Welcome, friends and visitors!!

Taking a break from unpacking...

I'm so sorry to have neglected my audience (the few, the proud) the past few days. This moving thing is pretty time-consuming.

But in other news, it's gloriously Autumn! Thanks to some early cold snaps, the leaves are gold, red, copper, and green. The air is cooler, damper. The dusty grassy summer smell is gone, replaced with a soft earthy smell. The sky in the morning is a melting terrine of blue, lavender, pink, and yellow. The sky at dusk is rich blues, from palest watery blue to lush dark navy. I wish my knitting friends could knit me a scarf of the sunset, with stars poking through its loops and cables. I love this time of year.

I wanted to show some pictures of the new place, but I've misplaced my cable that attaches to the camera. Never fear, I WILL find it. Meanwhile, enjoy this lovely autumn view from the Internet.
What does the world look like where you are, in Autumn?

Home sweet home.

Can I just say, we love our new house?? We've spent the past couple of nights here, and are digging it. Oh, except for the cat. He's spending all his time under the comforter on our bed. We love our east-facing bedroom window, from which we awoke with the sunrise over the mountains, this morning. Gorgeous. We love our carpet. We love our shower. We love our kitchen. We love doing laundry in our VERY OWN washer and dryer!!

But the work continues as we unpack, sort, and - yes, still - move items from the old place to the new. Today I moved our clothes. Although I am a bit of a clothes-horse, I really didn't think I had that many items of clothing. I was wrong. So wrong. So now that all the clothes are here, I need to go and organize our closet. Ah, home sweet home.

I'll try to get some pictures up soon. (I found my camera, so that's if I can find my cd's, I'll have music to unpack to.)
