In this space I write about my life, and knitting projects. I enjoy photography as well as other creative pursuits and share my experiences here.
Shades of Autumn: Yellow
I live on a wooded property so finding some yellow during this season was easy. Thanks to Little Macaroon and her lovely photos last week and this week, I grabbed my camera and snapped away this afternoon.
Good morning! How are you doing? We've been in the new house for about a week and the kitchen is almost done. The cabinets and walls are painted and my husband finished installing the new floor yesterday. All that's left is that pesky lazy Susan that will not reassembly (grr) and baseboards and transitions. Oh and we bought a new light and a new faucet. All of this was a face lift for the time being until we decide what we really want. I have to admit it was really nice using the double oven, I've never had one before but it came in handy! The kitchen is smaller than my old one but I'm completely okay with that. There is less to clean. Next up will be the family room where the paneling will be painted. We were going to paint the shelving but have decided to put that decision on hold for now. The animals are doing okay. Frodo is extra needy and Holly is hiding more so than usual. However, they know where their food is and every day it gets better and better. I had an a
Hello! I'm moved. The past week was a blur and quite stressful, I had a mini meltdown on Monday night over needing more boxes. The movers arrived Tuesday and Wednesday to load up our house then early Thursday morning they came back to pick up our bed and we all headed to western PA to immediately start unloading their trucks. The movers were so nice, friendly and kind. The original plan was to unload on Friday but my husband and I were successful in getting rid of enough 'stuff' that the estimated time was moved forward half a day. (all of the photos are in reverse order, thanks Blogger!) My sister, brother in law and my husband removed old wallpaper in the kitchen and will be painting the cabinets white. Unfortunately any kind of help I do is quite limited because of my RA. I can only take Tylenol for pain relief and so far I'm living off of it with whatever I do, I also need frequent breaks. I unpacked the kitchen mostly, the hallway closet and the master bedroom.
Good morning! After what feels like many weeks of not knitting but in reality maybe two weeks (that is many in my mind), I picked up my languishing shawl and knit for maybe an hour. What joyous elation. It felt like sitting down with an old friend. Speaking of old friends, I was unpacking my office/studio which is a huge huge mess and found my ball winder and swift. I was so excited! I've been wanting to wind up some hanks but packed those tools a long time ago. Now I need to wait for my desk to be brought to the studio room on Friday (family heirloom desk at my sister's house). I cannot wind without a table to anchor the ball winder and swift. These past two weeks I've been daydreaming of free time to sit and knit, to sit and go through my yarns. This move has taken up so much of my time and yet yesterday I had pockets of time - golden minutes to sit and relax. What are you working on this week?
