PeaceRiverBP has created a new entry.
Sandi; I'm down to a couple of boxes and a few piles of clutter that need to find a home, but otherwise, I'm more-or-less unpacked for the time being.

I'm glad to hear that the storm wasn't too bad when it came through your neighborhood!

Happy Wednesday! :-)

Hi Beth, glad to see things are getting sorted, and as Karen said, pictures on the wall means you are nearly there!

Looks like the storm has headed north, and although clipped the top of Scotland, the rest of us had just some rain, with a little more to come, but no damaging winds, thank goodness.

Happy Wednesday.

Linda; Hope your friend comes through the surgery okay! Yes, my critters are pretty laid back. I was worried about Triton the cat, but he seemed to make himself right at home and was very happy from the first day.

Yum! Sweet potatoes! One of my fall favorites!

Karen; I'm so glad to be right next door to family, too. It's great for all of us; I'm even more convenient for babysitting and I get to see all the kids!

Pictures will be forth-coming soon. :-)

Beth - I'm so glad you are closer to family . That is going to have so many benefits for everyone involved. I anxiously await new photos of the new place!

Evening, Beth! I'm glad to see you're getting settled. When the artwork goes on the walls, you're nearly there. It's great to hear that the animals are adjusting well, too - but I have a feeling yours are pretty laidback anyway, and used to traveling around.

All's pretty good here. A nice cold front today, my friend who broke her arm and knee this weekend is through surgery and able to get out of bed, and I baked a whole passel of sweet potatoes and had one for supper. What could be better?

I'm glad to hear there will be photos of the new digs. I'm excited to see it!

Bug; The artwork has been mounted on the walls, and most things have been put away by now. It's really starting to look like home. The critters are quite comfortable and settled in right away. They don't seem to miss the old place at all!

Sandi; Yes, we're right next door to one another. When I take Sammy out, first he goes to my oldest daughter's house down back to see if her dog or any people are outdoors and if not, then he walks back up the drive to my youngest daughter's home and looks for her dog or anyone who might be a playmate. And I like it because I can get my "grandma fix" almost every day.

Good luck with the storm; I hope it's lost some of it's oomph by the time it gets to you!

When you said you were nearer family I hadn't realised you meant 'next' door!

How is the 'coming together' coming on? Any nearer to being "shipshape' yet?

I saw how the second storm caused you more damage than Sandy did.... I can see the depression that caused it on my pressure map, and guess what, it seems to be heading our way! Hope it gets broken up by Greenland!

Have a good week!

Gosh, I hadn't realized it had been so long since I stopped by.

I see you're now moved and still in the process of settling in, hanging pictures and whatnot.

I know it will be a relief, financially. And nice to be a bit closer to family. Things change and life goes on and you and Sammy will soon be 'at home' in your new abode.

Janet; Athena? Was that the name of this week's storm? It was a little more vicious than Sandy- enough the shake the building and blow lots of stuff around, but it brought some much-needed rain. The temps had dipped to 30 degrees just before it hit; luckily it warmed up quite a bit or we'd be buried in snow by now!

No, I don't have a real fireplace- just an electric model. It looks pretty, but it's not quite the same. Thanks for checking on me! Hope all is well with you!

Numberwise; I heard that we had over hurricane-force gusts, but the highest one I know of was 66 miles an hour. There's some minor damage locally and trees down, but nothing too serious. My electricity blinked a few times, but no losses in this area- thank goodness!

Yes, I agree that moving is tough and as much as I'll miss the old place, I really do like the new one. It's a bit smaller, very cute and I just love having my daughters and grandkids as neighbors- one daughter and her family on each side of me!

I was living on the outskirts of town, next door to a farm and abutting a conservation area, but now that I'm right in the village I thought I wouldn't be seeing or hearing much wildlife- but already I've seen a falcon streak across the yard, watched some crows harass an owl in flight and heard coyotes howling three times- all in less than two weeks. It's kind of comforting to know that Nature is still close at hand.

Are you really thinking of moving? Where to?

Hi, Beth. I stopped by to see how the current storm treated you, and it looks like you got quite a bit of rain in addition to wind gusts over 50 mph! I hope you didn't have too much tree damage and that you didn't lose power.

I've enjoyed your sequential photos over the months, and I'll look forward to photos of - and from the windows of! - your new abode. Yup, moving is tough in many ways, but also it's full of opportunities. I think I need to move again - this house is getting too full!

