The Volkie and I are not completely citizens of Massachusetts. I am register to vote here and have my new license. The Volkie is registered to live here and has awesome new plates. Look!

It may have taken all day, but now we are ready to live in our "new" home state.

P.S. First night of the Phonathon!

1. Lovely flowers from Seth for Valentine's Day. Note that there are more flowers than the small vase that I own can fit! We used our stylish curved glasses as vases two and three. Also, Seth got Lily a little catnip plant for the holiday. What a super wonderful guy!

2. I finished Mom's scarf, knit with Rainbow Sherbet from Keegan Lane Yarns. I actually finished it last week but forgot to do a photo shoot. Mom came up to visit today and brought the scarf. We then had a super time bringing the scarf with us on our outings - the scarf was a hit at Webs.

Also awesome (but without a picture) I showed Mom how to use the spinning wheel. She did such a good job! What fun.

3. Eight Grain Chocolate. That's what the sign at Hungry Ghost Bread said, and, well, just look at the picture. Bread... with a ton of chocolate inside of it. Outstanding!

4. My first two ply using the Ladybug! This is made out of a lovely mohair that Missy gave me. I was so excited about this yarn that I even set the twist on it. (Although the latter was expedited by the fact that Seth ran me a bath the night I finished the yarn - how perfect for setting the twist.)

5. Lily. Just because I love her. The kitty is always tremendously awesome.

I am back from three long but exciting days in Boston at the CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) Conference. I was planning on working today, but foul weather has trapped me in my apartment. Plus, I cannot even do a load of laundry because the freezing rain would render everything soaked by the time I got it from the next building over to here.

Good news though. I have pictures of Dad's blanket, which was finished last Saturday. Enjoy!
