A Place for Everything


In anticipation of getting Pup out of the pen this weekend I started emptying shelves and cabinets that will all have to be moved back into place. Everything is getting piled up on the dining room table for now. 

I can't wait to get all those bookcases and cabinets out of the hallway. They've been a catch all for all sorts of junk. It's really gotten out of control. I've gotten so used to living like this that I'm not even sure where to begin. 

It's hard to believe that I am still living in the chaos of the big kitchen remodel that started 3 years ago. I've been using all the boxes and dining room furniture to pen in Pup. She kept a close eye on all the activity and I kept a close eye on her. She's used to me moving boxes of junk from place to place. It seems like all I do anymore.  

Yesterday she seemed a bit wobblier than she has been. Her limping was worse which is worrisome. Now that she's feeling better she may be overdoing it but I've been literally sitting next to her 24/7 to make sure she doesn't. We may not actually get out of that pen as soon as I hope but I'm getting ready just in case. I'm going stir crazy sitting here looking at all the work I have to do to get my house back in order. I'm going to have to pull up old photos to see where everything goes. I've forgotten. 

After dropping a very heavy flashlight on my toe (big ouch), I gave up for the day and went back to sitting and knitting. Number 10 is coming together. When I have my mind on my projects I can just tune out the chaos around me. Today I need to figure out how to get my spinning wheel out in this mess because tomorrow is the first stage of the Tour and it all begins in Copenhagen this year. 


  1. Looks like soon things could come together! Have fun spinning.

  2. I don't know how you do it. I would lose my mind knowing what I want to get accomplished. Although, when I have my knitting needles in hand, I'm entertained very easily. Pup looks very content in her pen and I hope the wobbles are just very minor setback.

  3. I just had to move my sewing machine away from the window so Dave could paint the window frame. It reminded me that the sewing studio is a disaster and I really need to get in there and reorganize.

    Pup looks soooo cute watching you from her little pillow fort.

  4. Take one day at a time and one small section at a time to avoid getting overwhelmed. Love Pup curiosity.

  5. It's hard to get your bearings again-focus on just one area and then get it done-each finished little bit will add up! Pup is going to have to learn to pace herself! She looks like she has her eye on you!
