Crochet, knitting, astronomy & life in general.

School craziness

I'm sorry that I haven't posted anything in a little while. As you may or may not know, school has begun, and with it all the fun little time-sucks. I'm teaching three tutorials a week for the first-year astronomy course, the first of which were this week. I'm also attempting to finish up my summer research project since my defense is next week, while getting together my grant applications, and attempting to help organize a massive astronomy event, which will take place the weekend after next. For some reason, I also volunteered for two jobs for the students' associate (webmaster and public tour director)... Needless to say, I haven't been avoiding the blog because of a lack of things to talk about.

I haven't been idle on the craft front either. I'm almost done the second boyfriend sock, and I've been working on a second granny square blanket, this time with that fluffy green and white yarn that I just can't seem to get rid of. I've also started my Christmas crafting, but I won't talk too much about that until after the holidays when I can show stuff off. You never know who might be watching and I don't want to ruin the surprise! *Looks around all paranoid-like*

At any rate, I have a camera full of pictures just waiting to be uploaded, and after the craziness has slowed down a bit, I'll write lots and lots of entries and post lots of pictures and everything will be wonderful!

And now a random picture of a spider I took in L-ville when I was visiting a month ago!
