Exciting week!

Happy Monday Ladies!  This is going to be an exciting week for me.  As you might know I got the keys to our house and I can start moving in on Thursday (20th).  However, I am house / dog sitting for my cousin that night so it will have to be Friday that I move my first load in and will be my first night I spend in the new house.  The hubby leaves CA on the 25th and is planning on pulling into our driveway on the 28th.  He will have both of our cats and the bulk of our household.  I can hardly think of anything else, but I am trying very hard!!

The horses are both doing very well these days.  The new barn still holds some surprises for them.  It's been windy the past two days and the old barn creaks and moans and every once in awhile they will look at one another for reassurance that it's not a horse eating barn of some sort.  Sunday I went over to spend some quality time with my girls and I turned them out into a small pasture for a bit.  They both love to roll and scratch their backs.  But they were much more interested in eating the amazing green grass.  Here is a pic of them enjoying Ohio.  Dolly is on the left and Cheyenne on the right.

I also managed to finish the infinity scarf (no pic) and another beanie.  This one is in that bright flourescent pink (even though the camera didn't quite capture that brightness) and black chenille.  It's really cute on.

In an effort to make some room and empty a container for hauling things, I consolidated some yarn over the weekend.  I can't wait for the hubby to get here with my yarn stash as I have grown tired of the yarns I brought with me and since I have so much it's silly to go buy more in the interim.  So I am making do.  I did start another surprise yarn ball with the plans to eventually use the wonderful blue yarn I picked up while in Germany last year.  My Mom has asked me to make her goose, Gracie, a Christmas sweater and scarf.  So I have that idea bouncing around in my head.  I'm just going to make something that slips over head like the dresses she currently wears and make her a skinny scarf with fringe for her long neck.

  1. I'm glad your horses have settled in. It is exciting to be moving! I like your hat. I just bought some pink and black yarn that I really like. I've bought so much lately that I've been forgetting to add them to my stash, will have to do that soon. Take pictures of your new home and show us!

  2. I'm so relieved the horses seem to be adjusting so well. I will post some pics of the new place when I move in Friday.
