I Wish I Had Staff

For some reason, we keep running out of boxes.

Mr. Nosey came around to see what's up.

Or perhaps he's concerned his meal ticket is moving out.

This kind of mess doesn't mesh with my personality. At. All. I can't find the cat's treats in all this mess!

More of the same--different angle.

Tonight's comic relief. This was a Christmas gift I've waited 3 months to use.
(really? all ages are appropriate for Lewis Black? has he cleaned up his act? I hope not!)

I haven't missed a single class. Yesterday, most of us attached our sleeves and began the yoke. I messed up the color legend after I had a glass or two of pinot noir last night. I realized it this morning and I'm going with my alcohol induced mistake. I don't have the heart to tink 1,000 stitches. It is what it is. Next Saturday, ready or not, this sweater will have an intimate run-in with a sharp pair of scissors. Pinot noir may need to be involved.

There never seems to be enough boxes. Enjoy your night out,and I love the sweater. Can't wait to hear how you get on with it next week

the sweater is gorgeous! i'm worried about mr nosy...he has another place to call home and just comes over to say hi? will you be moving far away? maybe he'll be one of those amazing animals who shows up on the front door no matter how far you've gone :)

Oh, no. You're going to miss your feline friend when you move. Make sure he "accidentally" goes to sleep in one of those boxes...
Love your sweater.

The sweater is turning out so well...I can't see any problem with your colors. Only you know.
The boxes are being filled. Maybe Mr Nosy could just happen to get shut up in one on the way out? Oh, I see that Quiltluver had the same idea...great minds.

Sounds like your doing a great job! The sweater is lush!So talented! True about the boxes though. I know of people you pay big bucks for boxes they have lying in the garage. But they are getting hard to find! If I was living by you I would gladly give you a helping hand but all i have is this. Keep truckin!

Oh man I hope I never have to move again, except to my final resting place. It is worth it though. I am glad you are moving up instead of out and giving it up. Love the sweater. Blessings

Fitting in a night out is required.

Don't box the kitty! Looks like he is curious about the strange happenings.

The common wish we have At The Farm is staff.

Hang in there, you are closer than you were.

gad, you are superwoman.

Rositta said...

I guess we're all on the same track, Mr. Mocha Latte should move with you. The sweater is gorgeous...ciao

The boxes bring back memories of the wall of boxes we had when moving 4 years ago after 20 years in the same house - we had so much stuf i was dejunking for ages before the move and then again when I unpacked - now 4 years lataer should do a dejunk again before it gets to bad.Jumper ( sweather ) looks fanastic.

Brenda said...

I agree with Rositta. He should go with you. Wow....you have a lot accomplished!

Renie Burghardt said...

Oi Veh, Rudee, I don't envy you either! Poor kitty will sure miss you. But just think, you'll be able to get a new doggie in your new house.

The sweater looks beautiful,to me.

Good luck with the next phase. Have some meds for aches and pains, ready!

Hugs,

Renie

There are never enough boxes! Good luck with the move.

Oh I think after seeing your boxes and remembering our last few moves, I plan on dying in this house. Love your sweater! It's beautiful.

The Crusty Crone said...

The downside of moving.... packing it all up! (shudder) May the moving fairy sprinkle miracle dust all over your endeavors.

Good luck with everything.

Miss T said...

I think I'd need the pinot noir to deal with all those boxes.

Sandy said...

I haven't had to pack and move in 25 years, yikes! If all goes well and we actually list and sale this house this year I'm going to be painfully reminded again of the moving process.

hahah(my word verification is BUTCALP...being as you are a nurse, what might that be......hehe.
