Sweetie’s Valentine Slippers took forever to dry, but now they’re finished and on his feet.
I made these for him because he broke his last slippers after many years of loving use. The entire sole was only hanging on on one side, and he was still trying to scuff around in them. I’m interested to see how long it takes him to wear through these–the next pair may need suede soles.

Katie brought me a wonderful surprise last week: a spring care package!
She included little notebooks, pencils, yarn, chocolate, and handmade mitts which have already been studying with me.
I spent yesterday morning in Canal Park, re-reading Kate Chopin’s The Awakening and transferring my notes from one edition to the other, which I’ll be able to have with me in the exam. It feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day to complete all of my studying, but I’m also looking forward to being done with this part of my M.A., so I don’t think I would want any more time before beginning my written exams on Friday.
