Slow day (month) at the office . . .

Not much crafting going on these days, unless you count packing to move, which it could be argued is a craft in itself.
"pantry" waiting to be packed.
There had been a bit of knitting to keep me busy when vegging in front of hulu at night (socks, since they take up almost no space when it's time to live out of my car). . .
part-way down the first knee-sock.
probably should have started them a little wider at the top since my calves are not-so-small.
good thing the yarn has elastic in it!
And some baking, if only to use up pantry items so as not to need to pack them away for the next month. . .
zucchini-lemon muffins
(from the King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary Cookbook)
Oh, and keeping up with the 30-days of photographs challenge - I'm half-way through! Click on the tab above (or here) to see the latest pictures.

I've come to terms with the fact that I will be "homeless" for the next month. I'll be house-sitting, staying at my parents, and traveling to Maine for the last bit of summer vacation, but then I'll be guest-rooming. I will definitely have a space (or spaces) to live, but will mostly be living out of the car. With the dog. So, I've had to get creative about what I'll need, and what clothes I should keep out since I'll have a few more weeks of civilian life before I need teacher-clothes. It's a good thing I teach in a casual atmosphere, where in the winter ski clothes are more than acceptable in the classroom - for students AND teachers.

I've already gone two years without a lot of the things I had when I was in Maine for five years (being a dorm parent in a small, shared apartment does that for you) so I can easily go another month with even less - but I'm ready to get settled and have space in which to put things (or to leave empty if I desire!). Soon. . . soon. . .


  1. So maybe I missed an announcement but have you/are you buying a house? It would make sense with your recent Pinterest pins. What fun!

    1. No (official) announcement yet, but I'm in the process of buying a house!
