The Many Faces of Tazy

This is Tazy enjoying a favorite treat - Tootsie Pops.

Zucchini on Steroids

Chris got this zucchini from one of his co-workers... he grows them in his garden. It was just too damn big NOT to share!

I have knitting ADD.

These are just two projects I've been working on... I got these yarns during our trip to PA. I've never really done a lace scarf before, but I think after I block it, it will look really great with my jean jacket.

I've also never used these white-bendy needles for the socks before, but the pattern was too difficult to do with something that wasn't easier on my hands... however, the addi ones are still my favorite. And with that, I'm a big dork. :) I'll post pictures when I complete them (eventually!).

House Hunting

We got a lot accomplished this week! On Monday we were pre-approved and told to go find a house, Wednesday we called a realtor, Thursday she sent us about 30 listings, and Saturday we all went out and saw our top 6 choices. Chris and I decided to sit down separately with the listings she had sent us and make our own list of "must-see" houses - thankfully, most of our choices matched (always a good sign!). Of the houses we saw this weekend, this is our favorite. It was built in 2004, 3 bedrooms, 2 and a half baths, gas fireplace, 2 car garage, and just really nice. It would be about an hours drive for Chris to work, and about 20 minutes for me. So this is a maybe... but ultimately, we've decided we don't want to live in the country - we can deal with well water and a septic tank, but having to burn our own trash is just down-right not cool. This house is not quite in the country, but it's close, so we're not jumping on anything yet - but we might take a second look.

In the meantime, I guess we'll just keep looking...
