#1- I got some live bamboo for my fish tank. I love it so much I'm thinking of pulling all the artificial plants and buying more bamboo! What do you think?
#2, 3, &4- My precious Martina
What's happening - This past weekend my hubby and I went to Auburn. My in-laws gave me a gift card from "Bass pro shop" (for those of you who don't know - it's like Cabela's) I bought a pair of real cool capris. Seriously, like these are the best. They are so thin they are almost weightless and they are waterproof! How cool is that? I thought they would be great for summer.
I still have some money left on the card so I thought I would go back in a couple weeks and get a top. We also went to Petco and I bought that awesome bamboo for the fish tank! I just love it. We also got cat food and kitty litter (the necessities). We ate dinner at an Italian restaurant called Aviccoli's in Waterloo. It was great! They give you so much food we both had enough left for dinner the next night. On they way home we stopped at a friends house to visit. I had not seen her new kitties yet. What cuties!
Only two more weeks of school!!!!! Then I am off for the summer. I love my children but I am also looking forward to not having them for a while! They are all coming back next year. I am not really surprised, they all seem to love it here.
Knitting - Ahhh! I can't stop! I already have two projects started and I just started another! My friend Pat gave me some real nice cotton yarn from Turkey (her son and daughter-in-law) live there) it is beautiful yarn and so soft! So you see why I just couldn't wait to start using it. I am making a pair of ankle socks. I will show pictures next week.
Books I have read - Since I am at the half way point I went off my states list and started reading a book my husband gave me called "Adirondack Cabin Country" by Paul Schaefer. It is kind of a memoir type of thing. It is good but I feel like alot is missing. It could be more descriptive in my oppinion. It is still good and interesting though. Like I did not find out that he was married and had 4 children till 3/4 way through. He never mentioned them! I did find out that his wife also wrote a book! So I will look that one up (women describe more! LOL).
Contests - Tina is having a giveaway at "A Circle of Books", she is giving away a copy of "Stand the Storm" by Breena Clark. The book sounds good!
Bookroom Reviews is giving away a copy of "Confessions of a Shopaholic" on DVD!!!!! Yes, you read it right, go there right now and enter! Hurry!
Top 5 - first names of your best friends (weird! 4 out of 5 start with "A")
