I haven’t exactly been keeping up with the ABC Along. I kind of got stuck on J and couldn’t seem to get beyond that. I couldn’t think of anything for L either and the K was just too obvious. So, we will just jump ahead to M.

M is for a Mountain of Books:


These are my textbooks for fall semester. And yes, you are reading correctly! I get to train a dog for college credit!!! I am taking Psychology 311 – Principles of Learning. As part of the section on operant conditioning, we get to train a dog and write a paper on it – hence dog training books are included in my curriculum. How cool is that? I have to admit that both of our dogs are pretty well obedience trained, so I may need to borrow a dog. I have several friends who have volunteered their pooches!

You will also notice books on statistics. I have geared up my courage and decided I need to take this class. But you gotta love a book called “Statistics for the Terrified”. It is peppered with Gary Larson cartoons, but also with things like this:


So I guess it’s a wash.

On the knitting front, I have finished the first garment to Izzy’s Christmas ensemble (another hint!). Here are some pretty posies all in a row:


Because of the mountain of books, I need to get as much done as possible before school starts. I have also made progress on Green Gables:


I was able to try it on when I finished the armhole increases and decided I needed to add at least another inch for the armhole depth. I haven’t tried it on since, so I hope the inch was enough. Now I’m down to miles and miles of stockinette, so I hope I don’t get bogged down.

It’s a nice night for knitting – raining and my hubby is at work, so I’m off to settle down with Law and Order!

  1. Oh my, it looks like you’re going to be a busy busy lady this fall.

    I love math and have several years of calculus under my belt, but hated statistics. For me it wasn’t pure and logical like the rest of mathematics.

    On a more positive note, it was much easier to learn the mechanics of working the statistic problems than other branches of higher math.

    Now many of the statistical functions are available on inexpensive calculators – unlike when I took statistics and we had to wrestle with all that statistical calculating.
