Flowers and decor and yarn, oh my!

Casey and I made it back from our trip -- we drove almost twelve hours on Thursday, but it really wasn't all that bad. Case is a very easy traveling companion! We had decided to make Saturday our official Valentine's Day because I was so sick on the actual day. We joked about Casey bringing me medicine instead of flowers.

Well, folks, that husband of mine walked in the house on Saturday afternoon with a dozen multi-colored roses! They are the most beautiful flowers I've seen, so gorgeous in fact that I spent close to an hour yesterday afternoon taking almost one hundred digital photos of them! I had forgotten how enjoyable still life photography was, but I don't think I would have stopped except that I ran out of room on my digital card. Then I had so much fun showing all the photos to Case on the TV screen last night, and he oohed and aahed along with me. Ideally, we would like to use a lot of the photos to decorate a room in our house -- yes, I said OUR HOUSE.

We are in the process of buying our first house, but won't move in until June. Things aren't final, but they're headed that way (the For Sale sign has been taken down). There is so much thought and figuring and asking and deciding that goes into a thing like this, but it all seems to be working fairly well, thankfully. Buying a house is something that seemed to be so far in the future, but it is here and now. And it is quite exciting, I must say.

And now I will jump from one very big topic to a very small topic: knitting. I found a project to start after my Valentine Heart Cloth. Woohoo! I was so excited to find this Northern Lights Wrap. Yarn can get pretty expensive, though, so I have only ordered six skeins of ten so far, and just figured I could start on it and take my time. After all, spring is nearly here, so I don't really expect to use it until next winter. Ten skeins of yarn sounds like a lot, and if you'll check out the link you'll see that the scarf, or wrap, is 12 x 70 inches! I want to post pictures of the beautiful Moonlight Mohair Glacier Bay and Trellis Ocean yarn (that came in the mail Friday from Discount Yarn before I begin, so hopefully I can do that pretty soon!
