Just A Little Update

I've been doing a lot and doing nothing all at the same time, or so it seems. I've been doing homework, though I still really can't get in the mood to do it. Last week was a busy one for school. I had to do some reading for children's lit, my regular homework for TESL (though we only had one assignment to hand in instead of two), homework for the writing class for both Tuesday and Thursday, plus a 6 page essay that was also due on Thursday for the writing class. I don't know if I did that right or not...I just did it up the way I would normally do a term paper (don't know if she was looking for it to be done similar to the little one paragraph "essays" we do each week or not). I guess I'll find out tomorrow or Thursday...

I went to a babyshower for my cousin on Friday. That was a lot of fun. She's not due until December 18th. If you'd like to see the cute little ducky hat & socks (plus another pair of baby socks) I made for the baby, you can click over to my knitting blog, Kitten Yarns & Crafts to see them. They went over very well, and everyone thought they were adorable!

On Saturday, our church held a "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?" event. People sign up to either host or be a guest, and then the guests are assigned a host to go to that night. The guests find out early on the day of the event where they are to go to for supper, and the hosts don't find out until the guests show up. The house I went to was a young couple with three small children (ages 4, 2, and 8 months), and they had three guests - me and an "older" couple. The meal was great - well one part I didn't particularly like, but I ate it anyway. It was a cauliflaur (sp) and cheese soup. I don't like cheese and I didn't know what to do. I ate it, and prayed the entire time that I wouldn't gag. Thankfully I didn't. Other than that though, it was great.

Anyway, other than doing homework and knitting, I haven't been doing a whole heck of a lot. I've been feeling really lazy since school started, and I don't want to do anything except knit. Weird, I know. I think I need to start exercising to give me some energy and maybe I'll feel like doing something - like homework. Don't know if I am going through a phase or what, but I'm sure that things will pick up next semester when I am taking at two course I am looking forward to - the second half of TESL, and Post Exhilic Writings (which will be on the books of Chronicles) - yeah, I am a Biblical Studies geek, so sue me! LOL!

Anyway, off to do a bit of nothing before doing a little more homework. Have a Christ filled day!

Hi Shelly,

Just blogging by to catch up with my reading. Looks like I have a lot of catching up to do :)

Been kind of the weather the last month and a half but getting back into the swing of things.

Always enjoy your posts!

Well I'm glad you got through the dinner without being embarassed.

I love cauliflower and cheese soup! I just plain love all kinds of cheese.

Shelley! You are a busy lady!!!!!

Glad to hear life is good, though. And those duckie booties and hat are cute as can be. Your dinner sounds like so much fun. I think it'd be great to do that in Rob's new church so we can meet some more of the folks and get to know them a little better.

HI, Shelley, I haven't visited your blog for awhile. So sorry. I do like the layout and am wondering (since I just switched to betaBlogger and am getting a feel for it) how do you get those boxes around your text in the sidebar, adn how do you pull pictures and icons off the internet into your sidebar?
If you can help, I'd be so thankful!
