It never ceases to amaze me just how quickly the days fly by.
A scant two months ago, I began looking a for a place to call home. The immediate flurry of activity as rental and sales agents became involved has made much of the time a blur. The last three weeks of sale negotiations and the nail-biting stress of doing this on my own are fading quickly with the realization that it’s just over two weeks before I’ll be settled in my new digs. A good place, free of any hint of the ugliness that shadowed much of the last two years.
This realization put a burr under my saddle as of Friday past and I am now in full on packing and organizing mode. The Boy is coming back for a visit in three days too, note to self: men need more than snack foods! I’ve much still packed thankfully. It became apparent almost immediately upon moving here that it would be temporary, so only the things I’ve been using to be dealt with. An order of boxes arrived yesterday and I’ve working at getting the least used things packed, labelled and stacked. Next up this week is to find a small, private mover – beer, pizza and friends being all well and good but probably the same cost and to begin tying up all the account type things.
In between, there is a little knitting to keep me on an even keel. Jacaranda / Jose got a lot of love this past week, the back is now done and the fronts have been cast on:
Despite my – ahem – better judgement, I’ve decided to participate in the Sweet Georgia “Summer Of Socks” KAL. I love SG’s yarns and have some kicking around that really needs to be knit. A couple bordering on ancient skeins of “Boheme” colourway should do for this project. The Superwash Sock is thick, bordering on a Sportweight and I’m thinking my own “Japanese Lanterns” pattern would be pretty in this or maybe my original “Mad-tini” socks.
And with that, another work day calls – loud and grumpy, like an angry fish wife! – it would seem that again, I bought lotto tickets that aren’t jackpot winners. I’ll need to speak sharply to the sales clerk when I buy my next one!
Hope your Monday is gentle and if not that, productive.
