Empty Nest , Again

It never bothered me before. In fact, I was eager for my kids to grow up, get a job, and move out on their own. But this time, when my son found a place of his own, it made me feel sad. Give me a break, he will be 30 in May, and he had only moved in for a few months to save some money. But I can't help it, I'm sad. It feels like this time he is really gone.

To get my mind off of it, I'm going to show you some pictures.

(Aren't those lavender roses just gorgeous?) These are the flowers my big guy sent me for our 42nd anniversary on Jan. 20. There was a lot going on that day, and the flowers made the whole day better. He's a gem about remembering our anniversary and my birthday.

These are the skeins of Noro Silk Garden that I am using to knit the Noro Scarf that Everyone but me has made. I haven't taken a picture of the scarf in progress, but I only have a little yarn left to knit. So it will be soon.

I like the pattern so much that I'm going to make some more (cheaper versions) for Christmas presents. I really like making this scarf. And I have learned to knit (sorta) continental while working on it. (I'm sure it is not exactly the correct way, but the finished product looks good!)

Bunny's last vet visit and the resulting lab work was all good. In fact, we are reducing some of her medication until Feb. 20 to see if it will still work for her. Cross you fingers for her!
