Here's the SO's "March comes in like a lion" artwork from cooking class (we do art projects as well as cook in that class, yay). Cute, eh? He loves making a mess with craft glue (and then complaining, in some surprise, that his hands are all sticky - one of these days I hope he'll make the connection between the two).
I've been busy finishing up my taxes - not much else going on here right now, although I'm itching to do a little beading. Maybe a quick project tonight... Hope all is well with you.

I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
