Where did March go?

I can't believe it's been a month since I posted. So much has happened. At the top of the list is "I'm Hired!!!" I start work as a software test coordinator on April 9. I'm so excited. Something new, lots to learn. We celebrated with a Friday Happy Hour in the garage (it was wet outside) with Nathan's hotdogs and Carnegie Cafe's mac & cheese. (Thanks, Jeanne!)

Had a great vacation with friends in Puerto Vallarta. Lots of fun, food and drink along with riding dune buggies. We stayed in El Centro at the north end of the Malecon. Our favorite restaurant was the Happy Lobster. Wish we had a photo of the seafood platters we ate. Carlos took really good care of us with the tequila and the flaming coffees. See the photo album in the sidebar. Here is a sample of the fun we had.....

The photos don't show how dirty and wet we got - but it sure was fun.

I spent a few hours at one of my favorite haunts and favorite LYS, Knitorious, learning about alternative fibers and how they behave or misbehave. I've been knitting eye pillows with Euroflax Linen which I love. The pillows make great gifts. I have one ready to go into the washer and then stuffed. It will be part of a spa basket that a few of us are donating to the SRG Trivia Night Silent Auction.

The Cardinals' Opening Day was on Sunday and bunch of us got together at the Lucas School House to kick 0ff the season. They have a gigantic screen in the Lounge and we made ourselves at home with Fred Bird and the players masks we used during the Worlds Series. But, the mojo wasn't there and the Cards lost.

My mom sent me a package of sock yarn and needles she got for me while she was in Germany. WOW!! Now to get some of the WIPs finished so I can work on some socks with this. The orange is destined for birthday socks for mom - thank goodness I have until September!

Until next time....
