The Trophy

I give up... I have no idea. Clues point both to Diagon Alley in London and Hogsmeade Village. I am going to have to go with the latter since the items included could be purchased but the Hogs Head is just too much of a clue.

So... I vote to look in Hogsmeade.

I was out of town when an adorable owl showed up at home. Thank goodness my mom was nice enough to take him in and look after him while he warmed up before making his way back to Agatha. I am so happy that the little owl missed out on our horrible snowfall that started last night. :( We really don't need more snow.

What I unpacked from the adorable box :)

As I began to rip off carefully remove the tissue paper look at what I found...

Two nummy pumpkin pie candles. Mmmmm my favorite :) Two adorable post it pads of paper. And look at the lovely Wanderer earrings!!! I love them and am wearing the round pair right now :D

An absolutely adorable bag! I love the way it looks and it really is so very roomy; perfect for toting my other kit and knitting items.

Nummy nummy nummies :) Snickers, Ferrero (squee) and nutella :) Nuts galore! Unfortunately the Ferrero is already gone but they were just so good ;)

Rounding out my kit is... some lovely red and black Galway worsted wool. Hat and fingerless mittens patterns from my Ravelry favorites. And a Brittany hook!!! SQUEE :) oh how I love them so much!

Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much Agatha! I love everything so much :)
I think I am going to get cracking on those patterns soon because it is getting quite cold and very snowy here.

You are totally awesome and thank you again!!!

To Do: Jose Cuervo Cookies

1 cup of water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup or brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup nuts
2 cups of dried fruit
1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila

Sample the Cuervo to check quality. Take a large bowl,
check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality,
pour one level cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter
in a large fluffy bowl.

Add one peastoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point
it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still ok, try another
cup just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy.

Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup
of dried fruit.

Pick the frigging fruit off the floor.

Mix on the turner.

If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaters just pry
it loose with a drewscriver.

Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who geeves
a sheet. Check the Jose Cuervo. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.

Add one table.

Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can

Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall

Don't forget to beat off the turner.

Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the
Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the wishdasher.

Cherry Mistmas ! 

Early Xmas Present

Today I got my grade for a super tough and intensive course that has plagued me for the past 5 weeks. The subject matter wasn't exactly mind bending but the fact that there wasn't a break in between the previous class and this most recent class made my brain want to cry. However I am happy to say that I have passed through the class with a 97.5% and maintaining my lovely 4.0 gpa. Only one more class to go that starts January 4th. I am so looking forward to February 7th, my graduate degree program will be completed at that time.

Now I need to find myself a job. I am really up for moving anywhere although I would love to land on the northeast or northwest coasts somewhere. Let the MBA job hunting begin. I have until August when my loans will be wanting to get repaid. Wish me luck :)

An Owl is Off...

Well, at least soon. The post isn't open just yet, but today Stig will be taking off and heading his way to Cassandra with some delightful gifts. I would have gotten the package out much earlier than the deadline, in fact I had hoped on it, but this class as well as other life goings on just seemed to snowball. But I am happy to say that everything is completed, and ready to go. I hope that she enjoys the crocheted and knitted items. Yes, you heard right, knitted as well. I decided to test out my newly regained knitting skills by doing a couple of simple items. Okay... I will supplement this later. Right now I am off to work on my final class assignment before holiday break (which is due tomorrow). And later I have a birthday party for my friend, so I have yummy yarn to wind as well.

A Quick Post

This week has been one large headache. I have a group project due and because everyone else didn't want the responsibility, I am group leader. The assignment was extremely vague and I finally got an explanation from the professor.. yesterday. The project, both the individual and group portions are due tomorrow before midnight. And to do the group portion, each member of the group must complete the individual portions first. Yes... such a joy.

Okay, well I better get back to my homework and get this cracked out before my group meeting at 7.

Wish me luck ;)
