My garden this year looks pretty pathetic. About a dozen spinach plants actually sprouted (out of two full rows). The cucumbers are struggling to stay alive. The watermelon sprouted but then either died or something ate them. They're gone now. The only things really thriving are the tomato plants and the sunflowers. My cherry tomato plant already had 4 ripe tomatoes, which I promptly

It's time to register for next semester's classes already. I'll be taking Financial Markets and Institutions. I've looked at the syllabus already and it looks like this class will keep me even busier than the one I'm in now. Every week there will be chapter readings, homework problems, online postings, quizzes, midterm, final, an essay, AND a term paper! Aye-aye-aye!
Next week is the week of finals. I hope I do well enough to maintain my A. Why do midterms and finals have to be worth so much?
Last month, Niina of Ilmattaren ihmemaa (Ilmatar Wonderland) hosted a July 4th blog giveaway. She stitched up "Land That I Love" by Pine Mountain Designs.
I was the lucky winner! In addition, she sent some candy from Finland. The chocolate was yummy. The other candy tasted like salty licorice.
The pillow will go great with all the Pine Mountain kits I won in Amy's giveaway. Thank you Niina!
I finished the stitching part of my mail art envelope last night. Woo Hoo! I'll be making it into an actual envelope sometime this week. I am so excited about getting it put together. I think the recipient will really like it. I'll have pics soon, so stay tuned!
Until next time,

for my newest siggie!)
