Better yet ... What's my name, where am I? What a week! We packed, packed, and oh, did I mention we packed? I thought there was so little left to do as the weekend approached. Then Saturday we started on the garage! Years ago we had custom cabinets built for our fly fishing and camping equipment. It has always been well organized, but we decided we needed to go through a lot of the stuff we haven't used for a while. Then there was all the gardening stuff, and Mr. Squash's workbench full of tools and computer equipment. Whew! By the end of yesterday we finally finished! It was a good feeling, but oh, so tiring! All that is left now is a portion of the kitchen, both full baths (minimal), and odds and ends.
Tomorrow morning Mr. Squash is having cataract surgery on one eye. We wanted to finish the bulk of the packing so we could concentrate on this, and we did! I go back to work in the afternoon for more training of my replacement, have Thursday and Friday off, then a partial day (I hope) on Monday - my last day! Tuesday I take off for the Squash House with Sophie. Mr. Squash stays behind to be here while the movers load up, then he joins me on Wednesday.
Believe it or not, up until last week I've been working on a little Fall stitchery in the evenings. I got this from Karen at Farmhouse Woolens. Instead of using the darker muslin that came with it, I'm using a distressed muslin that I got from the Fat Quarter Shop. I apologize that it isn't ironed! I word normally photograph a project fully ironed and neat for viewing, but the iron is packed! The sun, moon, scarecrow hat and leaves will all be wool! I think I'll make it into a pillow. It's adorable! I'll be sure to show you the finished project, which at this point will probably be early next year!
I hope to have another post or two before we leave. I dearly miss keeping up with all of you, but it won't be much longer until life returns to normal!