I stopped by to see how 'Athena' treated you. I noticed your weather is about the same temp as ours right now. We had the rainy day yesterday. really nice today though chilly. I like the cooler days, just not the bone chilly ones.

Does your new place have a fireplace?

take care

Sandi; Yes, it's really nice to see the place coming together! I had some help from my son-in-law today who hung some art work way up high at the gable ends of the vaulted ceiling for me. It's so convenient to have a tall person for these kinds of jobs! I hope it won't be too much longer before the process of getting settled is complete- and yes- there will be photos! :-)

How have you been? Are things going okay? After all that dreary summer weather, I hope you're enjoying a pleasant fall.

Bug; We had some heavy erosion here, too- what with the moon tides and big seas, but nothing that personally effected me.

Feeling like Mrs. Magoo? I have the same problem but for me I know it's just eye strain and exhaustion. How nice that you can get your eyes checked at work! I hope new glasses fix the problem.

I know I'll miss the old place terribly, but I've been too busy to think about it much so far, although Monday was a sad day as I finished emptying it out and cleaning it up. I'm sure I'll enjoy this place a lot; already enjoying not waking up to the loud heavy equipment engines revving and back-up beepers from the excavation place diagonally across the street where ex-hubby still works.... and I don't have to look at his ugly mug any more, either! Hooray!

Yes, I'll definitely post photos when I finish unpacking... may take a while! Thanks for checking in!

Glad to hear you made it thru Sandy OK. There's been so much beach damage. Not just a little erosion, either. Whole reshiftings of the shorelines!

Been meaning to stop by to check on you but I kept getting sidetracked. Computer at work isn't working well on WU. I also think I need new glasses, so by the time I'd get off work, my eyes were bothering me to much to want to get online at home. Got an appt w/ Opthal here at work in another couple of weeks, so hopefully, that issue will get resolved soon. Now, if you hear about some myopic woman down in Charleston robbing a bank, don't rat me out!

I guess you will miss your little apt but there are other considerations. Lower rent, closer to family, a garden plot (!), the beach. Sounds like the pros outweigh the cons. And if you ever want to shake things up from beach walking with Sammy, I'm sure you can find some wooded areas nearby.

Once you get yourself settled in, we want to see!

Karen; Yes- closer to the beach is good! I've been too busy to walk there with Sammy, but on Monday night after Sandy passed through, I took Sammy out around 11:30pm and the winds were eerily quiet, but we could hear the surf pounding on the shore about a half-mile away. Last night we still could hear the waves hitting the beach, but the sound wasn't as deep as the previous night. It's nice to hear that well-loved sound again. And of course, I love being closer to the kids- both my daughters and the grandkids! Sammy & Triton seem to like it here, too; they are settling in quickly- especially Triton. I'll take photos when I've got the place in order. :-)

Janet; All is well, thanks- just really tired and a bit achy from all that moving stuff!

Sandi; Yes, luckily my wonderful Son-in-law, oldest grandson and life-long best friend helped me get moved on Sunday. I spent Monday (the day Sandy hit) cleaning out the old place- came home and collapsed with a take-out veggie pizza because I had no food at home except for some bananas, Pop Tarts, etc., and Sammy & I enjoyed the pizza and a relaxing evening with some movies in the VCR. I was too played-out to even think about doing any more unpacking. I'm slowly recovering.... and hoping I NEVER have to move again! UGH... I'm too old for this! But, I'm glad the hard part is over-with and now I can settle-in at my leisure.

Happy Halloween! :-)

Ahhh....I saw mention of you moving on FB, but by scrolling back I learned why. Heck moving closer to the beach is always hard, but someone has to do it (hope you notice the sarcasm in my voice!). Home is where the heart is, is what I always say. As long as you have Sammy and Triton and being closer to the grands is always better.....just be sure to take pictures like you did with this place! You are such a good decorator and you give me ideas!

Janet; Thanks! I'm hoping that Sandy won't be too much of an issue, either. She should be coming through sometime after I'm already moved into my new place and that will just leave me cleaning up the old place during the storm. Hope she behaves herself when she is in your neck of the woods! Good luck!

Good luck with your move this week-end. One of my florida friends is doing the same thing. Hopefully Sandy will not be too much of a problem. It sounds as thought thye are really expecting to be be very very bad for NE areas.
btw-I love the coloring of todays photo.

