on down the road

So Valentines Day has passed rather quietly (as is my preference)------ or otherwise referred to as VD day around here. (wink wink). I'm just not a fan of days that 'they' (whoever the 'they' are) tell you what to be and when to be it. A day to express love, caring and all that happy jazz should be everyday, not on a day when the card companies make a fortune and the florists jack up their prices 150%. So there.

Life is kind of madness, I think we're moving! The talk of downsizing has been happening for about a year now and the time has come. The final 'new' spot will be looked at today although there is already a favorite in mind. The thought of the actual work of it makes my eyeballs hurt and the reality of very little storage is never a good thing. All in all it is kind of exciting. The opportunity to 'start fresh' is always thrilling to me and I start thinking of brand new color schemes and ways to dec the joint.

Knit has happened, the first front of the cardi is about 1/3 of the way along. Remember, this sucker is a looooooooooooooong swatch of knit! No Yoel, I will definitely NOT have the two fronts knit in a week, you are a crazy girl who is used to knit child sized sweaters for your tiny and cute little frame! :)

It's yummy and I still love it. I had to pop into my local lys to have another two fattie cakes of Eco wound as the stern reality that there was no way two chair backs and a toilet paper tube were going to handle the job. While there it was lovely to visit new yarns and goodies. You will be proud to know that I left without buying anything new.

Isn't that a LOTTA back????? It could be a full afghan for the little girl dog!!! But there is the proof of the done-ness.

Happy Monday------ Happy President's Day-------- hope that all is right and well on your side of the screen!

Exciting! Where are you moving?

I don't get the "VD Day" thing. Is it Victory of D____ day, or STD Day?

We've lived here about 25 years, moving scares the h*ll out of me.
