Blog, I will.

This is Yoda. He's a cheap ploy to grab your attention! (And he's a really cool toy I bought my husband for Christmas.)

Here is a project I'm working on. (And, no, I did not finish my wrist warmers. Yet.)

As you can see, it is a dish cloth. I'm making it for my mom. (She likes the color red for kitchen items.) I'm almost done.

Going with the red theme, I finished the scarf kit I received from Anne last week. (You know, one of those kits that comes with the yarn and needles.) Here it is!

The picture doesn't quite do it justice. It is BRIGHT. And very pretty.

I'm starting classes next week. I'm taking Yoga, Stress Managment and English 102. I am really looking forward to all three classes. Yoga actually starts this Saturday, and I am so psyched. I even bought a DVD of yoga, but...well, Denise Austin is the instructor. I haven't seen the DVD yet, but I'm a little wary. Denise is a little...peppy. Yoga's supposed to be relaxing. We'll see. I'll give my review at another time.

On Saturday I finally volunteered at the Maryland Ensemble Theater for the first time. They made me paint the inside of the theater. :( But it was okay. :) I got to meet some of my idols. (If I never mentioned it before, I've seen two shows at the MET and both times I were blown away by the actor's performances. That's why I decided I want to volunteer there.) Anyhow, I was up to my elbows in green paint. We were preparing the stage for the upcoming performance of "Betty the Yeti." The entire stage is made to look like a wooded area, complete with a giant burlap tree in the center of the room. Hopefully they will have more opportunities for me to volunteer in the future. (As an usher or something.)

Other than that, I haven't done much. I've been exhausted lately, so I've been napping in my free time. (Which is what I feel like doing right now!)

More at another time...

oooo! Love yoga, hate Denise Austin. When she works out she has those crazy "I have had too much plastic surgery and the edge of my forehead is at the base of my neck" eyes; even though I am sure she has had very little.
