Haven't been feeling it...

Well, I suppose worse things could happen. Yesterday, I managed to drop a hugge jug of ice tea on the floor. Most of it on the hardwood but some on the rug. Darn. While cleaning up the mess, I didn't notice the tea bag and it made it into the washing machine. Sigh, I suppose there are worse things then having kitchen towels smell like tea.
(Just a little background info, I came down with a cold on Tuesday, so I was in self pity mode.) After cleaning, I figured some yummy soup would make me feel better. And it did, but I had to fight with an embarrassingly simple to open container. It was a rough day.

And then I thought I lost my camera, but luckily I found it. It was just the universe trying to tell me I need to hurry up and clean up! But now that I have my camera, I can slack on my plans of tidying up (just kidding universe), and share these weekend pics with you.

This is me and Granny. She was visiting in San Diego so I drove down to meet up.

The little one is Sydney, her mom put her hair in puffs in my honor. It is my rugby hairdo. I gotta say, she pulls it off wonderfully. And the tall one is my cousin Mike (not the dad). He came down from LA. I still wonna know how he got the tall gene. (Look at granny, and she is still shrinking)
And of course, the kitties,... they really do get along. (Ophie won the fight for the boxes, I'm so proud of her)

Here's the story

It's been a long time, but I promised you my moving story. And to start off, take a look at these pics of moving day.
If you can't tell, those are bees. Lots and lots of bees. I heard the buzzing that morning, but kind of ignored. Figured it was something else or somewhere else. But when I got up, there was no doubt about it, it was right outside my window. Crap.
Luckily they were up high enough that I could walk underneath them and they were gone by the end of the day. So was I :)

Now I am in the new place. My new roomie also has a kitty, Thor. Him and Ophie had a rocky start, but now ... well, look for yourself. (As soon as blogger lets my upload that) They are friendly most of the time, but sometimes they have the lamest cat fights. They just wave their paws at eachother or come running from across the room, just to smack the other one's but and then run off. Entertainment for when I don't feel like grading.

As for knitting, not getting much done there. Just a few rows on my sock... (again, pics when blogger lets me upload)
