8 st/in

Hola, chitlin's ~

Missouri is beginning to feel like home. Imagine that. We brought back from Indiana the fridge, washer & dryer, our bed, my sewing machine, some of my favorite rocks and the little buddha. 

Today, I signed up for NetFlix online. This is after I decided not to have cable or satellite teevee here, because most teevee sucks big donkey dicks. I just watched Get Shorty, two episodes of That 70s Show, and the pilot for 30 Rock. For $8 a month. Yeah, I am in love.

The 4 inches of snow that we came home to has melted, and I get to see the yard again. I have yet to see it actually snow whilst in abode, but it is still not Spring, so I may have the chance. We brought the palm tree back with. Love you, Harry!

I have tried to begin a pair of socks from some Bamboo Regia, to my despair. I don't think I like it very much. No sproing and it is splitty. Have put it aside for the nonce, and have begun to cast on another pair from my Deborah Norville sale selection. We'll see.

It's a cold but beautiful day. The sun is shining and the sky is brilliant blue. This is becoming home.

I love Netflix instant- we watch tons of movies on it & then we have the "1 at a time" plan otherwise. I don't really care about tv either but my hubby loves it- so we have Uverse & a DVR recorder. Glad to hear that you're settling in.

Hmmm. I may need to look into that NetFlix option. It's very nearly affordable!

I'm glad it's all going along so nicely, and it's lovely that you're settled in time to be able to observe every little sign of spring when it comes.

Home is one of the best feelings you can have. Enjoy!
