Wow! I say that because I haven't had internet since last Wednesday evening and haven't been able to check my mail at work since Thursday. Well, until today. I went into my e-mail account and couldn't believe how much I had. So I let it go until I got home to my new Verizon FiOS and well, WOW is all I can say at the moment. It's amazing.
We survived the move and, in fact, it went rather smoothly. We went under budget with the moving company because we had so much done before they got there, like bringing down the boxes from upstairs and the basement to avoid their using the steps too much. So, it was worth it.
I'm writing from the living room of our new home, which is almost set up. There aren't any curtains in here, but we don't need them really. Only the deer would see us on this side of the house.
Before I go any further, I want to publicly thank both Adrienne and Bobby for all the help they gave us on moving day and Saturday. Here they are in the picture on the right. I don't think we could have done it without you two. Well, we could have, but it would have been really really bad. A big thanks also goes to my sister, Charlotte, who came out Monday and helped me with windows and turning a room full of boxes and crap into an actual guest room, complete with a made bed, sparkling clear windows and curtains. Thanks, my sistah!
Hey, while I'm at it, thanks to all of you, my readers, whose prayers and well-wishes went a long way to helping me ease into this new life of ours. My husband started work on Monday and so far, so good. I believe in the power of prayer, and after I did those auto-posts last week, I concentrated on moving and packing and you know what? It went really smooth. From reading your comments, I think it was because I had so many people praying for me!
You might be surprised to find out that I have hardly taken any pictures since I've been here. I have just been so busy trying to get this place into shape. Most of the pictures on this post wewe taken on the evening of moving day (Friday), just after dinner. My husband and I took Adrienne and Bobby on a little walk around the new farm and it truly is beautiful.
I took the last 2 pictures just now because I wanted you to see what it looks like out my windows here. The one above is the view towards the road and the one below is from one of the doors looking towards the barn.
Sorry I can't say much more just now. I've had a super busy day, with work and having to stop by the old place to get a couple of things we inadvertently missed. It's a half hour drive from work and then an hour drive back north to this place. While there, I also picked a bunch of vegetables from the garden we had to leave. Gotta go now. I've got a curtain rod to hang in my bedroom!
