New Year ~ 2010

hello world!!
i can't beleive i haven't been here since April of 2009!!! i can't possibly update 9 months in one post, so i won't! i'll just start anew!!
it's cold here...18 above... salvationArmy is coming for a pickup today. downsizing even more. we decided to build...got the last corner lot on susan's street...good for her since she is our builder! there is a wooded park in the backyard which is less for us to mow! plus deer/wildlife!! a new firestation will be built across the street this year so that's comforting.
i designed a basic ranch -one level(w/unfinished basement) that is ADA accessible. no steps for either of us unless we venture down to the cementCave!!
so far i'm loving the process of deciding on cabinets, counters, tile, carpet, paint, etc. my kitchen will be Italian --winecolored cherry cabinets, beautiful quartz counters. corner fireplace in greatRoom. tiled walk-in showers, double sinks, corner tub w/glass window blocks in masterBath. island w/drawers. stainless appliances. i want a floor drain in the garage. everything new! i can't wait to start digging! that will start when we're in Mesa,AZ for 2 months (planned b4 our 'build' decision!)
so my knitting has kept me 'employed' parttime w/yarn $$$... i will update my knitting project pics soon... i need to do that on Ravelry too! i made the 6 g'kids each a pair of handknit socks. i know E&E love theirs!! also got some 'hawkeye' black/gold sock yarn...it pools a lot but 'that's life!' my BKFF cindy is a real gem! we try to get together every wed during her lunch. and i have a couple of good knitting friends online...valli in maine, anita in queens,NY. i treasure their friendship!
ok, that's all for now...
