my wiggy

My pet guinea pig Hedwig "Wiggy" Scanlon died yesterday. She was the first pet I got when I lived on my own. I went to get her in November 2004 from the Greensburg Pet Smart. I was super excited about having a pet again after a year in the pet-less dorms. My entire life we've always had a least 2 pets living with us, usually a cat or dog. Wiggy was my first guinea pig. She lived with me in several apartments and traveled to school with me each year.

When I decided to move to Seattle I looked into bringing Wiggy on the plane and made sure I could take her in the cabin. The people at security told me it was the first guinea pig they had seen travel. She traveled 3000 miles with me and in the first few months was the only one I knew here.

I am going to miss her so much. Feeding her carrots and yogurt drops and petting her nose. I'm glad I was able to have her for so long. I hope she wasn't in any pain yesterday before I got her to the vet. : (

Pets really are the best. I can't imagine not having them. I'm hoping I can find a good home for all of Wiggy's supplies so someone else can get a guinea pig like Wig.

Feels like fall

The weather in Seattle right now reminds me of the fall season. Its been in the 60's and windy the last couple of days. So I was inspired to make a pumpkin spice bundt cake. It turned out pretty good considering I use a toy oven to bake.

I've been getting ready for my trip home in 3 days and I'm getting really excited. I can't wait to see everyone and enjoy the 80 degree weather. It is going to be so much fun.

Over the weekend Philip and I took the ferry over to Vashon Island. It was a rainy day but we walked down to the water and went to lunch at small restaurant called the Monkey Tree.

Testing out the flickr blog feature

So I finally got around to uploading more photos to my flickr account and and I set up the blog feature.

I made this card yesterday. I really like how it turned out and working with paper was fun.

My foot is asleep right now and my cat Lucy is trying to rub up against it. Ahh.

Yesterday before work I was working on sewing ideas and I made this fabric flower pin. I really liked how it turned out and thought I'd share.

Hot hot heat

The last few days in Seattle have been so hot. I have been obsessed with the weather all summer usually complaining that it has been freezing. I don't feel a wool sweater should be worn in any month that starts with J except Janurary but this weekend was the complete opposite of sweater weather. I would enjoy it more if our apartment wasn't a tiny oven.

Yesterday Philip and I walked around Lake Washington and I wish I would have taken my camera. I have been terrible about taking my camera out of the apartment and remembering to take photos. I need to start doing that. Maybe if I try and take a photo everyday or something it would help.

I have a job interview tomorrow and I'm a little nervous. My mind always seems to go blank when I know others are judging me. I really hope it goes well. I can't believe I finally got an interview.

Today was a fun day spent studying for the GRE and watching too much TV.
