162:366 Carus and I went and got hair cuts today. I haven't had bangs in about 5 or 6 years and thought it was about time for a change and what bigger change than bangs. Carus has been asking for a cut for about a week or two. I love it, so cute. And it makes her look a little older too I think. She's been doing that a lot lately, looking older.

What skill have you learned in the past year that you are proud of?
There are a few things in the past year or so that I've taught myself. Here are a few:
--This year I have not used the auto setting on my camera for any of my 366 shots. I'd say I haven't at all, but there have been a few times where I was more interested in getting the shot then trying to figure out the settings fast enough on my own.
--I taught myself to knit. Actually, this skill might be more than a year old now. I'm not sure. I'm incredibly slow and only know one stitch - but I'm proud that I've been able to teach myself something. (Good lord, the internet is awesome.)
--I'm learning to make jams. I say learning because that batch was a little bit tart so proof I need practice. Strawberry season is starting and I'm going to give it a go soon.
--There are many other little things I'm learning and/or perfecting. Recipes, gardening, horse stuff, work related... the list goes on and on and changes all the time. Gotta keep learning new things.
