Whew! It's been a long few weeks! We arrived in Arizona last Thursday and just got the internet installed this week. Had a few problems with it, but seems to be going good now :) I missed my online friends!
Anyhow! The last week or so in NC was tremendously crazy! Getting the house ready for sale (re-painting some ceilings and trim work that I had paid someone to do, but....well we won't go there!) Oh and packing, I ran out of boxes...sigh...had to change the truck size as well. The house is empty and for sale if you know of anyone moving in the area ;)
Our trip out here wasn't too bad. Four full total days of driving. The animals did much better the last 2 days when we didn't medicate them....figures! One of the tires of the car carrier got a flat so we had to get it replaced outside of Amarillo, TX. As I was driving, I didn't get to see as much outside as I wanted to, but what I did see was beautiful, flat, and hilly/mountainous. I sure wished we could have taken more time to enjoy the areas we passed, but hubby had a deadline :(
Now we are pretty much settled into our temporary quarters, once our house is sold, we'll be moving again. As much as I love the charm of this old house, hubby's boss prefers him not to live where he works, and for other reasons, so don't we. We are thankful that we did get this place as having pets makes it hard to rent.
Oh..you wanna see pictures I bet!
Three stories! Old calvary officers quarters....the stories it could tell!
I love this porch!! Once I get some chores/paperwork done, I plan on hanging out here a lot! Knitting and spinning! Oh, how a hammock would be so awesome huh!
This view is looking out from the porch.
Beyond those trees is the Community College where the Farmer's Market is. I plan on being there bright and early this Saturday to check it out.
When I first walked into this room, I claimed it for my own! (heck we only have 5 bedrooms, living & dining room, etc...) It's pretty empty too, 95% of our stuff is in storage.
Those shelves are built in and wonder just how many things have lived there before....
Here's the after! It's pretty cozy and close to the kitchen. I spend almost all my time here! Funny thing is, it's the room with the most stuff in it too...priorities right ;)
It also doubles as an office. Daughter is waiting on a USB wifi adapter so her computer will work, I have to share mine ;) BTW, she has the entire 3rd floor to herself. Her own bathroom as well. We spent the weekend assembling furniture (trying not to think that we'll have to dis-assemble this furniture again...)
Love my sitting area! (someone else does too) I can see outside, feel the breezes and just relax (or try to).
Oh and for knitting content, that bowl at the base of the stand is holding this...
Stripe Study Shawl My colors blend together more than being very contrasty, but I like it.
In a nutshell, we're slowly getting used to the 3 hour time change, mile high elevation, and dryness. Saline spray and lip balm is my best friend right now ;)
So what have you all been doing these last few weeks?
