and family.....We made a choice several years back to move to San Diego. It's worked out for the most part, finding a house we love and weather that Mark especially is happy with. But what we gave up was proximity to family. Our daughter Casey lives nearby which is great, but son Brian, daughter Lucia and both grandbabies live 8 hours north of us.
Fortunately that is a doable trek which we'll be making this weekend. I need to see baby Malayna and hold her in my arms.
Skype and a picture every day have certainly helped us witness her growth and changes, but to hold her will be wonderful.
I'm working furiously to finish her latest sweater, a bolero cardigan out of Sublime, a washable cashmerino. With darling little baby shoes to match.
First though I need to do some weeding in the yard so that our new landscaping isn't overrun and then I have some things to do for the bead business before I can sit again with the fiber in my hands.
I hope I will regale you with pictures of a finished sweater tomorrow, we'll see.....
and speaking of the yard, plants are taking root and flourishing and this week tiling on the hottub surround will be complete and the fountain will be started. Progress!
