New Home. New Adventure.

From my new front window

We have been working our little hineys off for a month now!

We decided we would take the whole month to move and clean. 

You know, save ourselves the stress of moving all at once and not being able to find anything.'s been a good move. It's been a bad move.

The new house is almost put together. Little projects aside, I liked this part. Bring some stuff here, put it away. Bring some more stuff...yada yada yada.

But with that came the utter lack of motivation to go back to the old house to clean or finish grabbing those last little things...Madley STILL can't find his remotes for our TV system. Life is not the same for him.

So this week has been a rush to get it all done. STRESS was my middle name.

But I am happy to report that with one day left in the month. I am done!

Madley is over there as we speak grabbing his last minute things and then he will be done.

I'm tired to the bone. 

 I may squeeeeeee! 1960's retro home!
3000 Sq Ft with a basement.

I do have lots of projects lined up for our new home. But they can all be done one at a time and in no hurry.

We've been puttering in our lovely yard...pruning and cutting and enjoying every last minute of it.

Our old rental neighborhood was really...The Hood. Teenage boys (and some girls) lurking about doing things I consider ILLEGAL, IMMORAL and possibly fattening. Dead behind the eyes and mischievous to the nth degree.
Scared to go out to my driveway at night. This was supposed to be a quiet, good neighborhood. But the teens from hell made everyone nervous and cranky and stay inside.

Fast Forward to new neighborhood...
We just got an invitation to a block party. A family friendly BLOCK PARTY!
Our neighbors have all been stopping by to welcome us to the neighborhood.
The teens here say HELLO! to me when I am outside. They smile and have life in their eyes.

I am solidly in love with our new digs.


  1. Very, very cool! Purty pix so far, and I love the sound of your new neighbors.

  2. Thanks Deb! We absolutely love it here :)

  3. Ahhhh, home at glad you are there! Well, not "there" cause I'd rather you be "here" but I think you know what I meant!!!

  4. I'm so glad I've found you again! Don't know if you'll see this since the date is 2011, but I'm enjoying catching up. I did read about your R.A. in a later post and hope you're doing well with that. Blessings to you!

  5. Hi Dianne! I've been really busy. I do have some catching up to do!!! Thank you :0)
