It's been kind of hectic. I actually have been really busy working at the bookstore, and then when I come home I can't calm down because I am constantly aware of how much dog drool is seeping into the carpet and all over the furniture. I will try to get more regular this week with the comic strips as I will only have to work for a few days.

So I am officially a member of the Barnes and Noble family. I am still in training as I have only been working for three days. Spending the day around books makes me notice so many more. I have to pace myself or I could quickly spend all my meager wages.

I cooked the eggs again, and succeeded wonderfully. I also cooked pasta, and green beans in boiling water. It's tough cooking in the mountains.
As for day four, we skied and skied some more. I actually know what I am doing on the slopes and we went on the blue trails! Fun!
We were both complete newbies to skiing. And, after a few frustrating hours of learning, skiing did become fun! But, despite our enjoyment, we clearly didn't pack the proper equipment and ended up purchasing some inexpensive ski pants at the local Walmart.

I had resisted removing the heavy comforter for quite a while with the fear that the temperature would drop the following night. But, after nearly a month of overheated nights, I finally gave in and put out the summer bed linens. As feared, the temperature has dropped again, and we needed to add an extra blanket.

Took the whole sewing machine apart (that was difficult). Then we think we figured out the problem, and hopefully will be able to prevent all future problems. Those machines are created by geniuses, it is incredibly complex inside and we actually didn't even need to disassemble the entire machine to solve the problem. I still have no idea how the device works and probably never will.
