sunday

Finally...a change for the blog. We've been busy moving. Moving is not for the faint of heart....seriously! (Or for the faint of back, for that matter!) We move things every night and there is still more to move. None of the guest rooms have been moved yet....but we aren't in a big rush. I suspect that we'll finish up by this weekend. The dogs are finally settling in! They acted like neurotic lunatics for the first 2 weeks! They miss their old house. They have a much bigger yard here, though. The fence was completed last week so they are able to run and play now. Tommy and I have settled in, too. It is starting to feel like "home" here. Wherever the 4 of us are is "home" to me.
Had the pleasure of photographing Meg and John this week...and then attending their wedding on Saturday night. It was beautiful...such a happy occasion. We wish them the very best!
Here is a shot of the new house prior to moving in. We came here directly after the closing. Such an exciting time. We wanted the dogs to see it and give it their approval. They are not used to hardwoods....so they slipped and fell while rounding the corners at mach 80. Much to our dismay, the dog's claws and the hardwoods are not a good combo. Oh well, a house is for living in, right?

Some random things...
We are enjoying the cooler weather. I love fall! I am looking forward to a trip to the local pumpkin patch and winery.
My grandmother is finally feeling better (Thank God!) which is a huge relief. She is 89....so I was worried!
Tommy and I found a new church that we love! We are happy and optimistic about the new opportunities that lie ahead.
Our new house has dimmers on every light...we love our dimmers!
We were in the middle of a massive cleaning/putting away on Friday night when our electricity went out due to the storm. I was stuck in the middle of huge piles of stuff and couldn't even see my hand in front of my face to get up and find my way to a candle. There was alot of tripping and stumbling. The good thing was...it forced us to go to bed. We were tired, and we were able to get some much needed rest.
My feet are revolting against closed toe shoes! OUCH! I have been so used to sandals. My feet and back aren't making a smooth transistion at all.
I miss reading. I haven't been reading any books because I am trying to put things away and get organized....which usually leads right up to bedtime. When I get a chance, I plan to read Night (by Weisel) and Dr. Phil's wife's book.
I want to see Little Miss Sunshine.
I want to whip out my sewing machine and make 15 feet long window treatments. I want to go to the fabric store and find the exact fabric I'm looking for for 95% off.
My eyes are slamming shut now.....I'm off to bed.
