What have I been doing?

Backyard

We have been trying to get our backyard ready for a brunch that is going to be here the day after Annie and Tim's wedding. So, we felt we ought to pretty it up in the backyard. We had to strip all the old gunk off of the Teak furniture. We then oiled it all to make it look like new. Landscaper coming to prune and clean didn't hurt either.

Sissy's Shawl


Besides being caught up in wedding stuff and feeling nervous because I feel like there should be stuff I am doing to help, I have knit my sister a shawl because I love her. Not only that but she has made me all my jewlery for the wedding (it is beautiful).

So, the countdown begins this weekend. The wedding is one week away. When it is done and Annie and Tim are safely sipping exotic drinks, I will start to think about all the stuff I want to get rid of in this house in case we move to Scotland. Oh, and think about getting the house ready to sell.

Thank god for Viognier.

Oh man, that table refinishing stuff looks too much like work. :-) The shawl turned out great! If it wasn't for your sister, I'd try to con you out of it.

Viognier rocks. Maybe I should go pour a glass since it's afternoon somewhere in the world.

My move will be done in mid-July. If you need help packing/sorting at that point, I'd be glad to come visit. I've also helped move my parents and my sweetie's parents, so I'm getting really good at it. I'll bring chocolates to go with the wine ;-)

Good luck with the wedding!
