I'm still here

Wow. I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted. I've been cameraless most of the summer, with brief moments of it working perfectly...


And then totally dead again. Being cameraless means that there aren't as many random quickie photos for me to blog about. I've also been severely slacking on my knitting. I haven't knit a stitch since Thursday and that was the first time I had touched it almost a week. I'm trying to finish a hooded scarf before the end of the month for a friend's mom. I really need to get on that one! It's been my traveling project, but car knitting hasn't been very appealing to me lately.

It's been a busy summer. Got a new job - for all of 3 weeks. Now I'm hunting again. We signed a lease on a new place on Friday. I'll be living in the next town over and leaving Boulder's odd little bubble for the first time in 4 years. Bug (and Vince) have moved to New York, so my wee doggie love is gone which was heartbreaking beyond belief. Luckily, at the new place, I can get a Shiba face and have fur everywhere again. I've been hiking a lot, which is wonderful. We did 2 hikes this week, one on Labor Day that was about 10-11 miles, and then one on Friday that was about 6-7. It's been great getting into RMNP so often. That $80-annual-any-National-park-pass has already paid for itself.

September is my 10-year knitting anniversary. Since I'm moving, I've had a lot of interaction with the stash, which is always interesting. There are things that I've found that I can instantly match up with the idea of what it was going to become and others just make me tilt my head like a confused puppy. Our new place isn't all that large, so I'm thinking I'm going to end up having to get a small storage unit somewhere. I don't want to live in a crowded apartment again after being in this tiny place for 2 years.

I'm off to pack more! Most of the stash is in the car right now and I need to drop it off at the storage place we have right now for the contents of my place. Sadly, move out/in dates didn't line up well, so I'll be living out of a suitcase at Blaine's until our place is ready.

Happy anniversary! Hope the rest of packing/moving goes smoothy!

Thanks for checking in on me! It was a very hectic few weeks.
