Goodbye vacation...

After all the excitement of the last two days, today was a day to just chill at home. Normally, that means doing nothing but knitting - but I got a bit of a bug up my butt about my TV, and just had to do something about it.

You see - I've been very lucky, and gotten most of my furniture as hand-me-downs. My TV stand was a large TV/storage unit that began life at my parents old house when I was a teenager. It survived two household moves, as well as me shuffling it around the living room every six months or so, but it was starting to look a little beat up and well.. crooked and wobbly. I've been wanting to get something a little smaller and more streamlined for a while, and as fortune would have it - a coworker was getting rid of just the type of stand I wanted. I brought it home, and it's been sitting in my living room, waiting for Dave to have a spare moment to switch everything over.

He was going to do it tonight when he got home from work... but like I said, I got a bit of a bug up my butt... so I did it all myself. (And I didn't even have a Wonder Woman costume!)

However, I wasn't able to move the old unit to the basement, so I pushed it into the kitchen, out of the way until Dave could attend to it...
  .... much to the delight of the boys. They don't often get a chance to look out this window. And it was warm enough that it was open today.

I also had a craving for cream cheese frosting...
so I made some cupcakes to go along with it (carrot-apple cupcakes!).

Despite that, there has been a little bit of knitting....

A new shawl design in Barn Cat Transitions.... you can see I'm just starting to get to the middle shade of  pink. Mom put a few Transitions in the shop today if you want to knit something similar!

And so marks the end of my vacation... tomorrow is back to the grind. Sigh....
