We're in!

The imminent snow storm held off, Angel's wonderful movers pulled into the driveway right on time, Robin and Tom arrived with a gallon of coffee and mucho donuts and we were off!    I took very few pictures during the process....We were moving way to fast to stop for a photo opp.    In 5 hours we were mostly all into our sweet little cottage and out of our wonderful home of 39 years.    Its OK.....times change, things change, needs and wants change.

The first time I looked up, the truck was empty and it was pizza time - Thanks Tom and Robin!

Sasha wonders how long we're staying in this hotel? As long
as Dave is here, things are OK

Robin directs furniture traffic

Ah......we're all in
time for dinner and sleep
The four of us went to bed early and slept the sleep of the exhausted.   We have a bit to clean up at the farm, I have to call the estate guy to come with his big truck, but we're in and we're happy.   We'll settle what we can and by the end of March we'll be in Beluga heading west.

what does he see?
Dave and the dogs got up earlier than I did this morning,  nothing unusual in that.   When I came out into the "great"  (and I use that term loosely) room,  Lewis was sitting by the sliding glass door, watching something intently.   I figured it was the muskrats trying to keep their breathing hole in the ice clear, but when I stepped up to the window I saw what someone wrote in the lakes covering of snow......
Oh Dave.....I love you too!


  1. This is so exciting! Your place already looks lovey and cozy and "just right". Would it be too sappy of me to confess I got tears in my eyes when I saw your lake message? That is so sweet--and perfect for the first day in your new home. So happy for you and looking forward to meeting up in warmer climes eventually! Enjoy each day.

  2. I just realized I wrote "lovey" instead of LOVELY...but I think both are appropriate somehow. ;-)

  3. YAY! It's hard for this So Cal girl to imagine moving in the snow...but you guys managed like the troopers that you are! What a wonderful feeling it must be to be settled into the new space and just about done with the old space.

    Dave is such a sweetheart!

  4. I am so happy for you and Dave...enjoy your new home for a few weeks before you hit the road!
    I think Dave definitely has his priorities in the right sweet!

  5. Yep, a bit teary eyed here too :-) What a wonderful first morning greeting! I thought our moving day in some rain was inconvenient, but looks like you guys had a great snow team. I'm so, so excited for the four of you!!!!

  6. Awwww that is the best ending shot! What a sweetheart and I'm so glad you are in and the best part I read was "we are happy"!!!!! I totally understand the feeling - I've been in my place 21 years and I see in the distant future that it will change as well.

  7. Ahhhhh How sweet! Dave gets our big thumbs up!
    I can't imagine moving in the middle of winter or even selling a house in winter in the middle of some serious snow ! I guess we don't do that in CA.
    But, Congratulations Sue and David, now you can really really exhale!