Sandi; So far so good for the weather... moving day is on Sunday, so I should get in before the storm arrives and then I can do my final cleaning while the weather is bad. I've been really lucky with weather conditions as I take small truck-loads of stuff over to the new place. The temperatures have been really mild and except for a few sprinkles and overcast days, it's been bright and sunny- thank goodness! Thanks for wishing me luck!

Hi Beth,

I do hope 'I' don't come and cause you problems for moving day!!

Bet you are busy doing last minute chores and packing, but it will soon all be over and you will be able to settle into your new home and get it how you want it!

Take care, and GOOD LUCK !

Good morning, Linda;

So far, so good! Yes, it is handy to have big, strong men around; I've always been sturdy and strong for my size- at just over 5 foot tall, I've had nick-names like "Mighty Mite" and "The Bionic Woman" (after the "Bionic Man" first came out, but before the actual "Bionic Woman" made her first appearance on TV- yes- I know, I'm dating myself!) but I'm getting older now and I'm ready to let the younger, bigger, stronger ones take over. Both my son-in-law and grandson are well over 6 foot and have amazed me with their feats of strength. This apartment has been rented furnished up until now and my 20 year old grandson carried all the furnishings downstairs BY HIMSELF so that it would be empty for me to move into. (Seems just yesterday that he was a little boy....) I'm really grateful to have these guys around!

Good luck getting everything completed before your departure in a few days and have a WONDERFUL trip!

Morning, Beth,

I'm glad to hear all's going so well. Having those big, strong ones around is quite a convenience!

I'm finishing up breakfast while I type, then I'm off to vote, and then to work. Lots to do before I leave on Wednesday, even though I felt like I was on top of things yesterday. Now I realize I'm not, so much. Of course, I keep adding to the list, so there you are!

Have a great day. I hope the weather cooperates with you so you don't have to move in the rain. I've done that, and it's no fun!

Sandi; Very often, that's the way it works here, too, but luckily, as I'll be renting from family, it's a lot less formal this time and I'm able to carry smaller things over myself before the actual move-in day next Sunday. And luckily, I'll have help from my Son-in-law and oldest grandson on Sunday to load and unload the heavy stuff, plus my SIL's big landscaping truck & trailer to put it all in! (My SIL also is a former professional mover, so he knows the best way to do things- and big & strong, too! I bought a small refrigerator yesterday- not a compact but not quite as tall as I am and he put it on his shoulder & carried it up the stairs for me! Wow!)

Yes, I will miss this place, but I know I'll soon be settled into my new digs and I'll be quite happy there.

Hope all is well with you!

It sounds as though you already have the keys to the new place, which lets you move in a little at a time.
Here we get the keys the day we move in, so on moving day we have to move out of one house and then into the new one, the same day! It makes it so hectic!

Hope the next few days go well.... I know you will miss the place, but your new place will soon feel like home:)

Good luck!

Sandi; Thanks- I will miss it here, but I'm only moving a mile and a half away, and being near family and the ocean will be very nice. It will also be nice not to have the financial stresses of living in a place that takes every cent I earn just to keep the roof over my head. Other than I really like my Little-Apartment-on-the-Pond, this is about as painless as a move can get. :-)

You take care, too; hope all is well! {{{hugs}}}

Hi Beth,
I am sorry to hear you are having to move, but understand why..... may have to do the same one day.

But personally, I would love to be near the sea..... I miss it so much living here. And to be nearer to family, that's a good incentive.

Take care :-)

Hope you enjoyed the BBQ! Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you are having a nice day up your way. I think people in this part of the country must be enjoying our beautiful sunny almost warm day. We had very few in Church this morning, maybe 30-35. I had to wind my way around downtown to get home. They have a mess down there what with that Mumfest going on.
I really shouldn't say almost warm day - it is a warm day! We will be bbqing again. Now it is so everytime we do we say 'this will pobably be our last one til the spring.' We are still of the charcoal, do not like gas people.Charcoal just does not burn good in winter.

We are watching that man doing his free fall from space. It takes you back to the first days of space travel.

Linda; I am looking forward to lots of beach walking. I grew up walking distance from the beach and have lived in this particular neighborhood before, so I have walked these roads and beaches hundreds of times in years past. I can still walk the conservation area where Sammy & I hike every day; it's only a short drive to get there from my new abode. And there are lots of other woods, conservation area and a big state park near-by, too, if we want to branch-out.

