This has been one crazy week!
First I want to show you the baby bib that I finished knitting! It is technically Thing Three... and it came out well IMO. It was very quick to make... it only took slow knitting beginner me a week!
I made sure to pick a machine washable yarn (who wants to hand wash a bib with food all over it??) and I found the cutest little button. The bib itself is adjustable since I made three button holes. : )
Monday, which was a Federal holiday so I had the day off, I went to see Confessions of a Shopaholic with a friend. On a side note, loved the movie... and have read the entire series of books! So anyway, totally unexpectedly, we got a call from the bank. They accepted the offer we put on a HOUSE! We are going to have a HOUSE! Look how cute it is:
AND it has a nice sized backyard for the dogs to run and play in! There is no house on one side of it because there is a preserve easement where they are not allowed to build so there are lots of trees! Yay!! We are supposed to close on March 9th... *fingers crossed*
And last, I started my new job.
I had been working for the National Park Service for almost four years but now I work for U.S. Fish and Wildlife. I'm still doing a lot of the same things but I get paid more and it's much closer to home. It was very hard for me to say goodbye to all my fabulous co-workers at Timucuan Preserve but I hope to make as many good friends at the new job too.
Now I have to figure out what to wear every morning... no more uniform!
ps. For those who checked out our Valentine's Day gift, Clementine has settled in quite nicely. Uni was pretty angry at first about the idea of another cat in the house and she spent the first few days staring and hissing and even swatting at her once in awhile. Now they have become buddies. They chase each other and wrestle and run through the cat tube we have in the living room. We have even caught them sleeping next to each other on the couch multiple times. Hooray!
Yes... I live in a zoo. All the more reason to be excited about the house!!
