We are all moved!

Everyone we are all moved over to the townhouse and we love it there! We started packing the truck at 8:00 Friday morning and we were all moved over to the townhouse by 2:30 that afternoon! One of the guys didn't show up so John and our neighborhood had to lift alot more heavy furniture than they expected but they did a great job! Yesterday I spent all day unpacking while John was trying to figure things out in the garage. He also took a whole pickup truck load of junk to the dump. Good thing I brought the company pickup truck home! Our bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, pantry, eating area in the kitchen and living are all set. Now I must work on the dining room and the 2 bedrooms. We only had one antique pottery jug break and that was after the move, John dropped another jug on top of it by accident. I think for all the things we have and moved that wasn't too bad! I won't be posting very much on weekends just during the week for the next several weeks. Time Warner messed up the office move so all the office things are still at the house. That means no internet connection at the townhouse. I will be posting regularly during the week though. I was able to take a few pictures of the courtyard, which is a work in progress. Here they are:

Here is my beloved fountain. I made a "grotto" like atmostphere here around the fountain. My neighbors wisteria hangs over the fence so I put the fountain in the corner and put shade loving plants around it. The birds just love it already!

Here is the grilling area of the courtyard. I tried to put some flowers and the palm tree on either side of the grill to soft that area a little.

My other neighbor has a trumpet vine that has decided to bloom on our side of the fence. I thought it looked so gorgeous. The hummingbirds love it too!

We already have my birdfeeder that my Dad made up and a cardinal has claimed it for his very own! He sits in it for hours just eating and resting and eating and resting! He's very beautiful!

Well that's all the news and pictures I have right now. I'm headed to the grocery store! Everyone have a lovely evening!

Glad to hear that the move went well and just about everything is in place. Hopefully you'll get the internet connection fixed soon.

And be sure to take a LOT of pictures!

It's good to have that behind you. You patio looks very inviting. I would enjoy watching the cardinal visit your father's feeder.

So glad the move went well and you are settled Sherri. Like the new background and your blog name is perfect I think.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
