Taking Off

I opened United’s in-flight magazine to the crossword puzzle before take-off, as usual, and noted 1. ACROSS. Do you see it? It's a four-letter word for 'Make an aran sweater.’

Good Sign I

KNIT, KNIT!

The sunset from the air was beautiful but I was so excited to land and see Rock Star for the second time in less than a week and to sign the papers for our house.

Good Sign II

We waited and waited and waited all weekend for the big day. Finally, we got the keys.

New Home

We moved lots of heavy stuff and were so. tired.

Tired

…and maybe a little wary.

Wary

We spilled our first wine that first night…

Spill

…and then settled down next to our first fire with our newly-felted slippers.

First Fire

YAY YAY YAY!! A house is not YOUR house until you spill in it.

Poor Teak. I hope he comes out of the box soon. Luckily, it's clear that Barley knows he's home.

Here's to many more happy nights in front of the fireplace!

wow - I hear you on the big move. We still have unpacked boxes, from last April!

Your fluffy striped kitty and big puppy look very loveable ;o) The kitty seems well-adjusted, sitting in that box with all that moving going around!
