my long lost summer!

I never intended to take the summer off, but that's exactly what happened!

Our little family PCS'd from our home of 5 years in Alexandria VA to the mid-west, a few weeks ago. Hubby is now stationed at Fort Riley Kansas, and we call Manhattan (Kansas) our new home.

In the months and weeks leading up to the big move, we spent a lot of time with friends we wouldn't be seeing for quite some time. I imagined it would be more painful than it was...probably because I have active plans to see a few of the wonderful/fabulous/awesome friends I had to leave back there in the future. Thank goodness I didn't cry like a baby when I was saying my good-byes ...the tears waited until I crossed the state line into Kansas. I knew it was for real then.

This post could easily turn into one of those where I go on and on about being sad but, I just can't. So instead, I will leave you a few more pics I snapped on our trip to Kansas.

Pharoh taking a rest somewhere in Ohio

Gnomes in Missouri

Cabelas in St Louis - awesome!

Long stretch of Kansas road in front of me

At an overlook in Kansas, not far from home.

As for knitting, I'm working on Dahlia, while everything else is on ignore :) I will post more pics and blog some more soon!

Its nice to be back!
