View from the back yard...

This evening after dinner, Mr. SABLE told me that there was a hot air balloon passing over. I found my camera and snapped a quick picture. The camera gave me an error message: No Card. Back in the house and found the card.

Just in time.

In knitting news, today at Last Saturday Knitting I finished some socks I promised a fellow Raveler last spring. I hope to get those mailed in the next day or two. It was wonderful just to go to Last Saturday Knitting because last month we were so deep in the thick of things there was no way I could go. And I haven't made it to any late nights at The Sow's Ear in months, either.

Look for the new online issue of Knitcircus on Aug. 4. I have a pattern for men in there that I'm pretty pleased with. Teaser pics coming soon.

In non-knitting news, we are free of our off-site storage lockers for the first time in 5 years. It's amazing how much money we spent over that time keeping stuff. Some of the stuff was worth it, but a lot of it probably wasn't.

The Light at the End of the Tunnel?

We've been insanely busy since the middle of June. We're mostly moved to the new house, but there's all kinds of stuff to sift through at the old house. A lot of it is junk, but not all, so it makes it hard to just shovel it all into the dumpster with wild abandon. Yes, we did get a dumpster.

Word to the wise: every five years pretend that you are going to move and go through your possessions ruthlessly.

We really do seem to be in the home stretch now, but there's an awful lot of stuff still left to deal with. So expect more dead air around here for at least a couple more weeks.
