The good, the bad and the ugly of my training and other stuff

The Good

Player piano between class and cafeteria

The Bad

Fire alarms: one at the training center Monday 10 minutes before we were done with class. The second at the mall on Tuesday, 10 minutes before I left after lunch. None since, thankfully.

The Ugly

Is this not the ugliest couch you've ever seen? To the upholsterer's credit, the patterns match really well.

Other good stuff

I got to spend a good bit of quality time with my friends Mark and Sarah and their kids. The three of us met freshman year at KSU and they got married after our sophomore year. They moved to MA after graduation and we've kept in touch, but we don't get to see each other very often. That's why I try to come to Boston for training as often as I can.

I had dinner at their house Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday Sarah and I went to her knitting group after dinner. Wednesday was Mark's birthday and I made them take me to Kimballs to get ice cream.

Yes, it was cold, but the ice cream was really good! [photo by Sarah]

Tonight was one of Sarah's work-in-the-office days and her office is about 3 minutes from my training center. We went to a yarn shop after work/class. I might have picked up some yarn.

After the yarn shop, we went to a bead store and she stepped on the slippery slope of jewelry making. :) After that, we had a nice dinner together, just us girls.

I don't know if the goat picture counts as my critter picture, so I took a few pictures of Mark and Sarah's cats while I was visiting.

Butters has extra toes and likes to eat wool

Wolfgang has large feet, silky soft fur and likes to climb trees

He also has spooky, glowing eyes in the right light
