Wednesday's Wanderings...

(I like alliteration, can you tell? :lol:)

Vet visit went well yesterday. Ms. Penny arrived here in an *awful* mess - covered in ticks, severe case of kennel cough, and covered in mange. :sigh: Our vet was more concerned with the ticks and cough than he was with the mange, until last month when her head swelled up and got scabby. So....she's had 4 visits in the last month to get a shot (some sort of Ivermectin clone) to clear it up. As of yesterday, she's "healthy". I won't get excited until she's gone a full month with NO problems, but this is good. And they LOVED her sweater! :lol: (Glances over at the sleeping Dog-zilla on the couch - she loves it; it keeps her warm. I need to figure out the knitting machine so I can crank out a few more.)

I've been going thru my Wheelock's Latin links - I have ALL the flashcards downloaded, games/quizzes bookmarked, and YouTubes loaded up, so we're set. For the moment. If we lose 'net connection (hey, it can happen - best to be prepared!), we'll still be OK - we won't have access to the videos, but I have mp3s downloaded. Not as nice, maybe, but still do-able.

Plugging away on Hebrew. So far, we've all got "A" averages. Not surprising, since I made everybody start over from the beginning. I had made it to Level 2, as had Himself, so this is review for us; Herself had made it almost to Level 2. It's too soon to tell if it's sticking or not....I'm hoping to download the FSI stuff today or tomorrow, and we'll use that on the iPods to reinforce things.

Not much else going on right now. We're just plugging along in school, doing the next thing. Life is - at the moment! - on an even keel. Money's tight - like it is everywhere - but we're doing OK. (And today is payday, so we're OK.) As of right now, all the critters are healthy - we have a LOT to be Thankful for. But that's tomorrow's post. :lol:

    Let's see.... Ali: Knitting IS hard - at first. It takes practice to teach your hands what to do, when. I promise, IF you want to learn to knit, you…
