Beautiful flowers!

Spring is here I hope for good! Though it will be 38 tonight, so I covered my tomatoes, peppers, and herbs just in case! I'm going the container garden route again this year, since a certain someone will not allow a bed garden. Geez! I just wanted a small bed for squash, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, mesclun and spinach! I didn't want the entire yard, just a small spot. But no, I could not have it!

Anyway, they are tucked in for the night. The other flowers are blooming and gorgeous and the pollen is coating everything in sight with it's golden hue of powder. I am here avoiding studying for tomorrow's exam. What a jerk I am :) I should be studying, but I am blabbing instead. I should also be packing for the conference.

I am pushing off nausea as well! Yes, yesterday and today I kept getting waves of dizziness and nausea, but thought nothing of it. Then went to dinner with 2 great gals from work (Ms Paula and Ms Cheri) and ate my weight in pub chips, field peas, cantaloupe and baked chicken. Even got sugar free blueberry pie to go (delish). Then about an hour ago the MAJOR nausea hit and I considered it to be the food, the vast amount of food. No, actually now think it is sinus...really! I just can't get sick now!!! I am talking nausea that makes you want to throw up just so you will feel better :( That is bad.

WEll, hopefully it will pass on it's on and I will feel like a spring flower again. I am watching Stinky Jones Kitten sit in the dark window staring out into the night. I wonder what she looks at when she sits there, it's dark outside!

EXAM woes!

I have exam woes this week, for I have my final Survey of Math exam on Wednesday. Ugh, I dread it. So I haven't been knitting as much as I had planned this weekend. I have been studying evil math. Once Wed evening is over, this class is over!
I also have been planning for a conference on Thursday and Friday. I really don't like conferences much anymore, because you get further behind at home and work while you are gone! That's not fun! I had the land shark (big car) detailed today so it won't be a dirty ride for the gals going with me. Now I need to plan snacks!
Corbin cat has been acting nuts at the back door. He will go and try to catch the knob, like he is going somewhere! He also cries like a little baby, so sad :( Right now he is sleeping in the cat tent, while I am wanting more ice cream! I made a mexican chicken stir fry with couscous for dinner and just finished a cup of ice cream, but I want more!!! Maybe if I knitted a few rounds of my pedicure socks I would feel better...plus a cup of tea.
Then back to studying for Wednesday....

What have I done the past month?

I have been living a busy life, like everyone else. I have been knitting, baking, homework, and never ending housework!!! Here is one of the cakes I made for a friend. She needed a cake that resembled a bottle of glue. It was a chocolate chip fudge cake with rich buttercream icing. Yum!!!

I started knitting a pair of pedicure socks from Knitty and booties that have frustrated me...working on both and finished a shawl. I need to get a picture of that sometime.

Stinky Jones Kitten loves to lay right on the patterns while you work, plus the remote!

How can you be mad at a face like this? Even when you can't see your pattern and lose count of stitches and placement :) She is precious!! But not precious when she starts trying to eat the yarn!

I even had my bellydance recital! Yes, what a night. I will have to post a few pics of that when I can!
