I'm a daddy's girl through and through. I adore my dad, and he adores me (ok, and the other four kids, too) right back. My father is one of the most gentle and ethical persons I know, and he has a heart as big as...well, the universe. His favorite gifts are little treats, so this year, it was "straight up" rhubarb pie.
A big, happy thank you to Kirsten of Through the Loops. I discovered her blog through Dye-O-Rama and have enjoyed getting to know her...and when I won a contest for the 100th comment on her blog, she sent me this lovely. Wonderful colors, and the card has a recipe for chocolate cupcakes--yumsters! Kirsten was also gracious enough to post her original Sunkist Cardi pattern--I can't wait to make one for myself.
I'm happy to report that I just finished sending out the last of nearly 200 e-mails for the KSKS participants. I felt badly taking longer than I had promised, but I can sleep well tonight knowing that's done.
Finally, have you heard about Mama-E's Sea Socks 2007 Cruise? It sounds like Noelle is thinking of going, and spending time with her and Mama-E is enough to entice me! I don't have my dissertation defense date yet, and it's bound to be sometime in April, so I can't commit to it. There are rumors of a Fall '07 East Coast cruise, which I will be on if it's a go!
I'm getting off the computer now. I've been attached to it for too long over the last few days and need to finish up some knitting (gasp--did she say knitting?).
