Finally settled in and employed – I can blog without guilt, hurray! In fact, today I sorted through a box that has been accumulating important papers, junk mail, old wedding invites, recipes, maps, etc. for over three years. I am amazed at how good it feels to have that heap organized! I feel like I have so much more control over my finances simply because I know where all my documents are. Yay!
Ariel’s knitting has really taken off since I saw her in January. About a week ago she completed her first fair isle project – in one day! If there wasn’t another knitter in the house, my projects would be at a standstill. This sunny weather has really put a damper on my Christmas knitting. Since we moved to California, we have had one lovely rainy day. Locals swear fall will begin by the end of October, but I don’t believe them. I’m not complaining, but I did have higher expectations for the weather and my knitting progress.
Ariel and I stopped in Velona Needlecraft in Anaheim Hills, just to check out the merchandise. Holy cow! Every nook and cranny of that store is packed with wooly goodness.
