Finals Are Over

Finals are over and summer vacation begins. I am so glad to be done with finals but it will be strange not having anything due. Perhaps now I can catch up on some of my knitting projects that have been set to the side because of a busy schedule.

A Package For Me!

I got this great kit from Lily of Flitwick of Slytherin. She gave me 100% baby alpaca yarn that she dyed, some great soap that her aunt made, a yummy smelling candle, an amazing bag, and chocolate. A very relaxing package, which is exactly what I needed because this week and next happen to be finals for me.
