Moving Pictures: Installment #1

What a mess! This is my apartment when it was almost all packed up.

Half of the amazing moving team...Peter and John take a break once the truck is packed with all my stuff (whew!). Not pictured is John's Mom who also did a bunch of packing, cleaning, and dog wrangling (Callie wasn't so happy when we put her in her crate so we could move all my stuff out).

Me, John, and Callie all ready to go! More pictures to come...

I'm here!!

So I'm all moved into my house in Athens and it is wooooonderfuuuullll! =) I'll post some pictures soon...but right now most of the rooms are messy and full of boxes ;)

I'm also so excited because Brenna and Robin are visiting on their way to New Jersey...and Callie (John's dog) and Rogue (Bren and Robin's dog) are best puppy pals...they've been playing and playing and playing all day long (and now they're conked out on the couches ;) ) I'm going to have to get a picture of them together because it is too, too cute.

that's some hardcore knitting...

On a totally different note, I think I heard the Indian version of "The Thong Song" today...craziness

The few, the proud...

...the plants that haven't died yet ;)

The packing is going pretty well...quicker than I expected (well...I say that now...let's see how I feel on Friday) ;)

Goodbye, Farewell, Auf wiedersehen, Adieu

So it's really getting close to moving time...I'm excited, and then I'm sad (for reasons, see below), and then I feel like complaining at length about the evils of packing and moving...

Thankfully, I have some wonderful friends who've made sure that I felt loved before I left. There was the cookout on Saturday night with my friends from church, and then my coworkers took me out to Outback Steakhouse for dinner tonight. They were all so sweet and I hate to leave them. I've started a campaign to get all the cool, nice people to move to Ohio with me...but I'm not sure how far that one will get ;)

And, in other important news, I finished the Deathly Hallows on Saturday...loved it. Won't say anymore.

Waiting waiting waiting...

for my Harry Potter book to get here...

Thursday, July 19, 2007


Well, all the really hard stuff we had to do for the county fair is over (taking exhibits, getting them judged etc.) so just a few more days of that left! =)

I've been making a new baby sock pattern that I'm liking a lot...it's also good that it's a new pattern...I'm bad for getting stuck in a rut and making the same thing over and over. Unlike my sister, Erin, who tries all sorts of patterns and designs and is an awesome, incredible knitter. She also just started making baby socks...I'm trying to step it up a little bit so I can maybe keep up with her ;) My other sister, Brenna, is also awesome and incredible, but she doesn't knit baby socks, so I'll have to talk about her awesomeness in another post ;)

Still here...

the county fair is going...and I'm tired, but I'm home this early and it wasn't insanely hot, so I figure that makes for a good day (at least when it comes to the county fair)

I can't wait for this weekend (just 3 1/2 more days of work!!) and Harry Potter comes out (hooray!)

Another wild week

But first, a picture I took this morning at the UK Arboretum

And now, the BIG news...I got a new job! Starting in August, I'll be working at Ohio University! Let the apartment searching, packing, and moving begin ;)

Such a busy weekend

In addition to knitting up a storm, I also got to go to the Estill Arts Council picnic (beautiful weather, good food, great people) and got a real tour of the county from two friends afterwards. So I was psyched to get to take some pictures! Here are my two favorites...

Random, pretty looking wildflower (anyone know what it is?)

The Fitchburg Furnace, an old iron furnace outside of town
