The dog-days of summer. Humid outside, freezing inside. Neither condition is particularly conducive to knitting. Either my yarn is too hot, or my needles are too cold.
I did have a birthday, and had a lovely time with it. We hosted our first shindig at our place and it worked out really well. We thought our home might be too small, but everyone got along, and Monty didn't get stepped on! It was pretty great.
My friend Emily found this lovely teacup for me. I now have a mug alternative for my peach tea. Pinky up!
Also for my birthday, my love got me an adorable pink iPod shuffle.
This is the best companion player. It's so tiny, and I wear it when I'm running errands on campus and whatnot. I have a larger 60GB photo iPod, too, and I use that a lot too. Music, music, all the time.
This past Sunday, I got to visit with my mom's family at a baby shower held for one of my cousins. Very nice to see them all.
Monty is doing very well in his obedience class. His shyness is getting a lot better since he now seems to recognize the scents and actions of the other pups in his class. What a love he is.
