Sorry for the crappy photo; I took a quick shot with my phone. 

Today is my mother’s birthday.  I tried to make her a pair of socks, but she refused when she found out I had also gotten her a non-knit present. REFUSED.  Who refuses handmade socks?  I knew I should have cast-on before she opened the books.  The top three are self explanatory. The bottom three are the His Dark Materials [The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spy Glass] trilogy by Philip Pullman.

Carol and I have both read the Hunger Games trilogy so we’re waiting to debrief with her when she’s done.  I have His Dark Materials as audiobooks, but I’m waiting for my mother to get to them so we could, in theory, read them at the same time.

The other news of the day is that I no longer have to take Noxafil (posaconazole), the yucky liquid, fake cherry infused, anti-fungal medicine… AND …drumroll please… I get to lower my prednisone dosage!  If I do well on that, I get to lower the dosage again in another month. Yay for less prednisone!  Stupid steroid.
