You've probably noticed that I didn't start out the knitting blog post with a picture of knitting. There will be plenty of knitting coming in the next couple of months, but for a while I'm also going to focus on my trip to Aus as well...my little way of keeping in touch.
On the homefront, my sister just sent me a couple of great pics...
My Pepe was the Grand Marshall for the Firemen's Parade yesterday in my hometown. That's him looking all dapper in his uniform with my sister Beth on the left and my Aunt Ann Marie on the right. Hurray Pepe! (ps...Pepe is a shortened version of the French name for Grandfather...it's pronountced Peh-Pay)
The second pic is of my little sister. She just recently became an audiologist...so for her birthday (October 3) I got her a sweatshirt that says "Instant Audiologist, just add coffee". It had her name written all over it (no, you don't have to zoom in, it doesn't literally have her name on it...but it fits her to a tee... er sweatshirt hehe). Sorry about the wordplay.
Coming soon...pics of the first few weeks of the trip...a very important FO (for all you non-knitters, that means the sweater is done!)...and spiders...hey after all Halloween is coming soon, right?
wonderful = surprises. parades. and audiologists. what did you say?
