I’ve finished the Harry Potter series. I finished it last night while we were watching Chamber of Secrets. It made me very sad that all of Harry’s personal mentors (except Hagrid) were killed in the final battle. It was very sneaky how Rowling managed to get around the whole Harry-has-to-die thing. I finally went to bed about 2 or 2:30 after the Prisoner of Azkaban. Bran stayed up and watched the remaining movies. Tonight I’ll be watching more, after I record any First 48 or Crime 360 reruns I might not have.
Oh, right, I’m working tonight. Never mind.
I’ve just showered (well, not just but within the last 1/2 hour) and am waiting for Bran to shower. We’ll be heading to the university to pick up my gown and band (bachelor degrees don’t get hoods here) and the tickets for him and Boy to the ceremony. I’m actually getting rather excited about the whole deal. Just think, in three days I will have my diploma in my hand and I’ll be officially “Dykewife B.A.”
Boy turned 16 years old yesterday. I’m very proud of the person he’s become though I still really miss the tiny (in comparison) squalling bundle he was long ago. It was only yesterday. Really. It was.
I’m thinking of taking my embroidery to work tonight. I have to practise more before I actually work on a pattern. It’s been a very long time since high school when I learnt how to embroider. I should probably find a tutorial on the net to relearn some of the things. I’ve got the daisy chain, line and need to practise the velvet stitch, but the little knot thing has me at a loss.
That’s about all of the exciting news from the Great White North (which is getting nicely green). It’s going to be somewhat cool today. It’s been that way for a few days. Not that it breaks my heart any, mind you. I like that it’s a bit chilly. It keeps me from becoming a frizzy puddle.
