i can't help it, i enjoy these test things

Your Hawaiian Name is:

Malu Nalani

i speak spanish, but love french...

You Should Learn French

C'est super! You appreciate the finer things in life... wine, art, cheese, love affairs.
You are definitely a Parisian at heart. You just need your tongue to catch up...

burlington outing

had a great early day; did the chores, showered and ran for the bus. went to the mall for hair products and looked at shoes. cute or practical? i moved on. then my lovely daughter came by with bella and we went to burlington mall where i treated my self to hello kitty stuff and see's lollies. love the see's. they are sponsoring the king tut tour that is going around the country to different museums. to commemorate king tut they have chocalates boxes embossed with a beautiful gold, turquoise and coral photo of him. knitted several rows on the cherry red, altered halter. have the bottom skirt, right breast side done and am 8 rows into the left breast side. just the back; i think i want to do a corset feel to the back. must start the branching out scarf for knit the classics and find wives & daughters to read. will be finishing & blocking my pink & purple stripe purse this wkend. it feels so good to accomplish so much in one day. also, the opportunity to go from idea to product really motivates me.

love that soft cotton

a one day, one skein project from
free patterns and great ideas. i guess my family will now own one with their
initials. now to finish my halter and purse. must start on a knit-along for knit the classics. plan on doing the branching out scarf from knitty. sooner or later i must start the corset for another knit-along. so happy to be making such great stuff and learning new ideas on playing with fiber. on another note i am so tempted to save to go to costa rica. having finished travel school several years ago i thought that doing an ecotour is real living. must do that before i die. speaking of travel, my daughter and niece are going to miami and the keys in style. last i saw the keys was a million years ago after i graduated from high school. oh, how i'd love to go somewhere! soon, soon... ciao

ahhh, lynden baskets

at the beginning of every summer in the little surrounding towns of ferndale & lynden business owners purchase these huge baskets of aromatic flowers. they hang on every street light fixutre downtown. when you go by the scent is quite seductive.
i think it's a very generous gesture of these business people to make their quaint by-ways a pleasant and pleasurable experinece for visitors to enjoy.

great painters have painted the same object over & over; different lighting, different time of year until they had all these perfect perspectives of one object. hence, another shot of the still life of dahlias.

my grandson and his daddy

we call him "bugga" cuz he loves to go outside looking for bugs and slugs.
when he went to costa rica with his dad he was so excited about the monkeys around grandpa's house. he's a sweet and very intelligent little boy with the vocabulary of a six year old. (he's only 3)

how geeky are you?

You are 14% geek
OK, so maybe you ain't a geek. You do, at least, show a bit of interest in the world around you. Either that, or you have enough of a sense of humor to pick some of the sillier answers on the test. Regardless, you're probably a pretty nifty, well-rounded person who gets along fine with people and can chat with just about anyone without fear of looking stupid or foolish or overly concerned with minutiae. God, I hate you.
