Hi Friends!
It seems like forever since I've been on!!


We sold our house after trying everything....

....just kidding, we didn't have to do that! emoticon

Got some boxes from a neighbor....
....and well, some from the liquor store. After consuming the contents. emoticon

Then back and forth back and forth moving stuff which has seemed like forever!

And getting things ready....

But this week we finally should be done with it!! emoticon emoticon

The furniture and last of the boxes will go.

I worry about my stuff!!!

I've asked that EVERYTHING be wrapped in bubblewrap!

One can never have enough of that stuff!

Once we settle, the decorating begins....

Many ideas come to mind...

I'm pretty contemporary, I like white. Not too many people do....

Friends have suggestions....

Nope, I like my white with some color. Flowers are always good....

IF I EVER GET TO SEE FLOWERS AGAIN!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Okay, so.... Yesterday we were at the house, we brought a lovely lunch, set it up on a small table and pulled up our chairs. Looked out the window and look what I saw!!! Just lovely!!!

I wish the pictures were a little sharper, I got up to grab my camera so quickly afraid I'd miss him they aren't exactly clear!

So then we did some stuff around the house. We leave and it was raining, sounds like sleet I say....

We get home and it's SNOWING!!!

Okay listen, I know I live where it gets cold and it snows. I'm okay with that. It actually can be nice. BUT NOT FOR THIS LONG AND THIS COLD!

Here's what it looked like!

And this morning???? This is why I can't find flowers!!!!

There's like 6 inches out there!

Yep, that's about how I'm feeling!

Look, even the poor little birds that have come home don't know where to go, this is my front step!!!

It's okay. We'll be inside doing necessary repairs today....

And soon enough we'll be in our new place enjoying it all.

I hope wherever you are whether it's snowing, raining, or sunny you enjoy the day. To my friends with drought I hope things are getting better for you as well. It's been a long season for us all!

It's up to us to make it a good day! So let's go do it!!!!

Sending warm friendship emoticon and emoticon

....Enjoy all of today's moments. xo

    Hi Beni! I was just thinking I needed to stop by and say HI! and I see you posted a new blog with such good news for you!!! Congrats on selling the other house at long last! What a weight off of you that is going to be. So glad to hear that it is finally going to be someone else's new home! I am sure you are more than ready to make the new one your home and make new memories in it!
I cannot believe that it is still snowing. We just got back from Las Vegas on Friday where it was in the 80's and here it was 30's. But today the sun is out and it is in the 60's so I am optimistic that Spring will eventually get here!
Hope you are doing well and that the move will be complete soon. Lovely picture of the fox outside your windows. How cool is that to have wild life so close.
Hope the snow melts soon and the flowers start to bloom in no time and the decorators turn your house into a beautiful comfortable place where you will start a entire new journey.
Take good care and post some pics of that beautiful new house.
Big hugs!!! xoxoxo Holly

    Welcome back Beni! Been missing you tons. So glad the old place is finally sold and you can move forward with living again. Hopefully April will be a fresh start, with warm breezes and gentle rains. We are all about DONE with snow and cold. Must say, you have the coolest welcome wagon rep I've seen, hoping you get many more sightings of the fox. Your new yard will be such a wonderful oasis through the seasons for both man and beast. Blessings to you emoticon

    Missed your blogs! Thanx for a great one!
Love the pictures of the fox! What a great sight from your window.
I'm glad your house sold, now you can get on with the fun stuff, setting up your new home.
It's raining here, a lot. Nasty, raw, rotten day. Glad it's not snow though. Where's spring?!
Have a great week!

    AWESOME BLOG!!!!!!! : ) WOO HOO emoticon emoticon Been a long time coming this move. What an amazing little friend to have so close.... Can see you will have hours of relaxing moments coming soon. As for the snow.... where did it come from?? I went to bed with window up to sleep to the sounds of raindrops and woke to a light blanket of snow/ice. News said winds are next. Crazy weather. Now I know why the robins were acting all strange last night!! I see my daffodils are about 3 inches high. No sign of blossoms....soon maybe. May peace & love fill your new home. HUGS!!!!
