1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 28 - Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Alexampersandra on: February 24, 2019 07:41:17 AM
Anana is home! Look at all the great stuff he brought back from whatthepuck:


Beautiful scrapbook, postcards, notebook (which, as of this morning, has already gone into service helping me with meal planning), and his pizza costume from Halloween!


(The pizza box was not part of the package, it was dinner and I didn't bother moving it before unpacking Anana's box.) If you can't tell, the purple thing in the middle is a metal straw (I can never have enough of those)! The Christmas gift near the middle is...


A very pretty pineapple ornament! (I have yet to buy a new plastic bin to repack all our Christmas stuff in after moving, so I can actually slip this into the pile and not wonder where it went when I'm trying to gather Christmas stuff 8 months from now!)

Thank you, whatthepuck!

And I'm going to officially take a break from the LV swap for a while, so this was Anana's last trip for a while. With a new job, new home, planning to do a lot of health improvements over the next year (primarily, work my way up to a half marathon and lose 50 pounds), and hopefully starting a second Master's later this year, I don't want the swap to become an obligation rather than a fun thing I do. I'll still be stalking the boards from time to time though  Grin

Y'all... I forgot how much work it is to start a new job. Time has FLOWN. I haven't given Amelia a proper tour of my new workplace but we'll get around to it. Meanwhile...





I found a Little Free Library at the duck pond in our neighborhood (which will also be on my running trail once it's a little warmer than 20 degrees...) The ducks were starting to swarm... Sadly, we didn't bring anything to feed them, so they didn't much care for us after that.

I am pleased to announce, though, that I know exactly where Amelia's box of Stuff So Far is (which is more than I can say for a lot of things I packed weeks or months ago...)

Amelia has not gotten to do many fun things lately, what with me finally and officially moving to PA, but we are ready to have a great 2019!


We finished my 2018 reading list yesterday, so here is the 2019 list! (All suggestions from friends/family; one per person, nothing I've ever read before, and I capped it at 36 books because three per month seems reasonable.)


We are preparing to make fondue tonight! Only for us and one friend, but tradition is tradition!


Is it time to toast yet?  Grin

Amelia and I made latkes for our Hanukkah celebration at work today!



(I know, the whole thing about latkes is frying them in oil for the symbolism, but these are pre-made frozen ones because I needed a lot of them and had to get them done before work, so we baked them. There's definitely oil in them though, so I think it counts.)

Happy (mid-)Hanukkah to all!

Amelia and I are up to a lot of bookishness tonight...


Only two more days (well, more like one day and a few hours) left of NaNoWriMo! I'm handwriting it this year, just for fun.


I'm at work tonight, so we took a look at my withdraw cart (I think my favorite one here is "Zune for Dummies.")


And we took a look at the incoming books cart to make sure things that I've ordered have made it here, and to familiarize ourselves with the new items. (Which, since I have 13 work days left here, is not so necessary, but a good habit.)

I got the chance to run a 5K (my third, in as many months!) on the campus of my alma mater, so I got there early to show Amelia around.


That's the Trible Library, which just finished a partial renovation, is GORGEOUS, and is featured on the medal for the 5K.


And that's our fountain (which was moved to an entirely different place than it was the last time I was on campus... I graduated 10 years ago). Students at CNU receive a penny at orientation, and drop that penny into this fountain during the procession across campus to graduation.

Amelia was in my bag while I ran, and I beat my last time by 22 seconds, so I think I'll take her on my next one, too!

Oh my gosh, Anana's Halloween costume is amazing!!!  Shocked

I just realized I never posted Amelia's costume, and I bought a new phone this weekend so I'll have to take a few minutes later to find the photo and post it (or take a new photo with the new phone, maybe).

In the meantime... Amelia and I have rocked the vote!



(We also just got home yesterday from a quick weekend in Hershey, so check the IG: www.instagram.com/alexampersandraslv )

Woke up early this morning and it was chilly, but so pretty out in the backyard, looking at the bay!

Forgot to mention earlier... Amelia has Instagram! Instead of making a new account every round, I finally caved and made @alexampersandrasLV so I don't have to remove an account and make a new one to add to my phone every few months  Grin

Amelia and I have already gone on a trip to and back from Hershey PA, because I had a job interview... and I got the job! I'll still be in Virginia for a couple months, so Amelia will get about half of this swap as a Virginian and the other half as a Pennsylvanian!

In the meantime, here's approximately the halfway point between the two on the drive I take, and several of my LVs have seen if we're lucky enough to have nice weather on the mountain: Blue Ridge Mountains scenic view on I-64.

Rey is back home!


Fun stuff! I love magnets, and I got THREE of them this time! I tried to get the mug rug to stay partially folded over so you could see the pretty fabric on the back too but I guess it flipped back over, oops. So pretty though!


A peek at the scrapbook pages (I picked the food pages, because who doesn't love a culinary adventure?)


Look at all the memorabilia in the back! Amazing.

Thanks, Eamea! Rey had a great time with you, clearly  Grin
