We arrived in Fairfax last Wednesday afternoon. What a long drive! But also pretty fun. We stayed two nights with my sister and family in Minnesota, stayed a night with my SIL and family in Indiana and while there got to experience a tornado warning, lots of wind and about 10,000 lightening strikes in an hour. "C" and I also went to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and took a tour of the track and wandered around there for a few hours. We both had a lot of fun there and "C" picked up some memorabilia.
Tomorrow, we will actually be able to move into our new townhouse. I am so excited to be back in our 'own' place. I have a general knowledge of where I want most of the stuff to go, but it will be better once things are in place, I think. The plants all looked like they survived the move, although I haven't taken them out of their moving tubs yet. I did have to transplant the aloe while at my sister's. It looked as if it had gotten sun-burnt so I transplanted the little ones and rearranged the tub placement in the car and it seems to have survived so far.
"ES's" favorite place to check out is the local library. A library card is one of the first things he got when he moved here. A couple of days ago we went and I picked up a couple of knitting books to read in my spare time. Surprise, surprise!
In the past few days I have even been able to get some spinning done with the drop spindles I brought with me. It felt good to spend even a little time participating in my favorite hobbies.
Happy knitting & spinning.
