The Big Move

FINALLY, we have moved!  This is what we were doing two weekends ago:

We, with the help of great friends, moved the entire rest of the house into the home we've been waiting to occupy since last October.   I enjoy unpacking for the reason that I get to organize everything and put it where it needs to go.  This is what we did last weekend:

We cleaned the other house to get it ready for our new tenant.  Yes, we are now "Slum Lords" as Kevin would say.  It truly was an answer to prayer after the house was not selling in this terrible market.  We are very excited and feel really good about the whole thing.  

Tish came by the other day and brought me a house warming gift.

Isn't it great!!!  She did a great job!  We hung it up in our foyer right before you enter the living room.  

Right now we are trying to get accustomed to more space.  Sometimes I lose Kevin in the house; whereas before we could each be at one end of the house and still talk to each other.

Another Pair

These are socks I made from Favorite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave.  I love the camo colors of this yarn.  It stinks though that I have many many months before I can actually wear them.

 We went to another Ranger's game last week.  Free tickets and dollar hot dog night!  Yeah!  This is what I worked on during the game to keep my mind off how cold I was.  It was pretty chilly after the sun went down.

Socks are great knitting for sporting events.  Oh, and the Ranger's won.

This past weekend we went to The Dump in Dallas.  Great resale furniture store!  For the most part, it was really nice furniture.  Of course we did not buy anything, but we did spend a while looking at their vast selection of rugs.  

Here is Kevin modeling our favorite rug.  It was a little over $2000, which really wasn't bad for the size and quality.  It's a little big.  Don't think we could fit it in our house, but it sure was beautiful.
