Cherry Blossoms (but mostly cute animals)

There's more knitting - but it's a sea of orange stockinette, so really not too interesting. I'm also finally finishing up a long-languishing FO to wear to a wedding next weekend, but that's black silk - and also impossible to photograph. Ah well... luckily there are a few photogenic animals willing to shoulder the burden of entertaining the blog-audience!

Here's what happens when I try to fold laundry on my bed. So helpful!

And here's Barney, S' dog from Minnesota, who came to visit. So cute! And would you believe that he's 14 years old? He did a great job of keeping up with Abby while she ran around.

On Saturday, we took S' parents, my parents, and the 2 dogs to see the Cherry Blossoms - they were spectacular, as usual!

Abby liked being told she was cute - she was getting tummy rubs from a group of Japanese tourists, and when we tried to get her to come with us, she refused to move. S had to carry her away - not that I can blame her! It must have been nice to get tummy rubs from 3 cute Japanese kids.

She also had some fun running through the softball fields - thickets and trees are fun, but sometimes you just need to run full speed across a field!

Of course, all of that running made her a little sleepy...

I'm in my last 2 weeks of classes, and I'm really unmotivated. It's terrible - but I have so much I'm planning for - finals, graduation, wedding, S moving in, my roomie moving out, the bar... it's hard to focus on these last few classes. I can't believe that law school is almost over! This weekend Erin and I are participating in a "Dye Day" at Springwater, and then next weekend I'm missing the last day of classes to attend a wedding in California. And then studying and finals - I'm tired already!

Maybe I'll go take a nap with Abby. She'd like that.
