'll post once it's done.

My friend Andy Jensen brought me a couple small pumpkins (gourds actually but that's besides the point...) and in spirit of Halloween and fall, here's a not-very-good picture.

Happy Monday!

At the zoo!

A couple weekends ago I went to visit Sean in the Cities. I had a lot of fun. We went to the Como Zoo and Conservatory Saturday afternoon and saw the movie The Informant that night. The movie was funny, I recommend it. Below are a few pictures from the weekend.

Baby giraffe with the male giraffe. So cute!

Female giraffe. I love giraffes!

Sean and I with the giraffes.

Big kitties sleeping. It reminded me of Captain sleeping all afternoon in the sun.

The Sunken Garden at the Como Conservatory. It was beautiful and smelled wonderful in there.

These are just a few of the pictures from that weekend. It was a lot of fun.

I know I haven't posted in a while. I apologize for that. I have good news! Click here to read my first, of hopefully many, columns. Over the weekend I will post pictures of my travels last weekend.
