Quick update

The move has gone very smoothly, everything is out of the old place and the new place is unpacked enough to be comfortable. My dad is coming this weekend to help out with some things around the condo (drippy faucets, drape hardware to hang, nothing major but all necessary). It will be the first time anyone in the family besides myself and son have seen the place.

I'm not posting any pictures yet because my son is still at his grandparents and I want him to get a chance to see the place with all of our stuff in "real life" before I post pictures.

Now if I could just get some knitting time back! - Dfly

Look, I have keys! (I'll change the locks but I'm amused by these keys)

To those that don't know, there was a horrible huge fire at a local factory (Started late Sunday and it's still smoldering now) and our town was evacuated yesterday... ( This of course added to stress levels (especially since my bank and the closing location were evacuated too). Even though the evacuation was called off in the evening, I stayed with a wonderful friend from work who opened her home to me. We chatted until bed while I knit, watched some TV and I got to sleep on a real bed instead of an air mattress. I am so grateful to her!

Now the movers come tomorrow so here are my boxes! There are more in other rooms and a bunch of "self-carry" items but these are the biggest piles.

P.S. I won't have internet for a couple days so I'm not ignoring anyone. I might have to steal some air time at Starbucks

I am a Sunflower

I have pictures of the mountains of boxes but it's not very exciting, just claustrophobic.

Saw this on someone else's blog...
