how the new house floods with light in the afternoon and evening. After we get some real furniture in the joint, I will post a few pics. I did get the yard cut (and my in-laws' next-door). Still to do tomorrow is weed-wacking. It took longer than I thought it would, but I absolutely love my electric mower (a black and decker battery operated one). Other news...
Lucy still a bit tentative about the yard, but we are loving opening the deck door, ushering her outside, and letting her wander off to do her business without human accompaniment.
The fellow who lived here left his built in sound systems in the living room and family room. Wow! I've been greatly enjoying both. My iPhone plugs right in and I'm hearing the music like I never heard it before. The family room has an even better sound system for the movies and such - we watched Cool Runnings and Fried Green Tomatoes so fa.r When the couch arrives for basement, I intend to do a marathon session on Lord of the Rings.
Cindi and I are having totally opposite reactions. She HAD to be at the parsonage today to watch them take it down; I HAD NOT to be at the parsonage today to watch it be dismantled. Mary came and sat with Cindi for a while - thank you, Mary! I just tried not to think about it and cut grass instead.
Getting ready to go to Jo and Dave's for cards - hoping that Jo will let me win tonight. About time, don't you think?
I have decided that moving is not for obsessive compulsive sorts. I'm driving everyone crazy by wanting everything to already be in its place, but it doesn't have a place yet. I've resigned myself to a mess on the kitchen counter for the time being - but I still start itching as soon as I look at it. It needs to be PUT AWAY. I think Bekah and I will be butting heads quite a bit because I simply can't stand to have stuff out of place, and she just doesn't care at the moment. Grr.
And that's about it from here - oh, except we got to see Jamie for the first time across the yard over in the court. She is so adorable!
