Back After A Brief Hibernation

Posted by on Mar 3, 2015 in Blog, General Chaos | 4 comments

As many of you knew I moved to Washington last week which was the reason for the two-week hiatus here on the blog. I spent the week driving across the country (3006 miles of distance from door-to-door). That was quite an adventure, but if I had to do it over again I’d allot more time for looking at random stuff along the way. As it was we did three 800 mile days which didn’t leave much time for sightseeing. And all of that speed ended up being for naught because we sat at the new house with none of our stuff until Saturday.

Anyway, all of that aside the move has interrupted my writing quite a bit, and I don’t anticipate a return to regular words on the page or submissions for at least the rest of this week as I unpack the plethora of boxes and try to figure out where everything goes in the new house. I’ll attach some pictures at the end so you can see the new digs.

I’m so in love with this new house. Lots of huge windows and the property is really gorgeous. This is a beautiful place to live and I’m so thrilled we could finally move somewhere a bit more us. We have a few issues to sort out (lack of decent internet and a minor invasion of yellow jackets in our kitchen) but overall things have gone, if not smoothly, at least as well as can be expected considering the distance we moved. I can’t wait to start gardening and learn all about the native flora and fauna of the area. As soon as I can find my real camera I’ll start taking pictures of everything and bore you to death with all of them.

Okay, that’s all for now. I just wanted to get a quick update in and let everyone know that we’ve emerged on the other side of the move well and things will hopefully get back to normal soon.

Hearts and puppies,

  1. Congrats on a successful move! Your new home looks gorgeous. Amazing deck, and such a nice office-to-be. Happy unpacking and happier gardening.

    • Thanks! Unpacking is kicking my butt right now. I feel like I’ll never reach the end of the boxes. 🙂

  2. Glad you’ve made it safe and LOVE the pics! Shiva looks all tuckered out, lol 🙂
    Can’t wait to hear of your continued adventures in the new digs!

    • Shiva didn’t sleep well on the ride over. Too many things to worry about in the RV, plus it was COLD most of the way. She spent the first couple of days here sleeping in her new bed. 🙂
