before march is over…

….want to see what we’ve been up to? (Still no knitting to show.)

A Shovels and Rope roadtrip: two hours each way and totally worth it. Happy almost April, friends!

more february.

Catching up here and everywhere in my life right now; thought you might want to see a bit more of our February — or at least the parts I happened to photograph!

An old friend sent me this gorgeous, hand-carved spoon for my birthday. He’s been wearing hats I’ve knit him for close to a decade; I love that I’m going to be stirring things on the stove with his handiwork for years to come.

Um, another one of those amazing breakfast sandwiches. I’m pretty sure I snap a picture of this each time I eat it.

My smoothie matches my pants! It needed to be documented.

Cocktails and oysters. Just because, and also because I’ve got some news to share: this summer, Boh and I are headed West. I’m going to start my dream job in the fall, and I could not be more excited. (I also could not be more tired — balancing my first year of professoring with being on the job market has been exhausting.) I’m grateful every day for the wonderfulness of my students and my colleagues at my current institution. Everyone here has been so supportive of my search for a tenure-track position (I am currently a visiting professor), and even though I am thrilled about where I’m headed, I will be sad to leave this community.

Got stuck in Newark during my interview travels, which means I got an evening with this sweet dog and her owners.

This guy is getting a bit gray in the face. Love him to pieces.

Another professor costume.

Oh, hello, Boh. Why so worried? I keep telling him that we are going to move back to the mountains, but I don’t think he gets it. His response is always something like, “is it dinnertime?”

february?

Hi, friends. I’m still knitting on this striped wedding blanket for dear friends. At this rate, I’m hoping I’ll finish it in time for their second anniversary! The good news is that I think it is going to be gorgeous.┬áThe bad news is that I have no new pictures of it. I do, however, have some pictures of January and February.

I love it when this dog poses on the back of the couch like this.
