Sunday evening catch – up…

Currently: Listening to BBC 7 – To the Manor Born, and I need to catch up with Lord Peter Whimsey and the Unpleasantness at the Belona Club. (I really love reading Dorothy L. Sayers, and I love Lord Peter.. mmm.)

Dusk is coming.. and it is early. This past few weeks the light has really changed. Not even 7:30, and I need the lights on.

Impatient is the mood. The new house is coming along fine.. but this end part of the process seems so slow. We knew it would be tough. But to live within feet of something that looks finished.. torture. A few more weeks. Tomorrow finish off insulation, Tuesday get the final inspection done on the insulation (passed all the electrical/plumbing/mechanical inspections last week) and then the sheet rocking upstairs begins, and then it will be almost done.

The house continues to overflow with boxes. This summer I packed all the stuff I definitely didn’t need before we moved in or shortly thereafter… like winter coats and Christmas ornaments and the kids memory boxes. They are safely stored at the inlaws. Lately, the focus has been on cleaning and sorting the stuff we will need soon after we move in. Getting rid of duplicates, emptying book shelves so we can move them. Going through the fabric and yarn and organizing. So weekends I dust and pack, and there is a den area full of boxes. And a front room full of give away/donate.

Recently: But, I have finished a sweater project. The complete details are on Ravelry, for knitterly types. I think this will be a very nice late fall/winter sweater. It has 3/4 length sleeves, and the yarn is soft and squooshy. Looking forward to wearing it.

This sweater is called the Ring of Tara jacket from Knit N Style magazine, August 09 issue. I used Galway yarn by Plymouth yarns.

Last week: This week has flown by. Last weekend was Labor Day, and we packed and cleaned and went on a family hike at Badin Lake.

The 5 best guys in the world.. The husband and my three sons and Uncle B.

We hiked up and down for 5 plus miles, making a circuit around the various campgrounds, most of the hike being at the water's edge.

IMG_1256Looked it up here, and it appears calling it either heron or egret is okay.

Fresh air and exercise felt great... and we were scouting it out for a scout weekend coming up.. it should do just fine.
