Who's that Spunky Monkey?

Well I can see why B decided to barrack for the New York Jets, they are as bad as Collingwood. You can obviously tell how much I enjoyed the game - when I got home I didn't even know who they had played!

B is in at work today - poor thing. We are having a dvd night tonight, though not sure what we will watch. The last few have been chick flicks (Monster-in-law and A Lot Like Love) so I think tonight might see a bit more action. I wonder if B will remember to put the 1st disc in rather than the 2nd. We thought it was a bit odd when "The Godfather Part II" only went for an hour, not to mention that it didn't make a whole lot of sense!

I thought I'd add some photos of my latest work today:

This is my bramble stitch scarf that I am knitting as a present to ME. The colouring matches the coat I bought at the end of last winter. I can't wait to wear them!

This is a Christmas present for gorgeous little Ava (though it will be summer back in Oz). The hat still needs some tassles on the top corners and I have just started mittens (left).

This is another present for me. It still needs to have the edges crocheted (I need a lesson from the girls at knit night).

And finally, this is a completed project (I know it's hard to believe). It is a jumper for my little niece or nephew.

Last of all, this is a photo I took at the Albuquerque zoo last weekend. It was such a beautiful day that Meg, Jenny and I decided to go and do some knitting. I couldn't go without taking a photo of this guy though!

My First Posting!

Who ever thought I would have enough computer knowledge to set up my own blog! I just hope that this is more successful than my attempt to keep a diary - I only made it to April this year.

I guess the whole point of this blog is to keep family and friends back home in Australia up to date with our adventures here in Albuquerque. Now english was never my strongest subject at high school, so you'll have to forgive the writing...

Tonight we're off to watch the NFL with a guy who B works with. B has decided to follow the New York Jets now that Ben Graham is playing for them. I'm still trying to understand the whole NFL thing so I think I might have to take the knitting so that I don't fall asleep!
