The next day, we made a pineapple upside-down cake in Karl's new cast iron dutch oven.

'Tween knitting group at the library is winding down for the year. We meet September through April, so next week will be our last meeting for a long long time! I'm going to miss those knitters.
One girl is making a scarf and decided yesterday to add buttons to it. Of course I was thrilled because I got to teach her how to make buttonholes. The thing was, she wanted two big black buttons, and we didn't have any. So I said I'd get them by next week (with all the best intentions). Of course, within thirty seconds of saying good-bye to the knitters, I forgot all about the buttons I had promised.
A little while later, I got on the bus to go home. Riding along, the woman next to me turned to reach for something, and her back was basically in my face. Annoying? Yes. But guess what was on the back of her jacket, 1/2 inch away from my eyes, impossible to not see? Two big black buttons. Exactly what I needed to be reminded of! Miracle? Coincidence? I don't know, but I love it when that kind of thing happens.

On Easter, we went to my mom's house with our canoe. I got to ride around taking millions of pictures of turtles while Karl and my mom powered us. We had a beautiful day and I really did take a ridiculous number of pictures of turtles. My favorite is watching them crawl from the log into the water, but I kept missing that part because I was too busy trying to snap the pictures.
