Muggle Artifacts

I just got the coolest new muggle artifact! It's called a "laptop" and it's some kind of muggle computer. Anyway, I'm able to make my weekly blog posts with it so I'm super-happy. Now I won't feel like I'm missing out on so much that's going on around here at Hogwarts because of my limited computer access.
In other news, I'm sending Owly McFeatherpants out with the package for my spoilee on Monday.... Keep your eyes open Waverly. (although it might take him a while to fly all the way from Canada)

Almost Ready

My kit is almost ready to send!!! I just need to take pictures of everything and pack it all into a box. I also need to give my owl a few lessons on international flying, this is his fourth trip out with a swap package, but his first time flying one out to the US. I'm sure Owly McFeatherPants will do fine. Quit laughing! He was a second-hand owl, I didn't name him!

Checking In

Wow, it's already been a week since I've posted! I haven't had much access to a computer lately, but I'm determined not to miss another week! Can't let my fellow Gryffs down!!!

Swap kit update: I've nearly got my kit together now. I was pretty discouraged after the bag disaster, but that's all taken care of now.... Just a few more things to add, and I'm all set to send!

Harry looked around; there was Ginny running toward him; she had a hard, blazing look in her face as she threw her arms around him. And without thinking, without planning it, without worrying about the fact that fifty people were watching, Harry kissed her.

Bad Gryff

I'm so sorry for not posting last week. I was really ill with a terrible flu. Before you all start hexing me, let me tell you that having the flu when you're nearly 8 months pregnant, while taking care of a two year old (well, she'll be two in 10 days) while your husband is out of town is NOT fun. But, the important thing is I survived and I'm back posting again! Yay!

I've almost finished the bag I'm making for my swap pal.... and it's HORRIBLE!!!! I HATE IT!!! Don't worry, I'm not actually going to give it to her now, it's too awful. I had a feeling it wasn't looking right while I was knitting it, but I figured it would all work out after it was felted. Nope. So, I've cast on for something completely different. I really hope this one works out better. Wish me luck!
