Okay, the truth is, she lives 2 doors down rather than next door, but still, how amazing is that? I got a message on Ravelry one day and the sender said, "I've been admiring your knitting and noticed that you live in Cedar Creek, we might be neighbors." Well, once I emailed her back where I lived, we began to narrow down exactly where we lived in relation to one another and low and behold, she is only about 200 feet away! And we arranged to meet one day at my house and Anna is absolutely delightful, though apparently blogless (for now). I love her sense of humor and they have cats. She's of my generation and has lived here almost as long as we have. She works in Austin too and also works for a government, hers is Travis County. This Saturday I am dragging her to The Knitting Nest for the morning meet-up. It's WWKIP Day on Saturday and there are several things planned in town, the big one being at the state capitol downtown, but our weather has been pretty hatefully hot and dry lately so we don't think we will make it to that, but we'll be there in spirit. I can't believe I had to meet my neighbor via an international online community, but I am really glad that there is a way for us to find one another. (Note to self: Ravelry Tip Jar) Anyone else find someone in their neighborhood through Ravelry?
This weekend, the grand-boy is coming for his first sleepover at the grandparents house! I am excited and I hope Kandis and Rob have fun on their night out. Here is a photo of Cooper (Rob holding him) reaching for Grandma - do you know how great that feels? Yep, now if I can just get him to call me something - I don't care what, just so he means 'me'. Boy, grandma's sure can be selfish.
I am trying out a new commenting system here on the blog, so feel free to comment, even if you don't have much to say 'cept what a cute grand-boy I have. And if you're local, I hope to see you this Saturday.
ETA: The comment experiment was a dysmal failure. But I still like and encourage comments. Let's see if I set it back in order properly.
