This is the only ball of thread and the only hook I kept out when packing. I'm WAY ahead of schedule with the packing and had to stop before I packed everything up we need to live our everyday lives. It's still a while before we leave.
I haven't crocheted a stitch in weeks! I caught myself staring at this yarn and pattern that's been sitting out on the counter for at least a week. I think I may be ready to start it.
Hello, Mr. Shy Turtle.
I watched this grackle mess around in this water for quite a while one morning. We had to leave the house with the dogs for three hours while the inspection was being done on our house. We sat at the park for awhile and then went and got lunch at Whataburger. I had a big greasy Patty Melt. It was so good though! I convinced myself I still did pretty well since I had no fries and no Coke. :)
I made this potato salad this morning so it would be nice and cold to have with dinner tonight. Last night the Captain grilled some boneless chicken breasts that had been marinated in Lea & Perrin's Garlic and Balsamic marinade. It was so good! We have plenty leftovers for tonight. I highly recommend the marinade that comes already in a big bag. All you do is rip it open, plunk in your meat, and refrigerate until you're ready to grill or bake. He grilled 8 big breasts so we'd have leftovers for lunches or whatever.
You may be sick of hearing about this move and the whole process, but it's my life right now so that's what you get. I think I'm going to start a handwritten journal about it the day we start on the road. It will be fun to read through for me years down the road.
I know I have been ignoring your questions for details, but that's been on purpose. I'll talk details later. Right now I don't feel comfortable doing that in public for my own reasons.
The buying and selling of houses has come to an end as of today. No more worrying about inspections and such. Everything is a done deal except the actual physical move. I'm so glad for that part to be over. It's a lot of stress even if it did go very smoothly and quickly for us.
Now we wait for the Captain's last day of work later this month. Hopefully I'll be back to regular blogging until the final few days before we leave. Talk to you again soon!
