Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful winter holiday!

Whatever your faith, this time of year has probably brought you closer (physically or emotionally) to your family. In that spirit, I am sharing a picture of my great-grandmother, my father's mother's mother. Her name was Eliza. We don't know when this picture was taken, but it had to be some time before 1934.

Almost Done!!!

Now that I've finished taking all of my final exams for this fall (whew!), I only have one more semester of law school left. You can't even imagine how happy I am to be so close to finishing!

Old Pic of My Mom and Laura

I just scanned this picture into my computer from an old photograph I had and I thought I would share. I think its cute. I took this picture some time in the early 90s at my Mamaw's house in Louisiana.

Elliot Has Inspired Me

I don't have any time to learn how to knit right now, but I was so jealous of Elliot's cool new hobby that I bought a Knifty Knitter loom set. Have you seen these? Here's what they look like:

You can make hats or pillows... or if you're really advanced then you can even make scarves and blankets, but I don't know that I'll ever get to that point. I'm working on a hat right now. The loom is really easy to use so I don't feel like I'm learning a new skill, the way Elliot has been. He's doing such a great job of learning how to knit, and I'm just twisting yarn around pegs. After 2 1/2 years in law school, I must admit that doing anything besides reading dusty old case books and writing pretend memos to pretend judges is a welcomed change of pace, though. I can't wait until graduation, just so I will have some time to be creative again.

So, if anyone needs a hat, let me know!!!

I have always wanted to learn how to knit so...

I decided to finally give it a try.

proof of concept; so far so good

Yes, the knitting POC is a success and now only more advanced projects can derive from it. I would like to make some slippers as my first project. We shall see if I can finish them in time for Christmas! Though this may turn out to be just another fad of mine at least it has taught me to create something even if so far it is only big enough to be a key chain.
