I am Home

Yesterday afternoon, I packed up my computers and brought them back home again.  I knew it would be a late night and I didn’t want to be doing this in the middle of the night.  So, I brought them back and got them hooked up before heading back to spend my last afternoon with Toby.… Continue reading I am Home

Still Waiting

The original waiting time from the exchange of possession date of the house was to be 2-4 weeks before I receive the money.  We are now at the end of week 1, so that leaves 1-3 weeks left to wait. As you may have guessed, I am very impatiently waiting for these funds in order… Continue reading Still Waiting

Life Goes On

Well, I am officially no longer a homeowner.  🙂 But, it will still be 2-4 weeks before I have been paid for the house that I no longer own. In the meantime, the water & hydro bills have to be processed, so the lawyer can pay the water bill and the loan on the hydro… Continue reading Life Goes On

I have found that a little Goldfinch… Continue reading Flower Update & a Bird

Flower & Moving Updates

My tall Iris flowers are now out.  The only problem with the tall Iris plants is that they go down in the wind, and wind is certainly not uncommon here. I got a couple of pictures a few days ago and then I took one picture this morning after they were mostly on the ground.… Continue reading Flower & Moving Updates

It’s Finished

My Handyman Connection’s guy Chuck came back yesterday morning and finished fixing my sun room wall.  🙂  It looks so much better than it has all summer.   He also climbed up to the eaves and fixed the downspout, which is where the water came from that got into the a joint that wasn’t joined properly.… Continue reading It’s Finished
