Who is working on the same project (WIP) as you? No one seems to be currently working on any of my WIPS :( (Well my sister Intarsia & I are working on the same socks but we can't have repeats and I need to have her for the person who lives w/in 100 miles).

Comment on at least one blog from each of the other houses. List their names here and something you learned about them from their blog post.

Andromeda Finch-Fletchley - Our very own Ravenclaw. I've learned she loves Lemonheads, Jeff Burton, and posted amazing photos for potions homework.
Storm Ivory - Hufflepuff, She is making a "reasons why I should buy an iPad" list just like I am!
Mistry Moonbleu - Gryffindor, She's amazing! She tats, she can handle ceramics, she takes care of large parrots for her neighbors. Oh & she's my spoiler! ;)
Quietus - Slytherin, What an amazing looking rock cake! If you haven't checked out the transfiguration homework, you should at least go and look at the picture.

Quidditch training

I'm just about to rush off to a team meeting to prepare for the upcoming quidditch game against Gryffindor this Sunday. I'll be up against my sister Intarsia. I'm not used to dueling with her, but it should be fun! A little sibling rivalry never hurt anyone.

I've also decided to do my own self-study program. I am determined to get my Spanish skills back to where they used to be so that I can really become truly fluent in the language. I have an opportunity to possibly use my Spanish skills in the muggle world, so that will help me keep refreshed & using the language.
If anyone has any suggestions on online resources, books or apps that might be helpful to dust off the synapses that contain my Spanish language memories I would appreciate your comments. ;)
