Cute Stuff

I've had a pretty good week apart from having a nasty cold. Fortunately, I didn't have any work booked for 6 days in a row, so I got to stay home and surf the interwebs and knit and blow my nose a lot.

I'm currently knitting a pattern called tulip, which will be a little cardigan for my goddaughter. Since this picture I've managed to finish one of the sleeves. It feels good to work on something so colourful right around easter. Although maybe I should have been working on something a bit more sombre on Good Friday?

I have volunteered to do interviews for the first crop of prospective veterinary students at the University of Calgary's new vet school. I had my training session on Wednesday. Let's hope the spelling of the word "veterinary" in the parking meters gets corrected before they graduate in four years.


Mike's parents stopped in Calgary for a night on their way to vacation in Costa Rica. His brother came up from Lethbridge to see them, and my brother and his wife & kids also happened to be in Calgary this weekend. It was awesome.

Mike and I babysat my nephew James today and he was an angel. It helps that he was mesmerized by watching Treehouse for a couple of hours. He even managed to share space with our grouchy old cat with no altercations.

This is a picture of him polishing off a 100 calorie pack of fudge shop cookies. I figure that there can't be too much sugar if there's only 100 calories, and he had already eaten some cheese at that point. He wasn't nearly as grumpy as this picture makes him look.

His little sister Rebekah has started smiling and is EXTREMELY cute.

The only sad part about this week is that one of the greatest veterinary technicians I've ever worked with is moving back to Ontario. I'm going to miss her so much.

What a great cardigan. I'm sorry you're not feeling well, but I have to admit that I am always glad to hear that knitting is a perk to being sick.

I hope you get better soon.

I love the cardigan too. I thought it was a vest!
