Staying warm


Winter doesn't really get all that brutal where we live, which is fine by me. I don't miss the winters of New Hampshire. Nope, not even a little. Our proximity to Mt. Hood means that epic quantities of snow are never more than an hour away, come winter, should we care to find it. But, the past few weeks have been pretty darn chilly, at least by my standards. You know that's a great time for bread baking.

Because people have asked, this focaccia (revisited) now comes complete with recipe. Just click the gooey, warm cheese topping to get the recipe for yourself.

I believe the word I'm looking for is, "omnomnomnom"

Since last I posted around these parts, I completed my first physics class since junior high and managed to maintain my 4.0 (woohoo). Even though it was physics-light (and yes, we did actually cover the physics of light, amongst many other topics) it was, without a doubt, the hardest course I've taken in college. There was much hand wringing as I logged in to check my grade.

Look at all my largely useless transfer credits

It's sometimes a challenge to juggle work, school and knitting, but honestly, I just look out the window and I can't help but smile.

I love this view.

And then there's (come on, you knew it was coming) the puppy contingent. They are really just far too cute for their own good.

I guess that's about all from the house of hair, for now. Till next time, here's hoping your days are filled with carbs and puppies too.


Did I miss a previous post where you mentioned that you were going back to school? What are you studying? Are you just taking classes for fun or are you getting a degree?

They really do look way too cute...

Congratulations! Physics-light or no, a perfect 4.0 is no small feat and should be celebrated. I hope there's some wine (or wool) in that celebration :)

I am actually just stopping by to thank you for your Lake Park hat pattern. I am new to the world of online knitters, but after I made my niece a pair of fingerless gloves, I thought I had enough yarn left for a hat. So I browsed the net, liked your pattern, and gave it a whirl. Turned out I didn't actually have enough yarn, but I figured that out in time to fake it, so it sort of became a beanie or skull cap type thing. I think it looks great and hope she will too--thanks!

I was wondering about what you are studying as well? Whatever it is, a 4.0 ain't easy to get, so congrats!

marnie, you are officially supergirl! congrats on maintaining your 4.0!! way to go, lady!
thanks for the recipe--i want to make some focacchia very soon. hugs to the puppers.

Woohoo! Congrats!

Woo Hoo!


Congratulations on your A! That's hard to do when you're working and making art. I love reading your blog and seeing what other wondrous things you are designing/spinning.
