Today I head up the mountain for the 2008 Winter Knitting Retreat sponsored by Betsey Macholz and Baskets of Yarn. I've been packing for weeks, but have been continually interrupted by getting the house ready to show to realtors (we've listed it, finally), so my packed items have been moved, repacked, unpacked, and packed again. Whew! I'm tired of packing, and I haven't even loaded the car fully yet. I have the honor of meeting Jordana Paige at Charlotte/Douglas Airport this afternoon and traveling with her up to Boone. We both have classes to teach tomorrow afternoon, so this evening will be spent helping Betsey and Maisie set up the "store" and organize for tomorrow's registration.
On a sad note, please keep Diane Earley in your prayers as she just received news that her 103-year-old granny has been placed in the care of Hospice. My heart goes out to you, dear friend.
About 25 realtors were here yesterday to preview the house. Liberty put on quite a show, as you can imagine. She's very confused and frustrated that we allowed so many people to come into "her" house at one time. She tried her best to "protect" us from the intruders, but she was truly outnumbered and finally just gave up.
