Working getting ready to leave

Hello everyone - today was a day to work at home and start getting things ready for our departure. We unloaded the basement and repacked it and looked at combining things and getting rid of things (Like the lounger that Dan broke!) Anyway, it was a productive day. I also did some cleaning and straightening up inside - I had done some 'deep cleaning' last week, but there were a couple of spots on the carpet that we needed to clean. So Dan got the Spotlifter out and up they came - no problem.

You might wonder what this has to do with the pictures that I have posted today - well, really nothing except I wanted to show you where the girls are starting to spend a lot of time in the mornings - they like to sit up on Dan's shoulder and the back of his chair looking for chipmunks. They are really cute sitting there on his shoulder.

I also wanted you to see our new lamp that we purchased last week in West - We thought this was a nice lamp and it was a pretty reasonable cost ($44.00). I'm not sure if we will get another one for the dining room table or just wait and see if we can find something else that will match, but not be exactly the same. We are going to go back into West on Wednesday - we will do the laundry first, then we are going in to look at some Christmas cards that we really liked. We knew that we had seen the same cards in the park, but they were about $2.00 more in the park. Sooooo, we decided we would get them in West. We will also go by and pick up some bread and a couple of other things at the grocery store before we leave.

Then Wednesday night we will go out to dinner with Joyce and Kaye. Their daughter and son-in-law left this morning, but we were able to say good bye to them and thank them again for the float down the river. We gave them one of our 'business' cards so they can stay in touch with us (we hope). Now one of the things that I would like for you to do is see if you can see the temperature on the thermometer and remember this was about 10:00 this morning. (In case you can't see it - the temperature was 51 degrees and the high today was 61 degrees - I wore a sweatshirt almost all day.)
We plan on having everything ready to go so when we get up Thursday morning we can hook up and pull out. Of course, we are going to get to play a little on the way, but not too much.
Well, that's all I have to report today - I hope everyone had a fabulous Labor Day. I know that some of you have to get ready to go back to school tomorrow - so I wish you all a good week at school. For those of you that are working, I hope you have a great week at work (if there is such a thing) and the rest of us - good, safe travels. I'll look for your comments in the weeks ahead.
Until then - talk to you tomorrow.

  1. Can you believe you guys are packing already? The "girls" look comfy while they watch the chipmunks. At least they have been entertained or teased this adventure...depends on how you want to look at it!
