Happy Friday!

The Friday before a holiday is always quiet at work and this Friday is no exception. Memorial Day is a big deal in DC. There is almost no one here at work today, except me of course. So I'm enjoying the quiet and not doing work. I have done almost no work today, but my sock has gotten more attention than it has in weeks.

We're now all moved into the new house. There are only a couple of boxes that still need to be unpacked. My in-laws are coming to visit this weekend. Our first visitors to the new place (not including the friends who helped us move). I wish I had had more time to get everything ready. At least my parents are coming for another two weeks, plenty of time to finish up the house.

So I haven't been knitting much lately. Unpacking boxes has been taking up all of my time. Well, that and the end of the tv season. Gilmore, Lost, Heroes - I've been getting all caught up on my tv. And I've been reading the Internet to see what everyone thought of the finales. Anyway, the second Roza sock is coming along. Only a couple of more inches before I start the toe. Cozy is coming along too. I LOVE cozy. I'm on ball 6 of 9 and it can now go around my shoulders. And it is warm and cozy and squishy and did I say that I love it. I'll almost be sad when I'm finished with the knitting of it. Maybe there'll be some picutres next week.

Have a great weekend!

Goodbye Girls!

(Note: I haven't been posting lately because I've been busy moving into our new house - which I WILL post about soon.)

The series finale of Gilmore Girls.

On one hand, I'm sad that it's over. Gilmore Girls has been one of my favorite shows since it started 7 years ago. I even named my child Lorelei (I know the gilmores spell it differently). I have to say that Kirk, Miss Patty, and Babette were some of the most unique characters on tv.

On the other hand, it was time for it to end. I've long thought that the show should end with Rory's graduation. Time for everyone to move on.

I really liked the finale. Rory going off to conquer the world, Lorelai and Luke back together, Lorelai and her parents finally starting to develop a real relationship. There had been talk of a 13-episode season next year to wrap up the series, but I really can't imagine what else was left to say. Yes, the episode was a little sappy. And there haven't been enough pop culture references this entire season. But overall, I think it was a great way to end a great series.

Goodbye Gilmore Girls! Thanks for 7 years of Tuesday night entertainment!
