Only...not nearly enough days left. I am packing, which sucks. BUt I did find a box of my old photo projects from school, which is kinda cool. I was a bit of an ecclectic photographer. I liked doing things...well, not what my teacher expected from a high school student. Anyway, a couple that the teacher understood, and I like...
One of my cat Poncho. He was such a photogenic cat. I miss him. But I did a whole series on him. All of the pics came out great.

I don't remember this woman's name, but I met her at a festival. She was very nice.

We also went to Lake Patagoina. I love that lake, so on Sunday my dad and I went for my last visit for a while. The dam was overflowing, and it was a lot of fun. Pics of that when I find what file my dad put them in.

Yesterday was my last day of work. It was sad. I didn't think I would find it so hard to leave SAAF. George gave me a card that everyone signed. It made me cry. If you ever wonder what kind of a differnece you made in the world, get a going away card. There was barley enough room for people to sign. And one of my costomers came by and gave me a card to. It was a nice last day.

Finished with the decresing on the socks, so hopefully will finish the socks soon. about 8 inches on the foot to go, and 10 days to do it...

So, um...issues...

I turned the heel. Except I turned the heel on both socks. I should have picked up the gusset on the first sock before I turend the heel on the second. So, now I am in a position where I can't really pick up the gusset stitches on either...kinda stuck...any ideas?
