Rainy days, Packing and Saying Goodbye
I finished this cowl! But I haven't had time to do it's dedicated photo shoot, maybe early next week. I've been knitting frantically every moment I've had free. Yesterday the rain arrived and with the thunderstorms came my frizzy, swirly, wonky hair. Oh I don't know why I battle it so. We all want what we cannot have. So with each hour passing I tried to avoid looking in the mirror.
My husband and I drove to the newlyweds apartment to load up the "pod". I believe my husband loved eking out every square inch of that space. We took lots of photos, of a pod loaded up. There is beauty in precision.
When we started loading up, half of us was doubtful (my husband and me) one of us was positive (my son-in-law) and my daughter had no opinion one way or the other. I loved the moment when we all thought, 'that's it, nothing more will fit, what should be sacrificed and left behind' to 'oh! let's see if those chairs do fit and what about that nightstand'.
I brought home with me: food, shelving units, two chairs and some of their possessions that we will store here for the two years they are in California. So now my house is a bit of a mess.
We had lunch and dinner together to break up the long work day. Goodbyes were said- I'm excited for their new adventure but I'll miss them. I keep thinking back to when my husband and I moved to Texas so many years ago and saying goodbye to my own family. Full circle of life (cue--lion king song).
She will be back at the end of September for my nephew's wedding and I'm sure we will see them sometime over the winter break. As you know, I'm planning our own trip to visit their new home in the spring, hopefully with our son as well.
Today I'll be on another adventure which I'll share for my weekend post. There will be YARN therapy involved :)
Have a lovely weekend!
