We spent the day loading up the truck, and running multiple trips, up and down 3 flights of stairs with lots and lots of boxes. Not fun. Someone please remind me to never move in to the third floor in a house from the early 1800's ever again. Thanks.

We had our friend Jake help with the heavier stuff, and the matress, that had to be bent like a taco. Luckily it was easier getting out than in. Speaking of tacos, we're having tacos on the floor, followed by neapolitan ice cream. I don't think I've ever celebrated thanksgiving, so that's OK with me.

Just a few more things to pack up, and we're heading out tomorrow morning. It's gonna be a looong drive.

I finished some new paintings, and started making Christmas stockings, and also an advent calender.

I know I promised to do a water color tutorial, I wish I could right now, but it will have to wait til I'm moved in and settled.

I also knitted a scarf for my mom, I love the pattern, but I wish I would have picked a darker color. Oh well.

The pattern can be found here.

Alright, well. I'm about to do some more cleaning, and some last minute laundry.
I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving!!!

The paintings are amazing. A water color tutorial would be great! I'm so bad at using them. I always make a huge mess.

Happy Taco Day! *fnis*
Det ser ut som et fantastisk garn du har brukt! Mykt og skinnende!

Lykke til med kjøreturen! Tenk så gøy det blir å pakke ut alt når du kommer frem!
