Not much going on here....

Calm before the craziness??? I finished all of my classes and have gotten all my grades posted. Woohoo!!! Right now, I am studying for the comprehensive exit exam and then I will be officially a graduate! After the test, the job hunt will be on....hoping for a job in Maine, but am willing to relocate for the right job!

My time is already more my own...have a few knitting projects going and am reading some for pleasure! Catching up with some of my early reviewer's books I won.....

Looking forward to Sunday, when William arrives in Maine for Christmas vacation! Hope he doesn't get too cold coming from Atlanta to the frozen Maine. Also, this weekend, Katie and the kids are going to be in town. They will be flying out on Sunday, but we will get to see them before they leave. Yay!

Today is not supposed to get out of the teens. Of course, Katie woke up to -8 up in Rangeley. John has kept the fire going and it is toasty inside. Indy sits right in front of the wood stove, watching the fire. He is so funny.

See, I said not much going on...but I hadn't blogged in a while, so I thought I would update. No pics, though, maybe soon.

Missing Wiggie

Wiggie was my first maine coon (mix) cat after wanting one for many years. His official name was Ludwig, because his original owner had named him Beethovan. At that time, Beethovan was the popular name and movie about a dog. So, I renamed him Ludwig, keeping the theme of his first name.

He disappeared about 6 weeks ago and I miss him. He was a great cat....although, he did have an annoying habit of pulling out his fur and leaving it all around the house. He loved being outside and the times that I would keep him trapped inside, he would be miserable. So, he went back outside, and would come running whenever I would drive up. I am sad that you are gone, Wigler.

This is neon Wiggie...he was looking out the window and I was learning about a picture program!

summer fun

Chesapeake Bay Soft Shell Blue Crabs mmmmm..... Before eating, I had to clean them, something I had never done. But I put on my trusty gloves and dove in. Cleaning involves cutting off the eyes and the mouth, that was fun! Then, you lift each side of the shell on top and clean out the "dead man's fingers" or gills. Last, you pull of the apron in the back and waa, la ready to prepare!

Three dozen, woohoo! The flash really brought out the blue. Aren't they pretty?

Crab close up.

Indiana gets a bath. Gotta keep those fleas down!

Tomatoes, I have tomatoes!!! That is so very exciting. 2 of my 3 tomato plants have little tomatoes, the one in the upside down container does not. It was supposed to be the most productive according to all the hype. Go figure!
