. . . of what I’ve been doing the past few days.
Well, all the posts appear to have been migrated over from the old version of WordPress on the old version of the site successfully. A lot of the image links are broken, so I’ll just have to go through and fix them by hand. Eventually. I suppose if there’s something that someone really wants to […]
I wasnâ€™t sure that the hop would survive the winter outside, even in the pot. But thereâ€™s one sprout a fingerlength long, and another just starting to poke through. I guess that means I should get around to cutting the old vines down now, and figuring out a better way to support it this year. […]
You may remember the knitting machine that I found at the thrift store a few weeks ago. I finally found the time to lay everything out and take pictures of them; the pieces, at least. The two boxes of patterns and notes I haven’t even started to go through yet.

So I’ve been packing stuff up so we can move. Don’t have the new house yet, and it’s always possible that this one could fall through like the last one did, but I chose to do it in the expectation that we will be leaving to somewhere. Tip: Many recycling centers don’t take wrapping paper. […]
