Back to the Hills



We made our big move. So much has been going on I haven't a clue how to summarize it. I was last on here moaning about cleaning and arranging the house for placing it up for sale. Well, of all the luck we put it up for sale on a Thursday and Saturday was a first showing. That did it--the first people who saw it fell in love with it and made an offer that we accepted.

So much for my complaining and worrying. But wait, I wasn't done worrying, oh no...that had just begun. I worried the roof would rip off in one of the many storms that seemed unending and I slept very little thinking about what could go wrong before closing. What a mess I was!!!

A few things did manage to go wrong--a roof repair and an icemaker that got all blocked up but in the grand scheme of things I should have slept more. Sheesh!! That is my 8 year old's favorite expression right now--how suitable.

We are now ensconsed in a pretty little ranch--in need of paint and loving care. We have rented for now until we can find a place to buy. The pictures above are a slice of heaven that is within an hours drive. I love the woods and we missed them so.

Now, if we could only have convinced our good neighbors and friends to have moved with us. We miss them.

I don't know how often I will be back on here but I will try to update on how the fixing up goes. Don't you just love the wooden floors.

All I can say is how much I miss your blog. Yours was one of the first ones I found when I started to exploring blogging. I hope all is well with you and your family. Have a safe and peaceful summer!
