Sorry it's been so long since I last did a real post.
I have been to busy climbing mountains of brown moving boxes. I couldn't seem to find my way to the computer~ ;)

we have gotten a lot done~ The 5,000 boxes of books are finally narrowed down to about 3-- that took a while.!.

The man who packed them, said that it was the biggest amount of books he had ever packed-- at least by himself. That's saying a lot, considering that he packs up houses all the time!

We are really liking our house~ it's extremely homey.

One of the many things I love about it is that most of the house has all the original doors from when it was built in 1954. Old doors are so much prettier than new doors. I love the doors knobs-- even despite the fact that on some of them they will only open, if you turn it a certain way; and the doors knobs will fall off if you shut it to hard... I still love them! ;)

I painted an old book shelf that the owners left. It was wood, but I painted it black. When I first started to paint it, it looked dark blue. Everyone thought so~ I was a little worried there for a minute. Then it started to dry and it looked black. Wheeh! ;)

 It now resides in the living room holding our books, and DVD's. I'm going to have to touch up on the places where the paint chipped off when I was loading books on it. The paint person at "Lowe's" told us the wrong kind, so it's not holding up to great.. oh, well!


 It's supposed to snow here tomorrow..(or so they say), snow already? I mean it is November, but still-- doesn't seem like it could possibly snow already! The year has flown by, wasn't it just yesterday that we were watching the ball drop?

Then when I think about all that has happened this year, it does seem possible.

I am singing Christmas carols, and listening to a Christmas CD. I guess it is that time of year again~

 I am listening to "The Best Day" (Taylor Swift), and when I scrolled down to the picture above, she sang, "Now I know why all the trees change in the Fall", kind of appropriate, don't you think? ;)


i'm going to go head over that mountain of brown boxes now...

I have always had issues in setting up a verified phone number with my Craigslist account. I have finally found a service that solves this problem.
