Gettin ready

Just a short little note to get you caught up....things seem to be moving along and time is getting away from me.  Where does all the time go? 

Last week we closed on the house, so it is ours....however in the state of Kentucky(or at least here) you don't get your keys to your home at closing.....so we are still waiting.  I'm living among boxes at the moment in our duplex.  I'm hopeful that the sellers will be out of the house this weekend.  They are relocating to another area therefore they have been there since closing, working on their new home.  Movers are suppose to be at "our" house on Friday to move them out.  Hoping we can start moving some of our belongings this weekend.  Please say a little prayer.  I'm getting so anxious. Our goal is to be in by next weekend totally. 

We have our belongings stored in so many places.  Seasonal and yard are at my mom's and dads.  I know they will love getting their storage, garage and basement back.  :)  We have furniture and excess decorative junk pretties, stored in three offices at our office building and then we have the the duplex stuff....so as you can see we have things stored EVERYWHERE.  I will feel like a new person when I can corral all my "things" in one place. 

Yesterday I spent some down time working on "placement" list.  You know that list of where you want things to go....Then I worked on a fall decorating list....because it feels like eons since I have been able to decorate my home for the seasons....most likely with working full time and doing this move I am biting off more than I can chew but I will give it my best shot.  Hubby and I also have some list making going on for what needs to be done before we actually get into the house. As of now, he plans to rework my closet so that I can get more use out of it.  It hasn't been updated in probably NEVER.  I will have to get you some pictures of it.  Also I want him to rework my pantry.  Not sure if he will get to that before we move in but it is on the dreaded "to do" list.  His big plans are to add built in shelves to the garage.  Woo hoo...for all those seasonal crates.  :) These are just a few, believe me there are many more.   My hope is to share along the way. I hope you will join me.

Quiet time

Good Morning, I am sitting here this morning at the office.  Bright and early, ( I like to come in around 6:30 so that I have my quiet time and coffee with NO distractions.  It just might be my favorite time of the day.  Who am I kidding, IT IS MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE DAY.   I love reading God's word and by HIS grace I try to live out his word in my day to day life.  It's never easy because life is full of "messes".  I often ponder where I would be today with God's grace and love for me.  Such a scary thought. 

One thing that I am really excited about is the screened in porch at the new(old) house.  I can see my mornings sipping my coffee  with my bible and notebook, looking our over the fields in the back of the house during the summer months, and cuddled up cozy by the fireplace during the winter months. 

These photos are from the realtor's site. 


How do you do your quiet time? 

Hugs and blessings,

Phase 1 - Thinking about the move

Wow, where has the time gone?  Can't believe that I  was away so long, but so much is going on and at rapid speed it seems. 

Since my last post I have been busy.  Lots of things on my mind and my plate.  We just returned from Florida  where we went down and visited with my step-daughter and our new grandson.  Oh how precious he is.  We enjoyed our time greatly and relished in the "down time and sun".  We had the opportunity to eat some great seafood which is always a good thing for me. But as much as I love to go and visit, it is nice to come back home and get back into my routine.  Even though September will be a hectic month for me.   

Spending some time trying to decide how to start packing up our little duplex (rental) and getting ready for the big move.  We will be closing on our house on the 9th of September, but not sure yet of the exact time of move in.  One of my goals with this move, is to go  thoroughly through all of our things and eventually have a massive yard sale at some point. Believe me when I say we are well past the time that this should have already been done.  


 A while back I started myself a little journal where I have been jotting ideas down on paper for my new home and have been spending time browsing and dreaming and writing things down to incorporate in my house.   I can not tell you how happy I am that soon I will be able to put some of these plans into motion.  I've realized over the years just how much my decorating style has changed and I want to breathe some new life into some old things. Do things a bit different that I have in the past. 

I am still thinking about starting a new blog with a more appropriate name.....hoping something will hit me soon, as I want to share this journey with you from the beginning.

Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
