Over the River...

Yikes, my last post was April 26th. Like most of you, I have been a little busy lately. Buying a new home has occupied some of my time. For a variety of reasons but mostly because of the flooding, we are moving from our home of 38 years. Our new house is in a quiet area without flooding issues.

I suppose more importantly may be our reasons for moving to the new home. The new house, which was built in 1977, offers a quiet neighborhood and is near a park. Our new home does not have a basement but does have a family room. The new home does have a lovely screened back porch and sits on an acre and a half plot of land.


We closed on the new home on Monday and have spent the week making changes in the house to make it our home. But hopefully long before Thanksgiving, we will be moved in and living to our new home in the country. If you come for a visit, we are just over the river and through the woods. (Okay, not really, but there is a river flowing through the park, which is in a wooded area.)

Except the actually moving part. Sorry.

It sounds wonderful, I'm sure that you will love living there.

I HATE moving, but it did force me to go through stuff and get rid of a ton. (I could stand to do that now) Your new place sounds delightful and wonderful. You'll have to post inside photos once you are settled.

This is great news, congratulations. Nice house too.

Hi Molly! What an excellent reason to not be blogging. Your new home looks so appealing. Love the mature trees especially. Agree with Margaret--you'll have to give us a virtual tour when you're settled. So glad you have the freedom and time to make the changes you want to the house before moving in. Good luck.

The house looks great and it will be so nice not to have to worry about the flooding, I don't know how you managed lol.

I hope the move goes smoothly.

Awesome! Congratulations. After 38 years, that must have been quite a change. Sounds like a great choice!

Hi Mj! Good to see you back blogging again. Moving is a time consuming business! Good luck in your new home ... looks lovely!

And basements are just a breeding place for things you should have thrown away years ago. :) You are much better off without one!

Nice country home. I hear Torro mowers are really the hot ticket. They are safe also.

Pamela said...

yeah.. the house looks lovely -- and I agree that the moving doesn't sound so fun.

I think if I ever move I'm just going to have a huge yard sale.
