still here ...

Hmm, nearly 2 weeks since I posted. I'm still alive. Still knitting. Took pics. Lack time.

What's been keeping me busy? Work is busy. We moved offices. Have several very large meetings in the near future. One involves many high-level people. As in, multiple Nobel Prize winners. Oy.

Coaching. Lots of early season drama. Including one swimmer leaving tomorrow to fly to Colorado to have arthroscopic hip surgery. Lots of behind the scenes work needed to get the season off the ground. Head coach leaving the country for two weeks. Oy.

What else? Looking at houses. Lots of houses. Narrowing down the list. Looking some more. We think we like this one best. Should we make an offer? How much? Will it still be for sale by the time we decide if we should make an offer? Double oy.

Knitting. Yes, still knitting. Mostly on the drive to work (I'm the passenger). Lace socks not so good for busy times. Doing a bit of tinking too. Want to start some stockinette socks. But ... the List of 5 continues. I'm sticking to it!! Here's where it stands now...

  • Baudelaire socks for MIL's christmas gift -- finished the foot and heel on each, plus over half of one leg
  • Vest for Dulaan (all done but for the neck edging)
  • Cabled Seaman's scarf for FIL's Christmas gift. It will match the mittens I made him last year, and a hat that I made the year before.
  • a poncho for grandma
  • Denyse Schmidt potholders

So, finish one of thes and I can have my comfort knitting socks :)


  • There must be something in the air. Everyone seems to have a lot going on lately.

  • Make the offer. It's a great house with lots of good features for all your needs from now to eternity. Stop overthinking (and that goes for Thom too).

  • wow, i feel like everyone is buying a house but me! :) the market is just too expensive in NYC to get anything right now. we'll probably rent for at least 5 more years.

    i love the house though! from what little i can see, lots of light and cute. go for it!

  • Looks like a cute house. You can always put in a conditional offer and make up your minds after it's been inspected by a buildings inspector.

    Good luck with all the knitting projects.

  • Cute house. :) If you want to buy it, make sure to look at the siding and whatnot that is behind all those bushes. In some cases bushes like that trap moisture which can cause problems. Its not likely there'd be a problem, but you never know, and better safe than sorry. :)
