Quicky Update still writing papers, sewing like a madman for the craft fair this weekend, went thrifting yesterday and got 3 sweaters, and a cute little jar for $3.28 (no photos at this time and one sweater has already been turned into a hat/glove set), the second highest up admin on campus calls me "hat lady" because she found out yesterday that I make my own hats (she obviously does not read the university newspaper) but she thinks I'm cool, so it's ok, I'm really jazzed about my oral interp final...we're doing about an hour's worth of holiday pieces readers theatre style, I'm still addicted to Dr. Quinn...but the rest of the videos were removed :( so now I've seen all of the ones on youTube, I'm hoping to start doing Flashback Fridays again during the break, and I think I'm going to be able to come home three days early for Christmas Break! My teacher is acting like the final that is scheduled for next Friday will be something easy and can be turned in sooner.

Last weekend when I was home we painted, made peanut brittle, and started decorating the tree and the house. I have photos of all of that...just not up yet. I do have a few, so I will give you a little preview.

Here we were testing the lights on the wreath and Stanley happened to walk up then. He was quite intrigued by the lights.

Mom's newly repainted shelf thingy (I don't remember what it's called). The paint was a mistint and cost only $1 for a whole gallon and it is coca-cola green so mom loves it! We are putting coke things on it and Santas and snowmen for the holidays. The red apron hanging on the side is one my mom bought from Mary Ann; it looks really cute there :)

While I was watching TV last Saturday I saw something out of the corner of my eye and thought it was one of the cats. I turned around and saw this. The dumb thing sat there forever...long enough for me to go get my camera and take three or four photos. Then we ran it off. I had never realized before just how ugly possums are, especially their tails.

Everyday I walk over the catwalk to get to class and I see this tree. It's really pretty right now with the leaves changing color. I've been wanting to get some pics of it, but kept forgetting, so yesterday I got up there and took this photo and some others in the 30 mph winds.

More photos and other stuff coming soon. If I don't get Flashback Friday up tomorrow then someone please remind me :)
