1. Birthing babies.
I had promised my friend Misty that I would be there for birth of her baby. As luck would have it, she went into labor and came in on a day that I was working, so I was able to not just be there, but to be her L&D nurse. Here I am holding baby Nina at ten days of age.
2. Going to the zoo.
We were in San Diego for a few days and I thought I would try to get some shots of the baby panda. She slept the whole time I was there.
Of course I couldn't ignore my favorite flamingos.
3. Planting flowers.
These impatiens were well past their prime, although they probably would have come back if I had pinched them back and fertilized them.
But I had been wanting to put in some cyclamen since before Christmas, which seems to be their season here. I finally got around to it today. It is nice and cool, so hopefully they will last for a few months.
4. Knitting socks.
I love this yarn...
...and the way it knits up into these stripes, so it looks like I have used 5 or 6 different yarns instead of just one.
5. Shopping for cute.
These Mary Engelbreit Chinese take-out containers are from Michaels. Not sure what I am going to do with them, but for $1 each I had to buy one of every pattern.
And here is the new Mary Engelbreit fabric from Moda as seen in the Hancock's of Paducah catalog...tempting!
