Friday was graduation for the university where I work. I was "Rocky's Handler" - Rocky is our mascot and I had to walk around with him, give him water and breaks and take his picture with graduates. It was all in all a fun day!

Pictures from the day:


Rocky, me, Jim (who received his MA in Linguistics)


My family - there to see Jim!


My little Aiko and I.


Eilleen and I! (Awesome stoll!!)

Friday evening, I went to Dave's, and this his friend Randy and his girlfriend picked us up and we went out to a local sushi place. I'm not a sushi person, so I had shrimp tempura but it was a lot of fun.

Saturday morning I spent a lot of time outside with my parents working on the pool. We went to the pool store and bought a new skimmer net, pole, scrubber brush and vacuum head and set to work on really getting the pool clean. As of yesterday, the water was clear, but there was some green crap in the bottom that needed to be sucked out. I think it looks much better today, but we will probably do another round to really get it all out. We also got a new um...what's the word? A whole new filtering system - so this year, it should stay even cleaner than it was last year - and last year, it was pretty good!

After pool time (I also went in while cleaning - the water is still a bit cold (73ish) but the air was hot and it felt good), I did some quick food shopping to buy supplies for a flan. I made the flan, got ready, and then Dave came and picked me up to take me to Lisa's graduation party. Dave's mom says my flan is the best she's ever had, lol.

Here are some pictures:


Dave and his cousin's son. Dave was teaching him how to bat.

After the party, Dave came back here and we hung out and watched "Slumdog Millionaire." I liked it, but didn't love it or anything. Oh well.


Today is Sunday - not sure what the plans are for the day. The weather is looking pretty grey - boo.

Edit:

I have spent the morning going through shoes (got rid of 5 pairs - that's pretty good!) and organizing my room and doing a lot of laundry and ironing. Woohoo!

Cute pix! I didn't LOVE Slumdog either, but it was okay. When is your walk? I do plan to donate before the event!

That's how I felt - it also made my oddly nervous throughout the entire thing. Not sure why, it just did. And it was sorta sad, but I dunno...can't complain though, we were borrowing it and it was free entertainment for the evening.

Aw, thanks! The walk is June 7th.

I still haven't seen 'Slumdog Millionaire'! Oh well, heh.

You look cute in your dress, and Alyson is going to look adorable with a baby belly before long. : ) Dave is too cute with his cousin's son, too!
