Tuesday Things Thanks and Timeouts

Hi All,


Just needed to blog a bit to distract myself. In 4.5 hours we will be signing for the house. EGADS!!! I will show you this picture DS2 took as we drove by repeatedly one day a few weeks back.

I have better pics but right now as it is not officially ours..... but that is the house on the right and the barn on the left. Later in the week I will show different pics, but also not in too much detail for the world is a wacky place at times.

We did the final walk through last night and suddenly the house looked like the 108 years old that it is but we concluded it has not been loved. Hardwood floors need moisture, years and years of paint on woodwork need stripping, and as many have said it needs to be decorated by us, if nothing else we definitely have a sense of style. So I will update with knitting pics later as tomorrow is a day of emptying storage unit. Since this is my first time doing this, is it rude to take my knitting along???? heehee

Dear Cheryl,

I've been emailing you, but I guess my messages got lost in the spam folder...
Just to let you know, your package will be on it's way later today. According to the news, today is the last day to post something and still get it delivered before Christmas. I sure hope they are right.

And just what is the Knut going to put in her barn? Can't wait to see the inside (of the house that is) and watch as you put your stamp on the place.
