I Disappeared !!!
Hello friends !! I feel like I went missing for real !! What a crazy time it's been.... We have a new home !!!!!
Let me be a little more specific...we bought a DIFFERENT home...but definately not NEW !!!
Such alot of work to do...and we had literally 2 weeks to be out of the old home, so as not to have to pay 2 mortgage payments for Aug. ....
My kids , my grandkids and a dear friend were all here to help !! and we did it !!!
I so wish I could share pics, but there is soooo much work to do yet, and I'm practically living out of rubbermaid totes, I don't have anything I'm willing to share right now...I have before pics, but oh no !! Noone is seeing those until it's finished....lol
i have a HUGE lot, well, for me it is....almost 1 acre and alot of beautiful plants and flowers....but, along with all of this comes the bad part...the elderly folks that lived here grew beautiful flowers and plants to sell around the area flea markets and such....We even have a Greenhouse !!!...but oh dear friends...these sweet old souls were HOARDERS !!!
The wife passed away awhile ago and the husband is in a nursing home. The son was so overwhelmed he wanted to just sell quickly.... wow what a mess...we rented a HUGE dumpster !! and had it filled to the rim and need to rent one again to finish the outside....
I'm a little overwhelmed still , but I will say this...i've probably lost at least 25 pounds from all the work and not much appetite in this un godly heat !!
This house has sooo much potential and it is starting to shine through !!! I can't wait to have a garden next year and do a little canning like in the good old days when we were farming...oh how I've missed that !!
I am going through my creative withdrawls, but I guess it won't be too long before I'm set up with my studio and back to designing again !!!
Hugs to you all !!!