I'll be sorry to miss the late-fall/early-winter daily views, too; but your Frost lines are so appropriate! Gotta move on.

I'm so glad to hear that you've got three new jobs! Hooray! What wonderful news!

Hope you have a good day, too. I have my usual work to do, boxes to pick up from the local liquor store so I can continue packing and I need to get another coat of varnish on the table I'm refinishing. I've also decided to put a coat of varnish on my oak chairs just to freshen them up. We're supposed to get into the 60's today- maybe our last warm day of the year - so I'd better apply all the varnish I can!

I also hope to meet up with Coopswife while she's in the area! Fingers are crossed that we can get together during her Cape Cod visit!

Wonderful pics of your new view. I don't have to tell you that ocean and sky can be as changeable as the woods. Sometimes the changes are more subtle at times, but I'd certainly enjoy that beach walk as much as the leaf-peeping.

Are there good public places you and Sammy can go if you need a fix of woods-walking?

Moving's a hassle (even though it is one I enjoy), but it's great that you'll be closer to family. I'll miss your daily pics the rest of the year, but as the old poet said, "The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep"! Kind of gives new meaning to those lines of Frost!

Have a good day. Things have changed radically in my work life. In two days I got offered three jobs, and I took them all. Waste not, want not. I'd love to cut back on work a bit, but I'm no fool. In this economy, where so many people are cutting back on having their boats kept up, it's no time to be refusing work!

Janet; Thanks so much! My new view won't be as scenic; the best window view I'll have will be over a big old apple tree, but I hope to eventually put in a pretty garden area near there.

The beach is Monomoy Sound, which is part of the Atlantic Ocean. If check out the South Chatham coast line, you can see that it's a crinkly shore sheltered by an outer beach to the east, which is what you see in the distance in some of the photos. And yes, it is cold in the winter- but that's okay. When I moved to Florida for 5 1/2 years, I came to love the state but found that I really missed the change of seasons. I appreciate them a lot more now. :-)

So sorry your are having to move on. We'll miss your view...maybe you can start anew with your view also.
It looks like a beautiful bay (?) to stroll. I'll bet its cold in winter. I hope you have a kitchen window :D
Good luck.

Bug; Yup, I'm moving. I don't want to, I just can't afford to stay here any more. When my ex-husband and I took on this rental we had two incomes and this place is just too much for one person to carry. I'm moving to another above-garage apartment that's slightly smaller but much cheaper. It's nearer my daughters and grandkids, walking distance to beautiful ocean beaches and has an existing veggie garden that I can take over, so there's a lot to be said for it. But I will still miss this place.

This is where Sammy & I will be walking after we move:

What a lovely picture out the window!

You're moving? You're going to be hard pressed to find a place as cute inside and lovely outside, as your current flat.

Will there be woods for you and Sammy to walk?

Janet; I love my kitchen view, too and I've been very lucky to have such a beautiful scene right outside my windows for the last three years. Sadly, I'm moving at the end of the month, so I lose my lovely view in a few weeks. :-( Enjoy these wonderful fall days and have a great weekend.

Numberwise; Thanks so much for your kind words! As I said to Janet (above), my daily photo series comes to an end at the end of this month, so I won't be able to post for the entire year of 2012 as I'd originally intended. I wish I could stay here indefinitely, but- alas- it's time to move on.

Beth, I've enjoyed your daily photos. You have been very diligent and faithful about posting them! We see the change of seasons, of course, but it's also interesting to study the details in the varying conditions - time of day, degree of overcast, direction of sunlight, and even rain. You've done a great job!

I love your kitchen view. Sadly this house does not have a kitchen window. A first for me. I hate it! I probably get the dishes a little cleaner now that I have no view to distract me. This is my favorite time of year also. Max & I were swinging on the back porch earlier saying how we could put up with this at least 6 months of the year.

Happy Saturday

Linda; Good morning! Our fall leaf color tends to be later than the mainland, too, because our fall/winter weather is warmer than what they are experiencing (and you're right, the ocean does often moderate our temperatures, but our spring season is colder than the mainland because we take longer to warm-up) but also, that 'view' is green because it's mostly oak and pine trees. The oaks always seem to be the last to turn color and. of course, the pines are green year round. This is the view from my kitchen window- much more fall-like.


Hope you have a great day and may no bugs, duck feathers or any other wind-blown debris end up in your wet varnish! (Been there, done that!) :-)
