Drawing

Yesterday I had extra time in the middle of my class so I doodled this:

I was inspired by Emmy. As a practiced eye can tell, it has 1900’s fenders. I showed it to my dad and he proclaimed it a “Hummer H-2”. Looking at it more closely, I guess I kinda did draw a Hummer, which I think is pretty cool. 🙂 Tell me what you think!

My Scarves

Hey, y’all! Over the past weeks life’s been pretty crazy around here! I’m cramming high school and college together and starting next week I’ll also be studying for my ACT exam (taken in December).

But, in between all that, (and during 🙂 ) I have managed to knit five scarves. After multiple requests from my fellow students I have decided to unveil my masterpieces!! 😀 The’re kinda amateurish but my family loves them.

This first one I gave to my mom. It’s my favorite.

  It’s super soft and fuzzy. I hit the jackpot with the yarn.

This next one is my sister’s (Baroque Myriam). It came out better than the other ones for some reason; the rest all have “stripes” on the ends. 🙂 (more…)

San Diego Vacation

Hey, everyone! I got back Sunday from a week-long vacation in balmy San Diego, a beautiful city with a small town feel. We spent most of it on the beach, something I’d never done before. It was something to see the vast, endless expanse of the ocean for the first time!! We toured La Jolla, Oceanside, Mission and Pacific beaches and downtown. The day before we left we went to Sea World. Absolutely stunning! 😀

We drove ten hours the first day, to the bottom of Utah. After staying overnight, we drove the remaining seven hours through Nevada, Las Vegas and San Bernardino to the outskirts of Escondido, a suburb of San Diego. It wasn’t too hot, which was really nice. I’m not very heat tolerant.

Here are a few pictures of the end of the Grand Canyon and red rocks that we glimpsed as we drove by on the way over:

A Knitted Heart

Hey, folks! Thought I’d post a picture of a heart I knitted. The green stitch at the bottom is just decoration. Let me know what you think!
