Lucy Ellen Surko Reth

My grandmother, Dad's mother.
1931, high school graduation

Mother's Day 2004

Her time on earth ended today; she would have been 92 years old in a couple of months. Rest in peace, Grandma Lucy. See you again someday.

Couldn't resist

funny pictures of cats with captions

This is not my cat or my yarn or my house. I just found it hysterically funny.

Life has been extraordinarily busy. I am doing a little bit of knitting, have started a few new projects in the past couple of weeks. Quick things like fingerless mitts, hats.

School is busy, busy. We get a day off tomorrow because the septic system has backed up. I was prepared for a substitute tomorrow anyway, as I am going to a workshop all day.

In other news, my favorite soldier is coming home Friday, just for 2 weeks. He'll have to go back before Thanksgiving.

The day after the presidential election, I'm having a hard time getting excited about this vague notion of "change". Actually, I'm kind of concerned about what kind of changes we might see. Change isn't always good. We'll just have to see.

Happy birthday to my sister, the middle child.
