Home is where we are
Wednesday, Hubby, T2, and I moved into the apartment our insurance company found for us. Thursday T2 and I picked up Jack (the dog). Friday T1 came home. It is wonderful having us all under the same roof again.
The apartment is very nice (think high end hotel grade). It is furnished, has a pool, and is very close to home and friends. It isn't our house, but it is already becoming home. We have all been having trouble sleeping, hopefully that will get better here.
There were a lot of faux plants when we got there. All of which are now in the top kitchen cabinets (the ones I can't reach). We were able to rescue a few of our house plants and now those are scattered around the apartment.
I've been knitting a couple of things. Hubby's other sock for one and my "sticky" knitting. I finished the black Simple Joys Shawl and a dishcloth but have yet to get back to the Linen Tunic. I've also started and discarded two mandala place mats. That idea my not actually happen. I love the yarns (Paton's Grace and Cotton Classic) and the pattern is pretty straight forward. Although pretty, both seem too thin for placemats. I am considering Sugar & Cream but may let the idea simmer for a bit. I can't keep buying yarn and not using it. One, we can't afford it and two, it does not hold with my plan to be more purposeful about my yarn purchases.
