And so it goes.

It's getting real.

The small things that keep reminding me who I am are starting to be packed up.  The shelves are getting bare.  I have help today, so I doing a few awkward bits and pieces today.  The yarn will go through the week.  I can move and stack that without assistance. 

The books I have here will go a little at a time.  I only have 2 book boxes here so before I can do more, I need to unpack some of the many books at the other end.  Problem is, all the shelves are here.  I anticipate a few piles before the week is done.

 By the end if the week, I hope to be done moving all the bits and pieces, so that only the furniture remains.  And the furniture goes in the truck on Saturday.  By Saturday night, I hope to be sleeping at the new place. 

By Saturday, I will be reunited with all my things, my books, my few pieces of furniture.  It is the grand sum of who I am. I'm kind of looking forward to feeling whole.

I am sitting here knitting when I should be packing and plying solitaire when I should be knitting.  I fear the miasma of moving has taken over. 

There isn't any place to put boxes.  Ughhhhhh

Painfully slow but

Things are progressing awfully slowly but there is an upside.  I did get a little knitting done this afternoon,

In between kids and puzzles and a nap.  I am really enjoying this yarn.   If I had a choice in using this and a dozen other things give me Three Irish Girls Felicity every time.

But much of my day wasn't kids or packing.  I went spinning this morning for the first time in a while and it was lovely.  I really really am enjoying getting out to spin in the company if a good friend.  It's such a pleasure watching things form on her wheel and even more amazing, form on mine.  I am working on the first of two braids of Colour Affection Polwarth in a wonderful brilliant yet softly variable coloured scarlet.  I'm kind of interested to see if it works with the red I spun earlier in the fall.   I just have a feeling.

Anyway morning comes early and I have dreams to dream and well, you know.  Stuff.
