I've learned a new way to stay sane...

Don't try to buy a house. ;-)

Hopefully the saga, as it has become, will be over soon. Then I might share more details. For now, I'll just say that we have to come up with 2x the amount of money by Friday/Monday than we thought we were going to have to.

Man does that cramp our style.

Labor Day Weekend

Now that we're nearing the weekend after...How was your Labor Day Weekend?

Mine was fairly uneventful. The hub was at PAX Fri/Sat/Sun. I spent time working on a gift, to be shown off later. It's a knitting gift - a sweater for a friend. I'm liking how it's turning out so far! While knitting on Sat, I revisited the first season of Gilmore Girls. ;-)

I also did a bit of cooking... Starting with these pie pumpkins, from my parent's garden.

They were cooked, processed, and frozen, for making pies and bread. Yum.

The cooking continued with a batch of zucchini bread, and then a pot full of beets, also from my parent's garden.

Sunday I got to hang out with a friend & knit for most of the day - she has a fantastic knitting machine that she got for a bargain at an estate sale & was showing me how it works. Dangerous!

Monday was a lounging day. We shopped, hung out, etc.

Also - My other half showed me this link the other day - seems that one of my favorite things, Ravelry, is so cool it's showing up in his part of the (tech) world!
