A Quick Hello

Summer's been busier than I like....working, summer fun (hiking, canoeing, etc.) and teaching a course at the University on Thursday evenings (remind me NOT to do this again). And of course, the man had a total hip replacement last Friday. He's doing well, getting around on crutches now...has made it up and down all the stairs. Just slow healing...but already the hip itself feels much much better. Saw this momma moose and her two babies on the way home from UAA and had my camera in the car. Thought I'd share a little Alaska moment with you all....these calves appear to be about 5-6 weeks old...so sweet! (Remember you can click on the pictures if you want to see them closeup!)





In the knitting, I finished Cosima while at the hospital with the man...but made the darn neck ribbing too small. Finally ripped that out this morning and restarted it. Should be finished in the next day or so and then I'll post a pic. Well, that's all in a nutshell for today...until next time...knit on!

Heal fast wishes to the man (ordinarily I'd say Get Well, but he's not sick) LOL. Can't wait to see Cosima. Those calves are sooooo cute. What is the plural of moose - meese?? mice??
