Homeless.......

.................for one more day!!!!!  Tomorrow at 11:30 am central time zone we will be signing for our house , paying the down payment and receiving the keys!! Let me hear a WOOOHOOOO!!!  OhMyGosh i can hardly believe its here..... I have so much to catch up on and share with you guys so many pictures to show...and stories to tell..... I will hardly know where to begin....  I'm afraid we have to hang in there a little longer....  We sign the closing papers tomorrow.  May 12.... then May 13 we have the carpets cleaned... May 14th the moving truck arrives .... and we can start to offload... May 15 two moving men arrive to help us offload the heavy stuff ( frig.... washer/dryer.... entertainment center....etc.... 

We haven't decided what internet service we are going with yet . But once we get all set up with the desk top i will be back to share everything with you.... Hubby and i took some time this afternoon and just walked around our new property..... and i could just feel some of the tension falling away... Its all gonna be okay.......Its beautiful and quiet... we saw 8 deer while we were there.... The house is grand lady from the 1970's.... she needs some TLC to help bring here into this century and we will do that slowly, hopefully without losing her character... I can't wait to show you you!!! Hugs! deb

I Have News!!!!

Well..... have you been holding your breath????   Oooops maybe that was just me ..lol  Are you sitting down??? We have the appraisal results!!!   And ....AND it looks good for us. Things are moving ahead albeit slowly..... There is movement in the right direction .....Now the seller wants to push off the closing date from Apr. 27 to May 12.... sigh i really don't know how much longer i can sleep on an air mattress.... :)  

We found a way to let Jinx out of his closet. We managed to block off the other cats in their bedroom while they nap the afternoon away ,then Jinx can roam around the house and sit in a window and talk to the birds and really just be himself...

We are scheduled for a tour of the house tomorrow. So excited! I'm sorry still no pictures... STILL on a little notebook. I'm sooo glad you stopped by for a visit... I'm so ready for things to get back to normal.   normal ... whatever that is ...I guess OUR normal...big Hugs!deb

Update!!!

Hi! Hi! Hi! Everybody!!!


Or anyone who might be checking in ��  We made it to Arkansas all in one piece. But we are still in limbo.... Waiting for the house we want to appraise ...the latest excuse was they couldn't do it while it was raining... seriously ??  They've been putting it off for a week now ...its kinda hard to retain your sense of humor when you are sleeping on a blow up mattress and your cat is locked in a laundry room because your really wonderful hostess just happens to have two killer cats.... uuugghh....

Anyway i just thought i'd pop in and let anyone who was checking know we arrived and we are still not settled but hanging in there.  i'am down to working off a Notebook and i miss my desktop soooo much i just do not see me posting much until we get settled  But i will check in! Big hugs!deb

Its early Saturday morning...... the house is quiet...everything packed ... upstairs is empty.. downstairs is just crazy for lack of a better word.... the frig has been emptied... the washer drained and left to dry..... donuts and coffee and sodas ready for the helpers...the truck is parked out front......And soon all this ... will be in there... somehow... Wish i could just fold my arms and blink or wriggle my nose and it would be done but nope... there' some manual labor involved..lol

I got up early to enjoy the peace before the storm which is something i tend to do before a planned crazy day... It centers me... Allows me to be a better me in a stressful situation.....  I also got up to enjoy the Lunar Eclipse... The Blood Moon.... It was beautiful. I always like to think of our ancestors...... you know waaaay back before they knew what such things really were and how awe inspiring and fearful it must have been to see the moon darken and turn red.....

And i wanted one more chance to write a post and visit with my Tea People before the computer desk top gets packed this morning.... I'm not sure how things will work on the laptop. I never use it except when we travel....But i'm hoping i can at least use it to hook up to the tea party if i already have the post written... We'll see...

These hummer pics were taken early last week. I had hubby take a few more Friday and i will post them when we get settled. You can definitely see the iridescence in their feathers starting in the pics i will show you then. Its amazing how messy it is getting around the nest... I don't think mom can fit in the nest anymore so she sits around the nest and poops...uuughh.. thanks mom.... :) Well everyone its time to start waking up the household... Stay safe and i'll see you on the flip side.... Hugs! deb

Color My World Purple............


This post is from a couple years ago... a few of you might remember.. I loved this project.... It was tedious to do but the endgame was worth it..  I don't say in the post but the seed pod is from a magnolia tree... I finished off the top of the pot a little nicer but darn if i can find that photo...  I hope you enjoy my recyled craft.. Linking yet again with Elizabeth's crew.....Hugs deb


............each little seed pocket has taken at least 3 coats of purple and i still need to go back and 
touch up the green here and there.......I've run into a snag .....again........that requires a trip to the craft store.........maybe this weekend...........but i wanted to at least give you a peek in the direction i'm going......


..............can you see them???little glass teardrops!  These are not glued in yet as i'm still doing touchups on the paint but i wanted to show you where i was headed..........the snag is not all the seed pockets are large enough for this tear drop........some are quite small....barely open and the smallest i will just leave painted purple but some of them are open enough i could stick a smaller glass bead in there....so.....i will take a look this weekend and see what i can find...........

So what do you think ??  Cool?........pretty? I've been wondering if i should top off the tree with anything...a star ? If i do it will throw it right into the Christmas realm but if i leave it with no topper i could probably get away with displaying it all year........thoughts?  Ideas for the base are coming along...the trick is to make the base heavy enough because the seedpod is pretty top heavy. Well wish me luck! Have a wonderful weekend! Suppose to rain here......100% chance Fri and Sat.... Good days to hibernate and craft! Hugs! deb
