"Hi! Hey! I said hi! Wait! Don't run away! Hey! Hey! HEY! Come back!"
He has his Squirrel Patrol.
I have my knitting.
Those are steeks, my friends! Armhole AND front "V" steeks. From here on end, it's all good. And quick. Decreases mean...a shorter circular needle, and an end in site. I always marvel as I'm working on this vest how lovely the colours are together. But, when you look at it from "above", you notice the little differences that make it so special.
*sigh* I love Fair Isle...
"Hey Guys! Guess what?!"
"Mom's asking us a question."
"Why there's Atticus shmutz on the wall?"
"No. Dork. What Mom?"
We're gonna move after all!
Uh huh. That's right. Although I'd pretty much convinced myself that I should stay put (um, that would be last week's post), I decided otherwise after I'd spoken to my landlady.
Same rent I'm paying now. AND I get a say in who moves into this place. And, I'll have the whole month of June to move in slowly. Not like I'm going far...I won't even need to hire movers. It is larger - the kitchen alone dwarfs my little one here. I have the larger deck, a larger bedroom and bathroom, and a bay window in what will become my office/spare room. There will be some lovely french doors leading to the back deck, so a certain someone will be able to monitor squirrel and bird activity to his heart's content.
Of course, there will be the adjustment period for the guys. But, I think they'll be OK once they see they can tear through the kitchen all the way to the front door without banging into a wall or staircase - they'll be pretty happy. I hope. When I moved back into this place in 2006 after the renovations, Mae whined for 2 days straight. Atticus was fine though. Once he figured out where the litter box and his food was, he was good.
The apartment downstairs will be cleaned from top to bottom before I move in, so *hopefully* there will be no residual dog smell to freak them out. She hasn't been too bad with the upkeep below, so it's not like it's in bad shape. I just worry about what you can't see...
Anyway - not going to think about that now. I have to start packing things up soon. Fun. Then there's the unpacking though!
Back and forth, back and forth... Can't for a minute say that things are boring these days.
"Cool, huh Mae?! What do you think about moving downstairs?!"
