So Monday I was at the farm, and then had errands, and then had to go to the Title company to sign off on something because--OH I didn't tell you all we finally have the occupancy permit! So that starts all the 'wrapping up' of stuff. Then yesterday I went over to school and dropped off my computer so the tech guys (not sexist, really, all the tech people at the J school are guys. All the academic advisors are women. It is a bit odd) anyway so the tech guys could migrate my old computer to a new computer (we get a new computer every four years, apparently, so I now have MacBook Pro with that bar across the top that I have no idea what it is good for. It does use a thumbprint to log me in so that is kind of cool.
And after dropping that off I had a dentist appointment, and then had to go back to school and wait around while they futzed with the computer and did my thumbprint thing. Then I had a message that the appraiser was on the coast and could he pop in to take photos for the appraisal? I'm, of course, two hours away but several phone calls straightened that all out.
Today I'm going out to see if I can find some not-expensive mirrors for the house (because on the never ending list of things you need for a brand new house, mirrors are on that list). I'm pretty organized for our short trip out to the house this weekend, but of course that is likely to change.
I did do a little stitching. H is for Honeyeater, a small bird found in Australia. Here it is enjoying some honey from a flower.
And here is a female in real life.
I also packed up my Beekeepers Quilt to take to the coast--and I'll just leave it there and hopefully will finish it so we'll have a nice cozy quilt for a bed there. I think it is a wise choice to have a project that I don't take back and forth--there will always be something for me there to work on.
