Packing up

Tomorrow is the big day.  The large stuff from here is going to the new house tomorrow.  I've been sorting and stuffing things in Rubbermaid totes 

Sadly there was no system, just grab and fill. I'll worry about it later ;)

Hang in there with me. As soon as I'm settled I will show you pictures.  

That is, if I survive this move.  Naturally the humidity is wicked so that should make moving extra fun!!!!  Lol

Wish me luck

July is a blur

This month is flying by.  I can't believe I haven't posted in so long. And I haven't visited you either....sorry! 
I have my family from Vermont for the month. I've been working and driving back and forth from the beach.  I've been spending time here

Such a pretty beach, isn't it?   And I've been eating lots of this type of stuff

The Sandpiper restaurant fried clams  -  I will go out on a limb here and say there are the best....anywhere!  There's also been a few feeds of lobster and mussels 

We have even been entertaining a daily visitor. 

He is so cute and tame.  If we are late in putting out the peanuts, he jumps on the deck railing and chirps!  Lol

And it's 12 days until moving day!  I've been planning, organizing, etc.  Almosy everything but packing. Lol. It's true, I haven't packed one thing yet :(.  But I did go to a lovely House Warming Shower hosted by my friends.  I got so many lovely things. I can't wait to show you once I'm settled.  

I ordered some new furniture today. It will all come together. Hurry up Closing Day!!

Tomorrow night I get to have dinner with the lovely Jen Manuel from Fish Eye Rugs.  She's in town for a workshop at Deanne's.  I can't wait to catch up with her.

So that's what's happening here in Crazy Town and why I've been MIA here on the blog.  Once I get moved and settled I'll be back more regularly and checking in on your posts.

Hello Arthur

Tropical Storm Arthur has introduced himself. (Not that anyone really wanted to meet him)

Overall he hasn't been as nasty as predicted.  A little rain all day and is just now getting heavier.  The winds picked up speed a few hours ago.  I see the occasional tree branch blow down the street. I hear a few town trees are down but none so far in my neighborhood.  And although the power has flickered a few times, we still have power.  The news is reporting over 140,000 customers are without power in the province so I am counting my blessings not to be one of them.  (yet!)

Not much to do but batten down the hatches, sit tight and ride it out.  I've been knitting my way through the day.

I hope everyone else in the storms path stays safe.

Lists, lists, and more lists

My life has become swamped in lists.  The end of July will be here quickly and I need to outfit a house! I have lists of budgets - plan A and plan B.   I have lists for each room and a budget for each room.  I have a "need" list.  I have a "want" list.  I have a "someday" list.   Soon I will need a list for medications I will need to take if I don't settle down.  Lol  

I am going to put a self-imposed ban on Pinterest because it's just confusing me with ideas.  I have been looking at furniture and have some basic stuff picked out but I will wait until closer to the end of the month.  (Mainly because I keep changing my mind). And I want to arrange another visit inside the new house to measure things again. 

So if you see a crazed woman running around clutching a fist full of lists, relax it's just me.
