Let Spring Begin!!

Finals are in full swing - in fact, I'm taking my first final tomorrow morning. Somehow, I still can't seem to care. I think I'll accept my 3L-apathy and go with it.

Luckily, my current apathy coincides nicely with the arrival of the nice, warm weather. I wasn't actually sure that Spring was EVER going to come, but once I saw this at the local Trader Joe's, I knew that warm weather had to be coming soon....

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Blueberry beer is to spring what pumpkin beer is to fall. (What, you don't measure your seasons through the seasonal beer selection at Trader Joe's?)

I'm also chugging right along on my latest "stupid knitting I can do while discussing practice exam questions" project - a Picovoli made with black yarn that has been marinating in my stash for approximately 4 years. I'm holding it doubled, it's working really well, and I plan to immediately cast on for a green Picovoli when I finish this one to use up the rest of the yarn. (Perhaps, 4 years ago, there was a plan involving both colors. I have no idea what that plan was, nor do I have any other ideas for this yarn...)

Sorry for the crappy photo - the light was fading, and I didn't want to use the flash. Anyway, it's a picture of me trying on a half-sweater over a tshirt, so it's not like you're actually missing anything by not really being able to see it!

In other equally-exciting news, Abby continues to be extremely stressed and tense. We keep trying to figure out ways to help her relax, but nothing seems to work...

And in Cricket's world, crazy things are happening... it's a new litter trial! I was concerned about whether Cricket's old litter brand was biodegradable, so I thought I would try a new brand that definitely was. The verdict? Cricket, apparently, isn't picky, and has thought that the new/old litter mixture is just fine.

And in other Cricket news, she helped me repot all of the herbs... like a good cat, she made sure she was (1) in the middle of whatever task was currently being performed, and (2) completely in the way.
