On the Home, Beading, & Knitting front:

I've been trying to get my thoughts coherent for a few days now so I could post something to my blog.
Ah well, I'll just have to make due with whatever comes to mind.

The new house is looking good. The paint colors I chose were a bit more vibrant than I had expected, but every time I go there they grow on me. We will see how they are to live with.

On Saturday, five of us went and moved all of Robin's stuff that had been stored at a friend's house to the new place. This was stuff that he was able to leave at his old house after having sold it to a friend. We managed to get it all into a van, a trailer, and a car trunk. After ~4 hours of work, all was done. Whew! And yes, the big strong men did 90% of it.

Today was OCBPA. We met at Panera instead of the usual place and everyone had lots of pretty sparklies to show off. Of course Carla had to out do everyone, she is way too prolific!
The guys worked on cutting holes in cheap doors for cat doors. I'm hoping to solve the “Cat is always on the wrong side of a closed door” problem by giving them their own doors while still being able to close the big ones. We'll see if it works. I bought cheap doors because no way was I going to cut up the nice oak ones in the house! Uh uh!

Ah well, tomorrow is stacking up to be a good day to work on the “Here's how long I've been stuck in the house waiting for workmen to show up” shawl. I have 3 appointments and I expect one will need me there pretty much all day long. Wheeee.....

On the Home front:

I own a new house!
Yeay! Now I just have to deal with all the little things that need done before I move in. You know, painting, carpeting, new alarm system....little things like that. Blblblblblbl

My friend Carla mentioned a nice shawl in a recent post on her blog, so I started it at the new house as a “Here's how long I've been stuck in the house waiting for workmen to show up” type shawl. I'm on Row 30 something. I'll try to remember to take the camera to the house for pictures of both the shawl and the house.
