Hello from "The OC"

My feet have landed but I am not sure the rest of me has. We bought a condo in Laguna Woods, a retirement comunity (more on that later) in south Orange County.. We were able to close on Dec. 28 and move in on Jan 3. This has been a daunting proccess. As I mentioned in my last post, yes that was months ago, I have lived in the San Gabriel Valley for a very long time and there is a lot of things that I am letting go of as I move to Laguna Woods. At the same time I pinch myself everyday because I am living in Laguna Woods and I am so close to Laguna Beach, my old stomping grounds in high school and college. I love it here and part of me really feels like I have moved back home. I am only 20 minuets from my old house in Fountain Valley. 

(A "Saville modle" like the one we bought in Laguna Woods)

Now a retirement comunity is not what we were looking at. But there was this one modle that kept showing up the computer that I loved and the price was amazing. But it was in the 55+ comunity. Well that out, we don't want to do that yet. We are just 55!!But we checked it out anyways. No stone left unturned. We the model we loved was great. Very open and much bigger then anything we were looking at and up to $40-$50 thousand then the other things we were looking at.

Then our realtor showed us clubhouse 4 (there are 7). This houses junior college level workshops for woodworking, photography, pottery, fine art, sewing, jewelry making, silver, lapadary and I am sure I missed something. OMG. Use of the facilities is free except for supplies you might use. They also have classes that are free plus supply fees. Did I say OMG!

Wel,l besides the location (15 minuets from Laguna Beach) and being able to buy a much bigger house for much less money it was a no brainer. We are lovin Laguna Woods. 

Knitting has still been going on during all of this. I think it kept me from going totally insain. I will do a "finished project" post next time. 

One of my FO's

I am going up to the Valley every week now and knitting with all of my friends. As of this week all the drop-in/beginning knitting times are up and running at several wonderful locations. I have to get pcitures over the next few weeks of our knitting spaces. 

If you want to join us check out the times and locations here.

I am also coming up with a contest for March so stay tuned for the fun!!

Hint: How many unfinshed projects do you have??
