Dog Days of Summer

I missed yesterday's post! Poohy!

Today is what are my plans for the summer?

Well, I'll be moving. Sound exciting, huh?
I will say this. We are buying a log cabin and the decorating will be an open canvas. The previous owners had started remodeling, but sold it before they could finish. The new buyers wanted the chance to fix it up to their tastes, so it was sold as is. Those owners couldn't afford the new payments, so it went back on the market and my family was the lucky buyer.

I will be spending the last days of summer moving (23 hours from my family:()
Decorating and painting.
Unpacking boxes.

And various other activities associated with moving.

Yay for my new house!

  1. Congrats on the new house! How exciting. Moving can be both exhilarating and exhausting. But decorating is fun! :-) You get to create your own space, just the way you and your family like it.

    Wishing you warmth and happiness in your new abode.

    1. Thanks Janette! I love decorating so I'm looking forward to that part. I don't really mind the packing and unpacking either. why? Because it gives me a chance to get rid of some junk and then organize the junk I did keep in tidy, clean places. Yay!

  4. Living in a log cabin would make me feel like I was on vacation year round! Moving is awful, but settling in to a new home and making it your own is wonderful. Congrats & good luck :-)

  6. Congratulations on the new house and good luck! I'm a bit jealous. I've always wanted to live in a log cabin.

  7. Congrats, and enjoy decorating it any way you want! Every place I've ever lived came pre-decorated by the previous owners. It's so much easier to start from scratch than having to remove the chicken-themed wallpaper from the kitchen, or paint over the pea-soup-colored walls in the office. After 6 years in this house, those walls still look like pea soup. :)

    1. I've been there, done that Laura. But pea soup sounds yucky. I like tomato though!

  8. Congratulations on the new house! I don't envy you the moving, though. We bought our house two years ago and I swore I'd die here, haha--I *hate* moving. But it's so exciting that you get to decorate it from scratch! Look forward to hearing about your progress as you move forward.

    1. I'll do my best to post pictures and everything. I'm not to good about keeping up with pics. If it weren't for my children taking pictures and sharing them with me, I wouldn't even have pics of my kids b-days!

    1. I hope to have it all finished by Christmas. That means stockings hung by the chimney and the biggest Christmas I've ever had, touching the 25 foot high rafters in the family room.
      Did I just say that? WOOT!

  12. Pics! Pics! Pic! Love to see some before and after images, for real.

    Moving is exciting, but the mess and stress of unpacking (not to mention finding those lost items you know you packed) can drain a person.

    Yeah, the part about being away from family is also a drag, but get togethers are that much more special!

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. And yea, the missing items will be hard to manage:(
      I love family get togethers and you are right, the distance does make them more special!

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

I think the more I try and slow time down, the faster it goes! Why? Sometimes I wonder if there really is fruit in my effort? I mean, no matter how hard I try, like slowing time down, it just doesn't work. where's the benefits? Where's the proof? What do I have to show for my efforts? Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done. When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible. Flickr Creative Commons So, I have taken inventory of my life, my goals, and the things that matter. The things I *can* change and the things I *can* produce fruit for later use. I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach. I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change. I'm no longer going to devot

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have
