Vintage Adventures

Howdy! I'm a crafty gal living in the Golden State of California; all about vintage clothes, swing dancing, knitting, cooking, books
and adventures!

Still Ill

Still home sick blaah.
Having lots of onion soup, tapioca pudding and ginger-lemon-honey tea. 
Right now I'm watching "The talk of the town", a 40's black-and-white comedy/drama.
Ever since going to the California Balboa Classic '14 in January and seeing a presentation about the swing dancer Jewel McGowan, I've been hunting old films she dances in to watch!
 Uh oh ya, my sister's wedding is at the end of June and I still haven't gotten a bridesmaid dress yet  >.<  
It's supposed to be tea-colored; I'm pretty confident I'll be able to find something in the local vintage shop.

I tried to go to work today, but my patient sent me home!
So I get to stay home and study, knit, drink tea and watch Swedish crime shows  :)
I'm currently working on my first knitted sweater and I have to say, it's going pretty well!

Busy Bee

Still alive here!
My sister got engaged last month and has her mind set on being a June bride so ya.. lots of wedding planning!
I'm planning on taking my pharmacy state board exam in May.
I've got more Red Cross duties at the new Naval Hospital.
Still working as a home health care nurse.
It's a very refreshing slower pace, compared to the busy hospital atmosphere I used to work in.
I've got more time to spend and focus on my patients.
Also makes for a lot of downtime for studying and knitting.
Oh ya, knitting!
#1 on my new year's resolutions list.
I finally learned how!!
I feel as if my world has expanded.
