Moving


You know it sure takes a lot to move a whole house! But, we are finally in the new place now, although our old house still hasn’t sold. (Any prayers on my behalf would be most welcome!)

So, in a nut shell, here is the scoop: We moved in May 9th, and have been working on fixing builder’s errors, moving dirt, breaking up rocks, chopping down weeds, unpacking boxes, getting everything put up, getting the internet (no cable on this road), getting our house insurance canceled, and then re-instated, etc., etc. Makes a person tired simply writing it out!

So, in the middle of all of that, I have been spinning and knitting, but not truly making much headway with any of it until the Tour de Fleece (on Ravelry) I really didn’t get a lot done, but I did finish a few things:

Wizard Island is Variegated BFL, from FatcatKnits, Moonshadow is Falkland from FatcatKnits, and Romeo is Falkland from FatcatKnits Famous Couples Spring Spin. . . Yummy!!

Denise kindly commented and gave me a kick in the pants to get going here again! I’ve missed talking with all of you and hopefully it won’t all spill out on this first post back, eh?

We officially sold our house in Franklin, KY two days prior to the day we had the mover’s coming to move us to Berea, KY! How’s that for timing??!! So off we went in the dark o’clock with two cars, with two cats, two dogs and two very worn out Potere’s. But, all was well, the doggies did great, and Marlee only asked “are we there yet” about three times, once every hour on the drive out here.

We slept on an air mattress that was freakin’ cold and it had a leak, due to an errant cat claw I believe, and we decided the first and foremost item to set up would be our bed! We now have a “heat pump” for our primary heat source and I personally think this type of heat sucks. We have to supplement with a gas log fireplace to actually be at a temperature that my body likes. Caryn has been in a hoodie and a blanket since coming home for Christmas break. As soon as this furnace dies we are going to a duel fuel furnace!!!!

Bryan has officially graduated from UK and is now the proud recipient of a BS in Biology. We are so proud of him! He has applied to four colleges for Graduate work in pharmacy school, but that is six months away. So, he’s looking for work.

Still have boxes to unpack and Christmas items to come down, so I will close with I hope you all have a very Happy and Healthy New Year, and let’s all get there safely!

We will probably be doing this on New Year’s Eve:

Morris and Marlee

Morris and Marlee zzzzz's

due to cleaning, packing, and all other non-fiber related events being the norm rather than the unexpected. We will continue this program as soon as normalcy is once again maintained. If you should have any concerns or comments please feel free to contact me via comments below or at my e-mail address! We will all be waiting to hear from you!

Some, maybe more:

Jake and Bailey

We will miss being here, but, it’s all good! We will be back soon!
