    I have to drive 45 minutes to my job in the fall. I figured I’d rather drive that fall and live with Ben then have to live in the town where my job is and live by myself. I’m happy that you and Spencer get to live together!

  2. I’m anxious to see the Jacob’s ladder…

    The half-way point for an apt. is a brilliant idea! Good for you and Spencer for doing this.

    Kayla, each time I read your post, you mention something new, creative, and different. I am amazed at all the things you make at home. How did you learn to do these things? Did your mother and/or grandmother teach you? Did you read books or take some classes to teach you how to knit, sew, crochet, etc?

    Take advantage of that 40 minute each way comute by listening to books on CD or tape depending on what player is in your car. I have a weekly 1-1/2 hour commute and it has been fantastic! Reading regular books just don’t fit into my schedule so this way I can indulge while driving. My library has an borrowing program with other libraries in the county and another program for any in the nation, so I get my books for free.

    Excellent suggestion! My new apartment is just blocks from the library. Surely it will become my new hang-out spot.

    I really enjoy “me” time spent learning new things. Mom got me started on sewing when I was very little, crocheting when I was about 8 and I taught myself to knit when I was about 10. The best book for learning needlework is the Reader’s Digest book. I still refer back to it. There was no YouTube when I was learning how to knit and crochet so I progressed pretty slowly.

    My mom really values “craftiness” and made sure I had all of the supplies I needed. She doesn’t knit or crochet but she helped read patterns to me when I was learning.
