I've been absent for so long (again). Life once again has swallowed me up and I've been focused on other things. Through it all I've been knitting.
I'm joining in with Julia at Stamping Ground. In looking back at my posts I haven't joined the party since May! Wow, I knew it had been a long time but not THAT long.
Like I said, I've been knitting so my work desk has been my comfy chair. Here's a photo of my latest project. It's a lovely cowl that's knitting up wonderfully. The photo is a bit dark but the contrast in the yarn is from a dark brown to yellow to a light turquoise. Very southwest.
Some of you may know that I've been trying to sell my condo and buy a house. Today I found out that my condo appraised at the purchase price so that's a good thing. We are scheduled to close on the condo on Monday, October 31! Happy Halloween everyone.
The next step is the house. I'm scheduled to close on it on Friday, November 4. Yep, buying and selling in the same week. I have movers scheduled for November 9. Prior to that I need to clean and paint. Wish me luck. I have a wonderful couple that I hire to do things for me and they've already set aside that weekend.
I was over at the house last weekend and met one of the neighbors.
My dad mentioned that this buck is in amazing shape and would be considered a "trophy" buck. He was standing so still that I almost didn't see him, and when I did I questioned if he was real! There's a herd that hangs out in the neighborhood. How cool is that!
What's really cool -- I'll have a guest room (for those that would like a visit the Santa Fe, New Mexico area) AND a craft room. I am beside myself with happiness. What's even better is I have only one step into the house. No more stairs! Yay.
As always, I will visit those that visit me (please leave your number) and those that end in the same number as me. I'm off this coming Friday so it may not be until then that I get around.
So glad to be back among the WOYWW community. And really, we are a community. It's amazing how much we support each other through what life brings our way. I feel that I've been lacking in that area, being pre-occupied with my own life. I'm making some "end of year" resolutions that I'm hoping to keep.
