New city, new airport, returning a rental car, early morning flight … The alarm went off at 4:30am. Ugh!
The movers arrived yesterday and my sister and I worked like crazy unpacking and organizing Mom’s things. Mom also did a lot of work in the kitchen – my least favorite room to work on during a move! We even got a couple of Mom’s quilts hung.
This morning, Maureen dropped me off at the rental car place and I drove to Charlottesville where I’ll spend the night before flying out early tomorrow morning. The views of the mountains in this part of the state (Virginia) are beautiful … Even more so than my photo taken from the interstate scenic lookout shows.
Is any move complete without a trip to Walmart?! (Or Target if you’re anti-Walmart).
Adam and Bree were in an accident a week or so ago, luckily they were both OK but his car didn’t make it … Yesterday they replaced it. Caleb and Bree are getting so big, can’t wait to see them again in March.
I packed up the car at Mom’s house (the house I grew up in)
Someone commented on the quilt in my last post – it’s one Mom made for my brother and his wife years ago (I quilted it for her).
We’re staying at my brother’s house for 2-3 days before we head west and after I waited for the (no show) cleaning crew at Mom’s and returned her cable boxes, we’re sitting and knitting.
Mom and I are sitting in the den knitting while the movers load up the truck.
Mom’s knitting a scarf/shawl – she started with the Be Simple Variations that I’ve made a couple times but after a little while, she decided she would rather try the original one without the eyelets. Both shawls are free patterns on Ravelry – click either link to go to the pattern pages on Ravelry.
