Let's see, what other projects/things have I talked about in the past?
- skiing: haven't done much lately, either downhill or x-country. I might go x-country skiing today though.
- family history: well, that took a back seat to school. Recently though, my dad sent me a list of funny sayings from my great-grandmother that he found in my great-aunt's house. I found one on there that I have picked up over the years "It's raining hard enough to make a lightered knot float". I guess a lightered knot was a heavy dense piece of wood they would use to start fires back in the day. If it was raining enough to make one float, it was raining really hard.
- mosaic tables: I have been working on the center mosaics. I picked out tiles, created a design, and glued the tiles to the board. In fact, I am almost finished with one, which I should be able to show off next week. That means one of my tables will be completely finished!
- school: Well after some red tape/drama surrounding classes being cancelled and me starting my final project, things are progressing again. I am working on a project in conjunction with work that has to do with the way we forecast relative humidity. The good thing is, my boss and a lot of my coworkers are on board. Of course, this doesn't remove the concern that the data is going to be crap, that my advisor won't like it, etc. But I guess that's what comes with the territory when you get your Master's.
Which leaves me to my final thing: a picture for today. I wanted to take a picture of the little birds that come to my bird feeder. They are mostly redpolls, although this picture only shows one with a really red head. They used to come twice a day. Now, though, my next door neighbor got a new bird feeder that they like, so they pretty much hang around all day. I have mixed emotions about it. It's cool to see the birds on her feeder, but there's a lot of crap (literally) all over my car. Anyway, here are some winter birds for you:
Well, off to enjoy some hot tea and an episode of Martha Stewart (oh, how the mighty have fallen)!
