I am thankful my son has started helping me when I ask him to. I am thankful that I am strong enough to carry heavy boxes for more than a few feet. I am thankful I have already brought laundry soap to the new house as I found one of my... Read more

I did not end up working from the new house yesterday after all. I fired up the work computer and the VPN would not stay connected to the server at work, so I quick packed up the car and came back to the old house. I was later than usual logging... Read more
Tuesday and working from the new house

Yesterday I packed more than would fit comfortably in the car, but that's OK - it's packed and it will all get there eventually. Better to have stuff packed and waiting than to make the trip with a half-empty car. I also stopped on the way ... Read more
Monday and keep on packing

The movers will be here 4 weeks from today. I want to get as much of the odds-and-ends packed and moved so they mostly deal with the furniture and rugs and the big stuff in the garage. I packed some yesterday and will pack more today - I want to... Read more

I had a great time with my friend yesterday. First we went to the estate sale as it opened at 9. I didn't find anything I wanted, but my friend found a nice marble table-top. Now he needs to find a base for it, but it will make a lovely coffee t... Read more

Today is one estate sale close by, then to the lamp store over in Belvedere and someplace else my friend needs to go. I have several lamps that need professional attention and will be taking two of them with us. Temps are warming up - we ar... Read more

Well, I had 2 paragraphs written and when I came back to write another, my laptop had restarted itself and I lost everything. Not going to try to reproduce it, so this is all you get today.... Read more

I am thankful the north is used to the snow and has the infrastructure to deal with it effectively. I am thankful my mom in TX let me know they are fine - have not lost power, but did lose water for a bit. Their city must have had a water-m... Read more

Do you give something up for Lent? While I am not particularly religious, I find Lent a good time to get something out of my life - one year it was soda - I haven't had a soda in at least 8 years. I should have started thinking about this sooner... Read more
Tuesday and still at the old house

There's no way I was going to try driving 70+ miles yesterday in the snow storm. The worst part is that I didn't get any extra packing done even though I was here. I read. Finished one book and started the sequel. Today it will be a little ... Read more

Monday, ugh. I have the "I don't wanna" today. I didn't have a problem getting up or getting dressed. but doing anything else feels like pushing through gelatin. The plumbers are coming this morning to install a new water heater at the old... Read more
Sunday and I feel lazy

I started a new-to-me book series last night and now I don't want to do anything but sit and read it. I checked the forecast - bitter cold today, but warming up a little every day until it will be above freezing next Sunday. Of course, that... Read more

A high percentage of the country seems to be reporting very cold temps for this weekend, my area included. Please stay safe - if your car stalls, call for help, do not get out of the car. Layer up - I use both a wool headband and a scarf - mitte... Read more

I am thankful the hot water heater lasted as long as it did, but it's past its expected end of life. I am thankful the snow hasn't been enough to stop my trips taking boxes of stuff to the new house. It may have slowed it down, but it hasn'... Read more

Monday again and I really don't feel like doing anything, but I will go to work and pack the car with more boxes and drive them out to the new house after work. The inspector left the ceiling fan in the office turned on and I couldn't reach... Read more
