recap

Hello, blogosphere. I've barely had time to read blogs recently, much less post to mine.

Here is a brief recap of the past week and a half:

VACATION:
  • spent three great days in Portland, ME.
  • ate a fabulous meal at Arrows
  • am embroiled in a non-so-fabulous billing dispute with the hotel we stayed at. Grrr.
  • visited Edith and Edna and bought some fabric as a souvenir

LIFE:
  • on September 1, was promoted to new job at work. Same boss, pretty much the same job, just a more senior title, and some new responsibilities. Getting new computer tomorrow. Whole office moving to new location on September 25.
  • on September 4, Thom started a new job. Yay for full-time employment after grad school!
  • on September 9, we started to look for a house to buy. Wow! Overwhelming!!!
  • September 12 (today), Thom's birthday
  • September 16 (Saturday), synchro season starts back up for real.
CRAFT:
  • finished the Fountain Lace cardigan -- FO photos tomorrow, I hope
  • made 14 sets of stitch markers in a fit of misguided energy ... here are just a few of them ...



  • packed up all of the prizes from my MDK yarn giveaway, and a few of my swap packages too ... here's a before and after shot ...


  • Worked on the Baudelaire socks a bit.
  • Made a washcloth for charity.
  • Started Grandma's poncho, though not much of it yet ...
Hopefully, I'll be back soon.

  • Wow, that's a lot! I'm tired just thinking about it all.

    So ... where are you looking (if that's not too nosy)? There are some awfully nice houses for sale out our way .......
