Aidan learned how to fake a sneeze. It's really funny, because he will put his head back and go ah-ah-choo! and flop his head forward, almost like a real sneeze. Then he will clap his hands and laugh! To him all sneezes are truly funny.
I am looking forward to getting back into the SCA. We are going to have to start over, a lot of my garb and other stuff got damaged or lost in the moves. It will have to wait until after Howard finishes his classes and has a job. But it looks good for next summer, because next month he will be taking his last test and hopefully by then they will have an internship ready for him. After a year or so there he will have experience enough to get a job else where. So, I've decided to start doing some research on a new persona, or maybe just get better documentation for the ones I already have.
I am planning a Celtic Knot baby blanket for Snowanna's little baby boy. He is due the early part of September. Which in Oregon is the beginning of the cold and wet season so I'm hoping it will be useful. It's going to be interesting to do, and a little harder than anything I've ever done before. But I tried the pattern out with some yarn I had around here and I think it's going to be really pretty and not so hard I won't finish it. Now all I have to do is go to the store and get some blue yarn and knitting needles, which means waiting until I can get a car to borrow. Because I feel kind of strange to ask for a ride to Wal-Mart, and making the person who would be nice enough to drive me wait until I get finished shopping.
It's awful not having transportation. I'm am going to have to get a bus schedule and figure out how to get where I want to go. It costs so much to own a car in California. It costs something like $150 a year for tags and registration, plus insurance and making the thing pass smog inspection. Actually I guess the cost for the tags is really dependent on the car, so it's probably less in most cases.
I hate this weather! It's so hot here right now that I can't even walk from one end of my tiny little house to the other without breaking out in a sweat. I am really going to appreciate the weather in Oregon, when we can finally move back! And we are planning to move back in the next couple of years.
