Hi there folks — just a quick note as I am about to leave for Illinois to help my daughter move. The U-Haul is all packed and ready to go — just a few more things to put into the car. It is about a 12 hour drive from here so we won’t actually arrive until tomorrow . We were supposed to leave yesterday, but because of a glitch in communication her apartment isn’t going to be ready until Wednesday so we had an extra day at home. It was a real blessing to have that day — I am not sure that we would have been ready without it since we just got home Saturday evening from our vacation. The house is a disaster zone with all the comings and goings and the piles of things that that creates. When I get back I will have lots of cleaning to do, but I will now have two extra rooms — our daughter has been living with us for the last 4 years so it is going to be a big change for both of us. I am excited about seeing her new place and helping her get settled and I am excited about having the house for just hubby and me — she is also very excited to be back out on her own again.
There are 2 yarn stores very close to her apartment — I will definitely be checking them out while we are there. I found a great yarn store in Barrie, Ontario on our way home from the beach — looking forward to going back next summer (to both the beach and the store : ).
I will leave you with some pictures taken in Montreal last summer while I was on a trip with my daughter. I think a post is always nicer when it has some pictures.
