Thanksgiving, Part 1... and STASH!

First, some pre-moving things. Here is the Halloween SP gift that simply amazed me: Purple bat, roving, and happy spooky socks! It got to me right before we moved. Such pretty yarn, and did I mention the purple bat bowl? Oh, and there was also this purple bat bowl! Yes, I love it.
The chocolate didn't make it into the picture, though... yum.

Second, I am grateful that we have a roof over our heads, and that our new home is warm and cozy. I need to get a water heater replaced and the phone isn't connected yet, but other than that, everything works and is making us happy. Some pictures of the fuzzies in their new lair coming up!

Before I show pictures of our new place and our Thanksgiving dinner, though, I wanted to share why I need to be on a stash diet. As we were getting ready to move, it all came together in one place. Yarn stash, fiber stash, everything. Doesn't look so bad, right?

That's because you're only seeing the satellites. Here is the Main Attraction. Aaaah!

The scary thing? After I took these pictures, I found more yarn.
I need to go on a yarn diet.

Settling In

We are settling into our new place. No phone or internet yet, many things are still in boxes, and somehow, my socks ended up in storage. And then there are the cats. They are having a high old time with the crinkle paper the movers used to wrap our kitchen stuff. But the fuzzies are having a hard time with the bedroom forbidden zone. Now that we no longer have a basement, we have to be careful about allowing them access, or they'll expect to sleep with us all the time. And there is no sleeping with Merlin. He cuddles to the left, he cuddles to the right, he cuddles around and around. All night long. Not that we're getting that much sleep anyway... Merlin has been very yowly and talky of late. Happy but vocal.

Pictures coming as soon as I get my computer set up. Stay tuned for knitting, cooking and new home decor!
