**********I apologize (again) for my lack luster (and pretty much lacking) blog posts of late. I have been so busy with life that my blog has suffered.
My new research position is amazing, but it takes a lot out of me right now. As soon as the lab is completely up and running, everything should be good.
I also have resumed biking to work (well sorta). My ride is about 5-6 miles each way, so not too bad of a ride. It's really great working in a town that is so bike friendly, all the bike paths are great. And I feel amazing now that I'm back in the saddle.
Lets see what else is new. Oh yeah, this lovely lady is going to her new home (in Canada). I have sold my Latte at Hotel Mercedes cuff. I hope her new owner will love her as much as I do. But don't worry, I think I'm going to make another one of these; I'm thinking maybe in a dusty gray-blue color palate.
I'm also working on a line of smaller cuffs. Well I guess they are no longer cuffs when they are only about 1/2-3/4 inches wide. They are really nice and delicate. I'm hoping to have some time this weekend to snap some pictures.
Yoda (yes we've picked a name and yes we are Star Wars fans) is growing so big. She has finally conquered the stairs on the deck, so she doesn't need any help going up and down. When she finally mastered them, all she wanted to do was go up and down the stairs, it was pretty cute.
She's now 11 weeks old (time for our next set of shots) and such a handful. She's almost completely house broken, she has now started to whine at the door when she needs to go out. She also has the "sit" command down pretty good. We're so proud of her.
Nacho has completely excepted her as part of the family (which we didn't think would happen). Yesterday they were sitting on the couch together, CUDDLING!!!! Nacho doesn't cuddle with anyone. It was so cute. Toonces has yet to come around, but she's making progress. It's hard for her because she's not the center of attention anymore. But she'll learn to love Yoda, I just know it.
