Taking a break

This roving was a Christmas gift from my Mom, started it today for fun, taking a break from the blue sweater. The second sleeve is about 1/3 of the way done, have been working on it, just needed a renewal today.

Here it is on the bobbin, don't have any idea what to make out of this yarn. Might need some more for socks, or mittens. It is Joyce's wool, dyed then sent out to a mill, probably Zeilinger's, they do the striped rovings I believe.

Had a job interview Friday at the place where I messed up the online application, waiting to hear from them. They will let me know, was there an hour and a half and answered many difficult questions. Some of them not very well, but it was a good experience overall.

Just a little bit of catching up

This is what I have been doing for the past 8 weeks. It has been 28 years since I have been in a classroom, and am really enjoying it! Having a little trouble remembering medical terms, but will just have to work harder... Monday is the final exam, clinical skills test, and graduating! After that, we can take the state board test.

In the meantime, I have turned in applications, and am hoping to hear from somebody soon. One place I went to handed me an application and when I turned it back in was told that they don't take paper applications anymore. Would have been nice to know that earlier. After going to the web site and making an account, the site was having technical difficulties and sent my form in incomplete. They sent a confirmation email, then another email stating that it was incomplete and to resend. Okay. Wonder if I'll get that job?

Here is the sweater coat, still working on it. Wish you could feel how warm and heavy it is. Probably will get lots of wear out of it with our long cold winters.

Mr. Greenjeans, a better picture than the last one! So nice to see green grass again. This will be a fair entry if it's done in time. You might notice a blurry spot in these photos, it is from my grandson playing with the camera. Didn't realize it was there until now, and just wanted to spend a little time blogging tonight then get back to studying so it will have to wait. Matthew's birthday party is Sat., he will be two. Where did the time go?

Bleeding hearts, much bigger this year, and lots more flowers. They are in a mostly shady spot, with poor soil but it seems to like it there...

The primrose are bigger also this year.

One lone pansy that survived the winter and came back.
