... & After

Ok to re-cap. Aug 24th we got the house and started moving in. I drove the 15' truck around town. Literally around town, to Ikea, to the apartment, to the new house, it was tricky.

Then Mom and Linda wanted a Picture of us in front of our new house. I think we look cute.

So after that alot of things have been going on.

Dad came up and we took out the old garden, for a reminder head to this old post.

Then a few weekends ago I got paint and painted up the office. It's a low VOC paint that is a nice gray green, sort of light mossy. Though as you can see the office (was going to be knitting place but it got high-jacked) isn't organized yet. That will be tomorrows project.

The rest of today is going to be spent on figuring out shots for a friends wedding, getting a tara-bit hard drive because I have way to many pictures on this little laptop, and doing laundry.

Oh and there will be some knitting as it is just about cool enough for HT to ware the sweater-vest he picked out, so I need to finish it. Though I'm going to have to find the Son of Stitch and Bitch book before I can.

I wonder which box it's in?

Checking in.

So, we are moved in. There are still boxes, but mostly things are where they should be.

Mom and Aunt Linda helped a ton with the move.

HT's family came up and helped put holes in the walls. It's ok, they are for the internets.

And today Dad is up helping out. We dug up the back yard. In the picture you see there is a dirt patch, that got tilled and is being used to house a rose bush and bulbs and compost, till we know what to do with them.

In the center there is a bushy patch. That was the last owners garden. It was over grown with weeds, trees and thistles. So we dug it up and used the dirt to level out the funny spots in the yard.

It timed out really well as we finished just as it started raining. So maybe in a while there will just be grass all over.

There's no knitting news right now as I've been taking a bit of a break, but oh there will be more soon. You can count on it.
