Happy 100th Post!

Hey Y'all!

Well happy March AND Happy 100th post! This is my 100th posting on this here blog. Yippee! Also, today is the day that I have had Mr. Z for 7 years! So, double yippeee!

Last week was a hell week, but I did get alot done. I am still taking my sock class and have one more class to go! Here is the progress of Le Sock... I have to knit to the end of the toe by Tuesday... I have actually enjoyed this process and can't wait to knit up another pair!

I also have 5 teachers at my school who are all preggers right now, so I have had to put my baby knitting into high gear. This is a set that I started last fall, and now I really need to give it as a gift. I got this pattern from the book One Skein Wonders and it is the Bamboo Baby Kimono. This pattern had a lot of errors and if you want to make this baby sweater, check out the errata site. You will be glad you did! The booties in this set are from the Bernat Organic Cotton Baby Bootie pattern and it is a VERY quick knit. I can make these booties in under an hour.

On Friday, I took a field trip with my munchkins to Brookgreen Gardens. We went for the Gullah festival. Y'all, field trips make me very nervous, because, well, I am afraid that I am going to lose someone's child! However, this was the best field trip I have ever been on. My kids were well behaved, the weather was PERFECT and we all had a great time!

Yesterday, I taught a Digital Storytelling Workshop for the Coastal Area Writing Project at Coastal. It was alot of fun! It makes me really miss my training days. I love teaching teachers about technology and then seeing them integrate what they have learned. It makes me smile!

We are still on Snow Watch 2009 here in these parts. The forecast has changed and it looks like my friends in Cola Town are going to get slammed with about 4 to 5 inches of snow. They do not think that we will get any snow here at the beach because of some high pressure something or other. Oh well. It was nice to think we might get snow!!

I'm off, I have a ton of papers to grade, but I'm not going to. I am going to hang out with the Z-man and take him on a walk. We are in between rain showers and he is about to attack me to go outside. He is doing fine today so keep your fingers crossed.

I hope where ever you are, you get to see some snow!
